I made use of the £5 trading commission with Halifax today

I did think about buying shares especially when i visit about 3 times a year. It all seems a tad confusing though that's the problem

It is straightforward. Its the 1st time I used Halifax & it was really easy. My other 10 are held with BNP Paribas as I held them for over 10 yrs. It is really difficult trying to get them to buy me more shares which is why I asked the shareholders club if I can have the shares in 2 accounts

I have more then made my money back with the discounts. If you want some help how to buy them i'm happy to try & help

Doesn't it just! Hope you get it sorted Monday. I changed my DDs phones from payg to monthly contracts a couple of weeks ago - next thing I know I've got SIX contracts and yes, they've all been taken from my account. Luckily I got it sorted quite quickly so hope yours gets done as easily too.

Thanks 6 accounts! that's crazy, so glad you got it sorted but you could really do without the extra hassle of sorting stuff out. I'm going to give them a call tomorrow so I'm sure that'll make for a fun day off

Wow I haven't been on here since my Dads wedding. I am loving Carrie Cats update photos!

Ive had such a hectic week. The night before Dad's wedding I was outside and I didn't see a step and I fell down it and hurt my ankle. I put it straight in iced water and we all hoped it was just a bit of a sprain... But it swelled up pretty quickly!
The next morning my ankle was bruised and huge and the pain was excruciating! Dad said he would have to bring me to hospital for an xray! This was 5 hours before the wedding!!! So he said we would go to A&E in the private hospital because God only knows how long we would have been if we went to the public one!
So we got to Galway clinic and explained what had happened and told the lady that Dad was getting married at 2pm (it was actually 3 but I still had to go and get my hair and make up done so this little white lie was justified!).

They were absolutely fantastic! A nurse saw me straight away to check blood pressure etc and then a doctor saw me who sent me to the x-ray department straight away. The porter who wheeled me down to the x-ray dept was lovely. She checked me in there and explained how Dad was getting married and withing 2 minutes I was being wheeled to the x-ray theatre skipping the 10 or so people waiting for an x-ray! I was finished in there within a few minutes and was brought back to A&E.

Thankfully nothing was broken, I had just damaged my ligaments. They gave me painkillers, a difene injection and a prescription for more difene and the wrapped my ankle up. Then they gave my a shiny pair of crutches! Unfortunately the didn't match my dress!

I was delighted that nothing was broken but I ended up wearing my vans instead of my lovely heels... Luckily enough my dress was full length so nobody could see them

It did put a spoiler on the day as the castle where we were was amazing and I only made it to the top once on the night when we arrived.. before I fell.. I was really disappointed about that because it was just so beautiful but there was no way I was going to chance going up the spiral staircase incase I did more damage. But I had such an amazing time. I work part time in a hotel in the town where I live to fund college and my to keep my Disney fund account afloat, and I always work at the weddings there and I have to say that Dad's wedding was miles ahead of any wedding that I have worked at and I have worked at about 800 weddings! There was such a relaxed amazing atmosphere it was beautiful!

To add to my eventful week, I wont go into too much detail but my aunt also died (I knew this would happen soon, she had anorexia and I have only seen her 2 times in the last 10 years, she was quite sick and we all knew that she was beginning to lose the strength she had for so long)... And my little cousin was christened (this was a nice uplift for my mams family and a nice way to end a sad week for her and her sisters and brother).

Oh I hate when things like this happen... They always happen to me when I am actually in DLP! I once got charged 3 times for a meal in the Yacht Club! Although Disney only received the money once it came out of my account 3 times and I had to wait 3-5 working days before the money, which was somehow lost in space, reverted back into my account! The manager in the NPB was a great help though and the CM on the information desk in the Cheyenne was fantastic when I explained to him what had happened and he let me ring my bank on their phone.. It would have cost me a fortune to ring on my mobile!

Then in the TOT shop my laser card tripped their system and I got charged twice for a hoodie... I used my bf's ipod touch to go online and take screen shots of my bank account showing the transaction went out twice.
This also happened in Colonel Hathi's Pizza Outpost where again my laser card tripped their system and I then paid cash... I was able to take a screen shot of my account and show that the transaction had infact been made and I got refunded....

Thanks, I feel guilty saying it but I wasn't upset as I didn't really know her as she had distanced herself from the family about 15 years ago so I rarely saw her. She as only 40 years old. I did feel sad for her 4 sisters and brother though.


But the wedding was just so beautiful and magical!

It was 1940's theme, there was candles everywhere, everyone looked fantastic and it was so intimate. The dining room was small enough so the 70 guests were close and the candles just made the room magical. Then the band sang rat pack style songs and everyone could still talk while the band played in the corner. Before this there were 2 ballroom dancers that came in and did some 1940's style dancing. It was fantastic! Then everyone got a quick dancing lesson for the foxtrot, the cha cha cha and basic dance steps. I was disappointed to be on crutches at this stage as I had done a dance lesson with this teacher before and it was fun!

at 1 am we all went to the upstairs drawing room where the pianist in the band stayed and played some songs while various people sang songs as well as Dad's fiancée's choir who were amazing!!!

It was such a brilliant night and one of the best weekends of my life! It was magic!

Hope your ankle heals quickly Laura

I became a house owner as of yesterday, as I was working nights I didn't go round till today. I realise a lot more needs painting now the furniture has gone but it won't take too long.

Also had to have my fridge freezer sent back as it was dented on one side, the delivery guys weren't really helpful telling me it won't go in the house, even though the previous owners had the same one & they got it in by taking the doors off.

Oh well it just means a little longer before I move in properly

Looking forward to a return after no Disney at all last year. Anywhere in the world! Will be my first winter trip, and my first trip since the installment of Toy Story Playland. Excited to be taking some first time visitors along with me too.

OT - Anyone here or anyone know of any Disney crazy fully grown guys, and its actually the female partner that doesnt really 'get it'? lol. Thats me anyway. I guess I just come from and grew up in a Disney family.

Hope you're all well. Decided to join in the Chat thread... Im on here enough lately, so why not.

Ryan (becaus emost dont know my realy name)

Not really that situation as I am obviously a bit Disney mad.. but my other half was unsure about Disney at first (just through never going really) but now counts down how long until our trip every day! He was just amazed by Disney having only been to Chessington etc before - kept being fascinated by the real buildings etc - not cheapo MDF sets! Never thought I'd get him to DLP twice in 6 months - yay for APs!

Also thought I'd join the chat thread as I hang around here so/too much!

This time next week I'll have left my job - then a week off (including DLP ) before I start a whole new job - bit nervous! Good excuse for new clothes shopping through right?
