    I also have a 'few' tins of beans

    It's the only supermarket I can walk to so can pop in everyday

    Evening luvlies

    Wrong - full shelves of both sizes and didnt get there until after 5pm. Even managed to select the ones with ring pulls as these had later dates

    Sincerely hope you haven't got pleurisy again good job you have an appointment tomorrow.
    I'm not going to doctors if I can help it, ridiculous trying to get an appointment and feel stupid if told it will get better on it's own

    Looked at appointments online.
    Choice of General - 2 appointments available for Feb and
    Do Not Book At All - 3 appointments between 7 & 8 am next week
    What on earth is a Do Not Book At All Appointment?

    To be honest I feel a bit emotional to think that most of us only knew sal through the thread and yet weve come together to raise such a great amount of money for such a deserving cause.

    Sal would have been over the moon I know.

    She loved this thread

    Sals funeral is tomorrow at 3pm, so perhaps we could all raise a glass to her tomorrow evening. In the meantime, the JustGiving page will remain open for anyone who wants to make a contribution.

    Another funeral to attend tomorrow, a long time friend if Mr. AJ, poor guy has had health problems and I think he couldnt be bothered to look after himself

    Last weeks family funeral up at home went very well, I did go visiting a couple of black sheep but unfortunately missed out one Hill family member. Had a letter today, they arent very happy with me leaving them out, cant believe I forgot about him.

    Off to bed, back and ribs painful so have my furry teddy hit water bottle to take with me, night night xx

    Aww Sarah, my heart goes out to you both, you must be worried sick. My Mr AJ had to have a lump removed from his neck/throat, it grew fairly rapidly in the end. We were told it was a cyst of a certain name, cant remember, but they can grow back again. So far weve been fortunate, I just hope that if surgery has to go ahead that this will be the last time. You two deserve a break xx

    Just been reading about your sad news too Rose.....sorry to hear about your sons cat. I found our last cat Chloe run over just outside the house and I have to admit that I was really traumatised by it. It took me ages to get it all out of my head.

    So very upsetting.

    Isnt it odd how there always seems to be something going on on this thread.

    Just as one thing finishes, something else pops up

    Great to hear lots of people getting the beans
