    Nearly forgot to mention.....

    Northumbrian Water......and I'm sure other water companies are offering the same....are giving up to 50% discount on water bills for low income families

    https://www.nwl.co.uk/your-home/your-account/SupportPLUS.aspx

    Please get the word out if you know families who are struggling.

    I did an application last week for a family and it's so easy even DM could do it

    Having just spent the last year living off fresh air, the elite have keep me and my other half well fed and out of debt which I am truly thankfnul for, wombles are great if you can find them, whoopsies are better, fresh fruit/veg/meat at reduced price, each store is different so it takes a bit of time and planning plus you become an inventive cook, try and build up a store cupboard of items that do not go out of date quick like dried pasta/noodles, herbs and spices, freeze leftovers for another day, try to cook food that you can make two or three meals out of, oh and try to only cook every other day this will keep the gas and electric bills down, my gas and electric sky rocketed with me being at home all day, this may sound bad but go and visit friends and relatives or join a club anything that will get you out of the house plus the bonus of free tea or coffee and sometimes cake and biscuits this did not work for me as most of my friends worked during the day
    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

    Woohoo, I have finally managed to get my tomato seeds in. I didnt have any yellow tom seeds in the house though, and they are a fav of a friend. Never mind, they will have to do without

    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

    as I say on every post - if all else fails - read the instructions
    Originally posted by Snap-ant
    I have those Omeprazole Snap, they help me no end. Apart from while I was taking the last 3 weeks of antibiotics, I was told to stop them. Urghhhhh. Upset stomachs, reflux on top of blurred vision from antibiotics, which Ive never had before. Hope you feel better soon xx

    DM. Thank you for all the work you put in to do the National this year. Thanks also to Chrisv, you made a good team, gave us some laughs along the way to raising money for charity xx

    just seen about this glitch, if working tomorrow it will go well with my loaded offer of an extra 20 points per shop.
