    Hi. I have a £5 off £50 for W and following what all you experts are working out for the fairy etc. You're all so clever at this. I'm just confused when you scan the coupon. Won't the total be too low after the 3 for £10 and pyo discount comes off? Does that make sense?

    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

    I'm grumpy as Mr TS is watching something else and won't let me watch Junior Doctors tonight.

    DD has just text to say her friend that graduated last year is on it.

    I wonder how it is making her feel, not sure whether it's a good idea or not.

    Is there a chance it mgiht be of use for this? I assumed it was just points for purchases.
