The Chancellor Rishi Sunak will be joining Martin for a live Q&A this afternoon to discuss the cost of living support package being announced today - you'll be able to watch it live HERE on the MoneySavingExpert website, stay tuned for more details
O/S Daily Tuesday 28 February 2017
This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!
As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.
Hugs to those that want/need one x
Happy birthday to those with a birthday x
Now getting light here, drying up underfoot, yesterday started off with some sunshine then get steadily clouded over and we had some rain and dark clouds etc, today is forecast much the same, cooler too.
DH up and gone to work stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work, and DS2 still in his pit, I'll wake him shortly.
Dinner last night was smoked sausage and mushroom pasta in creme fraiche sauce, menfolk had a breaded chicken portion each with theirs' apparently there's not enough meat in it without the extra chicken! Tonight's dinner has gone a bit wrong already - I got the meat out to defrost overnight to make a beef casserole in the slo cooker so it was an easy meal tonight - the meat hasn't completely defrosted so can't put it in the slo cooker, so that's back in the fridge and I need to organise something else, I'm thinking of jacket potatoes, cheese and beans/tuna & mayo, I have enough bits in the fridge to also rustle up a side salad.
Yesterday work was manic, we had a queue both sides of the double doors before we opened - so we knew it was going to be busy before we started. It was just relentless all morning and into early afternoon, but then did ease off, the travelling fair is here at the moment and uses 2 of the main car parks so parking is limited - a lot of local people don't come into town whilst it's here, and I think that may be the case from today. I do know that there's 2 customers that are coming back today for assistance with long enquiries that didn't get sorted yesterday.
Keep safe and well x
