I did and they said it's up to me. That I'll have less room for complaint if I am not happy with their insurer but that it won't impact my premium.

Probably best to use your insurer in my opinion.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Yesterday at the hospital with Dad his consultant asked if he was getting any benefits and Dad said his old age pension and with past experience I just thought oh no and my fear was justified she then said that she would be filling out a DS1500 form for him to get attendance allowance and this will be fast tracked.

The good news is that my Dad seems none the wiser as what this form actually means but sadly I know what the criteria is for someone to need the DS1500 form but what really matters now is my Dad as I feel this is my only chance to truly move on from the past and I'm taking it, life really is too short to hold grudges with the ones we love.

Although I admit my emotions and thoughts are all over the place atm.

Good to know that the Consultant is on the ball about the extra benefits. Hopefully the DWP will be in touch within 2 weeks. Probably best if you let your sister know. PM me if you need me sweetie.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Huge gust of wind has snapped one of my banana palms right off at the base. Nothing I can do for it.

On it, and Damien I've just PM'd you. I'm a Paralegal for RTA, Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence cases now. Happy to give any forum members non-committal advice on such matters but am not touting for business.

My advice in these cases would always always always be to avoid leaving the other side insurer to handle it.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

My knee has been giving me grief on and off over the last couple of years. I wrecked it about thirty years ago skiing and it took a month or so to recover. It comes back to visit me every now and then.

I'm using some 5% Ibuprofen gel and that seems to help make it bearable. Last thing I really want is to have it operated on or a big needle stuck in there.

Yes mine does occasionally, the crank of a wind up cement mixer came out and walloped me right on the knee, every couple of years since when I fall or nearly fall over I'm reminded to be more careful

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

PC stopped working yesterday (6 years old).

Took it to a shop, and they’ve just got back to me - the motherboard (ASUS P8Z77-V) is fried, and they can’t source a replacement (i’ve looked as well, and can find one, but it’s second-hand, and £140).

If I get a new (modern) motherboard, I’ll need to upgrade the CPU and memory - may as well get a new PC, and then put the old 2TB Drive with all my data in to the new one...

They’ll give me a price for an upgrade, then I’ll do a comparison (I was going to get a new Graphics Card next month, so I’ll factor that in as well).

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

We're going to lose our weekly wheelie bin trash collections from the Autumn. It's going to alternate with the recycling that is currently fortnightly.

Not an issue for us as we only generate a small swing-bin liner full a week but some bins round here are already overflowing. Fortnightly and that'll twice as bad and what if they miss putting the bin out? Could be a months worth.

Might need a padlock on our trash bin to stop neighbours using it.

It's been like that since we got the bins donkeys years ago here.

We have 3 bins, Black(general waste) 1 week, and Blue(recycle) and Green(garden and food waste) the next etc.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

We've been lucky until now, at least the local (Worthing) council and neighbouring Adur have been pooling their resources and back office functions for some time to help maintain services and minimise tax increases despite cuts in central government grant.

We have a general trash Wheelie bin and a recycling one that can take almost anything even including black plastic trays. The sorting station has special equipment to detect these trays in place.

We live about a mile from the local dump and recycle station so our garden stuff goes there when the composters are full. They do do a paper bag (chargeable) service for garden waste that is picked up with the general trash or you can have a (green) wheelie bin for a small charge.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Anyone here remember when your one bin was emptied once a week?

Of course that was well before the substantial rise in the amount of ridiculous, and often unnecessary, packaging that we see today.
