    Good morning Elite

    So life has changed, never to be the same again. My baby at the age of 27 has fledged. My stash has depleated the freezer looks slimmer and the Bank of M&D took a pounding

    I can't remember a week like it, I'm sure my other three fledged much easier than this but there again the Bank of M&D took poundings then too .

    So our weekend was quiet during the early hours of Saturday and Sunday, no drunken feet stumbled up the stairs we slept right through if I remember rightly

    I know it's really difficult at first but think of the positives...... your shower will stay cleaner, your bills will fall and the place will be tidier. It used to amaze me, how when we came back after being out a while, everything was still as you left it Meals are easier to plan too and shopping less demanding. Make the most of it

    Quite funny, one positive that came out of DD moving out is that she suddenly found out how much sugar she and her fianc!e got through, I used to have to buy a bag a week, now I buy maybe two or three a year And DD has gone from having 5 (yes 5!!) spoons of sugar in her coffee to none, and her fianc!e now has sweeteners!!

    Ive been chatting to both Viking and Nectar. One says I need to chase the other......

    ........until tonight when someone on nectar FBI is going to take it up with Viking on my behalf. Nectar can't "see" my order and there's nowhere I can look on Viking to prove that the accounts are linked. They definitely are linked though as I've had points in the past when I've ordered from them.

    They have just asked for a screenshot of my order which I've provided.....amazingly I'd taken one. So we will see. I'll keep you informed

    I was in a rush and managed to correctly guess the Original Source flavours.
    I'm planning to do it again tomorrow on mr TM's account.
    Just had nearly £7 back from COS...took less than an hour to come through which means I'll hit my £20 payout

    With permission, I'm having a lie in tomorrow so won't be doing an early sharpie check. I'm sure Hillbern's hubby or some other kind Elite will do the deed.
