    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

    But then a thought occurred to me that this Dove and its for fair skins so this might be a good stop gap.

    and then a second thought occurred to me to go and look in the box with the various summer glows and fakes tans and amongst the normal medium to dark or dark ones I found a fair one - possibly from the H&B days so very ancient but worth a try anyway and a good stop gap until a facial one appears somewhere.

    And its stopped me playing on the superdrug website

    If you download Uber on your smartphone apparently you can get your 1st journey free. Both my sisters have done it and I am going to try it when I am in London next week. HTH

We are going from Fenchurch st to Belgrave Sq. Need to renew OH passport and they wont do it by post (he is Malaysian). Will have to take extra bottles of oxygen, incase we are held up in a queue or something. What a palaver.

    maybe it's just my store that have corrected it but they didn't even know the 25% was on until I told them.

    But it's listed the Prosecco as £24 which is £32 less 25% and the Hardys shiraz as £9.75 which is £13 less 25% and I don't think it's done that in the past iyswim

    We haven't had a multibuy and 25% off wine together in ages.

    Looked at Damart for a cardigan for work and saw this - not for work obviously and a tad pricey at £39, but would be nice as a cover-up for the party season and wouldn't distract from the dress beneath:
