    Hmmm, so all i need now is something to by to bring my apg down by 1.46 so it is under 20 as its a right pain only getting 3 bottles at a time.

    Because the odd person here has a problem/paranoia with 20+ APGs shouldn't dictate or infer that you'll have one I've used plenty without a hint of trouble and been using multiple 36+ ones over the past few days without even a cursory glance.

    Yes DS had her baby this afternoon about 3pm. He's gorgeous and so perfect. Only weighed 5 half pounds which is really very small in our family. But mother and baby are doing well and she's hoping to be home by Wednesday

    I'm stockpiling for the English leg of the mammouth wedding - I think I may have the Freix.... I thought I would stick a candle in the empty bottles - as a gift for anyone who wants one!

    Have you got any of the Taittinger? DS1 has asked for it... I may just give them asti!

    Still wont refer him to a dermatologist though, even though I have really insisted, said its not needed at this stage, as hes not unwell in himself.

    The one doctor is adamant that they are stretch marks but none of the others think they are, so we are going round in circles.

    Doesnt help my son though, as his whole back is covered in them, he is very conscious of them and doesnt like getting undressed for PE as everyone asks what they are.

    Do you use fabric conditioner?
    It's the worst thing for any skin complaint. I haven't used it for around 15 years. Purchased the car coupon ones but gave most away, even though it was for sensitive skin.

I am aware that there are items, such as Jacob's Creek, on offer in M that aren't on my M list as I am not aware that they are on the 3 for 2 in A. Afaik, these are not on the A offer. Unless anything has changed in A since last week. If they are, or are now, on the 3 for 2 A offer, then I would like to know as I am otherwise ignoring them when I see them in M.

    BY thank you, hospital today, feeling much better again now and I've got clothes on instead of pyjamas, and jewellery. Talking of jewellery I'd be surprised if Megan is wearing the 30 ring we do remodels of costume jewellery all day long hers is probably Oct gold and diamond.....just my opinion.
    Have a great day everyone....just need to figure how to carry the goodies into the hospital it will be like the wine last week all over again.
