    I couldn't give blood - tester drop didn't sink 3 times she tried
    I've had to have blood taken & they will write to me with results.
    Fingers crossed it's just a lack of iron, will eat liver tomorrow

    Then I went for an eye test & they were trying to force bifocals on me I had enough problems when I bought them before

    Then my third bad luck is my friend who I was trying to track down before - died last night suddenly ♥

    I had to go to the docs - anemic even though I was eating really well and I couldnt give blood for 6 months

    I am so annoyed this afternoon . Iíve been trying to get in touch with Pockit.com. All I get is annoying music and nothing else. I ve wasted about £3 already in phone calls jus to listen to this flaming music. No one speaks.

    Apparently what I need doing can only be done by phone for the security of my account huh . If I canít get into it no one else certainly will be able too.

    I canít find a freephone number . At the rate Iím going there will be no money left in my account

    Yes a spreadsheet for everything - I even have a new one for Try Me Frees
    Excels are my attempt to try and enforce some sense of order and calm into the chaotic world
    But possibly not as accurate as I thought - I might need a rainy afternoon to check everything again.

    We have a limited supply of hairdressers around here and all hideously expensive. OH was doing the odd roots touch up about once a month until my former hairdresser just vanished into thin air ... long story. So now OH is my official hairdresser with the odd trip to get a good trim every few months ...

    i thought it best to do myself.

    i photoed receipt in car hoping for a quick cb from cos
    lost receipt
    photo's apparently not good enough.
    went back to tesco and asked for a reprint. only could do a copy on a4 paper. all details were there but i thought cos would reject. so i asked if they could refund and sell me them again.
    no problem. she scanned 2 flavours and done me a receipt with 12x and 8 x
    photoed for cos again
    got home and found the original receipt.
    submitted to cs
    think they both dont process after 6pm so hoping for £40 cb from an original £24 shop.
