    Good morning Elite

    Wasnt it cold yesterday we went to the funeral, rather a strange affair. I didnt go to the wake but Mr AJ did, I had to go home as still wheezing and painful back.

    Awww, no, the beans are off the menu, I hope that those who wanted got them. We no longer have a Morries in town and I havent been well enough to do a 28 mild round trip. We will have to go in a couple of weeks to stock up on Mr M fresh meat.

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and special thoughts to those low in spirit and mind, youre all in my thoughts xx

    Morning peeps.

    Tempted by the QS for pressies but it's the only tin son was given at Christmas and he was disappointed and its still unopened. If it had been heroes or celebrations it would have been opened on Christmas morning!

    Good to buy with the QS!

    I needed tooth brushes yesterday so thought I'd give these a try.
    They were in the 1 promo aisle not with the tooth stuff.

    Take it the beans are off.

    My points were added correctly by cs.
    Only did the one shop.

    If going to M look out for the boxes of Jacobs cracker favourites, they were 19p in my store yesterday.

    You need to be really quick. Obviously staff are aware even though SELs hadn't been changed when I was there.

    But dates are really good, have you got any birthdays to cater for

    And do you have the will-power to keep them

    Good morning all, finally have a relatively clear sky today



    At the risk of upsetting TM, I adore this programme, have to wonder how on earth Nikki came back from that ordeal though, it would have seriously broken the majority of people.

    Mrs Mac, hopefully you will be able to laugh about that accident in time, but must have been rather scary at the time

    Sometimes I am grateful that I cannot drive.

    Neighbour has been in to see if I am ok.

    I think they may need a new porch There is lumps and bumps all over the brickwork He was more concerned about what it may cost me in future years for insurance but its only money and I have protected no claims but no idea how it works

    TBH the street is usually busy with dog walkers and he suggested I was lucky I did not fall out and get run over I am just very happy there is no one was injured

    Wonder if they'll be quicker next time ?

    Have we got to the bottom of timing on droid envelopes? I was in front of two santa atms which both had it and going fromone to the other I could swipe about every 10s but if I opened a second envelope in less than about 25s I got the not available message. If I had waited an opened them later at home might it have worked ok or is it the swipes that need to be a certain time apart? Thanks

    Note I google for contactless enabled atms and the first two in said were did not work but the santa one had a contactless symbol and was.

    Do you have to be a business, or could you use it for ebay?

    Very glad that you are alright this morning and not shaken up still and it was nice that your neighbour popped in.

    What a week you have had and its only Wednesday - I am thinking that having to go into work really rattled you, maybe not on the surface and it was still gnawing away at you yesterday so you lost concentration.

    To have only one bump in 30 years is a big achievement.

    Not sure whose insurance - your or your neighbours - car or house building insurance pays out in a car versus house situation.

    Morning all. I am having a weird morning

    Phone went beep and I leapt out of bed to see who was sending me a message - I keep the phone away from the bed so I have to get up to answer it.

    Last night was fairly normal, about midnight before I finally got to bed, I took a while to settle, went for a loo break at 3.30 ... nothing out of the ordinary.
    OH is up at 6.30 and this morning so was Errant son who was at work at 7.30 and he was giving him a lift as the car was going into the garage so there was 2 of them clumping about. OH brings me up a mug of tea about 7 before he sets off. Then I drink the tea, make the To Do list etc and I am always up before 8.

    This morning though when I had a look at the message it was 9.45 - that was one massive over sleep!!!!

    Car developed strange noises on Saturday and none of us could be sure which corner they were coming from so it went in this morning for a look see - broken coils and they have to be replaced in pairs so another 250 plus bill
    OH said it was strange it had not showed up on the MOT in November but with the state of the roads as they are it was inevitable something would suffer ...
