Sounds a nightmare, FLY2. At least my guests respected the house rules - I warned them about Mme before they arrived (Mme doesn't put up with any nonsense from anyone - including me and I pay her salary!).

 

Anyway, they're on their way home now but they did make a request to come over again in the summer - and offered to pay, so they must have enjoyed themselves

We have had the new £5 and £10 notes for a while, think the £20 and £50 are being changed soon, there has been something on tv about who is going on them, not sure if the public has been asked to choose or not. To be quite honest most people seem to moan about them, but I understand they don’t disintegrate if put thru a washer not that I have tried it!

The new bank notes are probably ok in the washing machine but I think the tumble dryer might alter their appearance.  

I’ve noticed recently that £20 notes are always checked by the cashier in shops, apparently a lot of fake ones about.  Won’t be long before we have plastic £20s, they’re looking very tatty.

I'm finding notes all the time, but I'm always looking

 

I do that quite a bit...but in the last few months - without trying - I've been picking up a lot of £1 coins.

 

People seem to be throwing them away like confetti.

Found £5 at a Garden Centre recently, and it was neatly folded and slipped straight into my wallet. A friend of mine found one in a hotel car park recently after an overnight downpour and all it needed was a wipe with a tissue, and was in perfect condition to put straight into her purse. 

I've often had to iron tatty old paper ones I've found.

Cliff, the new £1 coins are still bright and shiny, and show up well even amongst leaves or in the road. I'm always very vigilant when walking past bus stops, phone boxes or at car park ticket machines. 

Right, where's my walking shoes. I'll have a quick stroll down the road before it's dark.

Ben I know what it feels like, early autumn I sat outside on the High Street had breakfast and a coffee I must have sat to long and seized up, when it came to go I struggled to get up. An old lady, well she was older than me, came and helped me up thanked her but I was wishing the ground would open up and hide me.

Nightmare on the roads this afternoon though Ben.  It took me 50 minutes to get from Mapperley Park to Bulwell, all because of Moor Road being closed due to burst water main.   Traffic crawled at a snail’s pace from the prison right along Hucknall Road into Bulwell.  

I don’t need too much persuasion to not go to Bulwell and really wish I hadn’t bothered today.

Should've popped in for a cuppa. I could make a bomb at times serving drinks from a wallpapering table ! 

No G & T's or Bacardi's though !

Yes you’d do well supplying refreshments.  SHE wouldn’t like it though, she’d hate you making small talk with strangers! So when are you going to Jane’s?!!

Will you be allowed to take a shower at her house, LOL.  Can’t believe your sister in law can be that terrible FLY :crazy:

Believe me, she is. Trouble is, the rest of the family only see things through rose tinted specs. Her house is fine, it's just her personal hygiene.

I actually take longer in the shower there, as I may have touched something she's touched. I cringe when playing cards !

FWIW. Today seems to have been a terrible day all round on UK roads.  Big crash on the M58 near us (Two fataliities) and all of the associated 'knock on' problems.  Just all added to the chaos we already have from  massive and lengthy works nearby at Windle, which iis causing people to divert through our village on roads not meant for such traffic.

 

Still.. we  have roofs over our heads, food in our cupboards etc.  These are mere inconveniences.
