    Sorry you had a horrible time, Lou. x

    Could you message your bank and tell them what's happened, then maybe they would forego any charges knowing the refund was due.

    Bless isn't quite the word I was thinking of ! Anyway, car is in for repair- they reckon they can get get a bumper delivered by Monday and we can have the car back on Tuesday afternoon. So the trip to Heathrow will be OK. Luckily they had a courtesy car I could have. Cost is 750 or thereabouts - which is good news for DH as he thought it would be at least 1500.

    I have let him out of the doghouse.

    Yes, it really is.

    When you include things like Students Loan repayments, Auto Enrollment Pensions, Attachment of Earnings and other fines and Court orders, constant surveys from the Office for National Statistics, you actually can't do it yourself, and have to pay specialist companies so adding more overhead to businesses.

    Sometimes I wonder why I do it, rather than just get a job working for a big company.

    I read the other day that under the equaility act a staff member on mat leave is entitled to a proportion of any normal team bonus when she is off on compulsory leave. Well I never knew that before

    Poster who wanted to know about salary sacrifice You are prohibited from reducing your mat pay below the basic SMP amount same as you cant take salary sacrifices which take your earning below the NMW

    In fact, if it was me I would also message a complaint to the shop's head office.

    Press down on the text message and a little menu should appear. Select copy. Open a new message, press paste.

    Press down on part of the code and a selection will come up - then use the little dots hold down and extend the selection to cover the whole code, select copy then paste in the Am4zon code box.

    This is the general idea - it may be slightly different on different phones.

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Haven!!!8217;t said anything earlier but have some fantastic news to share. DS and his gf are expecting a baby in June. They didn!!!8217;t think she could have children so this has come as a complete surprise to them. So sweet, bless them. She!!!8217;s had a few scans now and all is fine, they!!!8217;re pretty sure it!!!8217;s a boy .

    They live in Spain so DH, DD2, DGD1 and I have booked flights to go out and see them next month .

    Don!!!8217;t want to tempt fate so not taking any baby bits out there yet but it hasn!!!8217;t stopped me buying them .

    Mothercare have a fab sale on, loads of stuff in the clearance just depends on what each store has to clear so going further afield tomorrow to have a nosey in a larger store.

    Yes you hold the phone next to the terminal and the till takes the payment - if you look at your phone it runs a short animation, an envelope appears and you then click on the button on screen to open the envelope to reveal if you won or not. You can have 10 goes per day, each go has to be at least one minute apart.

    Oh, you need a data/WiFi connection for it to open the envelope.

    Lost 20 of APG vouchers, they were showing expire 06/01 and I had planned on using them tonight to place an order. Now I'm not sure whether to ring and complain and risk flagging my account or just take the hit. What would the Elite do?
    Originally posted by jacand
    It depends on how you generated the vouchers - normal or glitchy shop? A number of Elite have had accounts suspended/closed so it may be best not to complain (then get revenge on another glitch ) .
