    CoS is a better app as it is easier to see when you have claimed, whereas CS you have to check on the website which is a faff.

    Morning all, hope everyone is well.

    Just been for a play at Sainsbobs, was so much fun. My petrol station excluded but

    6 shops -
    £29.40 worth of shopping.
    £26.50 worth of clothing including pair of trainers ( 2 tops as Xmas gifts & 2 for me ) . All half price so actually £53.00 of clothing.
    A chalkboard for my kitchen.

    After extra points its total cost was £28.72 & £2.00 back on cb sites also.

    I'm well chuffed. Want to play again now xx

    Good morning Elite

    Happy petrol filling and Mr S shopping to those taking part . I don't have a Mr S close enough to me so am not taking part. I love reading of your great results though. Even those who made errors in his workings out

    It's an over cast day so plans to change beds today and do washing have been put off. Beds are changed and bedding in laundry basket awaiting a suitable wash day

    NSD for me, dh back on Dukan diet for a few weeks, he's doing quiet well on it. So did I last time but it takes me weeks to get motivated sufficiently to get started . Heaven knows I could do with losing several lbs or a stone or two.

    Talking of overweight, the extra layers of fat is supposed to keep us warm. So why am I so bloody cold? or is it imagination?

    Have a great day shopping or whatever you are doing. I'm dog sitting again today . Question for doggie people. Are all Jack Russell's greedy and wolf their food down so quickly?
    There's no place like home
