    Good morning all, finally have a relatively clear sky today



    At the risk of upsetting TM, I adore this programme, have to wonder how on earth Nikki came back from that ordeal though, it would have seriously broken the majority of people.

    Mrs Mac, hopefully you will be able to laugh about that accident in time, but must have been rather scary at the time

    Sometimes I am grateful that I cannot drive.

    I used to love Silent Witness in the early days but I find the story lines too far fetched now and the main characters seem to have become caricatures of themselves. It irritates me now

    But dates are really good, have you got any birthdays to cater for

    And do you have the will-power to keep them

    Hello, happy new year! For those that may remember me I moved 2 years ago and stopped posting as I wasn't getting out so much with my shopping buddy.
    I must mention I haven't had t buy any cleaning /soap capsules/shampoo/shower gel products since moving, and probably have enough for next 2 years at least.
    I still keep my finger in by doing reduction shops, which have proved to save even more money and I have 3 freezers now!
    Moved on and up lol
    Had to come on today to say went to Asda today and bought the Muller's, 12 for 3.
    The old ones are the best 3.02 APG. Compared to Tesco at 50p each.
    Hope this isn't old news, but twice told better than never.

    Evening all

    Tiny, well done on your haul. Nothing like that in my store, but happy with my few bits

    I have had an accident with my car. I was just testing my hand brake was on and I have no idea what I done but the car rolled down the hill and into the neighbors porch about 50 yards away I was dangling along but no one was injured expect me as badly bruised and the car is now immobile.

    Neighbour was lovely and came over and made me a cuppa She is the same as me its only a car and building and both will be covered by my insurance

    Good morning Elite

    Wasnt it cold yesterday we went to the funeral, rather a strange affair. I didnt go to the wake but Mr AJ did, I had to go home as still wheezing and painful back.

    Awww, no, the beans are off the menu, I hope that those who wanted got them. We no longer have a Morries in town and I havent been well enough to do a 28 mild round trip. We will have to go in a couple of weeks to stock up on Mr M fresh meat.

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and special thoughts to those low in spirit and mind, youre all in my thoughts xx

    Morning peeps.

    Tempted by the QS for pressies but it's the only tin son was given at Christmas and he was disappointed and its still unopened. If it had been heroes or celebrations it would have been opened on Christmas morning!

    Good to buy with the QS!

    I needed tooth brushes yesterday so thought I'd give these a try.
    They were in the 1 promo aisle not with the tooth stuff.

    Take it the beans are off.

    My points were added correctly by cs.
    Only did the one shop.

    If going to M look out for the boxes of Jacobs cracker favourites, they were 19p in my store yesterday.

    Thanks to all posted good wishes This is my first accident in all the time I have been driving about 30 year So I am very fortunate

    Neighbour has been in to see if I am ok.

    I think they may need a new porch There is lumps and bumps all over the brickwork He was more concerned about what it may cost me in future years for insurance but its only money and I have protected no claims but no idea how it works

    TBH the street is usually busy with dog walkers and he suggested I was lucky I did not fall out and get run over I am just very happy there is no one was injured
