I think I'm safe with mayo and coffee since there is no reason for me to eat anything involving mayo while having coffee.
Except for one or two things, coffee is for after.

I suppose as people names evolve, choices for animal names will too.
my Dad always went for ‘Bonzo’ as a cliche/joke dog name, even though we never had a dog with that name

I really appreciate your suggestion, and I would have had some follow up questions. I have read back through the thread and don’t think I have said that Ticketmaster gave me a refund. Can’t believe I got too distracted by Bristol to mention that!

I have a female dog, She's called "Ruby" because she's the colour of a chicken korma.

I've never disputed a credit card transaction so have no expertise, but can't see this working as there's no fault with the goods or service the vendor has supplied.

When my MIL gets up and goes to bed I put her eye drops in (her eyes, not mine).
Yesterday morning the little bottle was empty so I got the new one off the shelf to replace it.

Last night when it came to the bedtime drops I picked up the bottle and realised it was empty. How can that be, it was only just opened?

I looked at and realised straight way that the plastic ring that becomes detached from the cap when first opened was sitting on the bottle and I knew I had transferred it from the new one to the old one.

This told me I had thrown the new bottle in the bin and placed the empty one back on the shelf.
