SUPER CHICKEN!!! (16/19)



  1. I have found calling them and speaking to someone helps rather than their email system. Do you by any chance have a bank statement showing the date the money was withdrawn for the purchase? Failing that I would be paying that seller a little visit.
  2. I haven't had any breaks recently.
  3. I have used MyHermes before. Cheap and cheerful. DO NOT break anything... yes you Lewis! want to borrow my bubblewrap??
  4. Good to hear. Don't be surprised by the offer of secondment, be confident in knowing that they saw potential in you and ant to give you the opportunity... go girl.
  5. I agree with the others, take it! prove to them what you can do. If your secondment ends for whatever reason look at it as a good form of self development and add it to your CV. I am currently on secondment I love my new job, didn't really fit with my old, although for same 'company' I am now in a different department/line manager. I am on two pay bands higher now than my substantive role so like you I had to think hard about how to proceed as this all happened as I was losing my dad too, however I think as long as you do not become reliant on the extra money and see it as a bonus for a short while it will work out. If then it becomes permanent all the better. Good Luck and most importantly, enjoy it!
  6. Congratulations to you both.
  7. So sorry to hear B is unsure Karin. Its so hard for her with her mobility issues not to mention the news of her best friend. So so hard. xxx DS communicated for a few hours on Skype on Sunday... I almost asked who had taken over the computer I was that amazed! He is homesick too but loving the experience and the new friends he has made. He also seems to love a place called 'Chunky Chicken' He is living on Pasta, toasted sandwiches, dippy eggs, toast, pot noodles, lasagne and korma curry so he isn't doing too bad for a week away. He has no lessons on a Monday so always has a long weekend, the jammy beggar.
  8. yes far too much partying! every time I speak with him lately he is pre-drinking His loan is now not approved again... seriously fed up with them now. New identity form being sent in as they didn't approve the first one.
  9. My son has "fresher flu" apparently to you and me that's a cold, but he does sound grotty. Hasn't stopped him going out each night though. He loves how Nottingham is so much cheaper than Cambridge, he said "mum I bought a chicken for 75p!" I was excited until I realised it was a cooked chicken.
  10. I am so glad they changed things Karin as they were breaking the law making her lectures inaccessible for her. Yes I am glad it's approved as well, after 5 different figures that he will be paid .. finally.
  11. ahh Jules, no your not alone. I wouldn't sleep last night. Silly I know as he often slept out when here at home but I just couldn't sleep at all. I have been told it gets easier! He is my oldest so its all new to me. Youngest (DS2) is in an apprenticeship programme and is adamant he wont want Uni "at those prices!" but we will see in a few years what he decides as I believe he has 4 years of this accounting to go through first.
  12. Well he's there and settled. I have heard from him since I got home and apparently the people in his flat are really nice. I have wine and chocolates for tonight..
  13. I heard you from Cambridge. I am good now thanks, it's been a rough year and actually even the year before but getting there now, how are you doing? I am pleased to hear Rosie is doing so well I agree with your friend we haven't done too bad a job if they have that confidence. I have just been in his room and fumigated.. I mean tidied.. that boy can hold clutter.. actually man but always my boy. His room looks like we have been robbed and I don't like it, I had to close the door.
