Would you fake an insurance claim….

question mark

It's OK, I don't really expect anyone to come right out and admit that they would make a fake insurance claim but I just wanted to put the question out there. My reason for asking is that, as you might know, two weeks ago I was hit by a truck when I was driving home from work.  I walked away with no injuries thankfully although my car is looking like it's a write off due to the amount of damage done and obviously I'm going to claim on my car insurance policy for that.  I'm also going to try and claim my train costs as we were going away that weekend so we had to get the train as the car was … [Read more...]

  Seeing as I have plans of doing absolutely nothing today and tomorrow, I'm going to share with you the final update of my January to March giant to do list.  I didn't manage to do everything I wanted in the first few months of the year but I have had a lot of unplanned 'stuff' going on so I think I've done well to do what I have done *pats self on back*.

Our week in pictures – an interesting one at last….


You may (or may not) remember the last time I posted my weekly photo round-up a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was very conscious that a lot of the things that we were doing together were indoors and at home.  I've really tried to make more of an effort in the last two weeks to get out and about a bit more - despite the very cold March weather we're seeing at the moment! Top row: We were downstairs in Primark when we found a big pile of life size One Direction cardboard cutouts tucked out of the way - we couldn't resist standing them up and having a pose with them. Master … [Read more...]
