I too am glad I will never do another exam.

I had nightmares for years in my twenties, triggered by early sunrises. always the same..going into an exam and finding I had revised the wrong subject altogether, or I was in the wrong place.

Exams every summer from 11 plus to final degree exams.  11 years of exams every summer.  When I did my final final, I whizzed back to my rented room in Whalley Range and wanged around the corner into the drive, and took the wing mirror off.

I think they had "magnet" at Ashwoods. Only they were £12 a bulb, so I didn't bother.

pins and needles after weeding

It could have been a bite from a spider in the undergrowth. Take an antihistamine such as cetirizine or loratadine, and if the pins and needles seems to be getting worse or spreading, consult a GP in the morning.

If you don't have an antihistamine in the house, there will be late night chemists open or supermarkets. If there is a pharmacy counter, ask there, but if not, look for it in the medicines area. It may not say cetirizine or loratadine if they only have brands, you may need to look at the ingredient list.

Now I'm waiting for him to ring me.  I might go and steam clean the kitchen floor. 

He won't ring from Southern Ireland or the ferry because of roaming charges, so he'll phone when he lands at this end. That's if he gets to the ferry OK of course.

Chop them up and freeze. They are no good for frying but still OK in stews.

I was about 30 seconds from abandoning the lot and going somewhere else. I know it would have taken more time, but a bad case of trolley rage was developing.

OH still in Belfast as far as I know. There is lots of snow there I believe.

No snow here. 5C and drizzle.  The gritters are out.

I went shopping. One till out of 4 on, plus the DIY tills.  I stood behind 6 people  at the manned till. gave up and tried DIY. Till would not play with my bags. At the third attempt to scan something, I threw it back in the trolley and went and joined the till queue again. I made loud voice about needing more tills on. Eventually another till was opened. A woman with only a couple of packets of carrots beat me to it.  We then had a pantomime involving one packet being refunded, then both being scanned together to get the two for £3 price. It took ages. By the time I eventually got served, I was fuming. Thank you for waiting says the poor girl on the checkout. Not your fault, I said, but if there is a manger about I would like to rip his head off. YOU NEED MORE TILLS ON AT LUNCHTIME.   GRRR.

ID please

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
