    Mr TS only filled his car up end of last week, I took his car last time but he doesn't do that many miles so not sure if I would get a tenner in or not. And it's not like the petrol station is on our doorstep.

    Can't believe how many points I have now, I have gone well into 5 figures.

    My SA at T was nice the other day - I warned him I had coupons and he just laughed and said that sounded ominous and were they going to end up paying me...

    He gave me one of his sweets. Which I accepted.

    Don't blame you - you'd think they'd have had a deal with Marmite too, to make sure they were well-stocked well in advance of all this.

    I saw a Mail the other day with no number on the back - just a blank space where it should have been.

    Have you seen the bulb offer? Postage is pricey though at nearly £6...

    If your cats eat felix pouches there are some special boxes with a free pouch if treats in it (states on box) inside however there is also 70p of a box of pouches and 30p off cat treats, the boxes are 2 for £5 in both asda and tesco so go well with mullers xx

    Good Evening


    Eventually got here. Had to avoid so many roads with problems, so cut across country to avoid M40, M25 & A3
    But took for ever when you're sat in back seat with a Tempur pillow & feeling sleepy

    So got my BIL to dig out his Nectar card & stopped at S in Shrewsbury - filled up (I know) - 2000 points
    Need him to understand he could of done it several times but he was so chuffed with the 2000 points

    Went to IKEA to buy my Kivik sofa - didn't like it once I'd sat in it So pleased I could try them out. Rather taken with a red chenille Stocksund one instead

    Evening Elite friends

    Off to update my sig with a net spend of £7.44 for some whoopsied fruit and veg (about 60% off), and things for QuidcoCS. i got 6 Hipp with cashback items and as they only had 3 flavours I could use for comparison, I was looking for extra fillers, thropwing a back of Kettles Veg Chrisps into trollwy ..... I though, £1.50 sounded expensive enough not to be a problem (ignoring the fact I should have got non-branded item - I had it the other way round in my silly head) and they compared to £2.48 so I lost 98p, still £2.54 wasn't a back BG. I get the Hipp for a friend who is struggling financially at moment, by the way, and these and the Little Dishes are helping her so much

    No Sainsbury garage anywhere near me, and my nearest store is small and out of my way, so never really go there, so no extra points for me But am enjoying seeing all the points being awarded

    Off to check.
