ASDA been trying to send this. Don't know if I can now. You really have something to bargain with now. Phone the area manager whether you get satisfaction or not. What deal can he do. Get firm, aggressive BUT always polite. Make sure that management above the ne store know your feelings, how you have been messed about. Play the child no food angle. Go to it Girl. Demand satisfaction plus. 

Just left foody room - footy on

I haven't put anything on abut my avatar. Meet Oscar, my lovely Spollie, age 12 years still too full of fun for his own good. Also about is Inkie, white cat with the odd splash of black and adopted cat Sophie, one eyed, fluffy spoilt by previous owner (my mother)  and a real blot in the family make-up

Meet Titchmarsh sitting on the mushroom stump. The other one doesn't have a name but he lives in the fairy dell. Name suggestions???

And I dashed out with road trip on for this photo. Charles Hanson valued a clock for me once. He was just as enthusiaistic about my old clock as he is about everything else he finds

Did anyone see Antique Road trip yesterday. A visit was made to a place I'm ashamed to say Titchmarsh (no disrespect) came from. My bluff was called when I thretened to fil the previous garden with the little fat dumpy things - somehow they went with Honey fungus!- so I was taken to it and one was chosen for me. He does have a wheelbarrow and now character as his nose was broken in the move. Yep I have a gnome!!!!
