    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

Loads of left overs so invited all my siblings round with their partners and we had a mini feast then went over the cemetery which is nearby to me to check on our parents grave. Made a nice sort of closure to everything, as most of them were back to work today.
    Still got DD here. She goes back to Ozzie land this Saturday Been great having her here though.

    Hope you doing ok

    ps relatives went to A's and got about £60 worth of stuff. Im like can I have the receipt and explained to them about APG. OH is like oh yeah sometimes she gets vouchers for £10+ I tried to explain that, that is target shops but they didnt seem to understand. Anyway, put their receipt numbers into the APG and it was only a voucher for 3p Embarassing or what

    Please can I ask if anyone else has had problems with TCB for the strawberries, squash and elmlea. Between DH and I we have have had 4 receipts rejected saying they failed to upload.

    I've resubmitted them all again and followed them up with an email

    Now wondering which one they will reject ...

    But at least the bank holiday bonus - must have been the Marks order just before the May bank holiday, that's gone to paid

    Good evening Elite

    Hope everyone well and have had a good Monday. High pollen count here and I forgot to take my antihistamine, oh well not the end of the world but feeling very breathless and wheezing

    All this sunshine is going to waste on me as I dodged from shady spot to another shady spot in the garden.

    The weekend turned into a surprise packed house but all good fun, full of chat and wine and beer

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and those feeling low in spirit. You're in my thoughts today xx


    Off for a catch-up from this morning, back later xx

    Evening all

    Very disappointing afternoon tea with DH's friends They ate very little I happily worked away for ages in the kitchen making small bite size stuff

    They even failed to each more than 2 triangle sandwiches Oh well had then to distribute to neighbour, DIL and her friend

    Had a lovely evening with her friend as we chatted about tax, vat , business strategy etc. She does not know it yet but I am planning on brining her risk assessments up to speed and this is so exciting I am sad or what ? Rhetorical question

    Glad Riley's op is over and he did not need it pinned

    So out of my 3 grandchildren who hoped to get into the village schools after their move there only Seren the 4 yr old has got in. The other two have been rejected by over subscription. They are going to appeal but that won't be till September. Don't know what they are going to do till then. Going back to the schools they left isn t an option.

    I answered you on the other thread. At the end of the day the Local authority has the responsibility of finding school places for all children living in it.

    There will be an argument to be had about school transport provision, but providing a place should be for the LA to sort out. Remember your grandchildren have just arrived in the area, the LA machine will have to get into gear, but it won't be instantaneous.

    Last time I had a Prime trial I went to my prime settings and set it not to renew after the free trial, can't recall precisely how but I did it within minutes of pressing try prime to get something a bit quicker. The annoying thing was that I didn't get it any quicker anyway

    You still have all the Prime facilities for the rest of the trial.

    I had Prime for all of 72 hours in April. I was signed up for it during an order without me actually realising till afterwards (it must have been an order made at a Prime price, I guess, but I hadn't taken much that much notice) so I cancelled Prime instantly and got a cancellation notice from them within 3 days.
