yes kylie, i must admit that it was you i had in mind. it is also true that i am a bit envious of a lifestyle that involves frequent dining out and afternoon shopping trips.

these things are all good, kylie. so are you, good. good and hard working too, kylie. but i think i understand what you are saying. it is not easy sometimes to accept compliments about oneself....

No,not really Vits. I only go into town when I need something like milk,bread and in this case the underwear. I tend to try and avoid shopping as I HATE it! Only do my food shop once a month too. As for dining out..Pfft I would much rather keep my money at home than spend it on eating out here. That kind of experience is a treat for us if we do do it.

Well,my friend was still a bit off colour so I helped her a bit with her house work and made her & her family some dinner for tonight. I like to help my mates out when I can.

I go to the supermarket every day. I also buy my groceries in bulk once a month but I prefer buying milk, bread and fresh fruit and veg daily.

Thank you V xxx

We normally only dine out about once a month but we have done well in selling one of our games so we have treated ourselves a bit lately with some outings and new things for the home etc

well, that is great news kylie--selling your game and indulging yourselves a bit with a nice little cushion. what sort of business are you in, kylie? what kind of games do you sell?

are you telling me don't rush to pack and move to australia with us just yet? okay, kylie, i can take a hint....

it sounds like you are a good and generous friend, sasroc. my post started out as a bit of lighthearted fun. but you are new, and i shouldn't have been messing around like that. my apologies, sasroc. i'm really quite harmless, nice even, when you get to know me. pay me no mind, and enjoy yourself reading through some of the dc threads--i just know you're gonna like it here....

one of my favorite places to dine out is right here in the dinner threads, and the member's food photo gallery.

I try to be Vits.

Oh no,no need to apologise at all,it takes a lot to offend me Vits and your post certainly didn't. I have yet to venture into the food gallery but I know if I do I wont want to leave.

Reading here while our risotto is merrily brewing away. I hope it turns out alright and delicious as well.
