    I hope it all goes well for you, it will feel like you are in suspended animation while you are awaiting a new date.

    Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later - its bad enough being confined to quarters in January but if they leave it until spring starts it will be so much tougher.
    I cant even imagine being in hospital an entire week - I would be stir crazy by day 3.
    6 weeks on very light duties - well things at home will rattle along, not as you like it and not in the way you are used to having things done but you will find the end of the world does not happen.

    When s-I-ls mum was in hospital for about 3 months, her OH and the 2 boys they had never done a single thing for themselves, never cooked a meal, never even cleared a table after dinner - in the circumstance they all had to buckle down, grow up and get stuff done, feed themselves and keep the household going.
    Similarly when my mum broke her arm my dad had to learn to cook for the first time in his life and that was actually a very good thing as he coped fine when he was on his own later.

    I think the main thing is to look after yourself and not worry too much about everyone else - they will have to find work arounds for the everyday problems

    I'll coin my usual phrase....it'll be fine and I'll be in Preston hospital so I'm expecting the next nw meet up to be in my room

    Free 2 months NowTV Cinema - new or existing customers who have not had a code through the mobile game Snatch.

    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/2-month-free-trial-of-sky-cinema-pass-now-tv-new-existing-customers-via-snatch-2874774

    Download the game/sign up, play the game and grab the first parcel, it opens to reveal a code, follow link to NowTV and claim the 2 month trial.

    I suppose if it has a code you could potentislly get the 14 day free trial first if you were a new customer, as you would then be an existing customer . Go through Q for NowTV for potentially 12 cashback ...

    I recommended this game a while ago and put details on the referral board, as if referred it gives you free virtual coins to start with.

    I have had various NowTV passes and other voucher through the game - there are cash and other prizes too.

    This is probably going a little too far ... ( though it had crossed my mind )? You may as well buy 10p sweets etc (or not if T or San works for free).

    Missed it, I see Anon has quoted so I will have a look. I am thinking of getting into this industrially with o2 pixi 4s used to register cards and the CEX'd I reckon I could do up to 10 cards a day which is an awful lot of 10p haribos as the cash machine approach seems too dodgy and I haven't figured the T/S no purchase work around.

    I have a card waiting to be validated (bank insisted on sending me Tel banking number so they could ID me).. so I have the phone I bought from Argoos sat with an un-validated AP account on it.

    Thinking, should I validate or not.

    The atm thing is going to be near impossible - only one machine near me then having to go to town centre every day, then there's always bank trouts hanging about, too stressy, and unable to go at night time.

    Tesco, I haven't even looked into that there's no T here and would have to travel out of town.

    Haribo - seems like dead money to me, I'd rather buy things we'll use.

    So 20 per day would be pretty impossible.

    Looks like it's not just me who has thought about a card reader.

    Morning Elite

    Was the lip balm and butter tested, I don't think I've seen anything about it since Izzey posted but might have missed something. Will check lunchtime if it hasn't. TIA

    I'm currently struggling massively with early pregnancy hormones. Today is the second day I've had to shut myself in the loos at work because I can't stop crying over the most smallest thing ever. I was not like this with my first at all. My stomach has ballooned too. How am I going to keep this secret for another few weeks?!

    Good luck.

    It might be sensible to have a plan in place in case anyone realises and blabs - I know if I know a female I can spot that they are pregnant pretty early, I knew my SiL was pregnant before she did, I just hope there is no-one like that at your work!
