    Well my big news for today is that I am now officially a 'pensioner' in the eyes of the state!
    It's only 4 years and 8 months after when I expected when I signed up!!!

    I have been to apply for my 'older person's bus pass' which will be great for free trips to the toon. It's a b@gger about Waities stopping the my picks as the express bus drops off and picks up just beside their store and I had such plans.

    Also going to have to take my cup to get the free coffee it seems, but never mind I won't have to try and negotiate the one way system or pay for parking!

    For the north eastern coven, 'Fiver Fest' in Durham this weekend - lots of special deals available from independent retailers see
    http://www.totallylocallydurham.co.uk/totally-locally-fiver-fest-offers-friday-6th-to-saturday-7th-july-2018/ for more details.

    Found this in the Durham Times as in Asda there was a promotion, if you bought the paper (60p) you were given a pouch Cake Angels frosting free.

    Hope you find something soon x

    hi, zippy is covering up a lot of real pain. relied on a few long term real mates tonight. no one on here. on here can see real life concerns. i want to say ive loved mse but it has ruined my marriage, as i did not see it coming. i love you all but please listen to your partners objections when your on here. times have changed but you used to have to see our thread every few hrs.
    i will say i was very connected to the suicide reported a few days back, to my own situation. i have progressed from then but i am really very down.
    as usual for me please dont quote, i just needed my sort of Friends to know.

    now in zippy style, you wernt expecting that.

    Bus passes - around here its tied to the state pension age so I regard both as mythical beasts seen in the very far distance ...

    OK we do have train passes but sometimes a station is miles from where you need to be or a bus will collect and drop off from right where you want to go to and sometimes there is no train station at all. Or sometimes you might want to go via bus but then cone back on the train ...

    By the time I get my bus pass OH will be retired from work anyway but he wont get his SAP or bus pass until later than me. So I will say I want to use the bus pass to go to x - OH will say why use the bus when we can both go in the car .... Not realising that what I am saying is that I want to go on the bus on my own, no worry about risking life and limb, no parking worries or finding 60p or 70p, no worries about OH getting bored whilst I do a complicated comparison shop just me!

    and then by the time we both have bus passes there wont be a bus service anyway ...

    Zippy (((x)))

    Can I share a little bit of good news? A lovely young friend has been undergoing aggressive chemo and radiotherapy for the last year or so. Yesterday he was told he is finally in remission. His immediate response was to invite everyone to a f*ck cancer party
