    The parking sensors are driving bonkers but I just need to get used to them.

    Must also remember to fill up with petrol rather than diesel

    Just been to sainsburgs, and when I went to get a 4 pack of carling (had won one a few weeks ago) there on the shelf, was one with the code on. So much for stock rotation.

    Mind you, didn't even know they did them, don't have more than a cursory glance at loo rolls down there just to check there is nothing cheap.

    So I'm at the lottie, watching Mr AJ spreading his leaves and digging them in It's still windy here

    I said I'd go with him but I'd take iPad and sit and watch him. I wonder if the pub next door know I can connect to their wifi from here

    The wind had dropped, that's why I came out again but it's cold now and blustery. Loads of leaves flying around

    yes very true, it turned out to be a huge fibroid 7lbs in weight but I had other problems including a hemaglobin level of 3 when it should have been 14 so I was very poorly. I had to have a hysterectomy and was off work ill for nearly a year. Being so ill the weight just dropped off so I didn't have to diet as such. I was in hospital for weeks and hospital food is awful so that alone helped with the weight loss lol!!

    In the mean time I discovered (11+) Elite. Driving for the first time since op I stopped in a T's car park thinking they can't really get posh boxes of chocs for a 1p, then Martin came on the radio talking about it so in I went and bought 3!
    The rest, as they say is history, I now follow the elite thread avidly, have a hernia following the various 'repair' ops, put the 2 stone back on, am cancer clear and have retired.
