    Sorry, back to the wine. Do we buy 3 of each bottles please? I saw that some people were buying 6. Was that for a reason? I'm thinking that keeping the APG down might be a good plan.

    Elaine, is it a terrible cheek to suggest that, if you have time, you add to your wonderful list what the APG would end up being please? Ignore that request please if it is too much to ask.

    I got that too and have completed it, but it did not ask me for Nectar card number, so just hoping it already knows from sending email to me. Have taken screenshot of it too, though I didn't see anyway it says 'WHEN' points will be added

    Thank you everyone I'm waiting now for anaesthetist and surgeon to come and see me. Consent form signed and as you've said hopefully third time lucky.

    I think it will be a long time until I'm drinking wine again but it won't go off will it.

    I found this about deactivated cards

    So a card is only valid for 999 days untopped up - nearly 3 years, most of our cards are newer than that.
    But you have to make a chargeable call every 6 months and I think this might be the problem.
    If you put your Simm in and ring the number to check your balance - does this count as its a free call? Possibly not.

    I've been getting OH to put my simm into my phone about once a month and then I do any updates as need be but I am not sure if this is enough to keep a simmm activated?

    To check your Pay As You Go balance:

    1.Press Hotkey 2 on your mobile phone.
    2.Key *#10# then press the call button.
    3.Dial 4444 for free from your mobile.

    Re vegan food (cant remember who posted, skimming back, mhoc?). The baking blocks of butter are generally vegan and I think so are some of the the elmlea creams? If youre buying quorn, check its the vegan type as some kinds have milk and other stuff in. Rice noodles, courgetti or rice instead of egg noddles and pasta. If youre baking then you may need some extra rising agent instead of eggs but a lot of the courgette and carrot cakes are vegan. Also almond baileys if they want a tipple and sub almond milk for regular milk. Lots of the stuff (except the baileys) is usually yellow stickers round me so Im sure youll have no problem getting it and you can always chuck a bit of precooked meat in stews, curries, pies etc after youve taken the vegan portion out (in case you also have fussy meat eaters). Be careful with premade sauces and things as often even stuff like bread can have milk or eggs or gelatine or even colours added. Eg redbull is not vegan, neither are polo mints (but sugar free is fine).

    Apologies if you knew all that already

    Morning peeps.
    Best wishes to Di for today's op.

    Hoping for a nsd today!
    Glad the snows gone here, hope it's the end of winter. My gardens taken a battering, I've lost my bird table which is beyond repair, most of my daffodils look like they've been trampled on but worse of all there's a crack in the panel of my upvc front door!

    Has everyone else had the Sky TV letter about the forthcoming price rise?

    I rang them today and we are actually out of contract for our sky TV boxed sets package (the sky fibre and line contract is due in May) We have 50% off now so by July we will be paying 38 a month

    Just wondering about a plan of attack - I have put a message up on the TV/Sky forum as there are bound to be experts over there.

    We have a standard HD set, no sports, films or kids TV, no multiroom - only watch sky one and some documentaries
