    How is he walking now Sarah....is he getting stronger?

    Middle of the night walking is a great idea - did you meet anyone else walking about with their dogs?

    Ronnie cat, very black and tufty decided I was his best mum last night and spent the entire night with me - you do not want a very hairy tom cat cuddling up and sleeping with you in this heat

    Definitely don't want a cat cuddling up in bed thankyou.

    I have shopped everywhere this morning for fans, boys now want one and can I find a shop with any in

    Thank you . I'll probably leave this one though. We do still have a few bottles of wine left, and whilst this is cheap, it's not quite cheap enough to tempt me.

    ta for this - I was pondering wether to be lazy and just go to the Co-op for milk or to go to sainsburys and try and get the Arla organic milk for COS with 95p cashback - muller rice and Tyrells for GJ might be a deciding factor.
    I did wonder about this Tilda but its only 220g rather than the 250g specified - which is a pity
    Tilda Super Grains - Brown Basmati, Red & Black Rice with Garlic & Ginger
    The raspberries are 1.40 with 50p cashback - these would go nicely with the excess of fage

    Incidentally there is also Carte Dor but 900ml - on mysupermarket its showing as 1 litres - I expect mys has not been updated and there has been a 10% decrease in size On offer in mr T for 1.75 if you believe mys

    Hi

    Apologies for the delay in response

    Shaw Academy were deregistered so you would not be eligible through this provider


    Kind Regards,

    Well done to those that did get it though.
    Off now to cancel my Shaw Academy membership before they charge me for next month. And then the hunt for another provider.

    Good morning all

    We had rain overnight

    It was well needed and there is about an inch of water in the bird bath

    I am starting to get the stuff ready for holidays and we are talking lots of food for 8 of us so hoping it will make a space in the cupboards

    I love all this planning I think I have minor OCD

    Opened the "savings tubs" and had 144 from Easter Kids were in their element roughly counting their allocated particular value of coins

    Enjoy your day

    Maybe because I realise that DS & DDiL, despite their good jobs etc are generally bl00dy disorganised!!

    They have travelled up here when the girls were very young and had to out and buy knickers and socks!

    Family holiday in America Many emails I'll take the tea bags (I don't even drink tea, but they do!) they brought 3 lots, but no sun cream

    We have 2 plastic piggy-banks that we put 5p's 10's and 20's in and for years the girls, when they visited would love to count their 'Pig Money' then spend all of the shrapnel!
    The pigs live on top of the freezer and now, when they visit I can see them eyeing them up. Mr P now tends to put a couple of notes in each before they arrive (he's not always grumpy!"

    I think we only have rice maybe once or twice a week _ OH always tends to make too much of it and then he manages to get it all over the kitchen

    I like the exotic flavoured Tilda rice varieties, otherwise its just normal basmati
