    DD2 and family have gone to Rome for a few days. My 4 yo DGS was so excited about going to the Colosseum. He has seen it on Go-jetters and can't wait to see all of the Romans fighting etc!!! Think he is going to be a bit disappointed at just seeing the building. TV has a lot to answer for sometimes.

    How are you? You are so close to target now. Bet it is nice being back home. x

    I used one the previous weekend and it then went and came back but last night it was marked as expired - it never worked for me anyway and the nice chaps always had to do it manually on the till. Mind you last time I noticed it was valid for 24 hours - I know somewhere where there are 3 Neros within walking distance of each other so you could easily use the non working code in 3 shops

    Just grabbed *coughs* a few Dr Oetker pizza vouchers off the FB messenger ap.

    I know a lot of people are sick of them, but they are free food and very handy for a quick meal to just bung in the oven.

    Thanks for this I have added it to my favourites

    I BOUGHT a wowcher course to get a NUS card Probably should have asked on here first There seems to be a reasonable number of places that do a discount with an NUS card so will recover at least some of the cost back

    Sent DH to greggs with a voucher on the phone He says it worked and paid up also It did not come off So maybe next time I will just go myself

    My kitchen was supposed to be finished last week but the painter was off sick!

    He's been here today since 8am. When he turned up he asked me if I could put the heating on to help the paint dry. I put it on 17 degrees as that's what I always put it on and when I just checked, he'd put it up to 25 degrees!! No wonder i'm sat here sweating!

    And to top it all he has an electric heater as well. Window is open and back door has been open for a while also!

    Just checked my meter reading and since 8am he's used 4.27 gas and 2.34 of electric!

    I hope he isn't here much longer as I use that much gas in a week and less than 1 a day for electric!

    Evening all hope the elite are all well. Hugs to the poorly or those low in spirits xx

    I had an interesting day, but no laughing. First thing this morning there was a rescue helicopter and life boat searching out the front helicopter was very low and loud for nearly an hour. Ended up with head ache. Turns out they where looking for someone in the water that turned out to be balloons.
    Then I realised I have hospital appointment for tomorrow for gynaecological
    But had not had my scan through which I need first. Phoned and lady said s she just found request on her desk but has been of sick, so I it had been there for 2 weeks marked urgent. put me through to ultra sound who said it happens a lot she would see what she could do and ring back.
    So went out to get post while waiting dd had got us a new fancy box, I had forgot keys so remembered ds2 saying he puts his hand in top to get post. I did the same now he is very slim and let's say I am a bit more cuddly. Yep you guessed I got my hand stuck then phone rings I get it from pocket it's hospital can I get there at 2.00.of course says I not mentioning I am at home alone, don't drive and stuck to a post box. Phoned oh Help me, luckily he was only at stables. He came home after laughing managed to take top of box and get arm out and took me to Bangor. So at least they will have the scan for appointment tomorrow.
