bottle of water - buy 'em at the store or use a refillable one?

I am adamantly anti-slipper--hate 'em.  I just wear snuggly thick socks around the house.  So neither, I guess.

The butcher next to the post office. They had salt brisket and silverside(?).  I bought 2kg which in retrospect was, um, excessive.  Wanna come over for dinner?

DIY. I love baking cookies.

Oh nice! Heheh thanks for the offer, I'm unfortunately busy tonight. I may have to try and find my way over to that the butcher though. I haven't had New England Boiled Dinner (hehe corned beef and cabagge in ages)

Birthday cake- DIY. That said, I love M&S's victoria sponge.
