    Good morning all We had overnight rain to water the garden, now we have sunshine with a few clouds

    It's funny how different things remind us of different Elite, I have just been eating stinky OOD cheese (camembert) and thought of E.

    I think I'm going soft, I have just ordered another cage for our conures purely so we can put them outside in the sunshine

    That said, they will be going to a friend's house when we are on holiday and it will be ideal for that too.

    Well I think of you as our fine cheese connoisseur.

    Cheese fridge is still well stocked this year after xmas and extra bits I buy RTC from the Ts deli, as we never did do our usual cheese and wine this year.

    Some deli chilli cheese I got about month ago has started to get a white bloom, guess because it's been handled rather than pre packed, you would have thought the chilli would kill anything off. Mr TS did his usual knife scrapping and all was well. Still another couple of pieces to go though.

    Happy Birthday Emerald Have a lovely day. xx

    I've been getting all my freebies for my birthday month coming through too.

    PE free bottle of Prosecco Hope it will work with O2 5 codes. And got another offer from them for free dough balls today. I may get a hattrick if they all work together.

    Bit disappointed with my sparks one this year, last couple it's been a fiver to spend on anything. This year it's 10% off food and 20% off clothing, beauty and homeware. I have been sent the vouchers and loaded them to my card so not sure if I will get 2 goes. Maybe if I use them in certain order I might?

    connoisseur on here!

    Have to admit we are slacking, we only have 5 different cheeses in the cheese box at the moment

    We do spend a bit of time slicing off bloom or mould, can never understand why people throw away mouldy cheese. Nearly lynched DD one time when we went on holiday and she decided to get rid of some out of date cheese from the fridge, I had been storing some nice brie that was just getting ripe, it was 3 months out of date and she chucked it out We never eat brie in date

    One thing we have sitting there and have not tried yet though, a truckle of wensleydale with chocolate and orange, should be interesting.

    I've got 3 wax truckles of whisky cheese in a little wooden box from xmas that are only in the larder. I keep saying to Mr TS don't you think we should put them in the fridge now but he thinks they will be fine. I hope so, I won't be eating them anyway, don't like whisky. To be honest the larder was as cold as a fridge through the winter but now it's not so we will see.

    I've got prepacked Mexican cheeses from after xmas and they are still fine just the deli ones with the bloom. I had to chuck a huge chunk of Wensleydale with cranberry out It got opened at xmas and I didn't wrap it well just left it in the original wrapper folded over, it went green. I mean proper green through the cheese I wasn't eating that.

    The deli in my Ts if you hit it right time brings out reductions before the main whoopsie time and they are 90% off usually so have had some lovely bits of brie for 20 odd pence.

    Right, I'm off out, see if our local shop does the fabric I want, I very much doubt it but have to try.

Several other 5L kegs look to be still 10 in M (outside of Scotland at least) - they are already on the list from last time, with me querying whether they had returned to full price as I saw online afterwards. I have now seen instore again. They are showing full price online - there may be a different price instore as all of my Ms that had the products were displaying 10 yesterday.
