    evening all, lego glitch (thanks to savvy deals post on facebook) at argos. It is supposed to give you 5 off for every 25 you spend but its actually giving you 5 every box of lego bought when you use the promotional code on their website when you spend over 25. You do need to pay online before you go and then collect at fast track. Hope that's useful to someone!

    There is something about the way they put everything together that fascinates me, think I should have been a pathologist.

    Forensic science fascinates me too. Maybe next time around, perhaps?

    In our school (a girls' grammar) you did your best O'levels at A level, and that set The Path, end of story.

    Nobody in the careers department ever ever mentioned anything remotely interesting, like anthropology, or palaeontology, or forensics, or geophysics, or archaeology or Egyptology.

    We went to Egypt a few years ago, thought it would quench my thirst, it did not.

    Unfortunately my path was laid down by a misogynistic father who thought females were only suitable as secretaries and should not have the option to study the sciences or law or somesuch. One of my brothers got to be a geophysicist though

    Thanks to izzeyb for the porridge

    Got both Scott and oats so. Told friend about oats so and asked if she wanted to go for some. We got there and she only wanted ONE box she actually knows I buy in bulk.

    Snap love the hair colour it is just how I imagine you

    I have been watching Girlfriends and thought it good , loved the fact that the main characters were not size 6 with high heels They seemed believable until tonight;s episode which was strange but worth watching

    Good night and it would be lovely to know if our missing ops were ok or see them back posting
