    Thank you. I need a nickname for you, can't shorten you to PK as we already have one of those, any preferences? Pando has a nice ring to it and my auto correct seems to accept it, doesn't want to turn it into anything shocking

Anyway, other day when family were her for a bbq, my DS asks if she can take it to her place to try it out. So a few of them go in the garage, get this old box and transport it through my garden, through my house (dont know why they didnt use sidegate ) into her car and took it home. Next day they opened up the box and there was a family of live mice in there running around. I didnt see them but sister think they were mum with babies and released them into her next door neighbours overgrown garden
    Now Im scared to go in my garage incase there are more in there.
    Im petrified of them.

    Our cats love this weather. In the morning all of the mats - the coir doormats and the Ikea Boris mats go out on the patio and the cats all take up their positions on a mat - its a bit like they are claiming their sunbeds for the day

    Morning all,
    Back again from London, how I hate that drive when im tired and its sunny outside, but I so enjoy the little boys, especially as the eldest is now talking and the youngest is copying, they are so funny at times.
    we went to a little farm yesterday, only a few goats,2 ponies, 3 pigs ducks and chickens but the boys loved it, but we were happy to put in a donation as its free, and I had a free bus journey what was funny was the 3 year old telling me how to cross the road and to wait for the little green man.....the only thing there was no little green man and zebra crossing in site, we eventually crossed the road safely

    My Boots app has updated overnight - not that very exciting.
    I have 75 points for a shampoo or conditioner so thats one of Boots own brand.
    1 off Botanics - what is the cheapest? Possibly wipes?

    Also 200 points for buying 8 of cosmetics - there were some good No 7 offers and Max Factor bundles a few weeks back. Mind you all I really need is foundation or BB creams and eye liners.
    There is so little no 17 stock left now it would be hard to get 8 worth.
    Any suggestions welcome

    Also got extra points for a 15 spend - with shampoo, cosmetics and botanics I would be over a tenner ...

    The doughnut and the cherry bakewell are one of the same, in that both pots have the same barcode.

    Up until yesterday it was appearing on the APG and giving a comparison.

    Yesterday it stopped appearing on the APG, so if you have 9 other different mullers, they still compared 68p v 35p (lights) to sainsbobs, or 68p v 50p (corners and rice) to sainsbobs

    One of ours likes OHs deckchair as it means he can lounge back to give him easier access for washing his bits Cats bits obviously!
    Yesterday the youngest thought he would also try the deckchair, very unco ordinated cat but he managed to get himself in but couldnt quite figure out how to lie down so he gave up
