    We've just heard on the weather that we will be having a nice afternoon....sometime. They are unsure when....it could be this week

    I've just had a terrible shock and I urge all of you to look behind your beds immediately.
    I was changing our pillowcases and the bedside lamp was on. I peered behind the headboard and the skirting boards are filthy

    How did that happen?

    Poor girl, poked and prodded so needlessly - she must be so fed up of medics by now. I suppose once they start to induce you they cant send you home even if nothing happens.
    Hopefully today will be the big day

    Mr TS will be especially pleased with the bacon jam as he had a go at making his own after seeing it on some cooking program.

    You're welcome.

    If its likely to be a short lived glitch my strategy is two shops (wait three hours) two more shops, rinse and repeat.
    So, 9am, 12.30, 16.00, 19.30.
    Eight shops a day.

    Of course I never know whether its going to be short lived so I batter the glitch anyway in the early days.

    On Sundays we are cut back a little, at least in England/Wales and with no hope of crossing into Scotland during the day, as effectively, starting right on opening, it is 10am and then will have to be soon after 1pm depending on how fast you completed the first shop - unless anyone has another A that chooses to open until 5pm, that's then it - without anywhere open an hour later, it's two shopping trips and could be 11am/2pm or midday/3pm - or 12.30pm/quarter to four if you want to cut it fine - actually 3.20pm and 3.40pm on Sundays do seem to be the best time for more wombles today as people are forced to shop before 4.

    Hopefully, the limit of two shopping trips on Sunday will go up a little in a few weeks' time when the check time reverts to waiting two hours.

    There a few changes in M today (it's only two days after I last visited) although I am back to thinking the major changes are back on Mondays. There are extra offers (or ones that I didn't notice on Monday or ones that neither of my stores had got round to showing until yesterday or this morning). There may be a handful of changes upwards - though I can't say that these are definitely changes yet as I am part way through and need to see if that it is the way the prices have gone. The Bold 24 washes (1.2L) may be off in M and going from £2.77 to full price (or that may be my store has full price SELs and has not shown the offer - I need to see my other stores). The Gillette Blue 3 Disposable Razors 4 may be off and the San Miguel 12x330ml it is suggested that that may be £9.30 now (need to see if everywhere else is still telling me it is £7). However, I now have some Kingfisher 12x330ml beer on £7.

    The Fixodent cream that I have on RTC is no longer RTC but now full price - whether that really was on RTC before or whether it was a case of one of my stores showing me the RTC and another full price but me taking the lowest price - the RTC may have ended soon before I went back to M last week or may have still been on but is definitely off now on the product in my store (this has been scanned at SS).

    The big box of Pampers wipes, that was supposedly ending on Monday according to online and went to £10 there, is still showing me £7.50 so far - I need to see if that has changed elsewhere before concluding that is still on. I can now see that online has changed from £7.50 on Sunday to £10.00 on Monday to £8.50 now. And they now have an online exclusive offer, wanting you to buy three for £25! Around £8.33 each, well, if they are £7.50 instore, and I haven't got that decided yet - I would say it is certainly possibly to get them for £7.50 at the moment in at least one store, via CS if it comes up higher than that as £7.50 is what they are displaying - I suppose there's no reason why an "online exclusive" offer can't be much more expensive and require more purchases than an instore price.

    And, saving the best till last, I now have further kitchen items on 50p/30p RTCs. They include one Pyrex item that I took from HUKD and I have a further two Pyrex items on £1 RTC. As with all RTCs, you may find the 'national' price is bettered in some stores that knock the RTC price down further on store-specific basis. All of the RTCs I have may be found even cheaper in one M or another. I have the 2 piece Saucepan Set now at 20p RTC although that's apparently the national price.

    There are some RTCs in the stationery section that have also gone cheaper. The Maped Study Compass - this is a pencil for drawing circles rather than a navigational aid - is now 10p RTC (at least on the SEL of my store). Otherwise, as it will take me beyond all day before I change prices or add further items onto the list, you'd best just go and check your M's stationery and kitchen clearance sections as you may find other items that I don't have and you will have what you have available to you anyway - might well disappear from your store entirely if you wait for me. No guarantees of finding anything you want and it's up to you whether you are already going to M or not. I have more items, for example M Desktop Calculator now at 50p. Anyway.

    That's a big calculator rather than the Pocket Calculator that is now also showing me the same price - whose previous version did go much cheaper than that a year or two ago however.

    I didn't bother with that just yet, as got the other version at much cheaper price back then and now don't need a calculator at all. I did manage to get a big pack of one product at 2 for £1 however. Unfortunately, they had a very small other item on 2 for £1 on the shelf above but they duplicated the mbuy label (one without a product name) on the shelf below, right under the product that I didn't want at £1 but 2 for £1 is rather nice. 50p each buying two - as if those big packs would ever go down to such a price and as if it would be a bogof offer of £1 and 2 for £1. So, I took my two pounds to the SS and obviously full price, paid the £2 and got £1 back from the CS desk. The desk was initially empty when I arrived and then this nasty-looking woman arriving scowling, whom I have asked for price checks far too many times before. Somehow I didn't check this item before buying it.

    She turned out to be really nice and gave me a pound back straight away. I just said they said 2 for £1 under them on the aisle end, which they did (probably still do in my store as only an hour ago) and she didn't go to check or even get anyone to check but just gave me a pound. They've probably had so many SELs incorrect that they don't need to check or maybe they've had someone else buying the same earlier and knew the offer label was up additional to what should be. I could have got another item for 3 for £1 as they have still left up the mbuy on that, that seems to have ended several weeks ago - however that was just a normal offer ending and I didn't want the items at that offer price. No details of what they are being mentioned, because this is just incorrect SELs in one place that won't be found widely. The kind of thing I have found can on rare occasions be found elsewhere - I had something else in another store months ago that I could have got cheaper where a similar mistake had been made - some large mbuy price label, of the kind that just has the price, misplaced on the end of an aisle, so, as usual, keep your eyes open around there. Or a label with just a price on it underneath or alongside a product that is never as cheap as that (but where your average punter could legitimately think was, from what is displayed). Don't go there expecting it though - it's happened only twice in many years to me (including the one now) and you know I've been through numerous stores and visits in that time where it hasn't been seen, so don't expect but do look for it (or keep a usual eye open).

    Just one shop today, nine Alberts to add to the pile.

    Its raining now, so no chance of zipping out on the Honda.

    Pud in a mug still 49p for three today. To be fair I'm not overly impressed, wont be buying at 85p.
