    So that explains the spare bedroom - he must be taking in lodgers

    Still no sign of him

    I've just called in on one of our neighbours who wasn't in this morning. She said "do you mean poppet"

    It turns out that Oz has been visiting them for ages. He cries at their French doors until they feed him. I was sceptical until they produced photos of him, which made me tearful.

    I just want him home now

    He might have a few places like that, so here's hoping he is home soon.

    When mine died of old age, I discovered he had at least 3 different part time 'homes.' One of them he went to mid-morning for a second breakfast, eaten outside on top of their coal bunker, another place had a wood burner, apparently he used to show up most days around 4pm, have a dish of treats in front of the fire and then sleep it off for an hour

    The third place belonged to an old lady who became a good friend, it started after I heard her complaining in the local shop about the price of cat food to feed her 'stray' cat - which turned out embarrassingly to be mine - so I started taking her supplies so it wouldn't cost her anything. She became his regular holiday home, which was handy.

    Todays shop which was mostly to use up some low value wombled APGS - mainly useful fillers items but it took most of my apg away.

    In real money I spent £2.81 but of that £1.25 will come back via shopimum and it was a useful receipt for snapping purposes.

    2x Walkers Salt & Vinegar Crisps (6x25g) £3.00 £3.00
    1x Shloer Sparkling Red Grape Drink (750ml) £1.25 £1.20
    1.14x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) £0.23 £0.82
    1x ASDA Easy Cook Long Grain Brown Rice (1kg) £1.19 £1.49
    0.23x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) £0.14 £0.13
    1x ASDA Semi Skimmed Milk (4pt) £0.99 £1.00

    1x ASDA Smartprice 6 Eggs (6pk) £0.70 £0.70
    Comparison total (compared products only) £10.54 £11.54

    My bananas were reduced - should they have matched full priced ones from Mr T?? I thought sada disregarded reduced items - my reduced oranges don't show.
    [B]1.14x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) £0.23 £0.82

    Has anyone got an email that I can message Sada - the last time I had an issue they just put me through to the store I had problems with, not very helpful.
