    I can't highlight the words "Everyone can see it" but that's what I'd like to do. I would hope not. Surely that would make me feel embarrassed? In which case, I would then not feel happy.

    The notice is also not true on every occasion completely - because if I were hypothethically to wet my pants (not sure why I'm talking about this lol) and was fortuitously in a place where I was entirely alone at all, then everyone (that is 'everyone around me', fortunately no-one) would not be able to see it. In any event, it's literally incorrect as not everyone in the entire world would see it even if it happened with some people around. Of course we all have those instances don't we when we don't quite hit the toilet bowl although fortunately no-one else is there at the time so we just wipe ourselves up, or curse about just having put the washing on and now having a single pair of pants on their own uselessly for a next wash (then has to wait days - yuck! - for more clothes to need washing in one go and the weather hopefully to get fine again). And I won't even go into other things I'm now thinking about.

    Right, anyway...

    That's when it happens, or I knock some gravy off the table or something that hits some clothes, almost always right at the moment after the washing machine has been put on, didn't quite have all the clothes it could have had and the gravy-splash clothes could usefully have gone in there. Always the way.

    Tomorrow in M will be a lot of offers having ended I feel. It will be bad. Or not actually "bad" but just take more time to ensure that I have 'everything'. I never have everything (as not everything is in my stores). There was enough change in M yesterday, which I cope with as it was all planned and catered for weeks literally hours in advance. I will start the update - they seem to have continued much of what had Sunday as a date to expire, expired things that either weren't online or didn't have an expiry date on there so I didn't have one and put new items on offer.

    This comparison surprised me slightly - I had meant to compare against S by buying the Linda McCartney sausages but M picked up the fishcakes, giving a slightly better overall APG

    8 items on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda Morrisons
    1x ASDA Pure Hygiene Family Mouthwash (500ml) 0.47 0.50
    1x Linda McCartney's Meat Free 6 Red Onion & Rosemary Sausages (300g) 2.00 1.77
    0.14x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) 0.11 0.10
    1x ASDA Wholemeal Tortilla Wraps (8pk) 0.95 0.90
    0.17x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) 0.08 0.10
    1x ASDA Semi Skimmed Milk (4pt) 1.09 1.09
    1x ASDA Farm Stores Strawberries (300g) 1.09 N/A
    1x ASDA 8 Breaded Cod Fishcakes (400g) 1.50 1.00
    1x ASDA Grower's Selection Iceberg Lettuce (each) 0.50 0.57
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.70 6.03
    +0.67 cheaper

    Yes they are on the M list vs 1 M and A has put its price up recently. There were some packets of frozen cod cakes in Iceland that got changed to a downsized pack - although the downsized pack is still, I think, better price per unit or per cake than the Mr A ones, the fact it was changed to a lower weight and number pack puts me off buying the new pack. I absolutely stocked up on the old pack when it was being phased out, right enough up to the longest BB date which is now next month and still have one of the old packs left in my freezer. I found some Chip Shaped Fish Cakes in Iceland recently, at 1 - they were actually higher weight than the old cod cakes - I suppose they are fish rather than cod - but they seem to have disappeared entirely from my Iceland after making an appearance on one visit only; obviously must have been too good price for them to keep wanting to have them. Of course they were the only thing I bought as they were the only thing I thought worth buying().

    Thank you for the mouthwash - I shall put that on the list. I may have some product down on buy in M that I ought to remove as it seems A may now have this comparable item, or else I wasn't sure it would compare or may not have noticed A had their version before (due to looking in M for the prices there and not looking in A).

    Good Afternoon

    Snap (((X)))

    Some news on little beep and his ball , bottles mates etc

    I was ok til I went out with our Poppy yesterday for walkies before work.

    Go back to last Monday 7th BH I tidied up bits wood that had fallen from fencing ready for gardener mowing the lawn.

    Put black bin out for Tuesday it was emptied before Tuesday Walkies and I see side fencing with slats got hole in half slat I had fixed twice before gone again So I look for half slat to put back its missing so I just presumed I had thrown it in bin and it gone

    Fast Forward to yesterday walkies and half slat on grass side house how did it get there after being missing for a week.

    In work I couldn't stop thinking about it and lad and his ball and what if he threw something over and it poisoned or made my Poppy ill

    By time I got home I had got myself in a right state and googled trying to find PCSO numbers. Then had an councillors.

    Looked them up and rang her and she answered phone took everyone down and was appalled what I had put up with and said she would email PCSO and council

    On way to work this morning phone rings private number I answer and PCSO wanting to know if I in anytime today because she had just read an email and couldn't believe what she was reading .

    She been earlier and came in and took statement and said she would go speak to lads dad see what's going on . If she got no answer would be about Saturday and go again to lads house and would keep me updated . Also if anymore trouble get intouch with councillor but she hoping once she speaks to those involved I will have peace.

    She even apologised for me not being able to find her walking about.

    She went to house but no answer and asked me if blinds were ever open I told her I have never seen them open so she trying again on Saturday.
