    I'm grumpy as Mr TS is watching something else and won't let me watch Junior Doctors tonight.

    DD has just text to say her friend that graduated last year is on it.

    I wonder how it is making her feel, not sure whether it's a good idea or not.

    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

    My was because they were showing £30 online.

    When do you want to buy this item? If you register the card you get a £5 voucher for your "birthday", I cannot recall if it covers everything but it is certainly useful anyway, and at least if you register the card you will get points on it.

    As for vouchers, how desperate are you? If you take out Sun Life over 50s insurance you get a £75 voucher after the first payment has been taken, which may take two months, and you can choose a M&S voucher or an Amazon voucher etc, I took out a policy a short while ago to get the Amazon voucher, will be cancelling as soon as I get the voucher.
