    First single I ever bought was Excerpt from a Teenage Opera aka Grocer Jack.

    I was 12 and felt very grown up.

    Good morning....Rather murky again....Not quite what was forecast....

    Day didn't start to good...Didn't much fancy getting up this morning....So lay in I did, although, I had a dental appointment at what I thought was 9:50am.....but was in fact 9:20am.....Rushed to get there....For some unknown reason I ended up in Asda car park.....Not the dentists...

    Just made it to my appointment...

    Receptionist...Good morning Mr. Marmie, What can I do for you...

    Marmie....I'm here for my hygienist appointment at 9:20am...

    Receptionist....Well Mr. Marmie...It is really nice to see you but, you are a month too early...Your appointment is in May....

    Marmie...Oh!

    Hope you have better starts to your days than I...

    Ladies and gentleman, it is nearly that time of year again, where I ask you kindly to dig in your pockets, if you kindly wish to do.

    I am taking part in Race for Life in Caernafon this year, as I spend a lot of time in North Wales, I thought I would try one there.

    I have put my link on the charities board, and I hope I have bought it over correctly.

    I thank you in advance for your generosity over the years.

    Does anyone know if the regular saver carries on after your bank account stops getting the 5% or do they both finish at same time please ? Tia xxx
    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Awh that's a shame

    There are a few "quirky" courses I don't bet at - and Fakenham is one of them. It even confuses the jockeys it seems - did you see the 4.00 pm race on Saturday when the poor jockey rode his horse to finish a circuit too early?

    No idnt see the race but DH did, but he said all credit to the jockey for then getting going again and finishing the race..but who knows where they would have finished if they hadn't pulled up...gosh 2 week ban

    My favourite ones are from waities, they have lovey patterns and are nice to drink from, dont leak and keep your coffee hot. They are 3
    I have china ones from laura ashley and one from joules but they are not very big and the coffee goes cold quick.
