    Free Hovis bread on COS

    Looks like it's £1 everywhere except morries where it's £1.06 and S £1.05

    That may explain it.

    I had free Hovis on my Q clicksnappy - never appeared on any of our COS or other Qs
    I uploaded the receipt and it was rejected, just said it could not be processed so I uploaded again, same evening and then yesterday I got the same email, could not be processed.
    I've sent it to them again via the email address with 2 more photos and both of the ID numbers - its a short one sided receipt so I don't know what the problem is
    I had a bad feeling about this receipt although there was nothing wrong with it
    Unless its because the price is showing as wrong ...

    This morning the little one is still showing above the free Hovis ...

    Yes.

    I went yesterday afternoon.
    1/2 HR to go through the paperwork and sign the consent forms.It took longer because my sister said Sally wanted to know the ins and outs of everything.
    It took aprox 3 hrs for steroids and 2 lot's of chemo to go down.About 2ltrs.I had to go for a wee 3 times.Not surprising being I had been on a restricted fluid intake..In am at my sister's house at the moment.Will go home later.9 lot's of tablet's this morning to take.The chemo ones look nearly as big as bullets.
    Appointment on Monday to see a dietitian and benefit advisor.I have lost over a stone already.Juust as well I was carrying a bit of fat.
    I may be able to claim attendance allowance under the special rule.I have my chemo schedule. I have To goevery 3 weeks.

    Thanks for asking.

    As if the chemo was not enough to contend with - then there is a mound of officialdom and paperwork
    mounds of tablets to work through in the right order and quantity everyday and to make sure you have enough of everything
    and yet more appointments on Monday to overshadow the weekend ..
    Mind you the loss of a stone is quite a good thing - if the weight has come off the right places

    They all wear knickers in Scotland apart from when they wear their kilts I suppose.

    Just to clarify things, my knickers are a lovely pink with ribbons, other guys do stare when I'm at the toilet, I am sure they are jealous

    Sorry you didn't get your results yesterday.. Easy for me to say I know but try not to dwell on the unknown, it wont affect the outcome.

    So pleased to hear that things went well Sal

    I used to have mine on a Thursday, but didn't feel the effects until Saturday.
    Hoping that any side effects you may have are minimal
