    I am wondering about that as well - mine stopped working after I get a leggings and vest order.

    Is anyone still playing the game, ordering vests online because they still have the discount?

    If so pm me - I suspect someone still is but does not want to say how many vests they have accumulated incase Marks starts
    in-vesting-ting them

    I image they are making a vast vest pile ready for car booting

    Just thought I haven't actually collected any orders yet though. Wonder if that makes a difference. Not gone mad either. Just the different colours have been in stock different days when I have happened to be around...

    Afternoon all!

    Just whizzing in and out as I'm working my lunch so I can finish early, in time for Bella tonight

    I'd skimmed and assumed this was a BG thing, but if it's not, then is it just 'buy in 6s' and nothing else required?

    It was interesting, the difference in packing. I got the same item twice (diff sizes) and ordered on same day.

    One came folded in half complete with hanger.

    The other came folded in 4 without hanger.

    Different packers I guess.

    No idea sorry as I got ballerina slippers and paid £1 but then I couldn't use it again.

    Which makes me think - both my offers stopped working for me once I paid over some actual money. So I'm wondering if getting things for free keeps it alive and active as it's not registering any spend?

    Worth bearing in mind for next time.

    I'm up for frugal October....£50-£60 for 3 of us

    1st 2nd Oct Current spend - £6.32......3rd Oct - £1.78 = £8.10 6th Oct £2.64 = £10.74 10th Oct£5.35 = £16.09 11thOct£6.55 =£22.64 15THOct £4.56 = £27.23 17th OCT £7.71 =£34.94 20th Oct £1.72 = £36.66

    Another lazy morning here

    Glad Rhos is alright & in the loop

    Feeling glum as Dad has had another mini stroke This time a Dr was called & he has to have a CT scan The worrying bit is it a bleed one or a clot?
    Clot would be better as blood can be thinned. He also has blood cancer so blood has to be monitored ...

    So I'm away with my gloomy thoughts at the moment

    Wouldn't work for a second leggings order.
    Fleece, got first order free, money off second order then couldn't use again - I just can't work it out.

    We are planning on going to London this Wednesday. I installed the uber app on my iPhone ages ago but never used it yet. Do you think I would still be able to claim the 2 up to £10 rides via the 02 app. Or perhaps use Uber for one free ride and then the up to £10 ride for the return journey. 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.
    He was going to drive there, but with the tower bridge now shut, he says traffic will be more awful than ever.

    tia of your answers

    To be honest I don't think a £10 fare would cover it one way, that area has been a nightmare since they shut one lane for that supercycle highway Getting into town is the easy part, getting out takes agggges. I know there is pay and display parking around the square itself. If you have a blue badge, these are the restrictions in Westminster: https://www.westminster.gov.uk/where-you-can-park-disabled-badge. You're also exempt from paying the congestion charge with a blue badge, but you have to apply for it first: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/congestion-charge/discounts-and-exemptions

    I don't know what area you're traveling from but if driving, I would consider taking the north circ to the A40 and driving down via Shepherd's Bush or down via Paddington and skirting Baywater.

    Hope that helps and hello

    I didn't even get to finish my Prosecco before we went to Turkey as DD2 knocked it over me. I must have stunk of booze on the flight. I did my best with deodorant wipes to make myself smell better.
