    It's Grand National Day Tomorrow. We have done it in the past, so against my better judgement, as I am carp at organising things, we should try to raise some money for good causes. Usual rules apply. Pick a number, copy the list (highlight, then press Ctrl 'C'), then paste it into a new post (press Ctrl 'V') and I will do my best to keep up with the chaos. I will request someone as my trusty person who will keep a copy list to the horses/corresponding numbers to make sure I don't cheat. The winner gets to choose the cause and we all pay our 2 to that cause. I hope im not breaking any forum rules, as all charity links/donation links will be put onto the relevant forum section. As ever there's no obligation to take part at all, and if it all goes breastage up, blame Bubbs Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!

    I have been pants at glitching recently as my bank account shows.
    When life gets mad and then a touch of black dog it all goes petong.

    Poor baby, try an incontinence pad the type for in a bed , I was fortunate had a load for under my arm when needles are in, then just wiped her down with baby wipes saved such a lot of washing, actually if you can get a training sheet for a toddlers bed that would do.

    Not a Grand National fan but that is me

    Count Arthur Strong last night was so funny & we had booked front row seats last year so plenty of leg room to stretch my poorly leg

    We decided to catch early train home but I had to take some shoes back to QVC before train
    QVC opens at 9am - train goes 9.27am...

    So we discovered we had no mobile signal in PI & my room didn't have a telephone & Fourp was on a different floor
    But I was awake when he knocked & so we were queuing outside QVC at 9am but could see them inside watching us
    Galloped in - spotted a new pile of 1.99 EMU boots, quick rummage & find a good pair for tweets
    Also the EMU Delegate boots I walked away from yesterday were still there for 25, they lace up, so I can get the crook foot in them
    Did exchange & luckily I was alert as SA tried to charge me 34.99 for the 1.99 pair
    Then off we shuffled & caught train & then I limped to Ts so I don't have to go out again & relax

    There's glitches still around. Izzeyb found a brilliant soup one last week.......I sure your glitching skills will come flooding back

    You've just made me think of something.

    I was in the library yesterday and they've opened a section on mental health for children and teens and there was a book explaining low mood, depression and that bloomin Black dog
    There are some brilliant books out at the moment for youngsters who are suffering and struggling to come to terms with it all. Mental health provision can be patchy in places, CAMHS are inundated
    I'm not saying self help is the answer but it may be worth exploring your local library if you feel youngsters need a helping hand.

    Thank you for your kind suggestions. Has anyone tried dog nappies, the washable ones. Though my children wont forgive me. Poor Millie our dog can t go for walks now, just likes to ride out with my husband and van in their vans.
    My sons was watching her in her sleep the other day and said she was so happy running along in her sleep, barking away. She used to run like the wind.

    The Emu boots look lovely thank you Snap

    I didn't realise how much washing I had so have hung some on line hoping they will dry. No wonder I couldn't find any clean leggings end of week so found a pair with hole in leg our Poppy did and wore those no body noticed

    Please get the word out if you know families who are struggling.

    HOW TO REMOVE DOG URINE SMELL FROM CARPET
    If you really need to remove dog urine smell from carpet fast, give this do-it-yourself method a try:

    Grab a generous amount of cornstarch and apply it directly onto the urine stain. Use enough to cover the entire surface area.
    After letting the corn starch sit for about 30 minutes, rinse the area with water.
    Using a cloth towel or paper towels, press firmly to absorb any remaining water.

    Hope everyone has installed the Peeza Heckspress app for the free peeza. You can still get it by downloading app and filling out porfile details. Also there is a free hot drink from 16th to 22nd April.
    Erm It's COUGH my birthday on Munday, so got a fwee bottle of that awful stuff Presseco. or 4 yucky beers OR SIX soft drinls or bottles of water, requires at least 2 diners and cannot be used in cunjunction with any others promotional offers etc. Wonder if the fwee pizza could slip through, so 2 go, pay for one pezza and get 6 soft drinks? and one of you gets a free coughhee?

    Oh cooughee CAN be used with other offers.
    Not checked but yoppymail may be your friend and I accidentally put in wrong telephone number two.
