    Got there in the end! I usually place an order for early on each account, upon getting the update, I then place the order again. Later on go to locker and collect all 4 orders.

    Bubbs my dad had huge problems with the pricking tests - it took him a while to work out that it worked better if he used the side of his finger at the top instead of the pad bit - I don't know which part you're trying from but it might be useful x

Also be careful they don't link your accounts, which I believe some people have experienced on here.

    I've used the Currency Club a few times in the past. Rates have always been very competitive and the service has always been good, can't vouch for any others though.

I don't do online banking so not sure if bank transfer will be possible. Their rate for the amount I want to exchange is pretty favourable at the moment.

    EDIT: I have found it it's 0.25%

    I use bank transfer when I do it which doesn't attract a fee. You can always arrange a bank transfer in your bank branch if you don't do online banking.

    I told a little fib earlier. I did manage to dip into the thread earlier at work as I was trying to see if the crisps worked.

    I read a full page from last Thursday before I realised

    Unsurprisingly, there were no crisp shops

    Back from DD's where things are moving on quickly and it's getting quite exciting - basically it's the contents of 2 homes going into one, so there's going to be a lot of surplus to attend to and lots of sifting and sorting to be done.

    Went to T on the way, all Easter stock sold out, got DD's shopping and had a coupon so got my milk and bread for free.

    Snap, I'm glad your Dad can stay at home. Hope he gets better soon.

    Morning.

    Ending today, 3 for £20 beers

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/820753_2057714.html

    Best comparison I can see for buying 3 is the San Miguel v Sainsbobs. £30 v £27. £4.77 each.

    Other comparisons would have to be bought in 6s.
    Boddies v Tesco 2 for £16
    Strongbow v Morries 2 for £16
    Bud v Morries 2 for £16


    6 for £25 wines

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/818481_2098373.html

    I cant find any comparisons where Asda isn’t already the cheapest
    As it's 4.00 am I could have missed one so please feel free to check


    Del Monte tinned fruit £1 each or 2 for £1.50

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle/661172_1791030.html

    Peach slices in syrup and juice, and Pineapple slices and chunks should compare to Sainsbobs 80p. 47p each.


    Kinder Surprise Chocolate Egg 77p each or 3 for £2.00.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?Query=kinder%20eggs

    Should compare to 65p in Sainsbobs. 48p each.


    Kellogg’s Crunch Nut 2 for £5.00 and Grace Soups Asda already cheapest and ‘I am Supergrains’ appears only to be sold in Asda.
    Asda pickled onions/beetroot/red cabbage - very small apg on red cabbage and even smaller apg on couple of the onions. Not enough to do a shop for (if they do compare)


    Check offer comes off at till/price they scan through at in case price drops later and don't shop too early - not exactly sure of what time is too early though

    Now that my click snap receipts have all tracked on Quidco, how long does it usually take before the cash can be withdrawn ? I thought it would be like cos and be payable straight away but it seems more like tab. I would appreciate any advice please.

    Thanks izzey unfortunately there are no beers there that dh would be interested in. The crisps are still not showing any multis on A website, not sure if that means anything.

    Having a trip to waities on Thursday and I was wondering if there were any fabulous offers on there at the moment.

    We've had plenty of bird activity in the garden, lots of birds making lots of nests, why suddenly this year I really don't know because nothing has changed. Wrens have made nests in two boxes, blue Tits in one and a blackbird made a nest in the bay tree which had three eggs in it. She would fly off every morning when i went to peg the washing out which gave me a chance for a quick look anyway one day she didnt fly off but i could see she wasn't on the nest and when I looked the eggs were gone. We had a Magpie nest three gardens down which has been mobbed by a parliament of crows who have now moved in. We'll be lucky if any birds stay.
    Anyway the blackbird has now starting making a nest right outside the back door which will be interesting. Dh was having a look last night when he said so is the other nest empty still I followed him down the garden and watched him saying, I can't see it. So I pointed to where it was and when I looked in I said I cannot believe my eyes there were three tiny blue eggs in there, it was only when I realised dh was nearly on the floor with laughing that they were tiny Easter eggs and he had put them there.......planning my revenge as we speak.........
