    Is it the start of The Cheltenham Festival today? I hope JTS makes it.

    Just remembered I have a £10 voucher sitting in Zeek for Starbucks and I'm passing that way today

    Morning.
    Can anyone advise how long before a refund (for venus razors) should be emailed to me ?
    I refused one sub (of four) on Sunday, and five subs (of five) on Monday. Last night I got an email advising of a £15 refund. So I'm a bit baffled.

    I think it depends on store, staff, mood () etc. I'm still waiting for one from Friday. Perhaps the refund staff don't work weekends.

    Good morning everyone.

    I will be lurking for a while, RL is a bit all over the place at the moment, I thought I had it bad with my eldest, but no he is an angel, compared to what the youngest is getting up to.

    If any big glitches appear, please shout or pm, I will try and pop on even just to read xx

    Good morning all..

    I too confess to have been MIA for a few days...this RL stuff seems to get in the way of most things that I enjoy...but hey ho.!

    I've had a brief skim back and know I've missed lots but if I can I wanted to add my penny worth in to saver sue who is clearly having the most challenging time.
    I am no expert when it comes to the care of an elderly relative other than having gone through the system a few years back with my mum.
    As many of you know she was the most obstructive self opinionated wonderful woman who ever walked the earth...and her view was that she would leave her house of 50 years by one means only....in a box.

    ......We tried to support those wishes but even my sister and I had to eventually admit defeat and she spent the last 11 months of her life in a very good and dare I say expensive nursing home....it took her 6 months to settle but I can honestly say that the final 5 months were the best .....and we all really embraced and enjoyed the time we had.

    I maintain it was expensive but good care and now with hindsight wish we had done it sooner,to allow her more time to transform back to the fun loving person she was many years before.Money so well spent.

    Sue please feel free to PM me if you ever need to off load to someone who has been there.... x

    Sarah....hoping things sort themselves out for the best....no advice other than do as I sometimes do and think what doesn't kill you makes you stronger xx

    In other news....there were 4 toiletries out and only one in last week....the in was a perfume tester vial....the outs a dove pampering creame bath from glitching days a couple of years ago, a sample sachet of body cream,and one of bath oil and a hair dye.

    frugal continues with little to report....and there have been several NSD's so I really am hoping that the credit card bill will notice the difference this month...

    ...oh and we bought a new property!
    seems as though the cheeky offer last week might not have been quite so cheeky as we thought....as they counter offered and we met them somewhere in the middle at £2k more than the original offer.

    This one is a doer upper....not sure what to make of it yet but it will grow on me and at least it will keep us busy over the next few months.

    But I must now stay away from Rightmove!!!!!!

    hugs to all those who would benefit and again wishing for a little bit of sunshine for us all this week.
