Hey toffee boy, I really hate to say this but you were stitched up! Alex knew the head gasket was going! He sold it from under my mum-it was her car, they knew the gasket was on the way out and mum wanted it repaired but he left her and promptly sold it...to you it would seem. She now has an old 199...

Mum is coming back here next month. She has had even more bad news last week though! A good friend has been taken very poorly into hospital-him and his wife have helped and supported mum throughout all her troubles. I am just glad she is coming home to me. It will be a little mad though-I have 4 kid...

Thank-you all for your concern. I just thought I would post an update as I haven't been on here for a while. He came back a few weeks ago and mum realised that she would have to agree to him coming back or she may regret it for the rest of her life-not knowing. Everything seemed to be getting back t...

The sad thing is...I thought of him as if his was my birth father. I just cannot understand how on this planet he has turned into a monster overnight. He loved my mum so much...or so we all thought. I have gone from loving him to hating every bone in his body in a few days. While my mum was here he ...

21-26 Nov-Whats on?

I am over with my two youngest to see my mum this week and was wondering if anyone knows of anything worth doing/seeing whilst we are there ( kids are 10 and 11 if that helps).

Thanx in advance. x

PS We are staying in Campanillas, Malaga.

What makes me laugh (I work with chip and pin card readers all day) is that if the customer forgets his pin and enters the wrong pin 3 times it puts a block on the card...but then proceeds to print a reciept to sign and continues to authorise the transaction anyway!!! No wonder there is no drop in f...

Tesco Internet Phone

Has anyone living in Spain got one?????

I have one in UK and have bought one for my mum to (hopefully) use. She has a vodafone USB modem and I am wondering how the phone will cope with this.
