    First Post First Anniversary Combo Breaker
    I am dreading it this year being on a smaller wage with increased costs and debts mounting as I just about survive and worry about xtras like vet fees , repairs needed to the car and the pet teens birthday on the last day of xmas........used pigback points to get a cd the teen wanted as an xmas pressie for her which is something, looking for a 2nd job is a nightmare as no holiday left as it was used up when step dad was taken ill so cannot get to interviews.
    I am responsible me, myself and I alone I am not the keeper others thoughts and words.

    I don't know if this will be helpful for anyone, but I use this company to send flowers for gifts. The cheapest is £8.50 including postage and they have a special bunch for Christmas at this price.


    There are lots of these companies. The cheapest bunch is the only one I've ever sent and they are always very nice.

    I've just opened the xmas tin - £37.31 - not as much as I'd hoped but still have stuff on ebay and echeque about to clear for £52 so it's not too bad. Off to building society tomorrow to transfer the rest of the budget and finish shopping. only a few pressies still to get so hopefully will come in under budget for once! I wish I'd discovered this site years ago!
