  1. If the daughter has been paying for the pet insurance then she could simply cancel the direct debit. Unless of course she is planning on keeping the pups ! Perhaps she could have a word with the local vet being used and ask to put a 'For sale' - or 'new Home required' notice on their notice board. I would imagine that puppies would be reasonably easy to rehome/sell.
  2. As advised, do not make any hasty decisions - this is obviously a stressful situation, so seek the help of your GP and obtain a sick note for a couple of weeks. If you have been working for this company for 14 years now, it does seem unreasonable of your employer to take this stance. If performance has not been an issue previously then it does rather look as though this is being used as an excuse so you need to protect yourself. ACAS, Citizen's Advice and/or an employment solicitor will almost certainly be able to advise. IMHO, you should not resign as this could almost certainly cause you financial issues if you are going to need to claim extra benefits at a later stage.
  3. Thank you for updating your thread, I am sure it will be very useful to anyone else finding themselves in your situation. Very pleased to hear that your stress levels have reduced and the process seems pretty straightforward.
  4. Was this gift mentioned in MiL's will.. for example, did it say that you would be able to choose an item? If this was the case, then I believe you would be entitled to keep this.
  5. These are terrible.. worse than the 'knock, knock jokes my son used to plague me with lol. Good though x
  6. Have I missed something, you have admitted using the energy - despite whether or not it was your choice of supplier. Why not simply pay what you owe and then you can forget about it. !!
  7. Just a recap for my own thoughts. Son and Fiancée left a valuable ring at a Holiday park - no doubt in error. The now ex Fiancée arranged with the Holiday Park for the ring to be returned. Holiday Park used Hermes Courier company to do this. You need to establish with the Holiday Park Do they have receipts for the despatch How the item was packaged for despatch - although we should not assume - it is unbelievable that a valuable ring was simply shoved into a jiffy bag ! Who valued the ring for the despatch ? One assumes the Fiancée explained it was valuable and one would assume that even the Admin staff at the Holiday Park would not simply assume an engagement ring to be valued at £20.00 (although IMHO you should not have to pay extra insurance to the courier company for doing their job !)
  8. Ah right, my apologies. I did not check the posting dates and thought today was the 'Big' day. hopefully you wont be kept waiting too long.
  9. So, today is the day ? How does the court system work in the current Covid situation ?
  10. Hi CitizenB


    Thanks for looking at my thread.

    Just wanted to ask, is there a thread on here that deals with Investment Fraud.



  11. Hi Citizen B


    Long time since I've been on here, Have a problem if you can help me.

    Purchased a cooker Feb 3rd 2020, it now become faulty.

    Contacted Curry's and was told in a polite way to go away, as the Guarantee had run out by 2 weeks.

    Is there a template letter i could use, as I'm sure there is an extension from the manufacturers when it comes out from the factory.

      Hi Gazza, if you check out a few of the Curry's threads, you are not the only one to be given the heave ho.  There are plenty of examples of how you should make your next move. 



  12. Righto. I guess that covers the house of Lords as well ?
  13. https://www.gov.uk/applying-for-probate https://farewill.com/articles/how-long-does-probate-take#:~:text=Probate usually takes 1-3,sell property and pay taxes. It does seem to be a bit of a farce - and yes, I imagine currently they are incredibly busy, but you sent your paperwork back in July of last year. It does seem very unfair. It looks to me from information on the above links that it can take anything from 1 - 3 months and even up to 12 months or more, depending on the complexity of the will. Needless to say, I hope you are not left waiting too much longer - especially as some of the delay appears to be the loss of documents. I will bring your query to the attention of those on the site team who have more experience in this area than I do.
  14. so, which 'some of them' gets the vaccine as priority then ?
  15. Many thanks for this information.
