    HOW MUCH?

    It's quite a few years since we were there but honestly the prices are eye watering.

    Is there anywhere to find discounts?

    Morning folks

    Still catching up on yesterday's goings on but a bit pushed for time this morning so it might take a while

    I need the Elite help please. I need to find the cheapest way for some friends to come to bristol from stockport by train on 24th or 25th March and return on 26th March. So far it's looking at about £150

    I'll say thank you now but will be checking back in later

    Edit - I found megabus return from Manchester for around £15 return so have passed the info on

    morning all

    In my B & M yesterday I got something very similar to this for 39p

    https://uk.iherb.com/pr/drogheria-alimentari-grey-brittany-sea-salt-mill-2-46-oz-70-g/50712

    If you make nice foodie hampers for the gourmets and cooks in your life eg for Mothers day, Birthdays, Christmas etc - collecting together all of your free and nearly free cashback items then this salt would be a fabulous addition and it has a story

    We're okayish this morning, had a tearful phone call with DD yesterday so that probably helped.

    We have to look at it positively, he was in pain and bed ridden, and I think he had given up on life, so it is better this way than having a shell of him hanging on. It just leaves a gaping gap in our lives.
