Welcome to my new follower, Delia Ryder, I hope you enjoy reading.
Having now got the extra storage shelves and plastic lidded storage boxes, we're moving on with another phase of our Big Cunning Plan for OH's retirement, or BCP as it is now known.....well, by me anyway. OH is dyslexic and comes out with all sorts of letters....makes for some interesting and humorous combinations, I'm sure he just plucks an assortment of letters out of mid air! Bless him. Sorry, I went off at a bit of a tangent there, I have a habit of doing that.
Anyway, moving on.....we're starting to stock up on dry/tinned foods and toiletries. When I see things we normally buy on a good special offer, I now buy several at once (provided I've got the spare cash). I also thought it would be a good idea to buy one extra thing - a bottle of washing up liquid, jar of coffee, bag of sugar, that sort of thing - each week when we do the supermarket shop, that way we can build up stocks and hardly notice the cost. The idea behind this is that when OH eventually gives up work for good, probably in about 3 years, our shopping bill will be cut down quite a bit. Hopefully.
Now for the blogging question. I notice some of you (those with loads of followers) have your followers' avatars in lines across the top of your blog.....others have them at the side, like me. However, on mine, only 2 columns of blog followers (about 8 in total I think) show up, the rest you have to click on 'more' to see. Whereas most other bloggers who have them at the side have more showing, around 20+. Erm, how do you do that? Be gentle with me, answers in words of one syllable please, this blogging lark is all new to me and I'm a bit (a lot) of a dunce when it comes to techie stuff!
Oh, and is there a way of being notified when a new follower joins up? At the moment, it's only really by chance that I happen to notice, which seems a bit hit and miss, and very rude of me if I don't notice and therefore don't welcome a new follower by name. I think I had someone leave recently, although am not entirely sure - I thought that the number of followers had gone down one since the previous day....I have no idea though who stopped following. I wonder why they did....was it something I said? :-O
It's been very muggy here the past few days, plays merry hell with my hot flushes, feel like i'm in a sauna most of the time. God knows what I'd be like without the HRT! Oh, and we've got those horrible little thunderflies at the moment too....step outside the door and you get smothered in them, which makes me all itchy and they get everywhere, even inside my bra (wouldn't have thought there was room, being ample bosomed).
