    Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. I decided to post it on my fb page whilst it was set up and I'm up to 187 already.
    I've just spoken to Dd and on a Sunday night the pub were she works have a quiz night and they do them for charity so she's asking her boss later if we can do one on the bank holiday weekend at the end of May. Usually the team wins what's in the pot but on a charity night he donates a voucher for a meal and the proceeds go to the chosen charity. They also do a raffle to raise extra money so I can see a few bottles of freixinet being donated. I wish I'd bought some of the boxed champagne now but hey ho.
    We also have another signed man utd shirt, this is our third and I'm so grateful to the friend who gets them for us so I need to think about what to do with that.

    Well considering I started this week awaiting inspiration as to what charity event I would do things seem to be storming ahead.

    Thank you again so much you have all been very, very generous, it means a lot xx

    That computer from Wish has apparently been shipped.

    No idea what will happen with import taxes etc, it is coming from China, not sure if they will go on cost or value? For all we know the value might be lower than the cost

    Good Morning


    Terrible tummy ache & reflux early this morning

    Drank a fizzy pop to be able to burp the reflux out

    Then cottoned onto why I was prescribed some other tablets with the Naproxen - Omeprazole, which I ignored So it all makes sense now
    feeling a lot better already after taking the first one

    A very kind friend & neighbour died yesterday

    I didn't know she was suddenly so ill as we were away Friday. Fourp had told me after the show that her Grandson had called round & told him she was very very poorly.
    I called round with a card when I got back yesterday & met her Family returning with the sad news.
    Devastating as she was well loved xxx

    Hoping her Grandson (who they raised) comes back to live with his Grandad to keep him company xx

    Hi everybody. I was wondering if I could ask a MASSIVE favour. I have become unemployed and hope this is only for temporary reasons. As I have time on my hands I am walking during the day to keep busy. I am trying to make my Jobseeker's Allowance go far and so have time to visit all the supermarkets really. Apart from J Sainsbury, they are all within 45 minutes walk. I have put Greenjinn, Checkoutsmart and Shopmium on my phone. Using these I am saving money but also mainly shopping at Tesco and using their brand match on goods cheaper elsewhere. I know the Asda one is 10% cheaper but it seems too complicated. Can you give me any more tips to get my 73 benefit stretching further?

    Thankyou, gracias, merci, danke, grazie......

    Check what you are entitled to are you on Income based JSA or contributions based JSA I did not know there was two different JSA I went to my dentist told them I was on JSA They said fill this form out and you get free dental How stupid was I, a few months later I got a bill and a fine from the NHS I was on contributions JSA and you do not get free anything You have to fill in a HC1 form to get free perscriptions and dental work , You can pick one of these forms up from your job centre when you sign on, do this before you need anything because you can not back date it
    Depending on your circumstances you only get JSA for 6 months after that nothing

    Good luck if you need any help or advice just pm me,

    Thank you for posting the info about the dental issue. I know there are two different types of JSA but did not realise that one gives you free NHS the other zilch, zero, nought. Something else I must bring myself back uptodate with and pass info on. Thank you xx

    Good afternoon Elite

    Is it time to get up yet? omg, Ive got a bad headache . Too much bbq and one too many glasses of fizz I fear . Or it could be the red wine, one glass left I hated seeing going to waste.

    Let the younger ones partying into the early hours and came home just before 10pm. Not sure I can face lunch, I know its cooking, I can smell it .

    Enjoy today or what left of it if youre going out.

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and those low in body and mind. Youre in my thoughts as always xx
