    I understand your concerns regarding your mother. We were on holiday in Shetland this year when my OH's mother telephoned her in a complete state as she was feeling very ill. Fortunately a friend stepped in and took her to hospital but it took us a few days to reschedule flights. I imagine Shetland and the Hebrides are similar with their remoteness, which is why we both love them of course.

    Yes - mine said 3 - 5 working days I think. It's all set up anyway, just means if anything the date for the monthly payment will work slightly better for us if it's the beginning of a month.

    I don't know if first direct is like the halifax but I moved the DD date from the 20th to 1st a few years ago when I was late opening it.  But I couldn't move it into the previous month even though I had made no contribution in that month.
