I've had a busy but lovely couple of days :)
Ali & I had a craft day on Monday & true to form we were shouting at each other within about 5 minutes of her arrival, Ali's fault of course lol. The kids love our entertaining craft days, Gareth says he wants to film us & put us on You Tube as we are hilarious, naughy boy lol.
I popped out to the shop earlier and I was just about to pay for my grocery's when my mobile rang so I stepped out of the queue to answer it & it was an unknown number & I couldn't understand the lady's broken English very well so I apologised that I couldn't understand her & hung up thinking she was trying to sell me something. The phone then kept ringing so I hung it up at least 6 times & it rang again as I was leaving the shop and I answered shouting "what do you want"? & this time a man who I could understand shouted back "Please don't hang up, we are calling you from Prudential & just need to let you know we underpaid your bond by £700 & it's now in your bank account"! Oooh lovely but oh dear, note to self, be polite when answering the phone, just in case it's someone being nice lol.
Before I get onto my DT project I have a question to ask!
Has anyone paid for goods by an Instant Bank Transfer (IBAN), if so did your bank charge you?
I'm asking because I did recently & it cost a whopping £15 for the pleasure of making the payment to a store in The Netherlands as they did not have PayPal, but I understand not all banks have these charges so I am curious & told the lovely lady who owns the store I would ask others if they had also been charged for making an IBAN payment!
Waffle over, now it's down to business :)

Before I go I have a couple of piccy's to share which were taken yesterday. Jodie was babysitting our little Ollie (great nephew) & she brought him over to see us & I must say that gorgeous boy broke my heart by dumping me, & on Valentine's Day too sob, sob, lol. Hub's had a day off work so I didn't get a look in, he even fed hub's his soggy Wotsits, mmmmmm nice lol.
He was fascinated by Brad the goldfish & he sounded soooooo cute saying "fisssss" before the tired little man once again made a bee line for big old softie Uncle Ian for a cuddle aww, & I'm only allowing Ollie to come round when hub's is at work from now on lol
Thanks for stopping by, I think I might just have to do a spot of shopping for some candy now :)
