    After a further three mammograms plus an ultrasound this morning, the verdict was that I have a tiny (3mm) cyst. No further investigation required. Relief doesn't even begin to describe it. It's been a long two weeks but I'm so grateful that the NHS was able to identify and investigate something so tiny.
    Thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes xx

    Snap, I'm so sorry to hear this news.

    Quidco - 10p + PDE. I may be up to 1.50 now.

    I noticed that there is also a 2.50 bonus offer wys 2.50 today.

    There is also a 5 TCB one but its only for certain accounts - none of mine sadly. Possibly its dormant accounts and I've used mine recently for the 2.50 chocs.
    For Q I think I am just going to get a cheap bra with the spare sparks and Q (as I have no need of nipple tassels ) and tights with my sparks as I have a 20%

    Well that was easier than I thought. Wyevale had these huge cyclamen plants for 6 so after the fiver voucher these were 1 each in real money. They seem very tough and I have white pot plants to put them in - very happy with these

    Another email in from Wyevale garden centers with another 5 print off voucher - no minimum spend but not valid in the concessions.

    This time though the email has come to two different emails so quite legitimately OH can also choose something - the barcodes are exactly the same.
    So if you have more than one card print off the email coupon for everyone

    Last time we went there was virtually nothing in the under 10 price category. I think you could get an African violet plant or a piece of slate - I went for a 6 mug and paid 1.
    The chocolate section seemed to have versions of what Home Bargains sells periodically

    My card is missing so I just had to give my postcode and number at the till

    Just popping in on a sleepless night.


    Hoping you are all well & have cupboards full of Oven Baked crisps, tuna & Christmas loo rolls
    My very good friends tweets and Glyndwr are keeping me up to date with kindness & must not misses


    My life is all angst & woe as we are reaching the end of a heart breaking 18 months of trying to save That Sister
    Her cancer is too aggressive to be slain by chemotherapy.
    So the time wasted last year chasing alternative therapies didn't make any different.

    She even opted to have her tongue & voice box removed as the last option to save her life, we went for the results on Friday & it can't be done, it has spread to her muscle & bone so that is it. Finite,

    The cancer has won

    The next few months will tear my heart to pieces & I must do my very best to make them memorable for her.




    Parents are coming up for a complete family Christmas to remember

    weekend newspaper - Times or Telegraph we usually get
    latte worth 2.20 or suchlike
    2 magazine worth 4
    plus between 2 and 4 of shopping depending on the npaper - if its Saturday or Sunday

    I still struggle to find things for 2 - usually its a cashback item
