    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

    Garden is littered with air soft gun pellets

    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

    Nearly forgot to mention.....

    Northumbrian Water......and I'm sure other water companies are offering the same....are giving up to 50% discount on water bills for low income families

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

    I did an application last week for a family and it's so easy even DM could do it

    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.

    Who's NR Locarr, or should I not ask?

    Edit: Ahh, think you mean none runners. The numbers on the list are not the actual numbers of the horse (to stop people just picking the favourites, makes it totally random. Looks like 2 people on each list will get none runners, a bit unfair, but it is the luck of the game, and in the rules, I did say.....Oh, and if you pick a non runner/donkey/3 legged albatross, tough!
    (Knowing my luck, I will have one of them.
