    Last couple of days I felt like i've been punched in the jaw, couldn't fathom what it was as it affecting the lower right canine. Turns out my wisdom tooth is coming through and looks like this tooth is being squeezed inwards. Wisdom teeth have caused me nothing but trouble - small mouth you see

    Raining here so been having a lazy weekend.

    Dam you M&S. Still no email saying to collect my order yet. I ordered a few days ago, so thought it would be ready to collect by Sunday. Infact Im sure I saw somewhere that it should be ready by 12MD Sunday. But to wait for email
    Will just have to go to sains and play bingo instead . Get the M&S another day

    Well back from sains and i did 3 shops but so so angry On th way in went CS to have points added and she was jsut refusing a lady infront, i said i want to do the same
    She reckons you had to add on next shop that why there was a date on them.
    I said all coupons have dates! no these have dates so you can on next shop.
    I said does NOT say that on website, other lady said you need to read your own t&c before trading standards get involved
    Anyway she didnt either of ours
    Went shopping went ss and of course the big ones dont scan on there
    SA said you have to go CS i told her what happened and she said well she wont be giving me a lift then anymore as sent loads up there i said she was jumped up and she agreed
    Top and tail she sent a SA with me to CS and she STILL REFUSED!
    I then got t&c up on phone and she rang manager and was told to put them through this once so i gve her 1 x5000 and 2 x 2000
    I will contact nectar though i sstill have 2000 to put on and have £138.xx on nectar now
