    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.

    Just seen this on another thread I am reading

    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

    His marks are still all over his back,we have seen various doctors, not one of them has seen anything like it.

    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.

    So sorry Sarah that your DS has not been referred on. Can see from the pic that he would be very self conscious. Like bubbs said they do look quite red to be stretch marks. Have you tried bio oil etc just to see if it would help at all. I'm sure you have though...

    Fingers crossed for Mr Dol on Thursday too xx

    I'm confused. I was trying to find something in my old Hotmail, it would not display past about 18 months. I then put in a more specific search and it came up with the older emails. Why on earth can they not just display them

    I suspect that, if I asked them, their solution would be to pay for premium (60 a year or 6 a month).

    I am leaning more towards gmail anyway.

    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.

    This is what the rash looks like, he was treated for Bartonella, but the antibiotics didnt clear it up. I have another sensitive skin son so im careful with fabric conditioners.



    Thursday xx

    But I won't be making lemonade as I'm about month behind with the housework. I'm not really sure how everything is going to be straight for Saturday yet, it's just like Christmas all over again.
