    I'll do a test shop anyway. If the one I'm thinking of works, then I think it's worth it. One problem is it compares to Morrison so that could also screw it up.

    As a result of 2 holibobs and some serious decanting, chucking out a couple of dried up samples, food bank donations and selling on to my girls group (for a tiny profit) I've reduced my toiletry stash by 32
    I have bought 6 in the 342 glitch, but overall I think I'm doing very well. I resisted in the discount bath and body shop when I was away.

    I am also a big no no when it comes to edible fragrant body washes/butters or even smelly candles, but after having my DD stay for a few days i found this in the shower so i did give this one a go over the weekend and it is really lovely, i was pleasantly surprised, it comes in vanilla and strawberry too. x

    Went to Shoes yesterday for some perfume for a birthday coming up.

    CKin2u was £40, now £20 (100ml)

    Paid with glitchy points. Bargain.

    Can anyone here give any advice about a child over 18 who has started working?

    He's not long 18 and has been at college, but now just wants a full time job (and may have one in the pipeline).

    I've tried entitledto.co.uk, but the figures it shows don't seem right (eg it shows me still receiving child ben for him- this wouldn't be if he was working??).

    Has anyone else been in a similar situation?

    Some of those people are my friends. We all have our own opinions, and mine is that that is a bloomin darned site better than letting labour in, he has rewritten history and everyone actually believes him when it is documented that he was pro IRA, pro HAMAS etc however much he denies it.

    The Simple weren't included in the 3 for 2 in my local. Might be worth keeping an eye on in case they move them into the offer. The one I was interested in was the Micellar cleansing water as they would have compared to Morrison & Sainsbury at £2 each. More's the pity.

    I am not totally in the loop but it seems to say you still get child benefit until the end of August

    https://www.gov.uk/child-benefit-16-19

    I seem to think he will also be still disregarded for council tax purposes until the end of October - if you are the only other over 18 adult in the household.

    Various people have to be informed of changes

    Walkers Crisps site having problems, had 3 wins last night, no emails.
    Just rang then, said there is a fault in the system. Will sent the vouchers by post.

    Regarding excessive APG,s - have you tried buying some clothes that don't fit and returning, with receipt? They should give you a gift card for the value even though you used APG.s.
    Find it's easier at Customer Services than George Desk as they tend to question it, so go when George desk is closed.

    Also talking about Quidco, next time you are in your account check back on your activity, not just the first page.

    I found 2 transactions on page 2, further back in my activity that had been confirmed but not reached the paid stage from December 2016 and one from January so I've sent them messages to bump them along - only about 50p worth but even so ...

    Grabbed a pic yesterday, didn't do a TM and photograph the whole of the toiletries aisle . At least 2 of these may compare to T, something for the men's wrinkles. I'll have a better look after I'm back from checking on the building progress, see you later

    ETA I see Hampy found it's still there

    But 3.49 isn't bad for delivery in my book, as otherwise I'd have to buy more to get to the £20 and then allocate a whole chunk of time to getting the bus to L/pool and trudging about, plus coping with the return journey encumbered with a box, and town centre shopping does not float my boat really, it never did. What with work and DD's recent house move, a day to myself is a true joy at the minute. I'm still in recovery I think! I have one more trip over to her old place, to collect my mini stepladder before the tenant moves in, then hopefully that is it, except that then all the short trips will be replaced with a longer one to go and see them.

    My kitchen's had a mini upgrade out of it - my Dyson has been upgraded to a newer model, my SimpleHuman bin looks very smart (who pays £79 for a bin????) and my Breville Impressions toaster and kettle also look good.
