    Hello LMD! I didn't know you'd been on holiday, but I certainly hope you had a lovely time!
    Brilliant potting with your cash from Prolific and your! Thanks for the names of the apps.
    It's good to hear we're like-minded with YouGov (hopeless)!😡 I don't think I'd best take your kind offer of a a referral for Pinecone, too much going on at the moment with our youngest DGD, she herself has so much more fluid (has done most of the pregnancy) than when she had their 3yr old son. Her baby's heart and lungs keep filling with fluid! Each time they take it off it comes back within a week. It was taken off last week at Bristol and was back again on Tuesday!! 😯 Due date is 1st week in January but the consultant says she's sure they'll need to induce her 3 weeks before due to her needing an amniocethis! Our poor DGD is  naturally very worried, her Fiance and our DD & hubby but at least the consultant has now found out the baby doesn't have Down's Syndrome or Turner's Syndrome, but won't be sure about anything else until baby's birth. 
    Anyway, many thanks for the offer LMD. 😊
    We'll done on another £2!!

    Excellent potting Saver-upper, £8 is brilliant!! 😀

    Very well done Ant with your travel savings and coins!!  😀

    Afternoon Siju! 😊 What a joy it is to have sunshine instead of rain! Your DH's best day will be Saturday as Sunday is due to be wet. It never crossed my mind that your DH wasn't a sparky with all he's done in the past. It'll be lovely to have a couple of lights in the garden so you can see out, brilliant. 😀 
    Good for you with the £5er potted!!

    Enjoy the rest of Thursday folks, Friday too!

    Sue

    The end date for SPC is on the 24th October - but no later, please!

    Oh, @Hettyhound I am so sorry to hear about your loss. 

    @Sue-UU Sending best wishes and thoughts to your DGD. 

    I am one who is still going with YouGov. It’s certainly sporadic and takes a while to get to £50, but I am so close to £50 that I will definitely continue until I’ve achieved that. 

    Speaking of potting, I’ve been paid so a little excess was swept into my pot. 

    Have a good week everyone.

  • Hey all.

    Thanks for asking @Sue_UU and sorry for the delay in replying - haven't been on here much since the start of this challenge.

    DH is doing OK thanks, he had his follow-up scan last Monday (20th) and we go next Monday (4th) for the results of that.  He was back at work after a week following the treatment, and although he has said he doesn't feel spectacularly different/better, he's doing OK in the grand scheme of things.

    xx
