    Afternoon all, weather is awful. Hope everyone is ok



    Re Nationwide

    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.

    Hi HILLBERN

    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?
    He got a 14 day ban for that

    Hope you are well

    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.

    Good afternoon Seren,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us about our Robinsons Squashes.

    We're sorry to hear that you're unable to drink the squashes that contain artificial sweeteners but we do have a range called Fruit Cordials that contain a mix of sugar and a sweetener derived from a natural source (the Stevia Plant).

    There are three flavours in our Fruit Cordials range, we hope you try them and find a favourite within the range.

    Thanks again for getting in touch.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

    Sorry about the wet weather today folks, probably my fault as I took delivery of my new garden furniture!!

    It was quite expensive but it is one of my pension, should last us until we die, spends! and grumpy knickers likes it
    I hit on lucky as I joined Kidstart when mentioned it in a weekly email, and just by chance hit on when they had 3% cashback from John Lewis and JL had a free cover and special deal


    The tags on the furniture say don't cover it so perhaps I will sell off the 55 cover!

    I'm now referring all my friends and family to kidsmart, not as good as the usuals for most things, but you get money back from John Lewis, amazon and next!
