    Mhoc, sorry to hear you are stressed with errant son. I take over the washing when mine return to the nest, it helps me control the mess. I have warned the girlfriend that DS2 isn't fully trained.

    Snap ant, sorry to hear the news. Hope the treatment leads to a full recovery.

    With relative at moment so brief catch up

    Me too Seren . I went out yesterday with DS3 and the dogs as I think I recall telling you all.

    Had a fabulous one to one time with ds, something we do now and again his work shift permitting. Anyway, we walked alone the prom and onto the shingle beach. DS telling me I shouldn't be walking in shingle as it's so uneven and hard going, get back on the prom no I didn't want to. I wanted to enjoy time with him and the dogs,

    I'm paying for it today as expected but as I'm getting back into my own regime, if I bed rest today I should be fine tomorrow

The lady already has two Rommies and is fostering another. Anyway we are finding out more details and will take it from there

    Well done at weight loss Bubbs - that's fantastic

    Lovely to see Ladyshopper reporting in and her life going so well

    Feel free to laugh, I do! If I didn't I'd get a bit miserable about it, as to be honest lying on a public toilet floor is gross. If I am going to be out for longer than 4 hours and know I need to use the loo, I now carry round a rucksack with a picnic blanket in it so I can lie on that. I think of it as like a giant changing mat for adults!

    Any day as far as I know, don't have much going on.

    Question about working taxcredit. My Mum has a pretty useless cleaner but Mum refuses to let us get rid of her. Anyway as sis is home getting better she gets funding to pay a cleaner. So we already pay this lady £10.00 per hour for 4 hours a week ( into her bank account) and sis has taken over paying this and given her an ectra hour a week whilst shes home. But she needs an invoice for her insurers and asked the cleaner to provide one. Firstly she said she couldnt as she would have to declare it ( it goes into her bank account so surely she declares it. ) She is self employed and told my sister she gets £50.00 per week working tax credit and couldnt manage without it. But then she said she works 30 hour a week and most of her clients pay her £12.50 per hour. Even if 20 of those hours were at £12.50 per hour and the rest at £10.00 per hour then that £323.00 per week gross. So how is he getting £50.00 working tax credit!

    Has anyone else's nectar offer for 250 points on a virgin booking updated to say 600 points?

    Originally posted by aau1
    I posted the above on the 8th of March. Nectar have just awarded us both 500 points for East Coast tickets booked on 8th March (not the 250/600 we were expecting)

    I'm wondering if this is them paying out the overlapping Mothers Day promo instead Who bloomin' knows

    What does everyone else have? (Log into nectar, view your statement and filter on "East Coast" to find the points quickly)

    I am officially at my highest points balance ever
