Did it suit you?  The kettle I mean when you put it on?  Sounds like you had a great day and who cares about other things when you have visits like that!  So sorry about your daughter and the money.  It annoys me about banks, they are so quick to take it but very very slow to give back for any reason.  Hope the police get the b......s who did it.

What a lovely day, lots of nice coffee and chat :o)
Sorry to hear about your son in laws card being cloned though, just awful at any time, but at this time of year they will really miss the money.  I'd have thought that the bank would refund their money as a good will gesture to help them out, or is 'good will' not a phrase known to banks?!

Glad you've had a nice day :-)  Sorry to hear about Kate's husband's card fraud thingy.  That's so bad at this time of the year!!  Glad she's getting the money back though, which is a relief!!

Sorry to hear about the 'Problems' with the Bank, such a worry, but hopefully will be resolved - nice to have had the Sunday coffee and chat. Allan went to a Car Boot yesterday morning, and bought me a lovely Wicker Basket.
They are trying to close this Car boot, but have 5,000 signatures to keep it open!
'Bye for now
