Private Home Helps
7 Posts Last Activity 08/01/2017View
During a conversation with a new member of staff I was utterly shocked when she told me that she and a friend work as private home helps for rich elderly people. They charge the clients £20/£25 per hour each that is they both attend and charge £40/£50 per hour. I think this is outrageous and wonder whether to report them but who would I report to? BTW these home helps are in their mid 50's!

In these days of recycling has it ever been considered that coffins should be hired instead burnt with the bodies which is a terrible waste of wood?

Last night we popped into our neighbours for a drink. They had put some humous and carrots and breadsticks out for us to enjoy ... and then to my horror, I saw the host dip his breadstick, take a bite, and then dip it again!! Is it just me, or do you find double dipping repulsive? Fine if the food is just for you, but what about when it is to be shared by others?? My stomach just turned and I continued to enjoy my glass of wine, and declined the offer of the humous!

When do you stop buying Christmas presents for nieces, nephews and godchildren?
13 Posts Last Activity 05/12/2016View
We have a really large family, and I think we should agree to stop buying presents for nieces, nephews and godchildren once they have reached 18. What do you think? Is this fair enough or am I being unreasonable? What do you do?

Well done to England and Scotland for going against FIFA and wearing their poppies while playing. Now I hear that Wales have refused to wear the poppy in their match. I am ashamed to be part Welsh and my father would turn in his grave on hearing this. He went through the war with so many other Welsh men and we should respect these men and women and show how we care by wearing the poppy.

Let's get fireworks banned from the general public... another dog died last night who was frightened to death. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/168663 If you agree, copy the link and vote to get the law changed! or maybe you disagree? Share your views with me ....

Magazines at the Doctor's surgery

I've just been doctors. Why are the magazines always years old? I picked one up and it featured Lady Diana's funeral. How long has she been dead? I should have nicked them and put em on the Antique roadshow!

Adele - do you like her songs?

Is it just me who finds Adele's songs and singing downright depressing. I have to switch the radio off every time she comes on singing those dreadful dirges. Yet everyone seems to rave about her in the Media, the woman drives me mad.

Anyone come across this private parking company. Sent me letter demanding £90 for not showing blue badge. I did display it but it must have fallen off when I opened car door. They asked for proof then said it would be £15. I disputed this but they're not backing down. I know they can't prosecute but apparently they put it on your credit record. What really infuriates me is that it happened once before and the proper authority accepted my explanation. I'm waiting for a hip replacement and am awkward getting in and out of car at the moment.
