    It sounds like you've done a good job on the garden SA. I bet your hanging baskets will look nice :).

    Still loads to do to the garden HH.

    That"s Tuesday done.

    Finished work early to take advantage of the weather while it was still nice. It's really clouded over now though.

    Still not achieved a no spend day this month as needed to pick up some plant food and hanging basket brackets.

    However today is an AFD so that's something at least.

    Nearly Friday folks :)

    Tuesday night I had less than an hour's sleep. Mr SA was snoring very loudly all night despite me digging him in the ribs and telling him to shut up. It was like being tortured :( I was shattered yesterday :( Thankfully last night he was quiet and I slept well.

    Today I went to a meeting with my new office and everyone seems really nice. I'm really looking forward to starting.

    I've been manically busy trying to tie up all the loose ends in my present job before I go.

    Yesterday had an online Mr S delivery to take advantage of 25% off wine. Added a few bits for dining room - cushions and placemats. Mr SA took delivery, they substituted the cushions and placemats, he accepted them. The substitutions weren't what I wanted so took them back to the shop at 7am this morning to be told returns have to go to Argos now and they don't open until 8am. So carted the stuff into work and went back at lunchtime to the Mr S in-store Argos. Argos said they don't take returns from Mr S online deliveries it's customer services. So back to customer services again to find I'd been given the wrong information at 7am and should've been refunded there and then. Grr :( So got my refund eventually!!! What a palaver!! Mental note not to buy anything like that online again. Stick to food/wine.

    Still no NSD, hoping for one tomorrow. Need to plan them out better. It's just been one of those weeks this week.

    Forgot to say Mr SA had a bad fall today. He's not sure if he passed out - he said he woke up and it was later. He also soiled his clothes (yet again) and has washed them. Hoping this isn't leading up to anything sinister.

    Sorry about Mr SA's fall :(. I hope he's okay.

    I would have been steaming mad about the returning the cushions fiasco :mad:.
