    Poor Emily couldn't wait any longer so I found a lovely bright pink doggie coat for her and we went for a 15 minute walk up our street and next one. Plenty of grassy areas for her there. Both her coat and my fleece now in tumbler as it was stick chucking it down. Oh I had forgotten the joys of dog walks in the rain

    ta for this, probally try Morribobs later.

    It did though make me realise that my clicksnappy submissions from last week have not even tracked yet so I've emailed them with photos. and the ID numbers - they should at least have been tracking by now.
    I emailed the other one on Friday as I could not even get an ID number after 2 attempts, no reply yet
    My Quidco purchase for superdrug on Friday afternoon tracked within minites

    Has anyone managed to find the Real Handful snacks yet in sainsbobs and if so whereabouts? Probably in the same region as the free drinks I could never find

    Wonderful to just let them get on with it. Let them take on all decisions and just sit back and walk into a lovely 'new' home when you get back in. So glad you don't have the worry of chasing things up as you just don't need this. What about exOH, as he was moving back in to his own space with you soon and had given notice where he . Does this still fit in with the timescale of reapirs?

    Oh that's brilliant but can you remove " How much sex is enough ?" From the top right. I don't want our Poppy to feel inadequate
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly
    That's the first thing I noticed when I saw the picture of the cover - I always seem to notice the things in smaller print and ignore the big mast strapline - I didn't notice the huge text at first. Love - who wants that?

    To be fair, the word "sex" is in white and jumps out (or it did for me, which is not necessarily a bad thing and I'm not complaining) as if it has a bell sounding loudly and red flashing lights either side of it.

    Just, too much sex. Or, alternatively, not enough.

    How do you remove it anyway? Do you mean put area of empty space there? Well, that won't work, since I now already know what was there before that.

    Viking confirmed to nectar that my gift card purchase didn't qualify for 3,000 points



    But nectar have added them anyway as a gesture of goodwill


    I only sent one polite message via fb so it's worth dropping them a line and seeing what happens
