    Good afternoon lovely peoples

    I'm afraid I've had bad news.
    It appears the chemotherapy hasn't worked, and my cancer has spread into my spine already.
    I'm devastated

    It'll be an interesting perspective.

    I shall have to wait - hopefully one day I'll get to board the Queen.





    Complete with new wardrobe, and megabucks to spend of course...

    Yes going on Cunard is very expensive, very few bargain fares now. In October 2012 we got a 7 day Christmas market cruise for December 2012 on Queen Victoria for just under £500 each - with a balcony - that's never going to happen again.

    What happens now, more appointments with consultants?

    Apps Update
    Targeting T v S with 11 items

    Manomasa 4 flavours T 1.99 v S 1.25 = 2.96 profit Worked APART from tomatillo Salso*
    Hovis bread T 1.35 S 1.30 = 5p profit Compared 1.00 t0 1.05 Pay 55p
    Coke zero 1.75L T 1.66 S £1.35 85p CB comparison 31p, cost £50p Worked
    Shopmymum
    2 x different Primula cheese offering BOGOF £1.45, currently £1 T & S (am I correct they will pay out £1.45??) = 2 for 55p WORKED ham & chive


    Sum up 8 different items, total cost if primula works and 2 fillers (10p sweets, 3 to be safe 30p) £1.66 PROFIT

    · The Manomosa just scans as snacks or tortilla snacks, so could probably miss out the Tomatillo and buy two of another and claim.

    So could be Tortilla profit £2.96
    Bread 5p loss
    Coke zero costs 50p
    Primula 55p

    So net £1.86 profit, less fillers.

    Haven’t tried cashback yet,

    Apologies, I'm getting better now I've been examined by a medical person, the pain was appalling
    Results are either Cellulitis, or an insect bite or a DVT...
    but definitely not Gout
    Take Ibuprofen - if pain gets worse to go back tomorrow..

    Sorry Emerald's Riley ♥ Hope you go home soon
