    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    Our car's a bit of a "banger" but what the hell it gets us from A to B! Place could do with re-decorating but I think that'll be my new year's resolution!

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    I'm sort of in my first paragraph, semi retired, oh's retired, mortgage free, bit of savings but still a bit of debt to pay off. Not a huge amount. Catalogue down to £500 and about £1k left on a credit card which I am no longer using to spend. I moved two card balances onto a 26 mth 0% interest...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    I think there are many people who've worked hard all their lives, have good pensions, have been financially astute (or lucky) over the years, are now mortgage free, no more travel costs to and from work and apart from the bills, council tax etc etc (that they had to pay anyway) are finding that...

    Magazine subscription - head against a brick wall!

    Last Christmas I subscribed to "The Oldie" magazine for my husband for a Christmas present, the subscription included a personalised christmas card with a subscription certificate inside it and a book of cartoons. So on Christmas day he had these to open and the first issue he received in...

    Ophelia

    That made me chuckle as I worked there part time for 10 years and I still know nothing about spirits, the paranormal ones or otherwise! Literallyology - Love it!

    What a ridiculous collar

    I think he usually gets it right, but there are a few occasions (like this one) where the clothes are wearing him! I don't know how tall he is, but he looks pretty small. Ruth Langsford is 5'7" and was wearing heels which could quite possibly made her 5'10" - She dwarfed Miceal so I reckon he...

    Christmas Gifts TSV 01/12/22

    I bought those and I think they're brilliant, I don't have too much trouble folding them up, although they never look as "neat" as they're supposed to. The insulation on them is brilliant, one of the rare QVC purchases that I felt wasn't a waste of money!

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    I think she said that she was going to place it in a porch, so it wouldn't be affected by the weather, even so, I'd still consider £30 too much to pay for one of these things. I bought one, ok it was a few years ago for my Tea loving friend, who also loves plants and gardening and paid...

    What a ridiculous collar

    He interrupted a RL fashion show a couple of days ago wearing a black blazer with a satin collar, Ruth walked over to him and put her arm around him, she towered over him and instead of looking like a dapper fashionista, he looked like a silly little squirt!

    Cost of living? Not on QVC

    The way things are nowadays makes a mockery of all the hard work our parents and grandparents had to go through in order to feed us, clothe us and give us treats. Of course there's always been people more well off, and I'm not saying that they haven't worked hard for their money, but for...

    Ophelia

    That's an improvement as far as I'm concerned, I didn't enjoy watching her struggle, it was cringeworthy. If she ends up confident and competent all well and good, if she ends up getting on my nerves for other reasons I'll switch over!

    Ophelia

    Just been watching her with Worzel Gummidge, and for the first time ever, yes, by Jove, she's got it! Well, let's just say she's getting there. She's a lot more fluent, her comments are making sense, she's not simply repeating the words of the BA, she's not just saying "Love, love love" or "I'm...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    Good point, and I totally agree. If people want to spend hours trawling the website looking for "bargains" or sitting goggle eyed in front of the telly all day that's up to them, anyone with a spending habit doesn't need that extra voice telling them "quick, buy now or you'll miss out". Qurio...

    Cost of living? Not on QVC

    I agree, but it's the handbag/shoe obsession that I can't get my head around, and jewellery that people often wear all at once, so the impact of a stunning piece gets lost. There's a lady at work who's heavily into "gold" and I get that being in a workplace that doesn't allow one to wear what...

    Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

    Sorry, she'd written that in the comments bit. Her latest video is of a pair of palazzo trousers for £4.95 & £1.95 postage, so in all not a bad deal. I'd have like to have seen her "style them up" with a t shirt instead of bunging them on with a cozee home pyjama top. Having said that I'm sure...
