    Flannels is a very expensive shop. I posted on Sunday that there was a glitch on men's dkny stuff. T shirts were £7 now £65, blazers £33 now £255. Not sure if anyone ordered I don't think anyone commented about it. Dh is very happy he loves expensive clothes.

    Well I tried to do a Brookside shop today but guess what?

    My T don't sell them It took me a full morning to convince myself that I needed them and then I find out they don't sell them.

    So then I had to spend the afternoon convincing myself that I didn't want them anyway

    Updated Thursday 18th May 2.00 am to reflect change in comparision on Imperial Leather Foamburst - this item no longer working


    Further updated list for ASDA 3for2 glitch. Buy in 3 or 6 of same price items (do not mix £6 with £2.50 for example) Be careful as 6 John Frieda will give £18 APG. Need 8 items for APG but get 10 to be safe

    Before buying, make sure that the items you choose are including in 3for2 offer in your store and that the offer they are comparing to has not changed. I will try to pick up any changes and amend the list as soon as possible, but some may slip through


    These results listed are taken from results kindly posted here and on FB, so I offer many thanks to everyone who has tested and posted their results

    I read your post Di but as Mr TM had just had his fix in Fenwicks on the Saturday, I never bothered looking. He spends more in one shop in one day than I spend in a year.

    Do we all know about this?


    New from September 2017 - 30 Hours Free Childcare for 3 and 4 year olds
    From September 2017, the Government will offer 30 hours of free childcare per week for parents of three and four year olds, to help them continue or take up employment. Guidance from the Department for Education states that you will need to meet the following criteria to be eligible:

    You earn, or expect to earn, the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage (as a minimum) for the first three months following application.
    This equates to £120 a week (or about £6,000 a year) for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week (or about £5,800 a year) for each parent between 21 and 24 years old.
    This applies whether you are in paid employment, self-employed or on zero hours contract.
    Where one parent meets the income criteria above and the other is:
    Unable to work because they are disabled, have caring responsibilities or have been assessed as having limited capability to work.
    On maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave, or if they are on statutory sick leave.
    Where you are in a 'start-up period' (ie newly self-employed) you do not need to demonstrate that you meet the income criteria for 12 months.
    If you are a non-European Economic Area (EEA) national, you must have recourse to public funds.
    Who will not qualify?
    You will not meet the criteria when:

    Either parent has an income of more than £100,000.
    Either parent is a non-EEA national and subject to immigration control (and has no recourse to public funds).
    What happens if a parent loses eligibility?
    You will receive a "grace period" - this means you will be able to keep your childcare for a short period.
    Once the "grace period" has lapsed, you may be entitled to the universal 15 hour entitlement.

    On my Amex offers

    Spend £45 or more, get £10 back
    Save to Card to get a £10 statement credit on a transaction of £45 or more when dining at ASK Italian restaurants by 2 July 2017. Terms and payment restrictions apply.

    I've also received an unbirthday discount of £20 off a £50 spend at Ask.

    Can't see how I can spend enough to combine them

    If you have a Taste card the offer is 241
    So go to Ask and use your Amex card and buy £50 of gift cards. The £10 will go onto your Amex card automatically.
    Then when you go for your meal you will need to take 3 friends
    4 mains and 2 starters/desserts could be £50 so you can use your £20 wys £50 total left to pay £30 (of your giftcards)
    Or use the tastecard 241 offer and your £50 bill is now £25
    So you can go again

    Taste card - if you google there are £1 trial offers for a months membership.

    I was up early this morning as had vet appointment for Berry's 3 month prescription review at 9.10. My lovely Romanian Vet Andre started early so he could see us, and when he saw how Berry was walking (very badly) he said it was time for some pain relief for him. Berry's heart was OK and no pain in abdomen which were good signs. Andre took basic bloods to check liver function and main one was ok and another borderline, so he said he could go onto Loxicom and then we will do bloods again in a month and then every 3 months to keep an eye on liver in case they affect him. Have to be so careful with medication with him prone to pancreatitis. £63 bill but that included nail clipping, but not the Loxicom as I'm getting that next week. Ordered his Dementia meds online (£72 for 3 months supply) using the presciption given today and they'll be here by weekend
