    Well done on the successful pricking bubbs

    I know what you mean about the testing strips though, they are very expensive. Andy used to get his from eBay as he got the tester machine himself, but the doc does prescribe them now I think

    mhoc,

    I have painted a few kitchens in my time.

    I would strip the wood all the way back and treat as virgin wood. The easiest is to varnish or wax. The hardest is to get a smooth finish.(12 coats... next time I would pay a garage to spray paint them). A paint effect is dead easy to get a good finish.

    I missed that till SSM posted , do you have 4 accounts then?

    On another note has anyone used any online currency exchange companies, some of the rates seem to good to be true.

    Thanks TM but that's the bit already sorted, DD found accommodation through the Canadian Uni elective website and reserved back in February a house share with a quite professional. It's a reasonable weekly rent that includes utilities etc.

    I'm trying to work out how much she will need each week for other expenses while she is there.

    On another note has anyone used any online currency exchange companies, some of the rates seem to good to be true.
