    My sister with the broken leg is actually driving my other sister and I slowly crazy. She should have actually stayed in Switzerland in the private clinic her insurers would have paid for another month. Her insurers will give her an allowance of £30.oo per day for help at home ( at mums ) but instead of using it for shopping cooking and personal care she is using it for cleaning mums house. The UN ( who she worked for and who the insurance is with ) are dragging their heels with agreeing the cover and so she is using Mums cleaner and another lady on a minimum call for cleaning only and my sis and I have to organise the shopping and some of the cooking. I actually need to concentrate on my house and my job and she cant see it. She would like me to have stayed there and not in the hotel so I could look after her and Mum.

Maybe you should take her to see the state of your house and tell her how you would love to have the option to stay somewhere being waited on! OK, I know it is not without cost, but even so

    Her insurance were picking up the cost at nearly £900.00 per day!! She says she came home for Mum!! She's not really interested in the state of my house and my other sis seems to be a bit jealous that my insurers will pay to repair my house as she has just spent over £70000 on updating hers. However I didnt flood my house and I cant move back till at least end of June which is not nice. I do pop in to my Mums a few times a week to do my washing and to eat a meal with them if it suits me. Forgot to call my insurers about extending my hotel room after Wednesday and there were only 3 rooms left for Saturday so I just provisionally booked 4 nights from Thursday which can be cancelled if my insurers extend the booking.

    You have to concentrate on yourself, you always get this trouble from your family, I guess you will never see eye to eye, try to let it all go over the top of your head and keep going forwards xx

    I am concentrating on myself and letting the family crap go over my head. If I offer to pop in with a loaf of bread even my DD tells me off. I popped in for 10 mins this evening to drop in a gammon from my fridge ( which I have managed to keep running from the temporary power supply ) and I will then go there for my t tommorow. Although they are giving me £10.00 a night for t I am trying not to spend too much. Had a lovely salad from Waitrose for my t. In my bed watching tv and waiting for Broadchurch then sleep.

    I am wondering if I buy
    amstrel
    old mould
    one another
    in the 3 for £5 offer from Morribobs - so the extra bottle will only cost £1 - I am wondering if this will work ...
    And
    i think its a new flavour so it all depends if I can find them
    Maybe I ought to try Mr Tosser first

    Very good timing as I am down to the last bottle of mould and its my fav
    Originally posted by mhoc
    It should do - it depends if they spot the offer when they process. If not then buying AvM etc brings the cost down a little further but with fillers it may not be worth the risk.

    I just bought straight M without the multi.
