    I have a lot going on in RL at the moment so haven't been popping in for coffee as much as I would have liked..
    but I have been reading with bated breath DI's plight and pleased she was able to get home eventually to her 'medicine' that 2 little angels took her
    sarahnotsoskint -well done
    ssm- well done for taking a break from work, you are always tearing around so hopefully now you can enjoy your trip of a lifetime to the wedding and all the jollities that go with it, and the post wedding party back in the uk,.. im sure all your elite family will be waiting with anticipation for the invite ...we must get transport arranged we haven't had a jolly for a while now
    thanks for the wine glitch..even though im now being watched in my local A
    im back to babysitting duties in London...ds + family arrived home after another Asian adventure and another 24 hours extra in Singapore due to snow in the uk, but now everyones back to a normal routine....

    Just a quick thank you to all who advised about my son and the EON + and the housing association saga (even though hes not with the HA and is buying his property)
    He had several emails going back and forth and has accepted a 75% refund which he was happy with.
    He said if it hadn't been for the support from my elite family and the advise given he would not have had the confidence to question the dilemma and would have accepted the payment that had been taken form his account.
    So thank you Malc + others for your help

    latest VM Shop.

    Bought 10 different items. APG says "you don't have 8 different items".

    Guess they'll be going back tomorrow. Trouble is paid mostly with APG.

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Oh dear - if this was me I would have to take the hit, begrudgingly though ....

    Before xmas a nice sa warned dh+me we were using too many apgs and they had had a meeting about us and we would be spoken to about apgs and that you can only use 10 in 1 month...we refrained from using any in my local store for a while although we still shopped for the odd item in there.
    all had been fine til last week, we had a moc which was accepted with no problem but then we had a small wombled apg which wouldn't go thru..then the shop floor supervisor came over to the supervisor and said it couldn't be accepted..ok we said ..that's strange it wouldn't go thru....but the annoying thing is the supervisor would have accepted the apg, its when the one above him put her oar in that it was rejected..and she wasn't even on duty she was doing her shopping in civies !!!!!
    Yesterday we went in 3 bottles of wine, 8 fillers apg fine...except I felt we were being watched.
    Today we went in 3 bottles of wine+fillers larger apg fine but then dh put in a wombled apg 'that supervisor' who walked over to the till when we were about to pay questioned the wombled apg....she said.. I know what you are doing! we have cctv ...is this your receipt ? because it has been flagged up that you are using different credit cards...oh!! I say ..that is my daughters receipt, supervisor- well I will let it go thru this time but the person who bought and paid for the shopping is the one who has to redeem the apg...
    so we will keep a low profile again
