    If you are using an apple device which is normally when the punctuation is affected go to settings then keyboards and then turn off Smart Keyboard. That will sort it out

    Hi Yes I got 6 bottles of the Tattinger and 9 bottle of the Heidseck so that should be more than enough for our party and not to mention the Asti for those who wouldn't appreciate quality

    Congratulations go cat x

    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.

    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!

    I need gin for the weekend, didn't get any in As this morning as it would have mucked up my APG. Mr TS says he would like Bombay Sapphire so need off to google where is cheapest ATM.

    Already have some cans fever tree Mediterranean tonic I got yellow stickered in Ts while back because the boxes were damaged. Will that be ok or is Indian tonic better?

    The wine/candles is the only think I have thought of

    Looks like I will be winging it again!

    I decided to buy a new can opener today and got this one.

    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/sainsburys-home-can-opener-130869960-p

    Just used it and its rubbish! Kept going wonky on the can and didnt cut parts, I had to go round it a few times and the can was in a mess when I finally got it open.

    Going to return it, can anyone recommend a decent can opener? I dont mind paying a bit more.
