Hello :)


Oh what a morning!  I was setting up my card reader for my internet banking, got so distracted by the girls arguing I ended up putting in my pin wrong 3 times and blocked my card!  So I had to go to an ATM to unblock it & wouldn't you know the first 2 machines were broken (2 car journeys) so I had to go to the main branch which is a park and walk job.  Got home, sorted reader, went to make payment through it and discovered our robbing bank wanted to charge €15 to transfer €20 to the UK!!!!


Anyhow about to do lunch now and hoping to relax later with either sewing or crochet.  Its a bit cooler here today and it looks like it will rain later.


Fi you're doing well with your cardi - look forward to seeing it finished :P

Linda your frog prince is looking fabulous already!

Goose very good news they've found your friend.  I hope she's not too traumatised.


Have a good day all x

Afternoon ladies.


Well I've been in the garden most of the day. Just came in for a cuppa and mini strawberry tart ;) (Stakreem)..... Played football with the boys, tennis with the hubby. Castes on the left front and done the rib waistband and started on the 5th row of pattern.


Will have to continue later as I've marinated all our meat for a BBQ. Mustard and honey pork chops, hot n spicy chicken, mixed salad, flatbreads etc. my slimming world has gone out the windows this weekend!! Well i have put on 4lbs since I started 3 weeks ago :D


I will start again on Tuesday (weigh in) looooool


Stakreem- what is the app called?

Su2- that is a rip off for the transfer!! Hardly worth it!!! Pfffft

Eliza- I'm glad your daughter is recuperating. Sounds like quality family time with the grand kids.

Tracey- I like your thinking
