    a quick question pretty please

    I seem to have run out of gradual facial tan i seem to think i got the last lot in one of the poundshops, a Dove one and i think i got a few as a stockpile, don't remember running out before

    in the meantime i am improvising with what i have - very minute dots from combined face and body graduals. its very subtle hardly noticeable but especially in the winter i end up looking like morticia with anaemia if i am not using it.

    Ive been looking at what versions there are, things like Olay sunshine etc £8 - £10 price range

    so when you ate in places like Home Bargain, B&M, poundshops etc and spot anything that looks likely please give a LOUD shout out

    Just had a visit from exOH & his son....
    I knew he would call in today as he had texted me in the week asking for a cheap hotel in London for him & son for school holiday....
    His way of asking in a roundabout way to stay with Mum & Dad...
    So I had rung Mum & she said 'of course' texted him back with this...
    No reply so I predicted he would turn up...
    As the last time he called in was on his Birthday as I always give him a present...
    The next time he call by will be his son's Birthday in December

    So I'm looking forward to a repeat of some sort this week. Please note I've now had 3NSD in a row and don't intend any grocery shopping today either. I'm going with Dd to Inspirations in Bromborough today. Does everyone who lives that way know about it? It a wholesaler, advertised as floristry but their Christmas decorations are amazing and even better at wholesale prices. I first discovered it through work but am going with Dd to start her Christmas decorations collection! They sell all sorts of homeward, we bought our dinning room furniture from there a couple of years ago. We had admired the collection at our local garden centre for years so when I saw it in there I couldn't believe it we saved hundreds
    I do have a membership card but I'm thinking it could be a good day out for emerald and Josie if you like that sort of thing. Last year they opened it to the public I will find out if that's still the case today and let you know.

    If you haven't got yours yet in T, one Optiwell, one can of cider (silver), 6 x 10p sweets for 50p, one banana and another 10p item will get you your shop for around the cost of the Opti and Cider after BG kicks in - which you will get back from CoS.

    I got a shop to £3.88 as I was in a rush before 4pm close - free sweets ready for Halloween (if they last that long!)

    Morning everyone. Trying to catch up a bit and am confused with the cashback apps. I thought once you claimed things disappeared from the apps? Mine haven't ! And someone said Shopmium would have blind pig back today. Mine hasn't. Missed that one!

    Another thing. Sorry I said I was confused. CS and CoS have pictures of different flavours but say one claim. Did someone say you can get all three flavours and it counts as one claim please?

    Many apologies for all the questions.

    Morning all

    Coming out of lurkdom for a quick question. The 25% off wine, would that come off the full price of the bottle if it's on offer. I noticed last night some hardy's wine is £6.50 or 2 for £9 making them less than £3 a bottle (I think) if both discounts came off. Or are they excluded from the 25% off?

    Thanks x

    Good morning everyone, last day in Wales for a while, as of to our, other home in France, our son and family, will be left running the family farm.
    Wanted to let you I passed on all your messages to Rhos as there was so many we copied them and emailed so she knew so many people where thinking of her. She was chuffed and said to thank you all and say you have no idea how much the elites suport means to her.
    I also left her a suprise in the fridge , a few mullers, she will be shocked as i am the sort of friend who asks her to get the glitch as its to complicated for me. I am sure you all have one.

    morning all, very dark here

    ta to all of the Muller hunters I got a set of Strawberry rice yesterday, oh is impressed - i used my APG on its final day

    before we set off i checked my Q clicksnappy and it showed that i still had a milk to claim so i got 10 strawberry rice, one cherry corner, milk for work, snack pepperami and 6 Schwartz so £7.01 from Q and another apg for next time plus a nice one from a womble

    i was going to do a 2nd shop but my store only had 7 cherry corners so i abandoned the 1st list

    Did you check the app or on your Quidco account - the app doesn't update when you claim (guess who bought milk after just checking the app even knowing this )
