  3. So, my OH is online right now giving money to the Sally Army and I've given a paltry amount to this site. Now I want serious recommendations for small charities for the last of our spare cash. My two big interests are the homeless and mental health (obviously linked). If anyone knows of a charity where £20 could make a difference I'm honestly interested.

  6. How do you Prepare for Santas visit. Do you make sure your chimney has been swept so he does not get any soot on his clothes. Of course we know if a chimney is not available a couple of clicks of his fingers and hey presto he materialises wherever he likes.

Do you leave them some water,some mince pies perhaps,a few carrot
  7. Monopoly chiefs have set up a Christmas hotline to prevent board game bust-ups over the festive period. The helpline is to open in light of a survey that found 51% of Monopoly games end in a row. The most common cause of quarrels was due to people "making up the rules as they go along". The hotline will open from 24th - 26th December, when families will be able to get mediation on any game-based arguments. http://www.itv.com/news/2016-12-19/monopoly-christmas-helpline-opens-to-prevent-boardgame-bust-ups/
  8. Hi everyone, I'm new here and after some advice. I was made redundant from my job last September through no fault of my own and been signing on ever since. However, before Christmas I had an appointment with my advisor at my local job centre and gave me details of a job to apply for but 2 weeks ago I received a letter saying that they are going to stop my job seekers allowance from the end of January to the middle of march. I have since appealed the decision in writing but when i went to the job centre today I had to fill in another form and explain again. I know it was my fault for

  13. So Christmas is nearly upon us once again...... A time for giving, sharing, fun, laughter and good food. But it also makes us remember people we love who are no longer here to celebrate. I turn 41 on Sunday, and it has always been a tradition in my family that the decorations go up on my birthday. When I had my own family, the tradition continued, however my loving Mum and Dad are no longer here to join in, and putting up the decs whilst celebrating my birthday brings both joy and pain because it brings back so many memories. (My Dad loved Christmas so much he had us playing Chris
