    How much roughly would an apg be if I got 10 of each of the following

    1x
    Del Monte Pineapple Chunks in Juice (435g) £1.00 £0.80
    1x Del Monte Sliced Pineapple in Juice (435g) £1.00 £0.80
    2x Del Monte Peach Slices in Juice (415g) £2.00 £1.60
    Would it be about £6.50?

    Interesting day.

    First off, went to The Range to try to get some wallpaper but couldn't find what I wanted, but then went past some decent seeming plastic coated fabric that will be perfect. So now we have to figure out how to hang it

    And then I had an excellent result.

    A few weeks ago I bought an Evergreen Easy Spreader plus, used it to put lawn sand on my lawn, then found the adjuster would not work. Contacted Scotts (they make them) to find out if there was anything I could do about it, fairly sure it was down to using it for lawnsand. To cut a long story short it turned out that their head office is just about 3 miles from us, got a phone call while I was at The Range asking if someone could pop round to look at it this afternoon, along she came, concluded that the adjustment thingy would not adjust, went out to the car and came back with a far better one, so I ended up getting the spreader I really wanted for the price I wanted to pay
    What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare

    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.
