Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Please sir....

What a day I had today, nonstop all day, the whole day flew by and I managed to get a lot accomplished. First thing I called and set up travel insurance for Sophie and I, pretty good price and always strange how you can buy that hoping you never need to use it! I went next to the bank to get Sophie's money and change it to $$$, while in the queue I spotted a flier that proclaimed anyone with an Advantage Gold account can use travel insurance free, hmmm, must be a catch, that seems to handy, and FREE? Nothing is for free.
I have had this account fo 4 years, I pay a £12 fee every month and every month I tut and sigh about that fee, darn banks, robbers and thieves and ne're do wells. So, I called the freephone number when I got home ( because the website is hopeless!) and get this... " why yes, you travel insurance is covered and you know you have full breakdown recovery service too, don't you? Homestart, it's you that is covered by the way, whatever car you ae in, whether it is yours or not, we will send someone to fix the car at the roadside or tow you to a garage free of charge, also if you are at home and your car won't start, we'll send someone to see to that for you, no charge, it's all coevered in that £12 fee you pay each month, Oh know you have cell phone coverage too? Yes if you lose you phone etc, we will replace that for you. Mrs do know that when you travle, if you call that number I gave you, you will get a 10% discount on your holidays? How about when you buy a new appliance you get an added years warranty?"
I had the best time, I got online and I cancelled the RAC breakdown service that I pay for every single month ( for 4 years that I didn't have to pay it!) The foneshield insurance, every month....the travel insurance I paid for only this morning...Ka- ching! I am not thinking about how much money I have spent in the 4 years, I am thinking about how much I no longer need to pay! How often do we get off the phone from the bank feeling we have come out winning? Quite. Thankyou Nat West, I shall no longer tsk tsk about that £12 fee every month.
I had my hair cut...great deal, one of Jordan's friends is in college and she works in a salon 2 days a week, so she cut it with the head stylist checking her every move, she did the best job, I love it and it cost £10!!
I downloaded christmas music the other day, the boys love it and earlier I heard them playing it, I went into the room and oh my heavens, 3 little boys doing the chipmonk dance from Alvin and the chipmonks....tomorrow they want to get their Elf costumes from the attic so that I can video them doing this dance, it is the funniest, cutest thing ever! I am enjoying these little boys so much at the moment..long may that last, little gits.
Good day, we like that vey much. Please sir, can I have some more?
