    It's not just me is it? This definitely has a green hue to it?

    Meant to be dark brown, good job I haven't attempted to actually use it on my hair. That's a 1 bargain going into the bin.

    It doesn't look quite as green in the pic as I can see here.

    Hope you are sorted now.

    All the years our bathroom was out of action at least we had the separate shower in the corner to use still and a downstairs toilet.

    It doesn't help matters that DD is expecting either so toilet visits needed more frequently.

    I sympathise with DD. I am in the middle of having a new roofline fitted and besides the stress of will it be OK the heat isn't helping the three fitters. It's a full time job keeping them supplied with drinks.
    Have just re-seeded the grass, some parts didn't take due the the heat, iI think, doesn't matter how much i water. So i put more seed and compost down on Monday on the bald patches. Took me hours. Didn't think that the fitters would need to put loads of materials down on the grass : just thought it would all fit on the patio - so no chance of the new seed growing

    Aunt (91) had fall and is in hospital - 80 mile trip to visit. He mobile wasn't working so had to get her a new one and put 10.00 GiffGaff credit on for a month so she can call people as much as she wants. Only problem is after showing her several times and writing down very simple instructions, she can work out how to make a call but at least she can answer it.

    Mum's freezer on the blink this week so had to get her a new one and transfer everything when it had chilled at midnight last night.

    My house alarm kept going off, even when not on, so have had to have alarm man out and a new alarm box fitted.

    Will be glad when this weeks over!!!

    I hobbled into T today to buy my Napolina whole wheat pasta for Green Jinn.

    As I walked out, I scrunched up the receipt into a little ball and popped it into the bin.

    It wasn't until an hour later that I realised

    What's all that about?

    Think I'm turning into Anon

    Just noticed this is down to 4.66 in W.

    Sure there's someone on here uses it......

    There's a little bit of a saving if it's still in the 342
