Like that Flo. Always tie a combination of 2 carrier bags- 1 yellow, 1 purple to my car ariel when at shows. Does lower the tone when RHS members day! Too many small silver cars around otherwise.

We're doing the giant general knowledge cross word in the paper at the mo, much muttering about spellings, answers etc. No alcohol has yet been consumed, but it might make it easier. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Morning all.

Just on 2cnd coffee of the day. Did the shopping. Have we left something at checkout? Well it's not here, but then did I actually find it & pick up anyway? no idea! Daughter will get for me on way home after a work shift.

What I did do, was stand behind a silver car, same make, model etc panicing that the zapper wasnt working & knew spare one in other bag. It's chucking it down as well. OH the said 'this car got more doors than yours & that one over there keeps flashing.'..........Oh dear.

Torrential out there now. No sign of any birds this morning, poor things.

Daughter got survey report on house- hmm, needs reading carefully & between the lines we think. Back later. J.

Yes, well done Bjay- I forgot too. I think those dolls are brilliant. Set to become family heirlooms.

OH has brought back the unbelievable chocolate cake that he made last w/end. I was a wee bit miffed that he didnt offer me any then, but he's subsequently iced it with alcolholic choc icing.... Brilliant slightly warmed up & will be even better with single cream! (darent own up that had found & eaten a small bar of Milka earlier- oh heck what eating sensibly? tomorrow is another day)

Geoff- what can we say? J.

Think have a sort of menu plan for next few days. Shopping list done. Just hope I do get up early, or more likely get OH up!

OH walking back to little house & says traffic around him is murder. So will delay setting off & hope that it's eased a bit by the time he gets to Stockport. Then he's got to get past the Trafford Centre on a friday before Christmas....... solo meal for me I think.

BJay, well done! Weight loss never easy at anytime, but especially over Christmas. I know that 1 yr I still lost weight in January allowing for a piece of Christmas cake as a treat every day. That's just reminded me- am getting weighed by hospital clinic in January! J.

Shopping around here on a Friday is always murder, so try to avoid. OH reminded me last night that he's emptying his fridge of perishables, so that could be interesting & solve tonights' meal problem or it could create more problems!

Daughter has decided to leave early as the schools en route could be finishing early & it be traffic chaos.

Now I need to do a rough menu for several days- no doubt OH will decide otherwise, but we can be flexible with what's available. J.
