    Moc for Iams won't print from a mobile or a tablet, has to be a laptop or desktop. HTH

    Wands and 4 CW's £1.40 v £1.20 makes 5 cost 68p
    Wands and 2 chews and 2 CW's makes 5 cost 52p

    Cool, will try this:

    MY other half wanted these as she said they were on offer. I havent had the 3 4 2 deducted, so to save any hassle, can I get a refund for them and then take them to include them in the shopping I am doing today. It will be easier for me to explain to her in the full receipt for todays shop. She holds the purse strings

    Not telling them that OH is inflatable

    Such a miserable day today ! ! The rain hasn't stopped once

    I did my first 3for2 shop yesterday and am thinking of going again today
    Does anyone know if any of the oral b toothpastes are working as I usually buy the whitening ones at full price ? If not I will have to stick to the sensodyne shop I did yesterday !

    Also a big thankyou to everyone taking the time to post shops, update lists and working out the costs

    Yes I'm on Dexamethasone and Prednisolone steroids too, but can start weaning off soon.
    After taking your advice Di, I have been taking the Ondansetron for 5 days after chemotherapy, which has greatly reduced nausea . Thank you
    I'm too advanced to be cured, but want as many cancer cells to be killed as possible. I may have Radiotherapy further down the road

    Sorry I hadn't realised that. Glad the ondansetron worked I don't know why they bother with the other ones they're useless.
    Are you eating enough for a whole family on the steroids, oh my I did and still have the extra four stone as a little memory
