    Morning all - our flat roof was shiny this morning, did we have a mild air frost last night....????

    All three cats are still inside and asleep in their beds so no curtains are drawn yet and I am creeping around trying not to disturb them
    so I am going back upstairs to change beds and tidy up so I don't wake them

    Good morning all....

    I've had a lovely weekend away and am now back!

    It has been a challenge to stick to the FO but we have managed it by being very creative with the use of not only the sol vouchers but some compliments vouchers and our lovely DS who very kindly bought us tea on Friday evening.

    The biggest spend of the weekend did go on a cream tea with scones and clotted cream....but I did balance it out by finding the local T and managing deli reduction time to provide us with a meat picking platter with salad and tomatoes for the princely sum of £1.09 for sundays evening meal.

    Was good to catch up with DS ...he's clearly having a ball....the work is hard but he's also playing hard...which I guess in essence is uni life....but he's not sad and has made lots of friends....possibly living his dream amongst a flat of 6 others...

    hope everyone else is well and I've not missed too much...

    Using up freezer meatballs for tea this evening with store cupboard sause and some rtc vegetables that were 30p yesterday so if I go to T today it will only be to get the free cider.

    Have a great day all

    Morning

    Might be old news here but Tesco now sale m&s gift cards ,Amazon and John Lewis and with an extra 75 points per £25 spend, so worth getting in preparation for Christmas also if anyone uses the zeek app they have 3% off the Tesco gift cards ( small amount to some but if you are buying anyway it's still a saving). So buy Tesco gift card to use in Tesco to buy other gift cards

    It's terrible isn't it what a ridiculous amount to need to save, I'm so sorry about your fil.

    I've got a delivery this morning and I've ordered a few 2 for £9 can't remember which ones now, I also used a £6 off £60 so if BM has kicked in that might stop the voucher from working.

    Good morning, work for me today although they seem to be my rest days lately

    Seeing DS so settled and sorted and enjoying his new life does this make things any less difficult?

    Is he back over half term or does it carry on until mid December when they break for Christmas?

    Definitely was a sad day now it's been corrected and does the BM on the discounted price as someone pointed out on HUKD makes the Faustino same price as A after the 25% and then the BM, £5 bottle.

    I have to update my frocky total now as I did go out and get wine in the end as could be long time before we get another double instore discount. I was going to rely that another 25% off nearer xmas a few would glitch with BM but from what I read here and over on HUKD doesn't look like it's happening.

    I did two wine purchases last evening at around 7:30pm...Hardy's Merlot/Chardonnay...It worked fine...Thank you to the OP....stocked up for Xmas...
    Originally posted by marmitelovemehateme
    Yes those two wines will work ok as they do not rely on brand matching for the bigger discount. It is the 25% off and then the 2 for £9 offer for them.

    It's the ones like Faustino that are £7.50 a bottle in Ts and £5 in As, used to BM first and give £2.50 discount and then take the 25% discount off the £7.50 too. This is no longer working as it is taking the 25% off first and then BM the lower price to As so a very small BM and in fact making it same price as As.

    Just to say I have not tried this myself only from what hippychicky posted yesterday that it didn't work with the couple of branded wines she bought and also what I have read on various parts of HUKD that were promoting the 25% off yesterday.

    Hi
    I think people are getting confused re the wine.
    The double discount is still working.
    The brand guarantee did not work for me yesterday because Tesco have found a way to compare the reduced price of the wine and not the full price as we have had previously.
    So they would only compare the 25% off price of the wine against morries, and that is IF they pick the morries price up from the website at all.
    Happy to be corrected

    Originally posted by hippychicky
    That's the way I see it too, no idea when Morries prices/offers get picked up I don't take enough notice. Savvy would know.

    But as you say it will only match the discounted price now so probably just make it the same price as Morries anyway.

    Well it's not a good morning here.

    Our bin collections changed from beginning of October to alternate weeks for our rubbish and recycling bins. So last week was our recycling and this week should have been our rubbish bin.

    I went round house yesterday evening and emptied all the bins inside and told Mr TS who always puts the bins out, but he forgot and by the time I took DD to work they had already been.

    It is only a small bin and is now full and not being emptied for another 2 weeks now.
