Freebie and Competition Success!!!

News

I thought it might be a nice idea to share our recent finds and discuss these on Chat. Whether it be a fab freebie or a spectacular win (or maybe it's just me being super nosey so you can tell me to take a long jump!) I thought it would be fun to report what we've been receiving.

And those of you that are 'Super Hunters' you might like to share some tips.

What do you think? Worthwhile topic or naff?

sunny101 Had a meeting with the manager today. final voucher total is Β£150, which isn't much considering it was a whole kitchen ordered and all the issues and going back and forth to the store. I received full instructions today on what I'm do and not do tomorrow morning. πŸ™„ 😷

more covid nonsense I have to share. my friend has to have a flu jab and asthma check up in... the GP carpark!!! Is that a sterile environment? What about patient privacy? I said to her, I can walk past and wave to you on my way to the bus stop then. No, I don't consent to treatment in a public carpark with the public walking past to the shops. I wouldn't go if I were her. That is too much.

My parents came to visit yesterday and brought us loads of plums, pears, strawberries and raspberries and homemade chutney. They grew the plums and pears themselves and my mum made the chutney. Our son has been devouring the strawberries and currently playing with a pear.

MrsCraig What a treat! I've missed home grown plums (especially this year) as there's nothing in the shops to match them. A friend usually shares her bounty of huge sweet plums but they ripened at the height of lock-down. I'm guessing your parents have a Victoria? Lucky you, enjoy. x

sunny101 they actually have 3 Victoria's in the garden! The plums are delicious and they always have loads of them, so mum makes chutney and their neighbours and friends get plums and chutneys every year x

MrsCraig Spotted lots of plums on the floor today when I went out. Sadly they were not in good condition as I would have picked some up . They can be frozen. I don't like them but I have plum tree and mum has them all cut up and frozen.

Ceebers they are delicious. She brings down home grown cucumbers and tomatoes too. My son is fruit and veg fiend, so love it when she brings stuff. She has apple trees too but they are cooking apples, so we get apple crumble from those xx

I guess I should add had a meeting with the manager of the B&Q that has done a spectacular job of ******** up my kitchen order in every way possible. He was sorry and couldn't understand how it happened. My final voucher total as a 'good will' gesture is Β£150, only I don't think that's enough considering how it has put the kitchen back by a month, all the trips to store, wrong deliveries, etc.

Well it is better than a lot of companies would volunteer. It should not have been such a nightmare. Pure incompetence. No amount of cash can put it right. Xx

Ceebers. Exactly! I even had the kitchen designed on the computer when you go in and sit down with the measurements and say what you want, etc. This is my 1st kitchen I have chosen so I really wanted it to look good and was quite excited about it.

Ceebers I saw this and thought of you. Have you ever used one and, if so, are they worth getting? I would probably be more inclined to pick blackberries if they did.

Nope. But it would have come in super handy before when I tipped my tub on the floor this afternoon. I was reaching to get a rather plump blackberry, but unfortunately, my partially-filled tub hit the deck. I managed to salvage most of them off the ground.

Anyway, I managed to get another full, small tub today. I shall be tucking into these after dinner with some Elmea Dairy-Free Cream I spotted it lurking at the back of my fridge.

first up, I've been referred to a hospital, not any local one due to wait times, as my wisdom tooth has a hole in, is decaying, is impacted and after xray, one of the roots are twisted. See, I said I was in pain. πŸ˜ƒ The tooth has to go. And it was likely infected in May the dentist thinks when the pain went through the roof. I'm pleased I am being referred to get rid of it. Also no fillings needed! Very pleased about this as I feared I was going to have to fight to get it pulled out but as it is completed knackered on every level, my dentist just said it has to go. I've got some royal canin kitty food for my friend who has two new grandkittens. Image

There are some lovely things in that prize box. Congratulations.

sunny101 I need vodka to keep my tooth from getting infected because of the hole in it. Well, that's my new excuse for drinking vodka - infection control. 😎 I'm very happy I'm being referred too, thank you. I'm in the best mood I've been in all week - mind you the builders aren't here and that helps.πŸ˜ƒ
