Are you supposed to tip supermarket delivery drivers? I never know when you're expected to do it, so I usually just never do it. A few years ago when I had sofas delivered the guys who carried them into my house then sat down on the sofas catching their breath, and they seemed to be making a big deal over how tired they were from it, and I thought at the time they were probably hanging on for a tip (but I didn't give them one because I'd already had to pay to get them delivered).

Haha, sounds like they were milking it!

It depends - if you live in a place with easy access and they haven't had to make any exceptional efforts to get to your door and you've made light work of getting your shopping in ... then no

If it looks like they need a haircut then maybe a fiver - i got tipped a random twenty the other day

That delivery was absolutely insane It took so, so long to take everything out one by one and pile stuff up on the floor while the driver stood there lifting up the boxes. When it got too uncomfortable I said, "This must take ages now you can't use bags, huh?" and he said "Yes... yes, it certainly does." I don't get why they can't use paper bags like before

Aww! I might consider bringing a blanket next time

Its great most pubs allow dogs, as there are not many places you can take them. Although there are some pubs that don't allow them and are not very clear about it, and when you ask them they reply like you've just asked if you can have some free beer.
Most of the pubs are friendly though, and many i've been to have dog biscuit jars where you can help yourself!

Did my first row over 30mins ever this eve, an 8k and that was on top of doing a 6k this morning. I think I'll try for a 10k next.

The streatching seems to be helping with the left leg numbness and shifting my weight on to my right side now and then during the row seems to help.

10k done. Not sure what next, maybe work on HIIT.

On Friday I made appointments with several health-care professionals - dentist, optician etc. - to be kept over the next couple of months.
Otherwise the appointments are all filled up if I try to book nearer the time.

I just put my head above the parapet and volunteered to be Welfare Officer for my son's football team. Never done anything like that before (ie a voluntary role) - I reckon it should be a good challenge for me. I need to do more things outside my comfort zone

^ That's fantastic Working up the bravery to do something beyond what you're comfortable with is the only way any of us will improve.

Needed to get my basket to £50 for free delivery, got it to £50.05

Definitely didn't do that by adding something I didn't really want costing £7.49

I went to the Coastal West Sussex MIND service user conference today.
All the other guys from our service came together, because I live somewhat apart I arrived by myself and before them so had to go in to the conference alone and sit by myself for 10mins so I think I did well.

I admit I didn't participate in the activities (though that wasn't due to anxiety just lack of interest) but enjoyed the speakers one of which was Sophie Cook. I'd vaguely heard her story but not really taken any notice, if I'm honest, because I'm not transgender the subject is on the periphery for me but she was a fab speaker and her story did move me.

Was even funnier when at the end we had a raffle and the final prize was her book and the winning ticket went to ….. Sophie Cook

I completed a form required by the local Council, it took just a few minutes after looming large in my In Basket for a week or more.

^,^^ well done both. I hate form filling, that took real discipline Galatea!

I finished composing a string quartet movement (I know that might sound horribly pretentious to some but it’s normal to me). I feel very happy as I have been lazy and unmotivated to write music recently so it feels like an achievement.

^ thank you, Painting Box, and well done yourself

And today I delivered the form where it needed to go and signed it in the presence of the duly authorised official: finito, huzzah!
