    Very non mse day today. Like I said the other day, having to get oh and his oxygen tanks, from fen st to belgrave square and back and was asking advise on Uber. Well, got to fen st and couldn't get the Uber app to work, so had to take a black cab. £24 there and £33 back. Don't know why more expensive coming back. Most expensive tour of London Ive every had

    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.

    But you got the passport sorted out? At least its a job you dont need to do again for a long time
    Originally posted by mhoc
    Yes, was most impressed with the Malaysian Embassy. Normally they are not very customer friendly. But as soon as we walked in and they could see oh had his oxygen on and was struggling, they whisked us through to the photo and thumb print bit and he got his passport all done and dusted within half hour.Normally you have to wait and then come back after 3pm to get the passport. Plus his one is only £20 for over age 60s, but a UK one would have been £80, so that sets off the taxi fare a bit lol.
    .
    Mind you, I did get my son to phone them up to ask them about disability access etc. They were not very helpful to him on the phone but I'm wondering if his phone call did prompt them to get things done quicker than normal. They did seem to be expecting us even though they didn't know what day we were arriving, as you cant make appointments.

    Expensive tour of London was quiet nice too really

    APG site really weird as it has just let me check a receipt from 28th August that I found in a trolley today. Gave 84p so not complaining I only checked it as I thought it was 28th September.
    Giving the same message as others for another two reciepts.

    Supper planned around using the oven but have just realised that not a lot will cook in half an hour at 100 degrees Celsius! I put my Christmas cake in 2 hours ago and it needs another two to three.
    Time for a rethink.
    Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.
