I had 2 orders done on the 13 and 14 June (the Beckham stuff) and had evouchers for £22.25 and £32.95. They didn't appear in my account until over a week after the order dates so the expiry dates were sometime next week . I can't remember the exact date but I certainly checked the expiry dates before I went on holiday to make sure I could use them when I got home. I did use £25.20 worth of them before I went away and this left a balance of exactly £30 still to spend. And they have gone up in smoke !

    How long does it take for evouchers to be refunded to your payment card. I got a c&c 29th June and some of the goods were not available so the shopping came to -£14.

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes, sorry can't quote them individually as not got time ♥

    Yes, shop was good today, we had a reasonable day sales wise and had LOADS of donations brought in, including approx 16, yes 16, things called 'ironing boards' - no I don't know what they are for either but they will sell. Lady's hubbie text her from US base auction and asked if she wanted a spare ironing board, as they were American and larger than UK ones. she said yes, and he got one ................ to find that he had bought one LOT of the things Anyway, I got cards and texts and lovely flowers and some money from my Big Sis to treat myself with. No card from my Big Bro though, second year running

    Been on FB for our Saturday Raffle which I haven't done for a few months as not been on FB much, and it was great fun and I won a lovely jazzy dog pic cushion

    Treats tonight for my birthday include a 2 litre bottle of Pepsi Max , packet of Party Rings, tub of Vegan Ice Cream and I am going to have a lovely 'picky tea/supper' a-la-bubbs, just bits and pieces I like from Morries to help me to £40 spend for 5000 more points

    Its not down sizing, its still a 2 bed house but this is a modern one, 3/4 of the stuff is not hers, its her late dh's , but because the house went through quite quickly there has not been time to sort it all and its the emotional aspect too she has to deal with

    Good evening Elite.

    Hoping everyone is warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not so.

    Apologies for being AWOL all week. Last week of term at school has been so hectic! But I'm still loving the job.

    Which is the best location for train station or cruise ports please, the Premier Inn City Centre or Travelodge Southampton Centre? TIA

    Edit: Or I can just pay a few quid more and stop at macdonald botley park hotel & spa, which is very nice, but last time I managed to blag a free coach to the port, not sure how much a taxi would cost from there.
