    There was a huge angry cloud a little while ago but the sun is breaking through again. Not even got any washing to do today and my ironing is done too! Amazing how much I get done when I'm not galivanting.
    Looked out at the moon last night indie but it just looked normal.
    Remember arriving back at Manchester Airport at night and being driven back to our car and this huge moon looked like it was just in front of us.
    It was quite scary actually and we had never heard of a super moon before.
    Well no wins to report, anyone else?
    Good luck to all.

    Well done on win Firefly. Great pretty for your SIL. Pleased you enjoyed making crackers. Ive been doing the same as you clearing cupboards to stock up. DH yesterday bought loads of coffee as it was reduced. Need to book some online shopping as DH said the shops were packed even though he went at a so called quiet time.

    Well done on wins mummy2threeboys. Hope you have a great day today. Very busy time of year now with family.

    Indie enjoy your days off. Good luck with advents.

    Sylvia its been brr. here but I'm sure its colder your way. I think Sheils must be sheltered as she had washing out the other day. Agree with you about Advents. I forgot about topcashback keep at it Sheils Goodluck.

    Rose hope you keep feeling better and catch up soon.

    Hope everyone is warm. Good Luck

    Well done on the win FF.

    By the way it is Quidco I have won a lot on not Topcashback. Quidcos comp starts tomorrow (game) so I am hopeful!
    Voucher code has a game on at the moment where you can win vouchers although I haven't won anything. ILC has won quite a few so maybe worth a go.

    We are lucky with the weather here leanfun (Gulf stream flows past us)
    It doesn't stop the rain though! We get more than our share of that.

    thanks leanfun/sheils re win
    great idea leanfun stocking up coffee while reduced
    agree with DH about shops being very busy already!
    was in co-op this morning & lots were there with trolleys
    of tins of biscuits/chocs etc getting them in!
    also online shopping bookings are filling up fast for
    xmas this year so have to get in early there as well!
    I've a main one booked on Tesco & one on morrisons


    sorry sheils misread thinking you said you'd won
    cashback so well done on wins on Quidco
    & good luck for the new one tomorrow

    Hope everyone having fun with the advents! I am quite enjoying having some different comps to do. Have won a £5 Cafe Nero voucher and a £10 Cineworld voucher on the Vouchercodes game instant so at least have won something this month!

    Sorry FF, didn't make myself clear about the cashback sites! I have won 20p on Topcashback but normally it is Quidco that I am lucky on when thay have their instant games.

    Looks like today is going to be we so maybe get a few comps done today.
    Good Luck all.

    St. Nicholas Day


    Good morning everyone


    Hope you're all ok - it's incredibly mild here at the mo so
    hoping it'll stay that way for a while. Even my Begonias
    (planted in tubs in Spring for the Summer) are still looking
    beautiful and survived a few visits from Jack Frost - so
    happy enough to let them carry on flowering away!

    Your crackers sound brilliant! Love the way they can be
    personalised.


    I really must try to finish decorating my lounge with Xmas
    fast approaching cos it's still all topsy-turvy at the mo (much
    to puddys delight). Plus I need to make space to
    put the tree up (even more fun for puddy)!


    Excellent idea stocking up with coffee leanfun while it's
    cheaper. I agree - the shops are so busy particularly at
    this time of year! I must go out this morning to make a start
    on my Christmas food shop. Have written a list - that's as
    far as I've got!


    Love your 'dipping the toe in' pic sylv!





    I'm still dipping in and out of the Advents here time
    permitting.


    Just seen your post sheils - very well done on your wins -
    brilliant start to the day!


    Have a lovely and lucky Wednesday all and please take care
    whatever you're up to.
