    Just been looking at other life insurance companies offering £75...there are a few around. Well, I needed something to do until the apg machine is fixed
    Not quite as good or straightforward as the sunlife offer, as some are requiring 3 months d/d payments before issuing the giftcards,...some say you have to respond to an email to claim your gift... but still could work out quite lucrative...especially if each couple of the household apply. Just please make sure you read the T&C's

    the APG machine is taking a heck of a long time to fix
    I know it has been like this before but I don't remember it taking so long in the past. x

    It could be just a technical problem or they could be doing maintenance/upgrading ...

    It is probably best if we just sit tight and if necessary use Wimbledon to test.

    I put 2 codes in at lunchtime and had 2 wins!

    When I put 3 codes in the other night I had 0 wins.

    Are odds better in the day or is it my imagination?

    Oh yes please, I'd love to see your mums cards. I found a beautiful Iris fold of a dancer on Pinterest yesterday but there was no pattern provided.
    Tokyo was simply awesome. They have two Disney parks and we went to both. Imagine Orlando as being 100%. These are even better! Mickey speaks Japanese though Bet you can't wait.

    Yes can't wait but wedding down at Italian Villa near tiny shoes this weekend so off to haven at Poole Harbour tomorrow where I am meeting up with my kids and their families.

    Not sure I am enjoying all the regimented planning dd is doing for holiday but a 4 year old and alot to see we will only be doing short days. Discovery Cove booked but no universal as 12 nights isn't long enough to cover everything. Heatwave seems to have subsided a bit didn't fancy 38 degrees everyday.
    Actually looking forward to going to Michaels and Lane Bryant when grandma has some me time.

    Glad you enjoyed it as on our list. Mum went years go.

Think I had 3 letters begging me to reinstate but not one phonecall. Not got round to setting mum and step dad up yet, will do though as got my eye on some bedroom furniture

    HG if you saw a nice iris fold then what mum does is prints it out and makes own template on acetate.

    I am into paint pouring at the moment. Need some better weather so I can try some larger ones.
