    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    If anyone is thinking of booking a few days away Cedar court hotels have their sale on - Huddesfield seems to have £29 rooms midweek in August, Harrogate is £59, quite reasonable.

    We have been to Huddersfield cedar court, odd position in the middle of a roundabout but it has a very nice swimming pool area and there is a Toby Carvery across the road for meals. Its in a very good central place - we stayed there when we went to see the Holmfirth vinery.

    The house we rented when we had the wedding had 3 loos, a bathroom on each floor, it was only for 4 days but even so I came to the conclusion that life is too short, especially for cleaning 3 bathrooms if you have men living in the house - if in years to come I ended up in a house with 3 loos I would have to get a cleaner in at least twice a week to cope with the loos
    Or get rid of the men using the bathrooms ...

    After 3 increasingly frustating phone calls to Asda I am still getting nowhere re my missing eVouchers. They say they will sort it out and then, after wasting ages explaining/being put on hold etc , I am told they will 'escalate' the problem to the correct department. They say they are having difficulty in contacting them and refuse to tell me the phone number so I can call them direct. I can see that they are going to delay things until after the middle of this week (the date when the vouchers should have expired). And they they will say they can do nothing.

    While I await a response from them I think I will email the Chief Execs office - his addy /name needs updating on the first page as I understand it is now sean.clarke@asda.co.uk.

    The more they wriggle the crosser I get !

    Its is soooo frustrating when the vouchers aren't returned. I had a C+C order round about mothers using some evouchers and also card, some items were oos and other things were not put in varying offers ie 3 for £10 making the offer not work so the sa said it was easier to cancel the order...after many emails I eventually received the e-vouchers back in my account, I think that took 3 months.
    At a similar time my DH had a refund to go back on his card but in the middle of collecting the order and then getting a refund his card was renewed and he stupidly changed his details on his account..last week after nearly 4 months he has finally had £17 of e-vouchers given instead of the money put on his card, which isn't what should have happened but at least we didn't loose the money completetly

    I thought I would start today with some clothes sorting and ebaying

    Firstly I had to get dressed, this is getting to be a ridulously long job now, much simpler in winter when its leggings, thick socks, long sleeved t shirts and baggy jumpers, all done in minutes before hypothermia sets in
    ... I started going through an under the bed box in search of a suitable top, instead found dresses suitable for ebay and masses of tops and skirts etc so long in the tooth and never likely to go back into fashion so Ive filled a charity bag already.

    Then I could not find a bra so I turned out the underwear drawers, these have already been sorted out once already.
    But in all honesty I am never going to be a 34 b or 34 c every again - what possessed me to hang onto too small bras, why torture yourself...
    So the new ones have gone into the charity bag and the rest are in a bag for cloth recycling and the drawer now is empty apart from a couple of sets (possibly also too small but new and might be OK for ebaying).
    Which left 2 bras that are correctly sized, one is missing somewhere in the house and one was washed yesterday and is drying - hopefully before the Sainsbobs visit this afternoon.
    This might also involve visiting the Sainsbobs Tu section in search of a bra that fits even though I hate buying anything full price ...

    Drat - this ultimo offer would have suited me perfectly. Sadly all they have left now is little dainty A cups
    It would have been perfect as well for TCB summer bonus offer on Thursday as well.
    And you can use paypal

    I've found 2 everyday bras which I've got in the basket anyway but the previous free delivery code is not working now. I have subscribed to their email list, hopefully if I just abandon the basket now they will send me a code
