    If you don’t explicitly tell Amazon that the premium delivery deadline was not met, they won’t refund you. (I was going to add “of course”, since that seems obvious to me – especially given the widely-reported unreliability of many couriers’ delivery confirmation processes. But perhaps some people actually do believe that Amazon has some magic,…[Read more]

    Always check if it’s ‘fulfilled by Amazon’ if not then you’re just dealing with a normal online seller. And don’t get angry, Amazon does provide an amazing service usually but at what cost to their employees. Maybe you could go and buy it in a shop. Or just stop moaning.

  • Small parcel delivery is Awesome, I have cctv footage of various Amazon delivery guys throwing parcels over my fence.

    DHL failed to deliver my Christmas present to my work, apparently according to them it was signed for by Mr Hargreaves. I don’t employ a Hargreaves or anyone with a similar name but they refuse to accept this.

  • There are some things in this world that just make me irrationally angry and I wish I knew how to deal with that anger, but I do not. One such thing is Amazon Premium Delivery.

    You know the story: ordered on Monday, paid for Premium Delivery for the promised delivery date of Thursday, nothing delivered on Thursday.

    Strangely, Amazon sent me an…[Read more]

    My advice would be to just go on there and have a laugh! I had one really great relationship with someone I met on POF and we are still friends now. I wouldn’t treat it like somewhere you are going to meet your life long partner, but you never know; I think it opens up some doors that wouldn’t have been otherwise.

  • interesting to me- timing wise!
    I was diagnosed 5 years ago exactly by chest xrays and spiro tests.
    I am having an episode right now, just come out of hospital.
    Jan 12- diagnose and told if I didnt give up smoking I would be dead in 5 years. Gave up there and then.

  • OK – I’m a lifelong asthmatic and it’s not quite the same as COPD but it is very similar

    My father has COPD – he smoked for 40 years and gave up, but by then the damage had been done, to both of us I guess, him active, me passive as a child.

    My advice is

    Keep active

  • @chris Diagnosis was done by 2 x 20min computerised breathing tests, can’t remember the name offhand.
    Symptoms being very out of breath when walking up inclines plus I didn’t seem to have the stamina to walk the miles I used to and occasionally out of breath when laid in bed.

  • How where you diagnosed and what were your symptoms?
    key things- don’t smoke. Avoid dust if poss (horse better in haulage and shavings or similar than straw and hay). Keep active- if you get a cold/cough/chest infections it will worsen your symptoms and you may need steroid treatment and hospitalization but for the large part it shouldn’t affect…[Read more]

    Just been diagnosed with it, not sure, even after reading the booklets given to me, how much it’s going to change my life.

    If child lives primary with the parent who wants to take them on holiday then they should ask there solicitor to write to the other parent outlining the intention to take them on holiday and the dates. Let the other parent then do the chasing to stop it – it wouldn’t stand up in court! It was more complicated for us as my son was traveling to the…[Read more]

    If both parents are named on the Birth Cert then doesn’t matter if one doesn’t want the other to take the kid on hols. Nothing they can do unless there is a residency order. Even if child lives with mum after separation the dad still has the same parental rights. And vice versa.

    @don I don’t trust him because he has proven he is negligent bordering on completely insane many times. I was not suggesting this was the case here but you asked for people’s experiences and that is mine!

    Despite the fact my ex is a moron I still believe if he went to the court there would be no grounds to stop him taking her.

  • don replied to the topic Anyone had experience? in the forum General chat 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    @fi do you not trust your ex to care for his child? Is there a lack of care concern? I am only asking as in this case the care cannot be faulted.

    Another argument has come up now that because one parent is scared of flying they now do not want the child to go. Now the anger is that the child is now missing out on a family holiday with their other…[Read more]

    I don’t want my ex taking my daughter abroad in case something happens to her. He’s a bad enough father in this country. However, I have no desire or plans to go abroad either so it’s one thing which hasn’t become an issue as yet.

    Court is very expensive and time consuming so I would avoid it if you can. It’s costing me 2 K to defend a legal…[Read more]

  • don replied to the topic Anyone had experience? in the forum General chat 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Thank you for your replies. I cannot find anything unlawful about taking a child abroad. The new excuse is that the child is too young but my relatives are taking their child ( who is more than a year younger) on holidays to the other side of the world. I think the other parent is just being nasty for the sake of it.

    How expensive is it to go…[Read more]

  • Yes I’m having this problem at the moment. My ex doesn’t want me to take our daughter abroad even for a holiday because my partner lives abroad and he thinks I wouldn’t bring her back.

  • Of one parent not allowing another parent to take a child abroad on holiday?
