    I never use shirt pockets anyway and it wasn't shown on the advertising photo so no loss really. Just a bit strange.

    Spent over 1/2hr on the phone to the police tonight, when worried about the safety of a customer, to be told by a totally unconcerned bod, that I should phone 999, and ask for ambulance and they would call the police if necessary.... Useless.

    I'm amazed you actually thought the police would be helpful.

    They have always been in the past, but seemed utterly unconcerned about a elderly, confused & vulnerable person. Shame as they've been in my work everyday this week, asking me if I've seen 3 seperate wanted people, a vulnerable missing person, and various other things. (Ive been the unlucky person whose been in the wrong place at the wrong time and might have seen these people)

    They were probably far too busy catching criminals. You know, those really dangerous types *driving* at 10% over the speed limits

    Perhaps you should have told them the customer was about to drive to Milford to go for a walk (?)

    Hoping last nights vivid nightmare wasn't a premonition . Woke hubby up (as well as myself and probably the neighbours :embarrass:) at 3am with my massive screams :lol: Had been dreaming I'd gone downstairs after hearing noises and found a burglar in the kitchen .

    (Could have been triggered by the news the bloke I saw trying car doors at 2am the other morning has been arrested for that and other various offences , after being caught on CCTV and later in the act)

    The brain copes with anxiety in many ways

    Remember that you are coping well

    Remember that you have achieved a great deal and you are stronger than you think

    Today was the first time I have ironed a proper shirt and worn a tie for nearly a year!!

    Sadly it was to attend my mate's Mum's funeral.

    Looking forward to the excitement of a shopping foray tomorrow.

    And impressed at how I'm managing to get the milk and bread stores to fit in with the schedule.

    Just had the last bread roll, toasted with the last of this block of cheese on it.

    Put the bag with the recycling to put in the bin on the way down to the Shed.

    Mmm, noticed that the bag shows it to be a Lidl product.

    Realised that I haven't been in a Lidl this year.

    Saw that the BBE date is 30/12/2020.

    It seemed OK - I wish I'd kept it now, to see how long it would have lasted...

    Reminds me of school science experiments , leaving milk to 'grow'.

    I opened an old bag of flour with best before 2018 (shows how much baking I do..) at christmas . Luckily I was wearing my reading glasses to read the recipe at the time........ it was crawling with millions of tiny insects which I might not have seen if just chucking it all in without glasses :o.

    Used once for xmas sausage rolls, and yesterday for my disastrous pancakes, the new bag I'd bought may well end up the same way in a few years time. All other baking ingredients (bought loads intending to make some fantastic creations ....) have been stored away as well for when I've got more patience ..
    At least the Glace cherries weren't a waste of time buying though. I can sit and scoff the whole tub in one go without ruining them in yet another disasterous attempt .

    Weevils, if they are in the flour then check other packets of dried goods kept nearby, last year I found them in the flour and they had also migrated to my bags of open pasta.

    Yes, and weevils have often infested flour before the 'best before' date.
    They're very successful creatures.
