    Well done mhoc, now you have to stop him re-developing that pile.

    If you can manage to get him to do that, I am sure I can manage to get OH to sort his pile in our room at some stage. I thought he would do it when we (read that as I) redecorated last year but it moved to the spare room and back intact!

    Afternoon guys, I refused sharpies as I thought they were the wrong ones - do they not say with shower holder in them?, anyway I thought this was a good reason to refuse them. I also refused a manky bag of mixed veg as well, but neither have appeared on the apg. Is this something new then. Items not received not on apg?

    Yes, its going to be a challenge as he is both a hoarder and a procrastinator and completely oblivious to mess but I am hoping the shock tactics of this afternoon will stay with him - I took photos of the heap - never want things to ever go that bad again.

    Its taken me 3 decades but if I can tame my OHs messiness than I think it might be possible for anyone - you just have to be very firm with them.
    My OH has made vague attempts before, about once a year but it all comes back because he did not actually pull everything out, you really have to bottom out
    I've worked on and off for many months on getting the rest of the house in some sort of order, the living room was the biggest bleak spot

    How did your OH get it back into the newly decorated room - did he sneak things back, a bit at a time or did the boxes just appear one day - I think I would have lost the plot

It then reappeared in exactly the same place after a couple of weeks of having a lovely tidy freshly decorated room His argument is that it is on his side of the bed

    I think Boden have finally cottoned on to me

    I got a £10 voucher in the post today.

    But they want me to spend £30

    Evening

    The lovely N called in today bringing with her a couple of things I asked for plus the choc buttons from home bargains and whoopsies daffs

    The angel that she is I now no longer have a floppy bandage

    Foot is doing really well nothing like the left on at all so hopefully recovery will be quicker.all okay as long as I don't catch my achilles with sudden movements.

    Stupid SD site not playing ball. I have never know such a bad website. Was going to buy some face masks for freebie perfume but just can't get logged in at the moment.

    Oh well I don't need them and this is my 7 th nsd a total 7 for the month

    Just back in from tea at TableTable. I thought our points balance was looking healthy and just realised that they put your points on before they take off the 50% code. So after every 5 meals we get a meal for 2 free
