No because a lot can happen in a year for all they know your credit score could have changed in the last 12 months, it may have got higher or lower they don't know unless they run a check.

Thanks Weenie, but these are simply companies I considered changing to a year ago, but didn't place any insurance with. Except for one, which I finished with at that time. I haven't had anything to do with them since.

They will be ringing you up to try and get your business, as they know it is due for renewal...

They are 'pre-vetting' you.

Thanks Hugh. So I shouldn't be so paranoid, then?

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

You might want to check with the Credit Reference company - when I worked in Consumer Credit, too many credit checks negatively affected your Credit Score, as (then, mid 2000s), some people would try a number of different stores to get credit arrangements.

It may have changed in the last ten years.....

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Absolutely fuming. Adviser at JC saved 4 jobs the other week for me to apply, I applied for 3 and left the 4th as it was the same company, same role, but different wording. Told her so on Thursday, she said OK fine. However, got a letter this morning telling me that I had been referred to a decision maker as I had not applied for a job that my adviser had found.

Will be writing my letter of reply tomorrow, if I do it today I will swear and get abusive. Will not help at all.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

And the day ends on another high for me. Granddad is in hospital again, fourth or fifth time this year alone. This time coughing up blood, apparently he will be in and out for the future now. This sounds cruel, but it would be better for him and everyone else in the family if he died. I have to wonder how many more stays in hospital it will take before he finally succumbs.

You iron socks?

Apart from posh shirts we don't iron anything as we don't have things that need it.

Since I retired and no longer needed to wear formal clothes I have only ironed half a dozen items and on every occasions it was with great sadness. It appears that the only times I now use my iron is when someone dies. I hate my iron.
