We have never had a win?
My dad got us £25 worth in 1973 when we got engaged.  Not a single penny win in all these years and they are now not worth cashing in.

We got our tv licence payment plan. We pay quarterly so it's not a big outlay.

Only for NHS issues. His private one cost over £2k a few years ago, with a promise of free batteries, service and repair for life. But now the agent is not replying to phone calls or letters since he moved to a new Newport office. The manufacturer says he has the franchise, has had his cut of the profits, so is responsible for it all.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Another Premium Bond win for Pol...don't know how much as she hasn't opened it yet.

And a "letter" from a paternal cousin suggesting a family get together "while we still can". She lives in Spain, so I don't think it'll be over there.

2 T-shirts from the missus.

Ordered from a site in the USA, paid in $$$, made in Germany, and posted from there on 23rd December, with a dispatch note in Euros amounting to under 50% of what I paid....

Podiatrist appointment for Chris. Strictly for housebound and every three month we have to say why he's housebound.
Wish someone would put it on a computer somewhere instead of this waste of energy and time.
