OK, I did that one by doing what Val said, keeping the cursor where it is  when quoting. Going to try Danny's way now.

I'll try that again!

Hello Ms Peters, it's Mothers' day this Sunday, check out our wonderful ideas on how to treat your mum with a meal to remember.  

 

I have just blasted Tesco....my mother died 20 years ago so perhaps they should try targetted marketing instead of just blasting away.... I told them I found it offensive, insensitive at this special time and downright inconsiderate....

Would this email encourage you to shop at Tesco? 

What do you think!!aarghaargh

ELSA: I got so pissed off with emails from Tesco that I deregistered and after a few days the emails dried up, they just sent far too many.

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...

Grrrrr ...today is my home invoicing and sort out the bills day ...once again the bills are far more than our income !!

Out of curiosity i filled in one of those on line benefits advice forms , very nice!!!

Apparently we should split up and  be "entitled" to nearly £1500 a month in various benefits. we would both get all our rent and council tax paid plus tax credits!!

This has got my goat to the point of where i could sit and cry , why does our wonderful society decide that you should be penalised for being a 2 adult with children family.

I think i should change my ID to Disgusted of Lincolnshire

It is dreadful.....it's no wonder lots of people have no incentive to get off of benefits and go out to work.  I'm not decrying those who have a genuine need to be on benefits, but I think we probably all know others who are bone idle lazy scroungers who can't be a**ed to get a job because they get so much in benefits they (and their kids) can have all the latest gadgets. steam

I think I'd prefer to pass on this one¦..I don't think I could do it without the pc going into melt down¦..but, once more, they are breading bone idle lazy scrounging kids who can't be a**ed to get a job because their parents taught them how to use or abuse the system¦¦¦arrrrggggghhhhh¦why did they get it so right and I got it so wrong¦.eeekeeek.  Obviously my parent's work ethic rubbed off and mine has onto my children....sucksaargh

I am keeping stum on this. Elsa's comments are left wing compared to what I think and feel. I blame my parents entirely, how dare they lead hard working honest lives and then pass some of that on to me !!

Rant! a senior moment! or two!

Yesterday I came down the stairs in my new green wellingstons, himself said ' are those your wellingtons' of course they are I replied! but they are a bit big! ( on closer inspection i found out they were infact himselfs!)

Today I was moaning about the power steam iron not steaming, after I put calgon in it and tried it again still not much improvement, until himself came in and noted ' it would help if you had the steam pressure on high! ( I had it on mimimum!)

Himself calls it early onset ! goodhumourdly!

MMM time to chill!!toffeeapple

Joanne, maybe its just aswell! what we dont remember we cant worry about!!

 

PS, saw a fascinating documentary on Russia Today all about Lartvia 20 yrs since communism, it was presented as  if it was still a divided country Latvians/Russian, I tend to take whatever the media says with a bucket of salt, anyway Riga looks very pretty, the countryside is similar to Bulgaria.

Just thought Id pass on the information.  Is it warm there yet, were still a little chilly, Spring is late!!!smile
