    I will check the update forms when I get home as I can't view very well on my iPad and I'm at my parents house.

    Do you want to set a target?

    Hi and welcome to the back end of December,

    I have had a great Christmas with my nieces and nephew, still got presents to open as we had so many so we are opening more today,

    I have been woken up by the eldest neices bounding into my room shouting happy birthday at the top of her lungs nearly jumped out of my skin

    It's lovely to be greeted this way on your birthday not so much at 6am....

    Any upwards and onwards for another day of presents and all about me and not Jesus

    Welcome Ladymorticia,

    Your number is #11 please add this to your signature so I can see it. Yes you can add to your pot more then once a week, you can either then send me the update form as you do the transfer or keep a note and update me at the end of the month,

    Some send me one form others do it as they transfer so they don't forget I don't mind either way, as long as I get a update form as this thread can move quite quickly and I don't want to miss declarations

    Welcome and good luck .
