    Morning all!

    have got up this morning with really good intentions :rolleyes: the washing's hung out, beds are made, and the BM has just finished its dough cycle. so i'm gonna make some buns to put in the freezer ( i like to have at least a dozen in there), i'm also gonna bake some of twink's hobnobs, choc muffins, and if i can be bothered i'm also gonna have a go at the yogurt cake i saw on here the other day

    i thought i was gonna be able to manage a practically-no-spend-week this week, but i'm gonna have to go to asda at some point today

    hope you all have a great day xx

    oh superspam i didn't mind you going OT about your babies....i love hearing about other peoples dogs. i have a border collie X, Missy ( she's the black one in photo), Ruby (also in photo) and Dylan my 2 little yorkies and they're like my children to me :D x

    morning all :j

    hope it's sunny where you are, blinking lovely here today

    might manage a nsd but i think as i'm popping to m&s later i might get a couple of bits, tho if i can be strong it might only be a few pence as i have some vouchers i can use for milk.

  • Just caught up with all threads - Hopefully I will be having a NSD today. TBH I usually do pretty well during the week while we are both at work - it's the weekends that are the problem!

    Had a very good OS day yesterday courtesy of my Mum. She was waiting at mine for a delivery to arrive. She did my ironing, pegged out a load of washing I had put on before work, put on another white load and pegged it out, empty my dishwasher and washed the few pots from breakfast and swept my floor (I didn't think it needed doing but maybe she was bored lol). Mums are great!

    I hope everyone has a good day and enjoy the sun.
