    Dear H4lifax

    We have our Kids accounts with you for the higher rate on the regular saver. But in your wisdom this year all the statements come out in my name only, with no mention of the child's name anymore? What is the point of that? It is not my account, I am just a trustee! You have just created more work as I now have to find old statements to match up the account numbers. You really do make life more difficult - when you merged with Ll0yds you removed online access so we cannot regularly check the balance without traipsing into branch.

    This is not really what you expect from a major bank.

    Your sincerely

    Should probably mention the Clas Ohsen in Croydon is closing down with 50% off everything making some good prices, flames effect electric fire 27 quid , steel frame gazebo 50 quid. Problem is whilst it is great for work, getting stuff home involves a 15 min walk to the station and a 50 min train journey, can't quite see how this is compatible with the 30kg gazebo in the 1.50m box.

    They also have home automation kits for 20 quid. Now I like tech but I don't understand why I would want to be able to dim the lights or switch on a socket using my phone from the next room or the other side of the world. What am I missing?

    Now showing free Costalot drink AND at 2.95 . Another 25p off drink for using own mug, this applies to both hot AND cold drinks, so possible value 3.20.

    HI Michaels, can you please remind me which Halifax kids account had the interest change as DD might have quite a bit in this account and I need to change it to something better. Do you know where best to put it? She is 14 now and it is actually her not mine so want the best interest and can tie it up for a few years if necessary as she does not know about it and it is her house deposit fund as we have saved her family allowance for her since birth. Thanks

    Good morning all

    Permission to go AWOL for the week although I will drop by to browse

    We have two large suitcases and a bag of buckets and spades, plus food and towels for everyone and that's before we start on our own stuff

    A gliche in wine would be good as there is a Tesco nearby

    Di and all other members of the coven enjoy that meetup

    I met up with our very own BB last week twas lovely

    Take care and hugs to all my elite family

    Argos Testers I was supposed to be testing a bike. They keep chasing for my review and I keep telling them I haven't received it. It was supposedly dispatched on June 12th but has never arrived

    No McD thing here, I thought it looked revolting. I wouldn't even give it to the dog on the piece of string. Remember the summer when they had a game where we kept getting free smoothies? Now they were delicious.

    Good morning all, rather cloudy here.

    Was going to clear out the shed this morning, but they are saying possible thunderstorms as from about 11, much as I would like to guarantee rain by having the shed contents on the lawn I think I shall postpone the clear out.

My last item (daren't say the word now ) wasn't despatched for a while and I chased that and got a good response. I have the actual email address if you want it, although it is pretty much what you would expect it to be.
