Hi Andy,

Hope your surgery goes well and that you are on top form again soon.  I found your write up on your rebate from HM Revenue and Customs very funny.  About 20 years ago, I received a Final Demand from a Christmas card catalogue company for  0.01p - yes one penny! I decided that the postage to send the bill would have covered the debt at least 20 times over and thought no more about it. I then received another letter from them stating that if I did not pay up then legal action would be taken.  I duly went to the bank and paid in the one penny piece. I won't repeat what the shocked teller said but she did call a couple of her colleagues over and they had a good laugh.   I thought the jobsworth who had sent the demand letter was absolutely nuts and I  started buying my Christmas cards in store instead.

Andy, I can be a back up to Pete's offer.  Also do you have someone to get/provide food for you?  If not just let me know.

All the best for a speedy recovery
