Speaking of order mix ups I had ordered Shakespeares Richard III audio Cd performed by Kenneth Branagh and opened the envelope which had arrived yesterday only to find Rhonda Byrne The Secret.

Last order mix i had was for Peter Ackroyds History of England Part 1 . They sent Ben Aaronovitch Moon Over Soho instead. It was a signed lined and dated first and they let me keep it as well as resending my original order. Now i've the full set of Ben Aaronovitch books and find it funny that Peter Ackroyd is metioned in the bibliography. Even if they offer i don't think i want to keep this screw up :shock:

I had that, had to wear a splint for a bit, got much better. I tended to wear it at night so it didn't get in the way as trying to eat with a hand in a sprint was doing more for controlling my weight than anything else. :D

My hand sprints when I eat too (doesn't control my weight though) :(

Honestly took me ages to eat one of those little yoghurt pot thingies, I nearly gave up and was going to trying and pour it into my mouth instead, don't think work colleagues would have appreciated it. :lol:

Hubby has had an awful cold the last couple of days. He's going out of town tomorrow for a week, but not before infecting me. :roll:

Sorry to hear that Catch-Up. I'm also fighting off a cold.

Discovered cinnamon (yes, again!!) Altoids. Bloody lovely they are, and burn the throat. Give 'em a go, they may relieve the symptoms a bit.

Danny upstairs had one yesterday, and said he lost the feeling of soreness in the mouth ulcer he had!! :lol:
