    Outside light being triggered on & off as Virginia Creeper is flapping about in the wind ...
    Go out to porch with scissors to cut the tendrils off - get stung on my index finger by a tiny wasp
    It is agony
    I'm now itching all over with imagery insects
    I'm going to end up in the bath as my hair is crawling alive now
    Now my finger is swelling rapidly, moving into my knuckles I have removed all rings & bangles.
    Slavered in insect bite cream, rescue Remedy cream & Savlon

    Just what I need at midnight...........

    aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhh

    Evening Elite
    Sorry so late,just got home.

    Had hospital appointment in St Helens this afternoon.
    Went into Tesco Extra, Prescot on way back
    .
    Wanted to get a Robinsons purple water bottle for 10p as had been suggested might work, without juice. Prefer Fruit and Barley given the choice.

    Used self-scan gun, no price came up for purple bottle scanned on own, but after scanning 2 bottles of juice, 2 for £2.00, it scanned and took £5.00 off the bill. Giving a negative balance of -£3.00.

    20 bottles of juice and 10 purple juice bottles = minus £30.00
    Couldn't believe it.
    Having kittens going through self scan tills. Got stopped for check.
    Assistant pulled 5 items out to check, then let me through.
    Got juice, bottles and shopping for £4.94. having really spent £50.94 ( I think ) on food , juice and water bottles.
    Charged 10p for each water bottle on bill

    Sub-total £65.74
    Multibuy Savings
    Water bottle Free - 50.00
    Ice cream 2 for £3.00 -1.00
    Drinks 2 for £2 -9.80
    Total savings -60.80

    Total to Pay £ 4.94

    Hope that makes sense

    Sorry don't know how to post receipt from Tesco.

    Repeated with remaining 9 water bottles.

    Seemed to be changing all the offers, so don't know if will work tomorrow/Friday.

    What a day so far - had a message to say someone might of handed my earring into a shop in town ...
    Galloped to town, and the relief is tremendous - it is my earring. Found on pavement on Tuesday by a lady who I have thanked verbally & rewarded too ♥
    Absolutely over the moon - it has been found, 30 years old & worn for nearly every day of those 30 years



    Bless You ♥

    All caught up, phew off for some refreshment before I go look for a 1 day travel insurance if they are still available. I still have my Meerkat Movie app

    Back later xx
