    Morning all

    Much cooler here today. MG's daughter will be very glad of this - being very heavily pregnant during a heatwave is not a good thing for her! Anyway, she had the baby last night, a first grandson for MG

    Dear Glitch Fairy,
    Now I know we had this conversation a few weeks ago and I am very grateful for what happened on that day ( it wasn't a glitch but a very nice gift )
    However you're still not pulling your weight my love are you? You don't get your title easily and at this rate we may have to discuss whether you can keep it.
    Now thankfully we have N1LDA and a sterling job they do but poor wacky is having to work harder and harder with all of izzeyb's vacations and its not really fair when its your job, is it?
    I understand how hot it has been and I haven't much fancied shopping anyway whilst the sun is shining and maybe you've been over come with football fever too, so we will give you the benefit of the doubt on this occasion.
    We would be extremely grateful if you could just throw a few glitches our way and we can then see that you keep your title forever.
    I'm sure evryones lists are different from what I can tell a coke tin glitch would be welcome, loo rolls are always on someone's list and I'm down to about three bottles of fairy liquid......sorry to take your name in vain.
    I'll leave that thought with you and hopefully this conversation will never need repeating.
    Have a nice day

    Good morning everyone.

    Better night sleep last night, a lot cooler. Fans arriving today so kids will stop moaning


    Good morning. Has anyone got the kettle on. I am desperate for a nice cup of tea but have no milk apart from those horrid little sachets.

    Unsure sc but I know where you're coming from. I've never known our water butts to be so low. One more decent water and they are empty. A good opportunity to clean them out I know but there is no sign of rain on the horizon.
    Does anyone on here use bath water for watering flowering plants? Do the chemicals in soap have any effect on them?

    Still plenty of toothpaste (many years ...), shampoo, hand wash, soup, "enough" (for now) shower gel, washing tablets and dw (though even they are getting low - to be fair I haven't bought any in 2 years or so though ), even OS shower gel I could stock up if they glitch again .
