Re: What have you just bought?

A dinky little (14 cm) non-stick frying pan in Lidl this morning. Been looking for a small pan at a reasonable price (£3.99) for ages.

My OH alternated between takeaways and going to the supermarket for those 10 days.

Re: What have you just bought?

Not bought yet, but looking increasingly likely I may have to purchase a couple of fence posts and at least one fence panel

May even just buy some decent wood and try a DIY panel, has to be better than most cheap crap . .

Re: What have you just bought?

Tickets to Kennedy Space Centre - our flight doesn't leave until 22:15 that day, so this should pass the time nicely (and something off my bucket list).

We're staying in Titusville the night before, so only about 10 miles from there, then about an hour's drive to the Airport.

I went twice in '91 spent all day there.

Second time ont only was there a Shuttle on the pad but it had the cover on adjusting the cargo bay.

But a second one landed at the Cape, everyone was outside trying to see it.
