    If anyone has Twitter app on their phones take notice of their latest update. It comes with a notice about sending you personalised adverts (according to your locations and pages you visit etc ) don't blindly tick the yes button but go to your settings and there you can individually allow or disallow various actions
    To me it feels quite intrusive
    something to think about anyway

    My plan was to simply cancel the direct debit and wait for the desperate phone calls.

    Morning everyone,

    The Metcalfe's Popcorn (buy from T's only) that is on cos with 12 days left to run is going down in price from £1.49 to £1 with 50p cashback. This is from 24th to 30th May.

    Wonder if cos will pull this one like they did the Kettle Bites, then put them back on when the price goes back up? Getting a bit crafty they are.

    Has everyone had their Mr Tosser quarterly statements now?
    I must admit I had forgotten all about them, at one time not so long ago those 4 end of the quarter dates were highlights on the calendar, now I can only guess - possibly January because often its when we are away, May sometime, August and the last one might be
    october or november according to whenever Christmas starts ...

    Anyway between us we have about £5 worth but only because of adding a few points. I really need to have a look at the accounts and try and think of something I can use them for ...

    Also we have finally got our National Trust membership pack - we rejoined at the end of April via vouchercodes for the extra Marks voucher which sadly it is not tracking so Ive got to chase this up.

    When you join you get an email with temporary cards and I realised this week that they were about to expire so I rang them up and they emailed another set with 06/06 expiry dates on them

    They have been having some sort of technical issues hence the delay but our membership pack arrived today and they have included a voucher for free pots if tea for 2 as compensation for the delay
    (I am wondering if someone with family membership would be getting a different voucher)

    We joined by monthly direct debit this time for £9 a month as it works out the same overall but in June £27 will go out to catch up.

    Also if anyone has had reminders about renewal check the various leaflets in your letter as ours came with a voucher to take a spare person with you - it just needs your details and membership number. This will be very useful if ever we get visitors as we can take them out on a day trip with us.The leaflet looks like nothing much so it would be very easy to bin it - everyone now goes to check their Recycling bins

    We have now ended up with 2 handbooks which is a good thing as its one for each card and a car parking pass each so very useful.

    About 70% of shops now from Aldi and only odd bits from the supermarkets

    My husband bought home a lovely bunch of lilies yesterday. He left for a work trip this morning so it'll be nice to look at those whilst he's away

    We're having our belated honeymoon in a couple of weeks (we've got young children so hard to get babysitters for a week!)

    And on the sky TV frontage I logged onto My Sky this morning to see what offers there were and it now says 50% off sky TV
    So I am wondering now if its worth another call to see what else they might offer me for the fibre/line rental bit

    This only brings me down to what I was offered on the first call so its not that much of an improvement

    Morning all - Happy Anniversary xxloiuse !!!127870; Shame hubby is away but I'm sure you will make up for that upon his return

    A little bit drier here today TG still no denying the garden needed it. Have to take DS up to hospital for physiology appointment early this morning - felt very anxious again but once there chatting to the staff forgot about it. .

    Like others Sunlife sent me my M & S card this morning - so will go nicely with 20% off offer.

    Have a good day Everyone xx
