    Its been an awful few months feel we've been to hell and back..
    GS who was 17 last week...the one who caused all the trouble when we were away last year..deciding he would stay at mine (although he does live with us) and have a party ..
    Anyway his hip hurt, so after a month he went to the gp, after having cream+ exercises to do (which he didn't) he went back again, since then he has been back 2 or 3 times then went for x-ray just before xmas, 2 weeks later MRI scan, the results given on 14th feb- he has a tumour / sarcoma..then refered to Birmingham hospital today...
    Its been 4 weeks of anguish, tension and living in limbo...the stress for us all has been awful and GS has been in total denial-
    Today after another x-ray and CAT scan the consultant said its not cancer but some not right with the bone(cant remember what its called)
    so discharged from Birmingham and awaiting an appointment at the local hospital within 3 months..
    Hes not out of the woods but hes not terminal
    we all now feel absolutely drained, and have been functioning on adrenaline this last few weeks- now to get GS on track again

    SSM have you tried telling them you used apple/Android pay as both methods use an imaginary credit card number that bears no relation to yours. Will only work if they paid contactless I!!!8217;d imagine..

    Muller Rice or light 12 for 3.00 at Tesco until just after Easter so if we buy 11 of 1 it should glitch. Would that make them just under 1 for 12?

    Hilly, what a time you all have had. He sounds like he is getting good treatment - I would take the 3 months wait as a reflection of how urgent it is. I always think about when OH went for an appointment on a Friday morning, he was telephoned 2 hours later to say operation Monday morning.... we had not thought it was serious until he got the telephone call... and all better now x

I always think about when OH went for an appointment on a Friday morning, he was telephoned 2 hours later to say operation Monday morning.... we had not thought it was serious until he got the telephone call... and all better now x

    Exactly..i am positive but realistic- well I hope I am- but I think 30+ years with the nhs with palliative + elderly patients have made me aware of life..

    Yes, 3.78 for 16, just under 24p each - as you say, cheaper to just get 12 for a straight 22p each comparison
    Originally posted by Chrisv

    except
    if needed as fillers
    if you want to get rid of apgs
    asda is a lot nearer.

    i personally dont print apgs under 70p so even getting 24 would not save me anything. i know the apg itself is more, but only 60p saving over tesco
    does anyone know when series 3 of ashes to ashes is on drama

    let me know please.
