    Reminds me of a work colleague who sponsored a dog through Dogs Trust and couldn’t understand why they weren’t allowed to visit it.

    AIBU bathroom

    I’m with you on this. I replaced carpets in 2 living rooms and took a carpet up from the kitchen 🤮and replaced with was completely worth it. We were there for over 5 years with young kids and I absolutely got my money’s worth out of those carpets. I would have spent money on carpet if I had bought a house and it wouldn’t have added any value. It was entirely for my benefit. I was lucky enough for the landlord to replace a corner bath with a regular one during that time but we were allowed to decorate and I completely made it home. His comment to me when he came back from Japan was that it looked better now than when we moved in. He wasn’t wrong.

    68 days to christmas

    It strikes me that people have no intention of getting into the spirit this early on, this year. Usually people around me are already buzzing by the end of October. I’ve not started doing anything and it’s really nice. I’m actually glad my lot are getting older. My eldest, 21, moved out last week. Changes are afoot in Chez Battenberg. I’m looking forward to not looking forward to Christmas until a week before.

    Wasn’t there a thread once on TOS about favourite sandwich fillers. Must have been a slow week for news.

    The big mental bride thread

    Mine was very cheap too. My dress cost £50. I made a wrap to match. We had 12 guests following the registry office. We had a lovely meal then flew off for our honeymoon. It was the happiest day of my life, I loved it. The last 19 years haven’t lived up to that day but we’re still trundling along.

    The big mental bride thread

    She might be insulted if you don’t. Why not just put it aside in case your mum needs something in the future. I’m sure she’s done this because she wants to.

    Do you sew?

    First thing we made in form 1, now referred to as year 7 was an apron. Red striped for the girls, blue for the boys. Everyone had to make one and then they were used for home economics. I had one of these when I was little so started young. I love sewing , crochet and I’ve made a few large Bucilla Christmas felt kits. Don’t do enough now. Too busy ipading.
