    It must be Spring. I've made a start on washing the removable upholstery covers on the sofa and chairs. Sofa has 5 individual covers and chairs have 3 each. Simple enough to handwash them and spin in machine, the only restriction is radiator drying capacity as I don't/won't tumble dry them. So 11 items altogether at 2 or 3 a day means it will be completed by the weekend.

    Asda Wine bonus:

    Has any one tried the Asda Barolo to see if it price compares with other supermakets on an APG? Just been to our very large Asda and the Barolo shelf had been cleared out (as had the Heidsick champagne too, but we know about that one already).

    Just cancelled Talk Talk installation.

    Before this Virgin were charging us 43. New 12 month contract is 19 for nearly the same, step down from 100 meg to 50 meg, which is fine by us, considering we were happy to change to about 17 meg. Not entirely sure that that will happen anyway, they seem to be phasing out lower speeds, 50/50 as to whether they are simply paying lip service to downgrading the speed.

    I should say that when we rang them up to check the contract had finished, they offered us the same package without the downgrade for 36 a month.

    Pretty disgusting that we actually had to book another company to persuade them to give us a decent deal. And you have to ask how many people would have seen a nearly 20% discount and grabbed it without playing the game.

    Edit : What is the process for canx vs and moving back to an openreach line? Do you give vm notice by phone and then order from for example beetee quoting your landline number with vs to retain this? Thanks
    Originally posted by michaels
    Yes cancel with VM, put an order in with BeeTee including asking for your number to transfer (worth going through a cashback site, just in case you do end up moving ... or even if not, some have been known to pay out ).

    The other idea I read about on another forum was ordering a new VM set up in partners name, including number transfer. With cashback (and timed right with the offers) it would work out cheaper than the current package ... but would mean sacrificing my ntlworld email . Offers not currently brilliant but seem to come round every week or so. Best for BB/phone is 50MB, 29.99 plus 20 activation, 100 account credit if ordered through Youswitch.

    My BeeTee kit arrived today .

    Still no call . I need to change my BT install as it is due on Wednesday and you need to give 24 hours notice to change ... but now the date available is next week after my VM ends and VM would need to be live to transfer the number . Are they calling my bluff ...

    Just phoned VM to confirm when my services switch off ... no attempt to sell me anything, gave me the date and that was that .

    Fortunately that did highlight that I have a week longer than I thought I had, so have now moved BeeTee to allow a week longer to negotiate .
