Hello all, just a reminder that I'll be in the craft shop within Strikes Garden Centre at High Legh, Knutsford, Cheshire tomorrow from 10am-4pm if you are in the vicinity. There's a coffee shop, so you can always park the non crafters in the family for half an hour!
I also wanted to share something which I was told about yesterday by a very nice man that I spoke to about my phone bill yesterday! I often have to ring those 0845/0870numbers which, even though I have a phone plan which includes free calls, I have to pay at least 10p per minute for. They appear on the bill as NG which stands, apparently, for "non-geographic". What the companies who use these numbers don't tell us is that there are alternative, ordinary ones that we can dial and will not cost an arm and a leg - especially when they are normally the ones where we have to hang on in a queue for twenty minutes or press this, that or the other button to actually speak to a real person. So, I checked it out and, yes, I could get through with no problem. If you want to find the cheaper (or free, depending upon your phone plan) then go to http://www.saynoto0870.com/, look at the top left where it show "search for an alteranative number", click that and then type in the number the number that you would normally use and a list will come up of the alternative ones. I already got a free number for rail enquiries and one to get straight into the queue to speak to an advisor instead of pressing seventy two buttons first! I also got a new number to call my bank for balance enquiries which normally costs me 10p per minute. Sorry if I am giving old news here, but I had never come across this before and the lovely man I spoke to yesterday said that the companies don't want us to know because they are making so much money with the 0845 system. No point in lining their coffers I say!
Well, I have done my samples for tomorrow and David has made me an egg and bacon sandwich and a coffee, so I am going to go and enjoy that now. Hope everyone is having a lovely Easter break...shame the weather is typically Bank Holiday'ish! Lindsay
