    Sorry if it sounded like that! I completely believe what you're saying on the dexcom, I don't think the sensors can be stretched on the libre from what I've read. Would be great if they can

    I reread and I got it wrong and edited while you were posting, if they have a time chip in the sensor it will be hard to reset, but that's just mean :)
    with the CGM you tell the handheld that it's a new sensor and off you go again, going by the net

    We'll done you. I've got Brithday money in my drawer and I'm itching to buy it. Couldn't afford the £100 a month though afterwards.

    Mine is showing as pending as well.
    I spoke to a rep (Charlotte) at FreestyleLibre yesterday as the vat was not being deducted at the checkout stage - she told me to go ahead with the purchase and the money will not be taken from my paypal account until they had manually deducted the vat from the total (for those who filled in the vat relief form).
    I did see on another thread that they have reviewed the delivery cost as well - to what I don't know but it would be nice if this is true.

    Nothing yet I had the same email with order confirmation, I looked on the account section and it says 3-5 working days for delivery so hopefully here something by Tuesday thursday or Friday would be perfect for my days off :)

    Still pending here @Emmotha. No delivery details yet, so obviously not dispatched yet. My last email was yesterday when they said they'll take the full amount charged and then credit back the VAT and the extra postage they accidentally charged - it should be £4.95 delivery and they accidentally charged £10.80. They reckon that's the quickest way of sorting it out.

    If you look at their website now, it is saying 3 to 5 working days for delivery, so at least Wednesday for you and me.
