    well inevitably we had rain so the bedding had to come in again.

    Still nothing new exciting and free on the cashback lists and nothing I can find in stock locally.
    So I took a few bits to the Mr Tosser foodbank collection and loitered on the section end that had reduced biscuits a few weeks back, this time it was reduced pet food in the green flat trays. I got Whiskas casserole 40 sachet giant box for £5 - usefull

    Also on TCB on the app there are a few useful grocery cashback items so I got the florette crispy salad for £1 - 50p cashback - again better than nothing.

    Then off to Morribobs in search of the free Organix goody gummies which our very big store does not stock

    Afternoon all.

    Can anyone offer any advice please?

    I've got a c&c to collect from asda later 4-5 , but dh got a problem with his eye and our Dr surgery is closed. Looks like I've got to take him A&E so think I've got to cancel my order. Does anyone know how it works as I've paid with evouchers and cash, will I lose the vouchers?

    Thanks fernie

    I'm on a trial until 2nd june so it will be interesting to see if I can still access the questionnaire after 1st june if thats when it swaps.

    Must admit I dont get a lot from them now product wise and despite filling in those "would you be interested..."type emails,I never get anything that I actually express a liking for.

    The trial that I'm doing at the moment is for a product I wouldn't even consider buying in a month of Sundays...but according to the info sheet I " have been specifically selected to test this!"

    I've not filled mind in yet but will do later. It's taken me twice to try to type this fell asleep twice off for a nap before I click something I shouldn't

    I would keep it to myself, that's my answer to question 20

    Oh my gosh LEJC - what a nightmare!

    I moved into a new build some years ago and was told both electricity and gas were supplied by Eon. And I started getting proper bills from them. Then after about 6 months I started getting bills for the electricity from British Gas. I phoned and emailed them and kept getting told it was an error and to ignore. But then got the red overdue letters, then cut-off notices, then passed onto debt-collectors.
    Took about a year before it was sorted - and that was only after I started an action for harassment
    Well, I was late in being seen today. I'm still hooked up with about 40 minutes of my infusion left to go.

    Oh bless you JTS....Lets see if we can make those 40 mins whizz by for you...

    I have dealt with quite a few electricity suppliers in my time and TBH...I probably dont rate any of them very highly on customer service and queries....
    A couple of years ago I came across ovo by chance as the supplier of rental we bought...and so far touch wood they have been fantastic and so easy to deal with...a smallish company but quite obliging energy wise.
    theres a lesson in there somewhere for me...perhaps its time to switch all the properties to one provider .....
