    Muggle questions here, sorry. (I'm trying to do shopping lists for tomorrow.)

    I'm going to T to use up some Hipp vouchers. Do I aim for a BM and hope 6 compares to T, giving me £2 off the rest of my shopping? Or do I just 'buy' them for the food bank please?

    Are we buying LIttle Dish in A v S? And why is three the magic number please?

    Anything else which should be on my shopping list? I missed the soup vouchers and the recycling went today!

    I'd like to know this too please. I have a sense that it is ages since they did a double up -- can anyone remember when it was please? I am hoarding my points for it and have quite a few with all the extra offers they keep having for things I do anyway like Virgin trains. And when they tell me to swipe several times, I do one item at a time on the ss tills!

    Oh can you double up for virgin trains?

    I suppose the nectar promotion is working!

    I'm happy, total spend 23.50 for both, 500 + 2000 points, So my clothes came with £25 of prosecco, hopefully.

  • Who do you think came out best in the Corbyn v May battle tonight?

  • Clever by Paxman; subtly testing out "strong & stable" by focusing on u-turns on Brexit view, social care, self employed tax & election date

  • Ps sadly i got in too late to have seen Corbyn, hence why no comment on his performance
