    Hope things go reasonably well today bubbs.

    Personally I think people in New Orleans have the best idea for funerals!

    Me, I would prefer to be just buried somewhere quietly, no funeral, people can remember me alive and kicking. I don't think that is what will happen though. I know it sounds awful, but to me the body is just a shell, it is not who we are. The essence of us will always be around.

    The last time I actually paid any NI is 25 years ago.

    I worked a couple of part time jobs playschool/toddler group when the girls were young which were not enough for any contributions but I was getting HRP as I was getting child benefit then.

    I will get onto it and find out my details tomorrow, probably all covered in dust and cobwebs now.

    Good thought but I don't think that is the sort of job for me, I already got chucked off Ts home panels and I have enough trying to remember to do my Orchard stuff. I would be terrible at remember to do write ups etc. Think I need something a bit more structured/disciplined.

Pay is terrible but the perks are usually very good. Often an outlay to make then they reimburse you.

    Hi Emerald long time no see I have been to the station and got a Northern train timetable for where I would like to go ie. York and Liverpool,I also rang call centre for N/R slightly helpful.

    You and Nellie ok. ok here .

    Hi Ellie yes indeed. Nellie and I would like to go to York but will have to wait and see if she can work the route out as it's all to do with timings and of course using just Northern rail trains lol. I have every faith in her. I can't even see the route map as too small . Liverpool is easy for us / i to get to if you do make your way there.

    Yes I am the font of knowledge re York but its one of those places you need to keep coming back to as its impossible not to fall in love with it

    It has all of the chain restaurants but avoid Bella Italia but Groupon and Living social are a good place to look for more interesting eating places.

    Accommodation is horribly expensive but if you can think a long while ahead you can get cheaper Travelodge rooms/premier inn rooms mid week and winter but it really does not have a low season now. There are 2 of each in town plus several on the outskirts
    - avoid half terms, all of the summer holidays, December, Food festival weekends, Race weekends, freshers week and any weekend when any type of festival is on.

    Accor happy Mondays - if you get lucky you can get Mecure which is just outside York for £40 on a Friday night or Sunday night or Ibis for £25 a night - almost impossible to get a Saturday night. This is good for lst minite breaks as you can only book a week or 2 ahead.
    Hilton - when they have sales you can sometimes get Sunday nights for £80 or so but on the plus side its right opposite Cliffords tower

    If you are not fussy the White Horse at Bootham has rooms for £60 a night - no parking and no breakfast but clean, warm and very central, easy walk from the station and fine for an overnight stay.

    Bubbs, I'm glad the funeral is now over for you. x

    Well my confession today is £1.50 for a sandwich in MnS when I went to collect my trousers during my break!

    In one way I begrudge the waste.

    But I was hungry, was out by 8 and couldn't face breakfast beforehand, nor could I face making a packed lunch at 7-ish. Anyway, half of it made a late breakfast and the other half a late lunch. And I have done very well out of MnS this week and last!

    It's also my only food spend of today.

    A bit later on I will make a sandwich for tomorrow.

    I really miss the Up and Go, meant to get some at T and forgot as they are a good comp. Next time, maybe.
