The tax credit for uni tuition paid for the Little Lion.

Of course it will all go towards paying for next year's tuition, but still, not to be sneezed at.

All going great thanks. Scouse girl not fazed at all except by the giant food portions in Chicago restaurants. She's happy to try new things and the Little Lion is very solicitous. It's really very sweet. She and LL swap shooting/hub cap jokes.

A rare sirloin on a bed of crushed potato crisps with a seasoned red wine and cream sauce with a dash of Lea & Perrins (hopefully a common element in your BM?)
A couple of glasses of Crianza Rioja and Mackies ice cream with an expresso "sauce".
Rain and snow today, but better this evening...... summer's coming.

Yep, Wooster, celery salt, touch of sea salt, crunch of black pepper, hot sauce; more or less same as a Caesar except for tomato juice. I put the juice in a jar so it doesn't go tinny.

Ordered an adjustable king bed frame from Costco. I mistakenly thought it was white glove service. When it was delivered the delivery guys refused to take it up 2 flights of stairs and set it up. I therefore refused to accept delivery and they took it away.

Just got a call from Costco saying they will arrange to have it redelivered and set it up free of charge. They also apologised for the inconvenience, even though it was my fault.

Great customer service yet again from Costco.

My 85 year old mum made me smile today. She was quite indignant that a local aged care agency phoned her and offered her a place on a bus trip they were running. Apparently mum's "not ready to hang around with the old farts yet".
