    It looks like we will have to throw ourselves on the mercy of the Nectar customer services team.

    My conversation ended tonight with Nectar intending to "speak" to Viking tomorrow.

    Sorry AJ...I didn't have the time to reply this morning but wanted to say......ENJOY

    I know it's really difficult at first but think of the positives...... your shower will stay cleaner, your bills will fall and the place will be tidier. It used to amaze me, how when we came back after being out a while, everything was still as you left it Meals are easier to plan too and shopping less demanding. Make the most of it

    On a positive note, I've bought some goodies for the fridge and I now know they'll be there tomorrow . They'll still be there on Saturday and they'll be gone on Sunday as I'll have them for my tea

    Seriously though, I know exactly what I'm going to miss. Or not. A class example is to be told he's fed up with gravy dinners he'll cook for himself, that's fine son. Now he's a very good chef, don't get me wrong but I start to hear moaning that there's not enough tea for him and what is it he's missing out on I hear you ask. Liver and onions with mash and fried onions and GRAVY

    Quite funny, one positive that came out of DD moving out is that she suddenly found out how much sugar she and her fianc!e got through, I used to have to buy a bag a week, now I buy maybe two or three a year And DD has gone from having 5 (yes 5!!) spoons of sugar in her coffee to none, and her fianc!e now has sweeteners!!

    Right, I've been hand sewing curtains as haven't got a sewing machine, can't use one my hands are stiff and painful, I'm tired and off to bed.

    Yes Boots. The Fit Me one at £5.99.

    I picked up the wrong one. I thought it was the £8.99 one
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly

    - I think Ive got 100 points for collection make up ...

    Boots sent me a mailing with points offers similar to the ones on my app. Ive used the free vits one via my card bit will the free vits paper version scan?

    Sharpies unavailable for my C&C this afternoon. Which goes to prove I'm better at hide and seek than Sada.

    With permission, I'm having a lie in tomorrow so won't be doing an early sharpie check. I'm sure Hillbern's hubby or some other kind Elite will do the deed.

    Hubby not at work tomorrow, so wont be able to get to A til 10 at the earliest, so if anyone else able to do that would be great..but I will pop in as early as I can and let you know.

    something strange in my A DH was in there at 7.30am today 3 left on shelf but he couldn't play games as there were several SA milling around and he was the only customer.
    I had email at 11am saying my order had been picked and was ready for HD (tonight between 8pm-10pm) and only 5 sharpies..
    DH popped in on way home from work for the Guinness but to no avail, but there on the shelf were the 3 that were there this morning.....Strange

    Good Morning all.

    Morning, start of the weekend Finally had the courage to book tickets to see ds1 in Australia at Christmas. That amount of money hurts but well spent as I won't have seen him for nearly four years.
    Thoughts to all going through a traumatic time, hope things get better.
    Enjoy the weekend whatever you are doing

    TM, thought of Mr TM when I read this on 10 Ways, and anyone else who does outdoor sports.

    '"hey guys, not sure if you are already aware but a lot of outdoor companies are looking for 'ambassadors' to flog their stuff all over social media. Now we all know the likelihood of getting that role is next to nil unless you've climbed K2 5 times blindfolded... but they often give you money off just for applying! I applied to Sherpa Adventure Gear a while ago and they gave me 20% off their site. My Mum did the same with Pactimo and got 20% off cycling gear." - Thanks to George

    Also, worth doing this with lots of other brands, if you can offer them something in return they often willing to listen/send something out'

    Maybe worth a shot

    It will be worth every penny I feel the emotional tug with my two after a few weeks....so I can imagine how excited you must feel. I've just been thinking how quickly the year is going, so Christmas will be here before you know it....you will enjoy the planning and preparation. Wonderful
