  1. General feedback implies that its very difficult to get items. I will be looking later, obviously some deals are much more popular than others ...a Wii for £50
  2. They are great fun, I think I had them as a set from the bookpeople.

    For those of you watching in black and white the pink ball is just behind the green Used to watch it because my ex did cant be bothered now.
  4. My bf is dyslexic. He simply cant keep up with subtitles. If he tries it distracts and frustrates him so much he cant concentrate on the film. and he has to ask what lots of words are, not a good watching experience.
  5. As the mother of boys I often read their books....Skulduggery Pleasant, Alex Rider, Harry Potter etc. Also Trudi Canavan's Black magician. I still get great pleasure from them and just for myself I've just bought and read Pratchett's I shall wear midnight Not a big fan of Darren Shan tho. And I loved the tv version of The Gruffalo. The Alfie stories were some of our best read aloud books when they were little, I remember them with fondness and flicked through them when doing a big sort out. Bonting was a great favourite.
  6. Helicopter/plane/tank lessons? champagne balloon flight. His favourite (romantic) film scene reenacted. A mixed box of goodies, nostalgic sweets lots of places do hampers of very retro stuff, something to keep etc. Any ideas for a 21st?
  7. I've always used Persil non-bio but in recent months have needed a biological product. My bf has eczema and he finds Bold ok. I use tablets which go in the drawer but often use 1 instead of the 2 recommended. i find the range of products bewildering and tend to stick to what I know.
  8. Spent yesterday in London watching my fiance (not used to that yet) Pass off from kit ride. This basically means he is a fully trained cavalryman and can now do lots of ceremonial duties (if the cuirasses(?) didnt cause him a lot of pain on his neck and shoulder). I went to Knightsbridge Barracks and watched them do section work in Hyde Park and go round the canter track at speed, it was fab. Got really close to his horse. All the lads looked great in their uniforms. He's Blues and Royals which means blue jacket/red plume unlike the Lifeguards who have red jackets/white plumes. A fine spectacle and really interesting being on the inside. Today recovering from the 4:30 get up to be in Knightsbridge for 8:45. facebookers can see the photos.
  9. I am fuming. I have had to register something with the magistrates. At my local court, Dudley, because the other party lives elsewhere they sent it (after 3 weeks, althought they originally told me it would be done within a fewdays) to Coventry. I phoned Coventry who said no they hadnt got it, ring the central finance unit. They said no Coventry so I phoned Coventry back after some time they decided they had sent it to Leamington who I rang and they have sent it back to Dudley so they can forward it to Solihull. All because nobody knows which postcode areas each court covers. Is it just me.......
  10. wondering what to do with the elderberries swelling nicely on next doors tree. Not up to jelly bags etc when theyre ripe. Hoping to hear some good news from the magistrates court oh and i got engaged a couple of weeks ago to my lovely young bf. You facebookers probably already know.....
  11. Just checked, not in spam and still not recieived, never had a problem before.
  12. I havent had it unless its in my spam, not that it usually goes there will check later.
  13. Since when has a football match been an "important cultural event" that requires school to close early so staff and pupils can participate in the experience?
