Had to pop the charger on for a few secs to get it started. Looks like I might collect on Halfrauds lifetime battery warrantee if I can find the paperwork. Still 8-9 years ain't bad for any battery.

Can't believe how much cheaper it is than my local Sainsbury's.

One example: JS own brand lite sunflower spread £1.35, Lidl's unknown brand (Vita dor) 75p and it's EXACTLY the same.

Some of the fresh veg isn't quite as good though, I'll just need to keep an eye on it in the fridge. Most of it can be blanched and then frozen for later use. Vine tomatoes are really good.

Over the moon for Hubby's niece. She has a guaranteed uni place without her results being confirmed.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

OOOooohhh - it's another fun packed day in my second home tomorrow

More poking and prodding in Addenbrookes' - At least it's going to be another busy one so it'll go really quick AND what's even better is that there's not much that is ok at the moment so I am not overly concerned about anything specific

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Score again!!

About to fly back from Atlanta to Heathrow, and good old BA have upgraded my wife and I again to Business Class.

Atlanta BA Terraces Lounge isn't a patch on Heathrow T5 lounge, but it's better than a kick in the nadgers...

(just worked out why - I used to be a BA Gold Card member in the 90's and 00's, when I used travel a lot and someone else paid; when I stopped travelling as much, I told them I was using Virgin Atlantic instead, and this is the first time I have flown long-haul with them since.

They must be trying to get my business back....)

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Well, friends on facebook already know but, after a slight trauma with a new job falling through a couple of days after I resigned, I have a new job - basically doing the same thing but, hopefully, with a bit more responsibility.

Fingers crossed!
