    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.

    When Bubbs put up the photo it got me drooling. Today I bought large eggs, beef mince and breadcrumbs. I'm using this recipe. It's so simple.

    Found the Teskies mags today with the yeokens 1 off coupons

    And the yoghurts are still on COS

    I cant justify doing a comparison shop v S so will just darn well buy them outright.

    I can be reallybloody minded at times

    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.[/QUO
