    I'm A Positive, apparently my 91st pint recently donated went from Lincolnshire to Queens Hospital, Romford

All the blood tests, chemo etc cured my fear but when I enquired I'll never be able to donate I wish I had done it when I could. I had to come off the bone marrow list too.

    Good morning.

    Morning luvlies

    Just seen a post on FB that the Argos clearance store in Stanley (Co Durham) has 50% off all their bikes. It goes under the name of Clearance Bargains, there's other stores too in Corby, Northants and another in the West mids. Not sure they have the same offer.

    Did not know about this place, miles from me but might be handy for someone. Been looking at the pics on google, the place is huge and appears to sell everything.

    Thanks, I will do, I think I need to stop worrying about everyone else, I thought as the kids get older it would be less worry, but they have partners and kids and I worry over them as well. Sent ds2 to Anglesey to take a plate of dinner, some cake and chocolate for his oh as she decided not to come down after being out with coast guard. Did not like her being in an empty house with no tea.




    think I I am the least posh on here. I got asked to leave a shop yesterday, they did not like my wellies

    Good morning all

    Well its wet and miserable weather Shame as the sun made everyone seem happier well except DH He is struggling with me being at home He likes an afternoon nap in complete silence and apparently I disturb that by just being here Tough

    I am sadly still reliant on him for transport as my car repairs have not been completed OMG I feel like a caged animal

    I have a list of shops for today and tomorrow and hopefully a car for Monday

    Enjoy whatever you do

    Morning all, damp and dismal here today..but at least it's half term!
    Well that was a marathon of resetting passwords and emails but I'm back now. Hope they don't do that too often. I am determined to do a tidy up today and not slope off to the shops........some hope!

    Morning all - still raining here but you knew that already....

    I got the Shopimum freebie yesterday the Capsicana sauce so we are going to have a go with it tonight - chicken strips as on the pack suggestion plus rice - what else can we do with it - there are 3 of us tonight so I have to fill it out a bit ...

    (Even better if you get it from waitrose as its 1.99 and a good addition to your conditional spend shops. No mailing from waitrose here )

    I seem to remember you get an invite to a fancy dinner when you get to 100???

    I had time off for babies and I was anaemic once so I've only done 61

    What colour card are you on - the gold one runs up to 75 donations - not sure what it afterwards

    No I don't think they are less worry as they get older, its just the things that you worry about change. My older ones with being so far away I don't get to know about the minutia of their daily lives - I just get edited highlights. Instead I am still doing a head count when I first wake up - where everyone is on any one day - worst still now as I also have to think where s-I-l and GF are. And the imagination runs riot as to what might be happening in their lives ...

    This seems strange as there's a high chance I will need a blood transfusion it would be strange if I got uour blood. I'm A rhesus negative what group are you?
    Originally posted by diluvsdiscounts
    When you do get your next op date then the blood they give you will have been collected very shortly beforehand - maybe in the week or so before. And it wont have come far - probably Cheshire or Lancashire
    I think I would be desperate to know where it had come from if I had a transfusion - packs are all barcoded now so they can trace its movement every step of the way.

    I am group B rh positive - it looks like I am quite uncommon. https://www.blood.co.uk/why-give-blood/the-need-for-blood/group-b/
