    Hope you all had a good Easter despite the weather.

    Noticed the Covent Garden Soup Vouchers have finished.

    Mum is back in Hospital, as she can't eat, drink or take any of her medication and seemed to be in and out of consciousness when the paramedic came yesterday.
    They have her on a drip which should help to rehydrate her, but don't yet know what the problem is.
    Hope they can find out and do something to help.
    I have her sister, my 90 year old aunt (lives 40 miles away and can no longer drive) crying on the phone to me and asking if she is going to be OK, but I don't have the answers.

    Could anyone let me know if they think that the Jacobs crinkles or mini chedders will work vs T if I shop now as the price has gone up in T or should I not risk it?

    Your poor aunt bless her, is she the only sibling she has? She must feel useless now she can't drive as her first thought would be to go to her bedside.

    You're all in my thoughts right now Sue xx

    Is it just me or have the prices on the mini chedders / crinkleys gone up to £1.79 at T, not the £1 we need for them to compare to?

    Postie been today and brought me my free samples of Rose Hydrating Skincare Ritual from So-Post.

    3 small sachets of 1 Hydrating Eye Gel Cream, 1 Deep Hydration Face Serum and 1 Deep Hydration Face Cream.

    Not put my totals in signature yet but these will be entered as 3, because there are 3

    I haven't been counting toiletries, it's only Face and body stuff, I haven't bought anything in that kind since we started the Grand Clearance . I'm including deodorant and makeup in totals as I seem to have amassed quite a pile 5 mascaras that I've come across so far. It's used daily generally, but I have doubts as to how long they'll stay usable sealed up. We shall see

    Can I ask for some people's ideas on how much a week excluding rent, would be reasonable for someone staying in Vancouver, Canada for couple of months.

    It's really difficult to judge when it's not actually a holiday. But while there will want to take advantage of nice things to do.

    Thankfully rent includes utilities etc, so that's one less concern.

    Hope you all had a Happy Easter.

    I was driving on the motorways for much of it. Easter Sunday M25 was a car park around 11am.

    But was good to see all the family at some point over the weekend...

    It does NOT extend the date of the credit note. So if you have a £50 credit note dated 1 Sept 2017 and you spend £1. You will get a 'fresh' credit note for £49 but it will be dated 1 Sept 2017.


    However if you are getting close to an expiry date you make a single purchase for the full amount and if the item isn't suitable and you need to return it....you get a new credit note with an expiry date 1 year from the date of the return

    I think I was more concerned that I would lose the value of the voucher if I could not spend it all in one go...It's good to know I can spend it in dribs and drabs until the year is up.

    Mum is back in Hospital, as she can't eat, drink or take any of her medication and seemed to be in and out of consciousness when the paramedic came yesterday.
    They have her on a drip which should help to rehydrate her, but don't yet know what the problem is.
