    Just home from a quick Sada shop....As expected the San Miguel has worked at the checkout..Still showing 3 for £10.......£30 minus £10......Will have the results later today....I am about to leave for Wales..The land of song and lots and lots of sheep....I love em...And when the Welsh have finished with them they send them to the English to eat....

    On the subject of meat my Sada were reducing all of the gammon joints. smoked/unsmoked...marked up at £4 kilo...Reducing them to under £2 kilo........£12 plus joints reduced to £6..... I don't think it is a national thing as I asked why....The guy said that it was because they had too many....I can now say....They have quite a few less.........
    Freezer is heaving with them.....Ive got weights holding down the lid....

    Taking a couple to my daughter who I am sure will put them to good use....On that note...Ta taa for now......Catcha all laters....
    OMG, I'm rich! Silver in the hair, Gold in the teeff, Crystals in the Kidney, Sugar in the blood, Lead in the butt, Iron in the arteries and an inexhaustible supply of natural gas! I never thought I would accumulate such wealth!!

    You have never seen me dash out so quick when I saw this reported on hukd as knew my local had loads last week. My cup of tea is still on the side.

    Can confirm the gardenia and peach ate 15p, only the freesia was really cheap last week at 37p none here to see if RTC further.

    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.
