    Good Afternoon from the 1st class coach on a virgin pendolino train from Edinburgh to Crewe, get me . Not very mse but very nice none the less. I could get used to this Nellie lol.

    My first time in first class and hopefully not the last if the price is right. I had a ticket for a normal coach but realised I wouldn t get back to Wrexham till almost 10 which makes it an extra long day travelling so I looked for alternatives and saw this with £76 off

    Ok so somehow my travel money exchange didn't go quite to plan.

    Yes I am impressed with exchange rate and speed of delivery but I was sure I had clicked on mixed notes, went back to check and my order says no preference so I have loads of $100 CAD notes for DD and only 1 x $10 and 1 x $50

    Please does anyone know if I took a chance and visited a bureau de change whether one would be kind enough to change a couple into smaller denominations or is that a no go?

    Afternoon Elite

    Stayed up all night after more stress over Emily as M DID report the bite to the police, so looking forward to giving them a statement on what really happened as she has told them that she did nothing to provocate the dog grr. Concentrating on keeping Emily safe - which we have achieved hopefully, but I can't give details. Bottle of cheap but delicious bottle of red wine gave me such weird dreams when I did sleep this morning

    Top tip for Waities. Have 2 cards ( one in your first christian and one in 2nd ). Use card no 1 for most of your shopping. Use 2nd sporadically and you will get conditional spends on that one that can be used with the 1st card

    Codes can be entered up to 31/12/17 so you have plenty of time to allow a muggle at least a sporting chance of claiming their own code

    It is me, Mr Slow, again.
    Just checked my PAG for beens and pot noddle which I paid 75p for, compares at 50p, an offer from tomorrow, 2 for £1, so how do I find it if other way round, as in cheap today but expensive tomorrow? As for example xxxx costs £1 today but goes to £2 tomorrow and the £1 compares favourably, as in £1 at Tosser, so probably a PAG for £2 vs £1, PAG 0f £1.10 on £1 spend?
    How can we check? A wander down this aisles looking at prices and scanning on App? May have a stroll through Sada if that is the case
    Sorry, just looked at PAG again, it has taken pot noddle at 50p each. 75p on SEL and App is 2 for £1.50. Tottaly confusing LOL


    But knowing me, probably a (BIG) flaw in my thinking.

    Just thinking out loud.....the walkers offer....I recall when they did the £3 lunch promotion, people buying the boxes of walkers from HB? or somewhere similar....wonder if this might be worthwhile with this promo, and if the boxes are on offer?
