    Yes I was thinking that it was last Friday when we were in Morribobs that the free cider went live on COS so all of us will be checking COS at regular intervals this morning.

    We had a very decadent afternoon yesterday - gin and tonics using the last of the little free bottles of tonic we got free from COS - was it around Christmas?
    Then I went into the cupboard and noticed the Taylors coffee free from shopimum which will go into the collection.
    I like how the various freebies get us to try brands that we would never normally even think of buying - some a roaring success and some were total failures

    Check your emails from Judes ice cream this morning as they include a £1 MOC - it looks like a normal print off as many as you need coupon.

    These are on offer in Waitrose 342 so if your store stocks them and you have three £1 MOCs they work out at a very reasonable price and they would make a good addition to a £10 shop for a free newspaper and fee coffee.

    Actually that is all you would need - 3 Judes, coffee and newspaper

    Also Waitrose have the shloer on offer - 241 £1.99 and its on shopimum buy one get one free - cant figure out if you need to buy 2 bottles or 4 ....

    I m going to have to start getting myself organised. I seem to be miles behind these days

    Last night I ordered the most beautiful chandelier for the landing of our house from BHS at a fraction of the cost of what we've been looking at. As it's a galleried landing we need something dramatic and very long, some places want over 3k for very similar

    Once I placed the order it flashed up would you like to give your friends and family 10% off their next order. So I popped in DH's email add and used his code to rebuy the chandelier a few minutes later . I must have got the last one in my second order as it was showing OOS after and when I checked again this morning it's not showing at all now.

    I need to cancel the original order this morning but it's worth noting if there's a large purchase you need to make maybe worth making a small purchase first

    Good morning all, another day when I won't even think about drawing the lounge curtains for a few hours

    Good luck with the chemo today sal, we are all thinking of you.

    Woke up to the house still at 28 degrees this morning, in spite of open windows, not a drop of rain for a while now Struggling to keep the tomatoes in my mini greenhouse turgid!
