2 tips I learnt today and want to share - are you on O2 or do you buy childrens shoes in Clarks?

I have listed this as nonsense cos I guess together they are LOL!

Tip 1: If you are on O2, you can easily set your phone to ring longer before it goes to voicemail - Enter **61*901*11*xx# in to the phone application, where xx equals the length of time you want the phone to ring for, up to about 30 seconds and then press 'call'.

Tip 2: If, like me, you tend to buy your kiddies school shoes in Clarks, DON'T buy the ones with toys in the heel! The toy will get lost/broken within a week and - because there is a space cut into the sole for the toy - the heel will knacker quickly! My daughter's sole wore through to the space for the toy so I now have to go buy another pair which would not have needed replacing if it wasn't for that!

HTH!!!

The end - anyone else got some useful tips to share (we all know about yellow snow so no-one need post that one LOL!)

if you have friends coming round, spray radiators with furniture polish and whole house will smell just lovely!

(radiators need to be on though!!!)

Do you do any actual cleaning, only you have a vast knowledge on making your house seem like it's just been cleaned? :p
#14
wipe ur bum wen u do a turd, ths prevents skids :)
#15
That O2 code does seem to lengthen 20seconds before voicemail to around 30seconds, shame it wouldn't work with bigger than 30.
#16
For u single guys - when u have a girl coming round and u r too lazy to change the bed..........sprinkle sheets with talcum powder to give that "fresh" smell.

always check your receipt before you leave supermarket to make sure you paid the right price, tesco has double refunded me twice last month :)


always check the sell by date of stuff before you buy if you dont wanna have an upset tummy

How much do you charge - taking into account that we are HUKD sisters an' all? :whistling:

To prevent a mirror from fogging, take a little shaving cream and spread onto the mirror. Wipe well and ... no fog.

I phoned Carphone Warehouse today to ask them to switch my voicemail off because the phone doesn't ring long enough - they told me this trick instead :)

:lol::lol:

I am actually quite proud about it all. The only downfall is am absolutely done in all the time. Our phone never stops with new customers - yes its a good thing - but recently am finding it all very stressful and thats why I am so looking forward to this weekend WHEN WE FINALLY FLY OFF TO ANTIGUA FOR OUR HONEYMOON!!!!

My business partner is so lovely - we are the best of friends and she has assured me that everything will be just fine. I am the bossy one who does the books, the wages etc whereas she is the calm one who makes sure all the girls are okay and sorts out their lives for them!! We are a great team !!

p.s if u happen to get any pm's asking WHO - then please dont tell !

With regards to the Clarks shoes thing, don't you find they grow out of the shoes long before they've had chance to do any serious damage? I mean you do have more than one pair of shoes for them at any one time?
