    I am also on the spend 2k in 3 months challenge - wish I'd done it before Christmas as it would have been easily sorted.

    MY OH does not know this is why I have the new Amex card otherwise he would be very keen to join in spending 2k in 3 months.

    It was very easy to get the card but I hadn't quite worked it out beforehand, the logistics of it.
    My normal everyday household spending will just about come to 1k over 3 months. The other 1K is going to be problematical.
    I tried to pay the coal bill the other day and they reared up in fright at the thought of a Amex payment. I did managed to pay for some hotel rooms with it - Premier inn take it now with no surcharge. There will be some extra petrol as well beyond normal usage if we have more weekends away.
    The next final balance for holidays I don't think is due until late March so that's too late unless I ring them and see if they will take some off the final balance (this was a company that surcharged so I don't know if they still do)
    Beyond that I am stuck. I had a look at United Utilities but they give a discount for direct debit.
    Pondering If I could overpay Scottish Power - I think I have used a credit card before to put the account back into credit.
    And then there is the council tax but I on principal I don't want to pay that in advance ...

    Just had a text from Blood donation service re my donation of January 25th and my blood has gone to Royal Preston Hospital - so it hasn't gone far, just up the M6.

    Last time it went to Aintree.

    I know this is pathetic but its reducing me to tears, the thought that some unknown stranger is so unwell or injured that they are in hospital having a blood donation ....

    being paranoid - I had to open a different browser to check if it was for real (doesn't the forum look different when you aren't signed in ) checked the thread - loads of you mentioning it so it wasn't just me
    Back to normal browser & off around the ruddy houses, couldn't remember password combination then tried the old one as new one but now has to be 8 characters

    Morning.

    Looks like the 3 for 10 Easter Eggs in Asda now, but not showing on Mysupermarket just yet.
    Most available from 12th February but some available now.

    Cadbury's Creme Eggs now 3 for 1 in Asda, same as Tossers.

    And Asda Valentine's Meal Dine in for two for 15, but it's not clear what is included in it.

    I know several of the elite give blood and I was thinking of you all 2 weeks ago when I needed 2 units. Was thinking it would be funny if the elite or dd got a text saying their blood was being used at Bangor. Seriously though it's hard b to express my gratitude to all that give blood to to say you are all life savers and angels is not an exaggeration as I would not be here without it. xxxx

    Morning (just) tweets and hope you enjoyed the . Why not have another now. I'm sure you deserve it.

    Poppy's very generous with her biscuits. We used to have a biscuit tin in the office but it seems to have disappeared. Probably something to do with the current dieting fad. Maybe Poppy will share her biscuits with us.

    Have a great weekend.
