    Don't forget 3 days left for Kettle Bites on cos and cs. £1 In T with 75p back.
    25p for a 5 pack is good value and the maple bbq are really nice for 99 calories.
    curl girl with a space - even though there is no space in my cupboards!!!

    Evening Elite Sorry but after a full day out at Good Food Show and then a meal at Hungry Horse (with gift cards) I was shattered and went straight to bed without opening up my laptop. But it was a very good day with some lovely freebies

    When we got back over this way, we called into Wisb Morries and car showed 37 degrees I was melting once I got out of car. Got home and lads set up the chiller which we had left to 'rest' after transport and then put loads of my stuff back into stash cupboard in a more ordered way Still got all my dry goods like couscous, lentils, beans, rice, etc plsu my toiletries, so I need another plastic drawer unit for dry goods and the toiletries are going into Ikea white boxes on shelving in bedroom. Then I might even be organised Next job will definitely be my bedroom as I can bearly get round to the wardrobe. Full reorganisation on the cards

    I have copied lots of posts to update lists but for now all I've done is change DB from M to S shops, at different price. I'll do a bit more tonight and hopefully rest of it tomorrow

    also whilst in sada this morning I got the 2 cashback items for TCB

    shloer 75p
    pork pie 75p

    both on offer in sada for £1 and both showing straight away as pending on mine and OHs TCB - probably both eaten and drunk before it gets to the paid column

    In view of the earlier discussion regarding downloading your cashback as soon as it goes into the payable column its made me anxious about the May Day offer from April 29th which is still in the pending column - it was £2.50 on purchases of over £12 (£10 plus vat)

    I did empty our TCBs payable balances down to nothing after the Mr T cc card option was withdrawn, only use them now rarely, mostly its Q

    Mums been deteriorating slowly through the week since she came out of Hospital last Saturday.
    Got a phone call from my sister yesterday evening saying she had to call out the McMillan nurse as mum was breathing funny. Nurse advised her to contact family members as mum could pass away soon or could be few more days but it was obvious her body was shutting down. Got to my mums at 11.15pm. She passed at 11.30pm, surrounded by 3 of her daughters, at home, just as she wanted.
    RIP mum you fought the good fight till the end.

    Condolences to the family xx

    I just take each day as it comes. Just had my second year scan and waiting for results to see if I'm still clear of the dreaded cancer.

    I do pop in to the forum every other day. Perhaps I need to post more and keep a positive attitude.

    Positivity helps greatly NG. Is it really as long ago, good luck with second year scan results. It's the waiting that brings us down, don't you think?

    Yes pop in more, you'll have a laugh, especially of an evening xx
