    I messed up with a couple of Quavers in a. vT shop too . It looks like while the £1 in T offer ended and the old price was retained in the APG for some crisps, for these they were full price and were just going to £1.

    Ah well, they will be eaten.

    Good morning all, glorious sunshine here again.

    Still waiting for the downpour we need, but the fire risk locally has been downgraded.

    It is rather strange, so many people saying the fires must have been started intentionally because it has not been hot enough or dry enough for fires. Sorry, but those people are mad, or have not been out for a walk on the land. It is bone dry, long standing puddles (more like lakes) that we have been avoiding for literally years (clay land so only way they really go is evaporation) are gone. All it takes is a spark off a piece of dropped glass or chewing gum foil, or a cigarette thrown out of a car window.

    Trip to Sainsbobs waste of time.

    No further reductions on Easter stuff, 5x box cream eggs still 90p, individual cream eggs 40p (robbers), Lindor, Galaxy and Cadbury's Caramel small eggs still 25p. It's not a big store but is still classed as a supermarket, not a local, so don't know where SA got information.
    I did get some things scanned at till, just to check sels were correct

    I had forgotten how bad the rush hour traffic is ... just glad I don't have to travel in it any more

    I don't think anyone brewed up this morning .... I couldn't as I was in rush after grabbing a couple more hours sleep, but I don't think anyone would want my brews anyway ... Mr B says they are awful lol

    Thanks issey. The 10 packs of Stella are 3 for £21 in Morrisons on msm and morries.com, so maybe a £27 v £21 comparison for a £8.10 apg. £11.90 for 30 cans sounds pretty good to me!
