    So 1,000 pts = £5

    So 60,000 = 60 x £5 = £300

    Impressed

    Felt as if I was in a parallel universe in S this morning. Went in with vouchers which worked together and gave me 1000 points when I spent £20 -- found a lovely jumper in my colours which definitely fits! Voucher for 1000 points so if I can double up, that will be free. Also 200 extra points wys £10. Would be rude not to go in again...

    Then to petrol. Spent £40. Ended up with another 5,500 points.

    So I spent £60 and got 7,500 points, plus bonus points for swiping the right number of times should happen. Even if I don't manage to double up, that is not to be sneezed at! Does S know what it is doing?!

    Both Blind Pig and Optiwell show on the website that I can claim again on CS. Very odd but I am not complaining! I agree it is a faff!

    Most muggles will just buy as normal and not break up their shop, forget to add to their card or then not spend them anyway. So a calculated risk really.

    Good Afternoon


    Just come in from tortoise roll call
    You would think they would be considering hibernation now?
    No... Usually they have separate gardens to avoid any shenanigans involving pregnancies...
    But as they are now together in the large greenhouse as the next step towards hibernation. They are at it no sleepy males

    I did order from the last link a few days before I went on hols but despite a dispatch note it still hasn't arrived and the listing has been changed since it went up - it did say UK seller and dispatch but now says coming from China and with a Royal Mail tracking code that means jeff all. I shall be having words with eBay

    Re the speak out game, been trying for ages to get uk stock but had to turn to the bay to get one with a 3 week lead time from china. Alas it was a fake, even had the cheek to put Hasbro in the title, my foot - it was cheap tat. Had to report the seller as didn't want anyone giving a game to a child for Crimbo which didn't meet uk trading standards especially as those guards have to go in the mouth. Never had to do that before but feel I can sleep sounder now for speaking up

    Texted Sister on Operation Wimborne - all going well

    Chaotic until they left this morning, 10002345 worries that were verbalised - like a puncture, avoiding the motorway, rest stops, a torch, drinks, why was the Carer late? today of all days...

    Mum & I ended up showering Dad ourselves - which was difficult for me as I did not want to see my Dad with no clothes on
