    Thank you for contacting the glitch fairy on our behalf. I have struggled to keep up this year as it has been far too hectic, so stocks are starting to get low. Toilet rolls are completely out and now making do with The Daily Mail.

    Good morning lovely peoples

    It's finished, it's finished!

    Well I thought it was finished last week, but I wasn't happy with how the slate rock edging was lying above the waterline. So emptied half of pond, removed rocks, dug up liner edge and took an inch of earth away all around. Buried liner again, re-sited slate and made good again

    Just adding another level to rock garden now

    Good Morning Llovelies



    Thanks, his update of monitor messages received throughout night but only now read as I'm shattered but have to go to work
    He has been in a special chair all night wired up to a monitor & the heart reading has decreased to 65 from 165 so all going well..
    I was still awake at 2am so am like a slug this morning.
    If he gets released today he'll have to try & get hospital transport ..


    Thanks for the ideas about Scotland touring - might be an option to try & see Northern lights without leaving the UK - she likes the idea of touring the Scottish Isles in a boat..
    Any cruise ideas please?

    Thanks for giving the glitch fairy a nudge. I've got 25 of APGs that need using by next Tuesday so prefereably something from A's please.

    By the way, there are two bottles of rose wine on COS/CS at the mo. The Grenache is 5.98 in A's and 5 in T's so should be 3.50 after APG and cashback. The Zinfandel is 5 in A's and T's so should also be 3.50.


    Edited to add, there is also Pinot Grigio, 5 in both A's and T's too.

    cruise ideas - you can get cruises that tour the Scottish islands and even Belfast - you can start from Southampton or Liverpool - these are probably the easier ports to go from.
    Some cruise companies actually pick you up at your own door so you don't have to worry about getting to the port - there is a limited mileage I think.
    When you book they ask if there are any medical problems and you just have to ask for priority assistant. At the port you will get a porter who will pop you in a chair and wheel you on - your luggage gets taken off you at the port and taken to your cabin so its another thing you don't have to worry about.
    There are also companies that will take your luggage from your own doorstep and it then gets sent on ahead and again the first time you see it will be in your cabin.
    So then you only need to have your handluggage and your medical kit with you on the way to the port.

    Companies to try - Saga, Fred Olsen - FO are very good.

    Also have a think about things like if you would like a bath or a shower - showers are easier for access but I think for wheelchair users they have sort of wet rooms. Also if you want early or later dining - I know some medication needs to be taken with medication but it might be better to eat in the buffet and there are always someone to help with trays etc.

    When you get into ports you could just have a taxi to take you on nice scenic drives or just to find a nice caf! for a coffee or a brew if you don't fancy being out all day or need an after lunch lie down.

    This one is very good and its a short one so its perfect as a taster.

    Or if you can get yourself organised to go in 10 days!

    September is also good

    They sent me a voucher for a free coffee and cake when it was my birthday. Yours could be worth much more though if you are buying anyway .

    Thank you for contacting the glitch fairy on our behalf. I have struggled to keep up this year as it has been far too hectic, so stocks are starting to get low. Toilet rolls are completely out and now making do with A SP .

    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 .
