    A receipt - two bananas, appearing separately. 7 different items. Why couldn't they have weighed one on the weighing machine and the other at the SS machine?

    In all the kerfuffle this morning I have just realised I have forgotten to take my stomach tablet.

    And now I have just eaten some left over prawn and egg curry from last night. And a bit of cake.

    Must be taken on empty stomach....must remember tomorrow.

    Do you read your PM's

    Sorry this one got picked on at random - I'm sure there have been many more apostrophes posted at times when I have not been here or ever caught up and the world kept spinning nicely.

    Meanwhile I just do not understand! I do not understand how anyone could ever put an apostrophe like this as I physically could never bring myself to write or type one (unless done deliberately as at the outset of this post - otherwise I just find it physically impossible to write wrongly - there must be something wrong with me). In fact, mine, without apostrophes, look odd as I'm the only one that ever does it correctly. Correct to a fault.

    Just having a nice G&T. I had not had one in ages, then had some on holiday, and enjoying them again. Had no lemon, so just added a little lemon juice, so all good.

    Morning all

    Think I need to get some stuff to put on my fence. Anyone know of any good deals please and thanks in advance
    Seen some on Wilko's site http://www.wilko.com/all-exterior-paint/wilko-timbercare-country-brown-5l/invt/0074038
    Anyone know how good that is? Our fence is old. Just needs some colour put back in it lol. Im loathe to change it as it still seems sturdy and knowing my luck if I changed them the new one will collapse at the next hurricane

    Hello again sorry i am ambushing the posts this afternoon.

    Has anyone got any good tips for removing the smell of dog pee from the carpet please ?
    I keep washing it with allsorts but nothing seem to be working.

    She sleeps in the front room so the 'best room' as it were in the house smells like a latrine Only had my new carpet 8 months too.

    Not sure if answered but I was told a soloution made of bio washing powder works as it breaks down the bacteria, have used it myself and it does seem to work.

    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.
