Can anyone recommend a type or brand of CBD oil please?
Ive seen it mentioned in the anxiety and depression threads a few times but there seems to be a lot of brands. Was going to buy one, then one of the reviews said this is hemp oil not cannabis oil. Which threw me a bit.

I thought id give it a go, just to try to get a decent sleep for the first time in years.

my cousin used to buy from Holland and Barrett's to help him with coping with pain and sleepless nights

I can't remember the exact one he bought but here's a link to their products and there's a little bit of info at the top of the page but I would pop in/phone the shop and talk to them about it

Anyone had a problem with their direct debit to the DVLA for road tax?

Mine comes out on the 1st of the month but they've not requested it this time yet on the gov.com site it's saying it's taxed till Nov 21?

I need to use the car today but will it be legal if I do?

You've got evidence that says your car is taxed until Nov 21 so I'd still drive it, but would try to get in touch with the DVLA to see if there's any issue with payments at the moment too.

Husband's 40th birthday on November 21st - ordered him a cake and paid a deposit at a local cake 'shop'. I say shop, but it's more like a studio where she works. There is nothing to go in and purchase and take out, no drinks or cafe or anything.

I assume that will be dead in the water now, with the new regulations?

EDIT: I will reach out and ask her before Thursday if she doesn't contact me or announce on her website/Instagram, but would imagine she is having a busy day as it is!

Sorted now.  The dd was due to renew this month so it'll come out on 3td not 1st but I'd not had the notification of the changes from them.

Anyone any good with word?

I am trying to print off a mail merge onto labels (its a sheet of 64 with an address on each label). However the text is always too skewed to the left. Tried so much now, changing margins etc.

Is it just my printer?

I can't get it to adjust for all sections though, as the word doc has 300+ "secions" rather than pages. It only changes each section individually.

Actually think that solved it, I selected it all and changed the margins and it seems to have shifted. No idea why I hadn't tried that before.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a small flathead screwdriver for tightening up my glasses.

I've got a 1.0mm flathead already, but it's too big. So I'm after 0.9 or 0.8 flathead. Or something in that neck of the woods.

I don't necessarily want a 32 piece kit, either. Just a one off screwee if possible, or small 6 piece kit if I must.


Been looking for one for ages.  Not even sure they make them.

That said. The screw heads are that small, so someone must make one.

I have a copy of the date from my end when transfer was done & notification via email when they had received payment if that helps as well as the invoice.

Trading Standards won't get you a refund, or tackle your specific case for you. But by letting them know, and if other people complain about this seller as well, then they can choose to take action against them.

It's tricky to get a refund where there's no specific mechanism in place (such as ebay's guarantee) and the seller refuses to answer. Try Citizens Advice if you have no reply from them at all. But covid has made all this much more difficult.

I don't know how much your item cost, and I know this doesn't help you in this instance, but if you are buying anything that costs more than £100 (i.e £100.01p or more) then always pay by credit card, as under Section 75 of the CCA the credit card company becomes jointly liable to you for the correct fulfilmnt of the transaction, and will refund you if the original seller is mucking you about. Even if you pay just the deposit or even just 1p of the total cost on credit card they are liable for the full amount.

Good luck

BACS are pretty much instant these days. CHAPS will be about 3 days.

If they are answering emails then keep emailing them. If your email does read receipts then use those. Send a letter recorded delivery (signed for) if they are failing to answer anything else making sure they are aware this is a last resort before trading standards, police, their bank, etc are informed.

Anybody well versed in the art of ebay?

I'm after an item. £70ish. Christmas present, so ideally needs to arrive in time. It is being sold by two stores, same price and same delivery estimate of the 15th if free or the 9th if using paid courier. One says the item is located in Manchester and the other in Lancashire. But both stores are stated as being based in China and are relatively close together by Chinese standards.

I've sent a message to one of the stores asking if the item really is located in the UK. But do the delivery estimates seem too long for that to be the case? I don't know if I should trust being told they are in Manchester/Lancashire. And if I'm told no, should I risk it for an item of this value? It's also massive in size for what that matters.
