    Please can I ask has anyone found anything worth using this weeks Marks Sparks offers on

    £5 for jumper and cardigans
    £5 off shoes and boots

    OH has the same for mens jumpers

    All its done is make me think how expensive Marks is, not just for jumpers and cardigans and then go and evaluate the winter clothing stocks - so actually its had the opposite effect in making me not want to buy anything at all from Marks, even the sale items

    Morning all - Wouldn't dash and buy a copy of the Daily Mail for the Marmite - my local Iceland which is a large one only had 8 jars and they had gone within 10 mins.

    Hope you all get loads of Nectar Points today x

    Morning, the year 1, 2's & 3's are being so good and amusing when we give them their flu spray. We learn a lot about your family even though we don't ask about it. They just come out with some random things about home life The sad thing is is that so many of them don't know their birthday or where they live, some not even their surname, not that we say surname. Shockingly even the high school children are foxed by that word
    Have a good weekend

In this day and age I would have thought they would know where they live and surname. Pulls at the heart strings somewhat too, I always thought it was a party trick to get your children to reel off their address at least. Poor kids.
