Random act of kindness

I had to share this with someone as I was so touched by it - it restores your faith in humanity when something like this happens! We were doing a 'big' shop in Morrison's last night when a love lady with two little children joined the queue behind us. She kept looking at us and then at a bunch of papers in her hand. I didn't really take any notice and just thought she was a big odd.

She then produced a £5 off voucher and said - 'Do you want this - I've got a few spare'. We thanked her a lot and then she disappeared to another checkout. I can't believe how incredibly happy this made me all evening!

The Apprentice: Nick Vs Margaret - The Final!

We see precious little of the lovely two during the final two episodes so didn't think it would be fair to judge them. I am gutted, however, to hear that Margaret is leaving the show to pursue her PhD in ancient scrolls?! She will be a tough one to replace - how about Karen Brady? She is the queen of business but without Margaret's expressive eyebrows...

Anyway, down to business...

Episode 11 & 12
The trusty 2 are almost nowhere to be seem in the last 2 episodes (except for scoffing chocolates!). I don't feel I can pass judgement on this performance so the final winner is.....

The Apprentice: Nick vs Margaret - episode 10

I'm in the midst of my CIM exams this week and the laptop has been out of action so I'm a bit late on the Apprentice update! I didn't manage to hold out until Thursday night to find out who was fired (grrrr - Thank you very much - on their homepage!). I loved the shopping channel task last year and this years didn't disappoint! As much as I don't like Debra (I'll never forgive her for being rude to Nick!) she did do a cracking job of selling those ridiculous scarf-things!

Episode 10
Surallen didn't need his trusty aides this week as he watched it all for himself! However, for her appearance on 'Your Fired' the award goes to Margaret this week.
Winner - Margaret

Total: Nick 5: 4 Margaret

Can't wait for tonight - the interview episode is always great! Anyone remember the reverse pterodactyl??
