    I am part way through a price collection that I don't do on Mondays anymore. No use using one store when I have items missing - and the usual queries. I may get time to try to resolve those later today. Lots of things to tie up before I reveal anything and items to be added - you will know what they are and that I think they are not yet for any APG attempt as I will leave them in bold on the list. Main ones are some Alpro chilled products that have gone onto £1 (rather standard) and I think some Palmolive Shower Gels and Gourmet Shower Creams, 250ml, have also gone onto straight £1 if they were not already on that before.

    *I must have known there was a price for M as I have put it on "best vs M" part of the list - which I wouldn't have done, with another competitor being on the same price, if M really was N/A.

    M lists - post 24450 onwards for now (on page 612).
    Partially expired version from last week with this week's new items missing - posts 22772-3 (page 570) and 22982 (page 575).
    SP list - page 548, posts 21900-21903 [A price on fish fingers not yet altered throughout].
    For my reference: was previously page 535 (21371).

    Beautiful morning here. I have been for a lovely long scenic drive along country lanes, the trees are a sight to behold, every moment a pleasure.

    And then I called in at a little Boots but the new November mags aren't out yet, they just had loads of old Sept/Oct ones.

    Closer to home, I saw the most gorgeous ginger tabby take on four lanes of traffic on the very busy A41 - he crossed it in about five flying leaps - no central reservation. Must have had a lot of practice.

    Afternoon all!


    Just popping my head round the door before popping out for my lunchbreak.


    You'll never guess what happened less than 2 hours after JL confirmed my headphones order... Yes, you guessed it, after two weeks of radio silence, the hotel has finally emailed to say they've found them! Sod's law!


    I'm carrying on with the order in case I can't get the originals returned, so we'll see how that goes! The hotel wanted us to email our card details to arrange the return, which sounded more than a little dodgy... I've tried ParcelHero for a quote but they wanted over £100, crazy money. Any other recommendations for cheap returns from New York please and thank you? It's less than 1kg, only about 25 x 20 x 15cm at most.

    Happy Birth Day hopefully

    I'm trying to start up a painted stones thingy, that you hide around the area & people find & post their find & then re hide...

    Got my stones painted, I just need a good short name for it.
    There is a fabulous site called Shropshire Rocks.

    We need a big glitch.

    I was looking at some photos earlier, of the smelly glitch. We need another one like that.

    Yes, its very quiet around her, tumbleweed in all directions, maybe it will pick up later in the week ....

    I've got the miseries, we had some very bad news this morning but it will be at least a week before we know exactly what's happening, no point dwelling so I am keeping busy trying to sort through books for Oxfam and Amazon ...

    Another of those things that nothing will improve, not even positive thoughts so maybe some old fashioned prayers - although the queue for those on The Elite is very long so they are very rationed ...

    DH and I are off to Brum this evening, bright lights big city and all that!

    Going to see a comedy night, really looking forward to it as it's been booked for over a year now. I don't think we'll be back before 11.30 tonight though, far too late on a school night

    I had a very efficient and effective lunchbeak today - I found a Superdrug tea tree mud cleansing face mask reduced to 25p and thought I'd give it a go as all the other tea tree items were listed with the 'buy three get a free carex gift set' offer, and it worked!

    There was also another mask of some sort (didn't see the brand) that was down to 5p and I suspect that would work with the gift set too as it was also surrounded by other things in the offer.

    Three gift sets later and a very happy MSE-er

    Well a bit of a non day for me. No money spent

    Called in T. The 2 for £2 has ended on the yoghurts....funny that happening just as the mags went out

    Plus the retro selection boxes have gone up to £3
