    If you need to locate a particular item in T....find a member of staff of management level/team leader/section leader....they usually wear the navy blue jackets/own clothes....ask them if they have the T app on their mobile to locate an item in store. They can then check their phone, will tell you if they stock the item, and if they do, they will tell you what aisle number the product is located..(they usually take you to the product).
    I find this is a really useful service....Saves a lot of time

    Anyway, on a happier note, really proud of my DD and her boyfriend. They are moving to Yorkshire on Thursday and they both already have jobs

    They are living with his mum for a while to let them save, they will save for a couple of years to get a deposit together then buy a house. Down here they would not stand a chance, even if they were living cheaply with us it they would need at least £30 grand to get a deposit, and that is the bare minimum.

    Anyway, evening to my Elite friends

    I've updated my sig again. Not been out the house for two days and nothing spent, so added a couple of NSDs to my total

    Spent last 24 hours or so, setting up a DVD Buy it Now Sale for one of my Romanian rescuers I support. Local rescue gave me two big boxes of them as we had so many in the charity shop, so I've put 120 of them up for £1-£1.50 each and sold 12 already, an hour after setting up page We are always looking for other ways to raise money, other than our regular raffles/auctions, so thought this would bring a bit in

    DS arrived home last night for a couple of days He's been hard at work sorting out all our technical issues. Downloaded this app for me ........Vivino and I'm loving it.

    You take a photo of the label or input the name of your wine and you get a score out of 5. Here is the score of the Hardys I bought earlier.

    DS reckons that there's not many above the 4 mark and he's right. We only have one in the house and it's the boxed Coop Moet champagne we got a few years back. It came out at 4.1.

    Interested to see if anyone has anything higher
