    Good morning everyone.

    Morning Elite




    Thanks bubbs I know, I was trying to be secretive, but had to blab about my blubbing because it's just so wierd! I've got 3 weeks to wait for the scan and it seems like a huge wait, I expect everyone I know will know by then, but I'll try and keep it to myself




    Thanks TM

    Mystery large padded envelope delivered just now.

    Finally it is the AA road atlas from Mail Rewards and actually it is the 2018 version! So I am very pleased, especially as they refunded the 100 points because it was so delayed.

    I was only wondering the other day where the elite find the space to store all their bargains?!

    You all must have massive houses.

    Morning peeps.

    Anyone changing broadband suppliers do not use VODAFONE. Our switch has been a total nightmare and is still ongoing. Suppose to switch on 2nd January still without internet. They now say it will not happen until 16th Jan (maybe). See my posts on broadband forum.

Apparently I can't claim for lost until 15 working days, just spoke to Alcatel and they said call in another week if they still haven't received it and they will think about what to do.

    I feel sorry for whoever pilfered it as I used the box of a much newer phone to send back a pretty busted up Orange San Francisco that must be 8 year sold and worth less than a fiver.

    I now have two others to claim for. I looked in the T&C, there is no mention of the trade in phones needing to be unlocked but I thought I had seen mention of it on here?

    Sorry you're feeling unwell Have you been tested for food poisoning? My friend had the same symptoms come on suddenly for several weeks (which are similar to my ibs/food intolerance ones) and I thought she would be diagnosed with that but no, food poisoning was the cause.

    Morning everyone

    No tests for food poisoning as noticed after Sunday lunch, very small portion I wAs ok, gluten free Yorkshire pudding ? Beef, veggies and gluten free gravy. DS4s dgf is gluten intolerant so already on menu. After late tea, one cheese topped bap with chicken filling, stomachs bloated within 10 minutes and pain started. Toast for breakfast starts it up as does a few other things. If I read th3 labels Ill probably find that most of my purchases contain wheat

    Thank you for mentioning food poisoning though, as we did eat out a few weeks ago. No sickness involved. Im keeping a close eye on the situation now xx
