Our water rate would be double what I said before if we had mqins drainage. You wouldnt beleive how tight I am with the water though,   I have been known quite a few times to use rain water in the washing machine. All the water thats drained off from the hot tap until hot runs through is saved.

All fine now, we couldnt have it not working when there was Wine on offer.

Anyone won anything yet, I remember last year or was it the one before that? Dove won an Alan Titchmarsh book.

Damp but mild.  Windy too.  my dog will enjoy his walk in a mo tho.

is petrol cheaper than water now?  Will,change to a meter soon but my water bills are £1100 a year.  Water bills in south west are highest in the country.

Verdun, definitely worth changing to a meter, our water bills here are only £240 a year at the most, last one 56.00 for the quarter.and that is for four of us.  I know we have septic tank for waste, but even then would not  even double your bill. (And we bath not shower. The washing machine is on every day.)

If there are only 2/3 people in your house, its well worth it.

Lily, I wonder who provides your google because I could never get pm on the android tablet, now I have installed Chrome and can now get them. 

Also, when typing a post, the box would drop under the keyboard so you could'nt see what you were typing, thats all stopped and its perfect.

Just a thought for us tablet sufferers..

Preposterous question....

My dad is pretty handy in the kitchen too, like Frank he cooks himself a breakfast every morning, gets his own lunch, gets mum some toast or cereal for her breakfast and make all their tea and coffee.

I have known him, in the past, to cook a roast, with yorkshire puds. I think it may have something to do with his upbringing, if they wanted a dinner, they had to go and catch it first!

He has always washed his own underwear, wouldnt dream of letting us women do that, thats private stuff! He can sew and knit, he taught me.

I think a combination of sport and Navy training have a bit to do with. For almost 91 he's pretty remarkable, oh, and he has very acute hearing and is still on the ball with everything, including his ipad he had for Christmas last year.

He is definitely far from stupid.

There really is Gran and they are beautiful, when you pick them up they go all floppy, soft and squishy. Where did you hear about them, I would love one but I would think they hundreds of pounds
