    I think Cheshiire Oaks is our nearest big cinema about 45 mins away.
    Over the last 4 years I think we have been to 2 previews - very rarely they are put on at the Odeon at Festival Park Hanley on a Sunday morning which is 20 mins up the D road on a good day

    Well my old friends at Morphy R have just confirmed they are sending me something to test.....

    I got all excited,then read the email to find out it's yet another steam generator.

    That's all they ever send...I've had 5 now!

    I guess beggars can't be choosers but it would be nice to test something else...I remember when I signed up a few years ago they asked what products I used and I said I really wanted a kettle!

    If anyone is in Birmingham city centre on October 11th and wants a Harvey Nics beauty evening - it says tickets are £10 but it comes up at £11.51 - but its redeemable against purchases so if you are about to buy a beauty product anyway it is a reasonably cheap night out .
    Also free fizz

    https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/an-evening-of-beauty-with-harvey-nichols-tickets-38492074832?aff=eshot&mc_eid=f26c74bb87&mc_cid=34d 1a3893d

    With luxury treatments available across brands including Fenty, Nars and Hourglass, live music and complimentary drinks, you won’t want to miss it!



    Here’s what you can expect:

    •Experience mini-makeovers and treatments from Environ, YSL and more!


    •Discover tips and tricks from the beauty experts at Sisley and Caudalie


    •Enjoy complimentary fizz and live entertainment


    •Receive a gift with purchase on certain brands


    Tickets are just £10, which is redeemable against purchases on the night. Get your tickets now as places are limited!

    Might be other Harvey Nics as well on other nights???

    Its a Wednesday evening and I think Pizza express has good discount codes via email update on Wednesdays and then there is a Piture and Piano somewhere around the mailbox as well
    So a fairly cheap night out

    "We are currently sourcing detailed information for this product."

    Well I can tell you precisely where it is - it's in your store showing 50p RTC. Along with Knickerbocker Glory and Black Forest Gateaux, also saying 50p RTC each.

    https://groceries.morrisons.com/webshop/product/Aunt-Bessies-2-Black-Forest-Gateaux/354517011
    "Sorry, we don't have the product information you requested at this time"

    Well I do! It's in your store as I've said, 180g at 50p RTC, I know more information than you have.

    https://groceries.morrisons.com/webshop/product/Aunt-Bessies-Knickerblocker-Glory/354519011

    "We are currently sourcing detailed information for this product."

    The clue is there - OOS means "on RTC in store".
