    I think it's just once when loaded to card, don't know for sure.

    If you see a mag, can you let us know what the coupons are please?

    TIA.

    Afternoon Elite

    I had a good drive down to Portsmouth, left at 5am and got here 8.30, including one fuel stop and one food and loo stop. Chatted to my friend Kit for 20 m8ns and then went to lie on bed for couple of hours. On my way down I realised that I'd forgotten to put my meds box in case but no way was I going back for them. I carry spare paracetamol and codeine in my handbag so woukd be ok for them, and could pinch a few hayfever tablets off Kit, but no way could I do without my 'nutty pills as I get I'll within a few hours of missing taking them. Either sickly I'll or rock bottom depression. So I rang 111 for advise and was told local pharmacy could help. Luckily I carry my latest copy of repeat prescription in my coupon wallet, just in case so pharmacist was able to go online to see my GP BHS medication records and do me an out of hours prescription and provide 2nd with my necessary medication. Worth noting, and we'll worth carrying your repeat prescription form with you at all time as you never know



    I had an appointment for minor procedure under general anaesthetic, with overnight stay as alone in house, booked for 23rd January and was expecting a call. It came on Thursday but instead of postponing it, they said specialist wouldn't be in that day and could I come in on Wednesday 10th January 😮 so going in this coming week 😕

    Thank you but I haven't time to look now but I have tried 2 different type ice grips and couldn't wear them I felt like I was bouncing and couldn't even walk . Will check them out when I get home see if I have tried these

    Let me know! These didn't bounce and I was quite shocked at how well they worked on sheet ice which is why I got some myself. I was still walking carefully though. I'm now trying to decide whether they should live in the house or in the car...

    I need to hand back my badge and make huge amends. Someone a few days ago asked about where to pick people up from Manchester airport. I was struggling with RL and couldn't remember enough detail to help, especially as I am dyslexic with numbers. But I did an airport run yesterday and worked hard at remembering. The best and cheapest way of picking someone up who is arriving at Terminal 1 or 3 is to ask them to go to Terminal 1 Departures A. I can't find information online about the difference between A and B, but the website drop off directions seem accurate for A:
    • Leave the M56 at Junction 5 and follow the signs for Terminal 1.
    • You will see the 'Hilton Hotel', followed quickly by the 'Clayton Hotel', on your left hand side.
    • Take the ramp to the left and enter the car park under the 'Drop Off' sign on the left hand side.
    The person waiting needs to stand on the pavement so that they are facing the cars coming up the ramp. You park in one of the bays and they leap into the car. I tend to time it so that the person being picked up is there before me, but if necessary, you can, with the help of your sat nav, drive off and then go back and try again. While it is usually very busy when I need to drop someone off, it has never been very busy when I pick up – I guess I have been lucky.

    In the multi-storey car park you can park for 30 mins for 4. I only did that when I was picking Mum up and couldn't trust her to find her way to the departures drop off area and that was ages ago.

    I don't know about Terminal 2.

    I'm sorry this wasn't in time for whoever needed the information but may help in the future.

    Factory reset it and sell to Cex for 21 cash

    I went back to this Sant atm today, and found the 'spot' (marked on photo).
    I tried lots of other atm's including Barclays, but there was nothing.

    Wish I could find one that didn't mean going to town - I need a secluded out of town atm lol



    My 1st day of second month today. Opened all envelopes at home and got a 5 & a 3 gwegg

    Well Im still faffing around with my new argoose android phone. I cant seem to get it to accept the three sim card I got. I've followed all the instructions and now done a factory reset and going to try again.
    Does the sim need to be working to get AP to work. I managed to get it onto the internet and downloaded AP and 1two. But dont know if I need sim to actually work to use AP and 1two. If I dont need sim working then not that bothered as plan to take it to cex when finished.

    Just had a very tearful call from my 34 years DS. One of his cats was run over this morning and killed. He doesnt know what to do about his other cat ( the dead cat's sister ) or how to tell his 2 year old daughter ( who loved the cat dearly - was always showing him her dolls etc ). Sad

    Yup. NFC is needed to pay, but the understanding is that you can set the account up on a non NFC phone then log in to said account on an NFC phone to collect envelopes.
