    In the darkest hours last night (1am) I found, after 2 days of searching, the perfect holiday house let in Tenby
    He is fearful of flying at the moment so UK it is

    So that has cheered Fourp up & distracted him from his symptoms - as he can't find any negatives

    (Sorry I had to crawl downstairs as we had a visitor in the middle of typing ) Just managed going upstairs backwards

    dont get me wrong... Im sure they are nice but it seems even in the hotel... english was not well spoken... had problems trying to find out when the buffet dinner was on and the Czech staff came out with all versions of CHINESE which I do not even speak and no ENGLISH....

    Daughter had to use Google Translate many times.. thank god for GOOGLE!!!
    :P

    Yes hotel staff should at least speak some basic English. Don't complain too much about your experience in Czech hotels. You could rely more on your Google Translator when you are trying to stay in some smaller hotels in Japan or China here.

    Dropped off a heavy bagful of books at T's for the charity bookshelf. No Princes fruit in mine, but brown parcel rollwrap was down to 63p, checked Lindt bunnies, still 1.50.

    Co-op for free Princes peaches, plus rtc Welsh bakery loaf 36p, till spit for 50p off fresh chicken products. Loads of Easter stuff on clearance shelf but prices still very high, even at 50% off.

    Also I've had my first Iceland mailing which says between 11th of April and 13th of May spend 10 instore, online or at the warehouse and use the bonuscard and then on 19th of May 5 will be loaded onto my bonus card to be spend by 3rd June.

    I suppose it will have to be chicken.

    Have to have a look at my visa offers now - very sometimes Iceland is on the list.

    Meant to mention yesterday, my birthday gift was still showing on my Sparks card, in spite of the fact I had used the voucher they sent me, so I grabbed a 6 box of chocs, handed it over to the SA and said i wasn't sure if the gift code had been used or not as my OH had had my card for a while, and it went through as free.
