We each have our own Nationwide account, and also a joint account with Nationwide. This works very well for me as I can manage it all online and I have power of attorney so can manage Paul's as well. However, he saw an advert where the Woolwich would pay him £100 to change his account to them, and he has gone ahead and done this, though I said it was better leaving it as it was and it wouldn't be worth £100 for the extra bother it would cause me!

Today I have felt really quite well. My sister Linda, who has Downs Syndrome, came over for her lunch and we went shopping in the afternoon. I have had little or no breathlessness today.

Decided to shake off the lethargy and go food
