Is Simon a cheapskate?

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Now I’m always up for a bargain but I think Simon’s taken it too far. He took his girlfriend out last night for her birthday and paid for it using one of Sun FM’s discount dining vouchers that he only paid £10 for!!!!!! His girlfriend spoils him rotten and Simon doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong. I understand that he’s taking her away for the weekend so he probably wanted to save a few pennies but he didn’t have to tell her he’d used a voucher to pay for the meal! A woman wants to be spoilt on her birthday so taking her out for a meal is a bonus, telling her you paid for it with a voucher just takes the shine off it. The majority of you on Facebook agreed that he didn't have to say anything to her about the voucher but then John Alderson posted "Good for you Simon" Tut Tut!!

Paul Hobrough from Physio & Therapy joined us in the studio this morning to give me extra advice for my Sunderland 10k training. He’s part of the physio team who’ll be helping out at the end of the race and he talked about warm ups and cool downs. He also discarded the myth that if you run constantly on pavement it damages your knees. Scientifically, nothings been proven so I should be ok. He wants to have a look at my trainers to see if I’m wearing the right ones...........apologies in advance for the smell!

It’s the Grand National tomorrow and we’ve been given £100 from Make That Bet to split between everyone on the breakfast show and try to win as much money as possible for the NSPCC Sunderland. I’ve gone for Shakalakaboomboom, just because that names brilliant, I’ve put it on each way so it has a chance of at least coming 4th. Simon’s more daring and decided to put his £25 on Teaforthree to win. It is all for charity so fingers crossed one of wins!
