    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Blimey, you lot have been busy

    I'm just about to jump into the shower before I open a bottle of red, put fresh inks into printer then settle for the evening .

    I've got several pages to read to catchup again, I wonder if SSM managed her mammoth list or is she still shopping

    Back in a little while, just need a coffee before I begin my evening

    Managed to just about get £10 petrol into the car so no chocolate required Got 1000 points
    Then 2 shops in Sains. Got lots of mars bars for OH. Not doing shopping for me after seeing the rat yesterday
    500 points x 2. Not as good as yesterday
    Will try again tomorrow

    Great fun this, seeing what others got. Hope Sains do it again soon

    If memory serves the points total doesn't properly update until the next day so when you shop it tends to show you the total earned on that shop plus your starting total for the day
