    Good morning everyone.



    I have had dry lips aswell, and cracking, the best thing I have used for the last few days is Blistex Moisturiser, it smells a bit like toothpaste, but it sinks right in, put loads on when you go to bed.

    So today I was meant too of been going to Cheshire Oaks as annual birthday treat from Other Sister
    But overnight developed the foot of extreme pain

    Had to take co codomal to be able to sleep - I can't put any weight on it.
    So I now have been triaged at Drs & have an appt at 10.50am.
    Other Sister coming down to take me
    But, I have to tackle the stairs & walk to the car park first

    Fourp has found a crutch & I have my thumb stick too



    Plus I'm seeing a Dr who judges me by my weight rather than my symptoms ...

    Right I need to find a sandal I can put on

    However, DS1 has told me there's a "Pest from the West" on its way. So another weather front to look out for beginning of next week I believe.

    For your information:
    Asda Price Guarantee comparisons are based on prices correct as of date of delivery (online shoppers) or date of purchase (in store customers).
    Where a product comparison price is N/A, either, a) the independent agencies that collect the price data have not found an equivalent product at the named competitor, based on the comparison criteria (see Terms & Conditions) ; or b) the product is part of a particular promotion which makes it difficult for a fair comparison to be made (see Terms & Conditions).
    Comparisons are limited to a maximum of 10 items per product and 10Kg for items sold by weight.
    All prices displayed in red are net of any multibuys savings or discounts. For example items that are 1.47 each which are part of a "2 for 2.50" promotion will be shown at 1.25 each where the customer buys the required quantity. They may therefore be a different price to that shown on your receipt or delivery note.
    Any items of George clothing or Home and Leisure items are excluded from this comparison.
    Please see Terms & Conditions for a full list of exclusions and further information.

    Talk about going round in circles.

    I have a phone I am trying to unlock, it is locked to Vodafone but I am on TalkMobile.

    I asked TalkMobile for the unlock code, they sent it and it did not work. They referred me to the manufacturer who, very condescendingly, said basically nothing to do with them. I have been on live chat with Vodafone and they said go in store where they can help. Went in store and they could not help, bar saying that I would have to have a PAYG sim with them in the phone for 30 days before they would give me an NUC.

    I have now emailed TalkMobile back to ask them to try again.

    If anyone has a better idea please tell me. I have even asked someone on ebay if the fact it is locked to Vodafone but I am using it on Talk Mobile but I really don't think they understood the question!!

    Then I sat down and typed this out and lost it the first time.

    Please excuse me while I go and bang my head against a brick wall!!

    Do we all know about the change in recipe to full fat Ribena.

    Nothing to say on the label it now contains sweeteners.

    I had to go on a hunt for the old recipe today for DD1 found some small bottles for 2.49 gutted the big bottles almost double the size were only 2.50 but the new recipe.

    Lots of unhappy people on FB and twitter.

    Bless you mrsmac

    When my cancer spread to my spine last year, I received a Blue Badge. But the looks I got from some people when parking in disabled bays at supermarkets

    The last time I used it was months ago when I was with my wife and daughter - and a man walking behind us shouted to me it must really hurt

    Im a proud person, and I will do my utmost to hide my pain - especially in front of my teenage DD, she silently worries enough about me.

    Perhaps an opportune time to kindly ask/remind people not to be so judgemental on appearances/hidden disabilities.
