    I got my Kellogg's today for Shopmium.

    Now down to 2 a box.

    There must only be 4 bowlfuls in it

    Just as well it was free.

    I stood ages wondering which flavour to buy. I think my brain is on a go slow

    Please check your app is working, another of mine has stopped working overnight.

    OH though he was going to be Ok as he has just got a new phone and he has been through all the business of moving the apps etc. This morning though OHs 000002 app also went south so I had to top his app up - went online and created an account.

    Just have to remember to switch sims and make a call in the next 6 months - maybe one of the premium numbers not covered by my own threesim.

    I suppose it had to come eventually - the need to have a topped up 0002 sim - sadly you have to pay for your pleasures in this life . But the top up costs will be soon recovered - our neroes hot chocolates are 3.10 each and the loyalty stamps are worth 30p towards the free ones.
    Also my fresh new app still had the free H&B free charcoal toothpaste so we got that after the Tuesday outing. Within a few weeks we will be back in profit.

    I just have to be online now at the exact moment the free biscuits go live tomorrow

    Also I got the Taste Inc fridge filler free voucher I won from twitter a few days ago - valid until the end of December so I am going to wait until Errant son is home on leave.
    Its on the COS list but even so its better got when someone is home to eat them.

    An update on Ronnies trip to the vet this afternoon - a month on the meds for an over active thyroid. Our vet took another blood test - vile needle so its not wonder the poor cat struggled.
    Last time they shaved a huge patch of his black silky fur from his neck and its only just starting to grow again - looks awful but at least it meant he didn't have to be shaved this time.

    Anyway the meds have worked wonders and his thyroid levels are now back in the average zone and his weight has increased.

    So we came away with a huge bottle of meds, more than 3 times the last one and we don't have to take him back now for another 3 months - although I will try and co -inside it with the annual jabs visit

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    Also tomorrow is all change day again as OH is going back to work.

    He had a very bad few months when things were gradually becoming very stressful at work and as a result he started to get flashbacks - which he didn't tell me about at first but when he did I said it sounded like PTSD.
    He went to the Drs and that's exactly what he said it was PTSD brought on by stress.

    (Inevitably he has had more than his fair share of "incidents" at work over his career. In the olden days there was no counselling or guidance or protocols, you just went back to work again next day. It takes its toll)

    Anyway he is back to work tomorrow so we will see how things go. I think he has found it an eye opener being at home with me - he has seem the chaos, bedlam and mayhem that ensues in the daytime and in the midst of this was Errant son getting prepared to go off for his phase 1 training
    By the time he usually strolls home from work home is an oasis of calm and tranquillity

    And incidentally I've had a glimpse of what it will be like eventually when he retires - not that I will ever retire myself. Instead I will be running a guest house for the befuddled and bewildered

    Should we have a sweep to guess the colour of Catherine's outfit at the wedding. No money etc just a bit of fun

    I think we should allow descriptive shades eg baby pink or shocking pink as long as they have meaning

    A 10 foot rope ladder hangs over the side of a boat with the bottom rung on the surface of the water. The rungs are one foot apart, and the tide goes up at the rate of 6 inches per hour. How long will it be until three rungs are covered?

    A rooster laid an egg on top of the barn roof. Which way did it roll?
    A truck driver is going down a one way street the wrong way, and passes at least ten cops. Why is he not caught?

    An electric train is moving north at 100mph and a wind is blowing to the west at 10mph. Which way does the smoke blow?

    How much dirt is there in a hole 3 feet deep, 6 ft long and 4 ft wide?

    If it took eight men ten hours to build a wall,how long would it take four men to build it?

    Larry!!!8217;s father has five sons named Ten, Twenty, Thirty, Forty!!!8230;Guess what would be the name of the fifth?
