Someone said :

I would think about going to see your GP because sleeping that much is a sign of clinical depression. I went through something similar after my Dad died though, I just kept falling asleep at weird times of the day and I was tired all the time. My doctor said it was very normal part of grieving and it did pass eventually.

I'd be with Penny on this one.. sounds like clinical depression.. went through something similar a few years back.. slept for 16 hours a day.. Escitalopram is a great drug.. wouldn't say i'm cured, but i don't want to kill myself anymore..

http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/as-happy-as-larry.html

Larry - certainly the best known character in the world of similes. The expression he instigated is most likely to be of Australian or New Zealand origin. The earliest printed reference currently known is from the New Zealand writer G. L. Meredith, dating from around 1875:

"We would be as happy as Larry if it were not for the rats".

Almost all the other early citations are from Australia or New Zealand; for example, this from Tom Collins (the pen name of the popular Australian writer Joseph Furphy), in Barrier Truth, 1903:

"Now that the adventure was drawing to an end, I found a peace of mind that all the old fogies on the river couldn't disturb. I was as happy as Larry."

larry foleyBut who was Larry? There are two commonly espoused contenders. One is the Australian boxer Larry Foley (1847 - 1917). Foley was a successful pugilist who never lost a fight. He retired at 32 and collected a purse of £1,000 for his final fight. So, we can expect that he was known to be happy with his lot in the 1870s - just when the phrase is first cited.

The alternative explanation is that it relates to the Cornish and later Australian/New Zealand slang term 'larrikin', meaning a rough type or hooligan, that is, one predisposed to larking about. 'Larrikin' would have been a term that Meredith would have known - the earliest printed reference is also from New Zealand and around the time of the first citation, in H. W. Harper's Letters from New Zealand, 1868:

"We are beset with larrikins, who lurk about in the darkness and deliver every sort of attack on the walls and roof with stones and sticks."

That question is best directed at your independant ressource! S/he should know!
You have a policy signed with your bank, so have that. And their terms and conditions from their web-site at least, for these products...

Maybe call the bank and asked for a details annual statement, on as many years in the past as they are willing to provdie for free. Check online if you have access to you rpolicy documentation too, in case there is an online login / banking of sorts...

Do you not have any copies? A bank won't deal with a third party, you just need to get them copies of everything?

I've never experienced any real form of hay fever before - if anything my senses are more agreeable in the high solar times.

I'm checking out the new fabric softener etc.

Still, a noise with the nose all day.
