    This is an !!!8220;over the garden fence!!!8221; type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It!!!8217;s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we!!!8217;re going to do today or what we!!!8217;ve achieved already. Everyone!!!8217;s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn!!!8217;t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don!!!8217;t post large pictures, or clip art !!!8211; links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don!!!8217;t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need one x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    DH up and gone to work stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work and I'll wake DS2 shortly, he's back to college today.

    Dinner last night was disjointed as I organised dinner for both boys as soon as I came in from work, they had jacket potatoes, breaded chicken portions and veg. DH decided in the afternoon he would come to the hospital last night, so we picked up a takeaway on the way back, which actually was enough for the boys to have some in a bowl also, it was enough for a small meal which was just right as it was getting late.

    I'm now on days' off so I'll be heading into town to visit the building society and bank, I'll also then visit the butchers and I'm thinking I'll pick up some beef/lamb and shove it in the slow cooker with some veg and gravy, this will then become tonight's dinner, I'll be making sure I get everything ready before I go to the hospital, so I can serve a decent meal tonight. I'm going to be visiting during the day when I can so I can then be at home in the evening.

    Work was all or nothing, 20 minutes before closing we have a queue to the door whilst the 3 hours before that we've not been very busy at all.

    Went to the hospital last night and although she was awake and was just finishing her dinner, she wasn't as with it as she had been the night before, although there was some 2 way conversation. They had difficulty with her sleeping in the afternoon then being unresponsive when they tried to wake her, also her sugar count was very high and they were extra vigilant checking it but it came down nicely eventually - so we just have to take it day by day I guess.

    Keep safe and well x

    I washed my bedding this morning...its very damp and dull so I'm going to go down to my mams and 'borrow' her tumble dryer. My dad saw an ad for a deal on Sky broadband and wants me to phone to see if he can get it. Not sure who was talking about saving older relatives mam and dads Scottish Power tariff ends at the end of the month and the price was to increase from 48 a month to 75. I rang but couldn't get it cheaper, so I have changed them to Eon for 49 a month fixed for 2 years. I always ring places for my dad, say he's got dementia and he just has to agree with the person on the other end when asked who he is.....though he does sometimes feel the need to tell them his army national service number too!
    Hope everyone has a good day

    Welcome to E.ON to start with

    I just wanted to add, that we have a system we can use to add another person to be able to discuss the account, this can now be done over the phone to make it simple. Called 'third party consent'

    The account holder would need to speak to us and give your name, date of birth and contact number.

    It means that you can discuss the account and make changes as well.

    I can see you've picked a fixed rate tariff (so unit rates are fixed) and got some good savings, you can also keep your eye on the Direct Debit on the online account using the Direct Debit manager tool, as this amount can change if usage changes and pop regular reads on to keep everything up to date.

    Sorry if you already know all of this, but may help others reading as well.

    I'm always here to help, as much as I can.
