      I’ve just cracked open my first can of Carling, even Mrs Joe is watching. I can’t predict us losing, it’s not in my nature. Going for a 3-2 win for England with a goal for Foden. The way Spain play I think it’s going to be an open game.

        Unfortunately most of our TV is imported from England so the day of the semi final was wall-to-wall “its coming home” mixed with a dash of “they think it’s all over, it is now”. No matter which live broadcast, they managed to bring it up. It’s actually nauseating.

        Wait till we win something, you’ll have to lock yourself in a darkened room for a week. 😂

          We were burgled and my car stolen, they also took Mrs Joe’s spare key with the intention of stealing it the next night. We realised and rang RSA who immediately had the car lifted and replaced the locks.

            We have a Food Warehouse near us but I’ve not been in it yet. I’d imagine they’ll have them. @kezo I think you like spicy curries like me, the vindaloo is Indian takeaway level of hot, very spicy with lots of deep red curry sauce.

              I think Des said that with tongue firmly in cheek.

                The Enyaq is quite large but the seats are a bit small, I’m 6 foot 19 stone.

                  Saturday evening, I made the express trip to M and S for their £15 curry deal, stocks were still good despite it being 6.30 pm. The Beef madras was excellent, as was the Sag Aloo, my fellow diners were less impressed and all agreed that the ‘Takeaway’ range from Iceland offered a superior ‘bang for your buck’

                  Had the Iceland Vindaloo tonight, the sauce was very hot and plentiful just as I like it, probably the hottest supermarket curry you will find. The chicken was okay, not rubbery as you sometimes get in this type of ready meal. For the price, £2.50 I’m impressed.

                    I’m a bit late to the party but where does motability say they don’t need both sets of keys? I’ve just lost one of mine ugh

                    I don’t know where it’s actually in writing, but we lost our spare set and I rang Motability about getting a replacement and was told they don’t provide replacement keys but they also don’t require 2 sets when the car is handed back and it won’t affect good condition bonus. This was around 18 months ago.

                        REMEMBER if you wish to then unsubcribe from next yrs renewal you can do so straight away or anytime before end date

                        Or use a pre pay card such as Revolut where they can’t take money if it’s not there.

                          Brilliant! What a goal from Wakins, inspired substitutions from Southgate. It’s our year, it’s coming home!

                            So if I did get a prescription it would be a waste of time anyway as there is none available.

                                <p style=”text-align: left;”>It’s been over 7 months since I’ve been able to get any Victoza (Liraglutide) as idiots are buying it instead of Wegovy or Ozempic which is the more effective Semaglutide.

                                </p>

                                I don’t know which one the NHS prescribe, but I certainly won’t be buying it. My BP was  176/124 despite being on Losartan and Amlodipine.

                                  I like Park Dean as they have wheelchair accessible caravans at almost all their parks.

                                    Getting annoyed with this now. We ordered 85 Ecosuite early January, still no sign of it.

                                        Labour win the General Election, England win on penalties and qualify for the Euros semifinals, Lewis wins his first race since 2021 (the British GP)! Things Can Only Get Better 🎵 🎵 🎵!

                                          Brilliant race, I knew it was the correct decision to put Lewis on the soft tyre with 14 laps to go, track damp in places and moisture in the air got a couple more laps out of them.

                                            I’m watching it now, lap 30 they’re all on Inters.

                                              I watched it till lap 10 and then had to pick up a family member from hospital. I recorded the rest of the race and settled back into it around 4.30pm, just as I re-started my phone pinged and caught my eye, I looked down and it was the Guardian saying Lewis had won! Happy for Lewis, gutted I knew the result before the end.

                                                The receiver unit on mine is exactly the same as the one Kezo posted a link to. The camera is also very similar. Only difference is the solar panel. Even bird houses are becoming sustainable!

                                                    Many thanks Joejo do you watch on your tv or your phone ? May I ask how much you paid and how high you have the box from the ground ? My box would be for blue tits have many in the garden and installation no problem can hide cables behind tall bushes my tv would be just 6 feet away

                                                    Mike, the camera is on a wall near the conservatory. I watch it on a tv in the back room, it connects via single yellow RCA phono video cable. It’s about 6 feet high and has been in place 3 years without any occupants. I’ve recently put hanging baskets around it. The camera was a present but I think it was around £30.

                                                      I have a bird box camera with a cable. The problem you will have is power. A cable supplied camera is tiny about half the size of a matchbox.

                                                      To get enough power the battery will make the camera quite large. I’m sure they exist but I’d imagine they are expensive and don’t have a great battery life, days rather than weeks, this would mean disturbing the nest to change the battery which would scare the birds off.

                                                      My camera came with a 20m power lead which is very thin 5v cable, maybe 2/3mm in diameter. The camera is wireless with a little receiver at the tv end.
