    Have some good news to share from both the boys, ds2 is now engaged she is so lovely and dd is delighted as she is her best friend . they are happily house hunting

    And ds3 despite missing lots of college because of his illness and his tutor wanting him to leave has finished his first year of law at a distinction level and college have arranged for him to start a business course next year alongside law. The business is a full time course so they have never had a pupil doing the law as well, but as he has already done his welsh bac first year he will be doing law while the rest are doing the bac . . complicated but will be worth it, x

    One quick thing, has anyone ever got Argos to match Asda price? I've been reading a post on Extreme Couponing about Rapunzel and Cinderella dolls for £1 in Asda. Someone bought them both then went to their Argos where they price matched the rest of the set, except one which they didn't have in stock.

    I've seen this mentioned before on other products, didn't know they did it.
