    Good morning.

    You are a knowledgable lot so maybe someone knows .

    Is it still possible to get grants for boiler replacement?

    There seems to be conflicting information online with lots of independent websites and little information on official sites - can you go to an energy company that you are not a customer of? Only NP0wer seems to mention free, E0n don't explicitly on what so have read so far.

    Many thanks

    I had an update a couple of days ago but they are normal?

    Does that mean we have another update coming?

    I hate not being able to control the updates, that is the one thing that REALLY annoys me about Windows 10, I like to be able to do the updates when I know have time to sort out anything that happens!

    Took 15 mins. Think it was called windows 10 creator update.

    Its changed a few things when you click window sign to sign out you can also get pictures and downloads there. When you look at favourites star top right the favourites reading list history and downloads are showing on left side of your list plus those smillies are like funny look double on arms and legs lol


    Probably done other things but not noticed them yet .

    as you've probably gathered im back from London and babysitting, we have been playing safaris this week with playmobile and also the noahs ark...do you rememeber several of us got those a couple of years ago....I remember snap getting one and struggling getting it home battling against the wind and rain...
    apart from safaris nothing eventful this week, but I do now have a new blow up mattress - seems as good as the aero one that I originally had but this is a 1/3 of the price --Tesco direct https://www.tesco.com/direct/intex-dura-beam-mid-raised-double-air-bed-with-pump/556-4210.prd?skuId=556-4210 but ours was on offer for around 36.
    nice and sunny at the moment
    anyone fancy a cuppa? kettles now on

    no free tea bags either on ours for Q clicksnappy - I was hoping that it would just update overnight but it hasn't.
    One account was dormant for about 4 months until I did a few Q clicksnappy this month - I had high hopes of this one having a new freebie.

    Maybe its COS turn to have a new freebie today

    Can I ask what people use to line their kitchen cupboards?

    I didn't bother much in the old kitchen apart from the pan drawers but I want to keep this one nice
