I seemed to spend a lot of time sorting out financial type things last night:

My credit card bill didn’t seem to have been paid by direct debit. I phoned my credit card company and they assured me they had the money. I am hoping they have taken the money from someone else’s account now!

I shut a savings account that was giving me a rubbish interest rate and am about to move it to a new account that also has a rubbish rate, but not quite so rubbish.

I realised that some Tesco clubcard vouchers were about to expire so cashed them in for some restaurant vouchers. G was going through the pile of vouchers and found two that expired a while ago. So... when I was ‘buying’ the restaurant vouchers, I tried the expired vouchers and one of them still worked, despite being about four months out of date. Result! Let’s hope the voucher now turns up in the post.

I remembered that I needed to apply for £20 cashback for the SatNav I bought. So I filled out the form for that and will send that off today.

Totally unrelated, I really like this song by Arcade Fire. I just thought I would mention this.

Can you sort out my paperwork for me please?

Kahless - absolutely. It's always easier to sort out someone else's life than your own!

I have an expired Tesco clubcard voucher, thanks for the tip! Family days out deals for us. Crowded venues and other people's small children. Strange how your own kids (usually) seem relatively civilised in comparison!

Sarah - the voucher expired in My. The one that expired in Feb didn't work though.

The thought of going to family days out places fills me with horror. I would have to take a holiday afterwards I think!

Sarah said...

Tried it anyway; one from Feb, one from May. Same result. Naturally, the Feb voucher was the most valuable of all the vouchers I had!

Some family days out are better than others. We will be going to Conkers in the National Forest; a relatively quiet experience...

Sarah - I hope that means they both worked. I got my restaurant vouchers a couple of days ago, so one of the vouchers being out of date was fine.

I hope Conkers in the National Forest is good. perhaps I should take my nephew.
