    As threads are going walkabout I thought I would start the next stage of this off - I will try and do the links later!

    I'm glad the rugby had a happy ending Lyn! I hope the concert goes well and that DD gets some voice back.

    Better go and try to persuade the cat that he wants to come in before it gets dark....

    Hi all,

    I hope I am in the right place!

    I have just started my DMP, first payment due in about a week or so, there's a small flicker at the end of the tunnel, or, that could be my eyesight going, I've started with PayPlan, they seem genuinely concerned and have a lot of time for you.

    Anyone have any hints, tips or tricks?

    TIA.

    Concert was outstanding Ivyleaf but harrowing as there was a very carefully choreographed film set to The Armed Man which is an emotive piece anyway. All the wars you can remember, a few you' can't and even re-enactors for romans (Ermine Street Guard), Civil War (Sealed Knot) Boer War, Falklands, Afghanistan, Iraq the footage was actual and very violent but what a message it packed. It was hard viewing but something I feel the whole world should see compulsorily to bring home the continued futility of war...no glory in being dead in the mud no matter what the cause!

    Morning All. Busy weekend for me. DS1 invited me as his Plus 1 to our Commodores lunch. She'd invited Commodores from all the other clubs round the harbour along with the RNLI, the harbour conservancy and the harbour master and partners. DS said he knew I'd chat to everone! Not sure if that was a compliment or not lol! Very nice afternoon though, relaxed and lovely to get other clubs input too. Came back home & got dinner on for DH & I then relaxed and watched Strictly
    Yesterday was attending a local memorial service after following the band (a friend of ours playing and also doing the last post) then to the club as they were hosting the RNLI selling their Christmas cards, calendars and diaries. One of the ladies had a birthday last week and had brought cake so would be rude not to wouldn't it? I'm a sucker for home made lemon drizzle! Back home to pick up DH and back to DS1 for dinner and CA film. Got home about 10ish!
    Mrs L - so with you on the absolute futility of wars. Shame the people who start them never have to fight them or deal with the aftermath. Remember Monna saying war never decides who's right only who's left
    Small victories - sometimes they are all you can hope for but sometimes they are all you need - be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle

    I can't work out how to subscribe to people's threads. Is it no longer possible? I can't see the option for it on people's posts but I might be missing something obvious.

    Liquorice Allsorts are nicer!!!


    Lovely day out there today with some bright sunshine but nippy round the edges. Off to meet a friend for coffee at 11.30 and HWK is going to take me to try to find the nearest Aldi later today as I want some German Christmas food which we like better now than the English stuff. I already have Pfeffernusse (spicy biscuits), Mixed Lebekuchen (gingerbread type biscuits) and Lebekuchen Hertzen (chocolate covered hearts filled with apricot conserve) and DD1 has sourced me a goose breast which is now in her freezer. I want a stolen and some Nurenburger lebekuchen too and some cinnamon stars if I can find them, many goodies but I have all 10 of us at various times over the Christmas period and will have 4 ravenous grandsons to feed, not that I needed an excuse but it's good to have one!
