depends on the type of RETURN they sent you, The Receipt will tell you how it has been sent (first second tracked insured etc)
Most returns of this nature are the cheapest option, so could take a while which is why your not having much luck tracking it down.

Wife has just transferred her part of the monthly outgoings (£800) from her current account onto her credit card from the same bank. Meant to go into the joint but made the mistake on her internet banking. Easy enough to get back with a call to the bank?

Yup just call them. They might be able to cancel the transfer, but failing that ask them to transfer the balance back from the credit card to the current account. It may take 3-5 working days though.

Imo now is a good time to buy (assuming it's a vote remain). The election has caused some slowing in the market and there is the odd deal about as buyers are holding off.

Get a compost heap going, chuck everything organic apart from branches into it and it will decompose

Ta, the old boy left a couple of compost bins. What do you do with it, pour on soil and beds ?

I've just moved into a flat next to an extremely busy A road. I underestimated how loud the noise would be and for the last three nights, I've hardly slept at all. Has anyone been in a similar situation? I hope I can get used to it.

If I was you I'd try and get used to the noise. Could even try talking some natural herbal sleeping tablets to ease you off into sleep. Once you use earplugs you get so used to them that it's almost impossible to sleep without them.

When I was a poor-ass student living in a dorm i just used wet glops of TP instead of any special plugs. And instead of a white noise machine you can close the windows down and get a cheapass electric fan. I also had shit like "relaxation music" playing.
