    Sad news though - Phantom pregnancy and labour

    She has had two previous litters, of only two puppies each - she is a Maltese and litter sizes are generally small. But labour lasted about 3 hours both times previously. So I took her to the Vets earlier as I was getting concerned.

    Vet did a thorough ultrasound and manual examination and definitely no puppies there
    She is still showing all the signs of labour though and even has milk.
    The Vet says she may have been carrying a puppy but it died earlier in the pregnancy and has been re-absorbed

    How sad and disappointing, but she has had an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory and a good check over.
    Don't let someone dim your light - simply because it is shining in their eyes.

    I got the neon coral ones, they are not actually lace up and the tongue is not separate. Most of the trainers they have looked to have a good arch in them but I only tried on those ones and the bubble mesh ones.

    They are selling the promo packs so they should honour them. Particularly because their website says they will take internet coupons

    A good filler against S should be the Macaroni Cheese tin. *Not* the SP version which is 40p elsewhere, but this, the standard range Mr A version:

    ASDA Macaroni Cheese (395g)


    55p 49p 12.4p / 100g

    35p 25p


    I bet that this is already common knowledge as I think it's something that's not.

    Just to confuse you - switching abruptly to versus T - Ryvita Original Crackerbread (200g) should be £1.09 vs 54p (the lowest price I've ever seen).

    On the other hand they wouldn't take the Walkers vouchers as "there have been a lot of forgeries". I pointed out the numbers were different but no joy. Not a problem as I have a 'few' and can use at T or W.
    Drizzling with rain but have seen 4 separate middle aged men in shorts and t shirts, why?
    Have a great day everyone, will post results later.

    Are we aware that you can use the paypacket vouchers without authorization on SS till.

    i managed this at 4 different A's, loads of times

    this is how i do it.

    after scanning your items, scan your paypacket vouchers.

    ££
    ££

    shows on screen

    press finish and pay.
    you then have option how to pay, eg cash, card, etc

    then press card payment,
    screen pops up "voucher ok" "vouchers declined"
    your vouchers are under left hand side "vouchers ok"
    you then press ok and it comes off your shopping.

    at this stage you can cancel payment at bottom of screen, and revert back to previous page and pay cash instead with deductions still there.

    happy shopping

    Yeah, that was my response to Trout. All I got was a shrug of the shoulders. "That's what we've been told"
    Didn't want to make a fuss as I was about to use several large PAG's I will contact Walkers rather than A HQ as this makes a mockery of their promotion.
    Worse thing was, kneejerk reaction was to take the crisps off my shopping - realised on way home that shop was less than 8 items. Toothpaste & Bodywash to go back next week

    Fingers crossed that the PAG machine is not broken.
