    Just had a search for my wardrobe & found a new floral top I bought for old Boss's son's wedding that I never went too

    Tried it on & it's perfect, white with a lovely pastel pansies print in a long line length, wear with cropped leggings & sandals

    Fingers crossed the weather will be like today, I can walk the grounds & take in the view over the Estuary

    Something for us all to look forward too ♥

    Good morning all...

    Quick question for the other Tassimo owners....how long do the pods stay ok after useby dates?

    I've found a box of multiple packs that I must have ordered last year...they now have impending usebys....the milk based ones we will try and use quickly,but the others that are just different versions of the coffees...how long past the useby are they still reasonably tasty?

    have you seen the currency rates this morning

    I took the plunge and ordered DDs Canadian dollars last night.

    Thankfully ordered quite late so would only have got about 5 CAD more if ordered this morning. I dare not leave it any later as want to give time if there is a problem with delivery. I had read in the news yesterday the pound had fallen after the election announcement but was watching the rate go up all day thought it might drop significantly over night.

    I guess the rates have risen across the board?

    Bit of a leap of faith for me ordering currency online but thanks to everyone who helped me, I did nervously hit the pay button. I went with currency club in the end as was the best rate for the amount I wanted even with the debit card fee. Was worth paying it to not need a trip into town, parking etc.

    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

    DD has even drunk the ones with creamers in couple of months OOD. I had bought a load of medium roast ones RTC over a year ago might even have been 2 years and they were fine well over 6 months past, as DD decided she didn't like them so as there were so many packs I gave them to her aunt before Christmas, and she said they were still ok.

    DD will probably be drinking next lot OOD too as I forgot to take more up to her for her last couple of weeks and then being in Canada 2 months I bet some will be past date by time she gets back.

    I don't drink coffee...

    I dont really drink coffee either...sometimes I have a latte but thats about it....DS and OH are the coffee drinkers....but I think even DS is becoming a teapot as he didn't take the tassimo machine to uni with him and seems to forget it's here when he's home...

    There are a couple of hot chocolate packs that expire middle May so I will sit in the garden with them in the evenings just to use them up.

    I think DD still has a Suchards left as she prefers the Cadburys ones, I reckon that will be a year OOD, I best try use them up while she is away and the machine is here.

    I can just about suffer an iced coffee, remember those we got free with vouchers couple years back, I could drink them but warm it up and . But you could give me a slice of coffee cake and I love it.

    Expected to see some Easter egg bargains over there but none. I think lots of stores got stock control about right this year. Not good for us though...

    I don't go to As much but my little local had loads of the single creme eggs left on Monday, 25p each not good enough for me so if anyone notices when they go down again please shout.

    Morning all, so cold outside but I am going to make porridge and venture out in a woolly hat

    Marks sparks - if anyone has had the £5 off dresses offer then today is the last day - 4.5% on topcash if anyone still uses it (I did my order via Quidco, tracked straight away and then put in a claim to match the higher amount).
    Just spotted a Shard Print Frill Vest Dress for £15 in blue which looks like it might be useful over its matching swimsuit and a Parrot Print Woven Vest Dress for £15 which also has matching swimwear - I wish I had seen this before I ordered the one I did
    I now have just offer the required number of points needed to be on the invite list for the next exciting Marks event - cant wait

    Sainsburys mycoupons - my offers all have 20/04 expiry date so Friday seems to be the date for new offers

    Nectar - I have quite a few expiring offers so hopefully tomorrow there will be a nice new selection of offers.
    The scan x number of times and get x number of bonus points offers - seems to be no longer giving me the dial with how far along I am

    Greenjim - seems to be a repeat of last weeks offers which is not a bad thing. I've got Lurpak butter which is on offer for £1.50 so after the cashback its the same price as standard butter - better than nothing.

    Good morning all...

    Quick question for the other Tassimo owners....how long do the pods stay ok after useby dates?

    I've found a box of multiple packs that I must have ordered last year...they now have impending usebys....the milk based ones we will try and use quickly,but the others that are just different versions of the coffees...how long past the useby are they still reasonably tasty?

    In waities they had compressed toilet rolls, £3.45 for 16. a bit infuriating as they dont unroll on the holder just quite as smoothly as normal ones after you have straitened them, but a good price.

    Back from A with beer....... paid with the £25.00 APG. Only a small stewards enquiry, and shopping was free.If the glitch doesn't work, i have at least used it up!

    Lots of Easter craft supplies reduced to 10p. Got some craft straw for my DT class to make scarecrows next half term and a pink bucket for 20p Who can resist a pink bucket?!

    I have achieved the 40 items decluttered for Lent, and have split them between DF and School. I have a bag and a box of dubious quality charity stuff in the car to be delivered to the CS when I go to collect DS2 from revision class. Want to eBay, but I will be strong and type assignment for an hour.
