    It did though make me realise that my clicksnappy submissions from last week have not even tracked yet so I've emailed them with photos. and the ID numbers - they should at least have been tracking by now.
    I emailed the other one on Friday as I could not even get an ID number after 2 attempts, no reply yet
    My Quidco purchase for superdrug on Friday afternoon tracked within minites

    Has anyone managed to find the Real Handful snacks yet in sainsbobs and if so whereabouts? Probably in the same region as the free drinks I could never find

    Good afternoon Elite

    Emily being very good, she came through around 4am and I told her to get on the bed and she slept there the rest of the night. She is asking to go for a walk now but it is lashing down so she will have to wait or go in garden

    Thinking of Snap and her Sis for the scan today and for bubbs for diabetic nurse this afternoon

    Oh and rose, your insurers are certainly getting things done and keeping you fully in the loop, so that is an excellent recommendation to them

So glad you don't have the worry of chasing things up as you just don't need this. What about exOH, as he was moving back in to his own space with you soon and had given notice where he . Does this still fit in with the timescale of reapirs?
