    There is currently an issue in stores which have had a till update elaine.

    The self service tills are not recognising the apg and messsage comes up unsupported barcode. The SA should be able to manually put through the voucher but in some cases this freezes up the till.

    Errant son was always in the wars. In junior school I was terrified of the head teacher, convinced she had a hot line to social services so I often had to send him into school with letters of explanation when he had run full pelt into a lamp post, the oven door or knocked his head on the coffee table etc

The third time we had been to a&e, he was going through triage when he said to the nurse 'just how many times do I need to come here with broken bones before you realise it is child abuse'. The nurse went pale, and when I told her to 'slap him for being cheeky' she went grey!

    He gave the game away when he started laughing!

    I'm back, all caught up and have updated the list on post 20 as far as I can. What I have done is started a new list above the old, putting those items people have found since end Aug in red and then the old list, minus some that still compare in red list bove, is still there below. If anyone could confirm what needs to be deleted from old list or moved from old to new, I would appreciate it. I have hardly opened up my laptop in last two weeks

    not sure if mrs 3 dogs is around but this coupon might be of use to her

    I had a fantastic few days 18th to 21st August meeting my Romanian Rescuer Juliana and her sister Luiza. A fellow member of our team had shown them round London doing the tourist bit for a few days after they arrived. I then spent some time with them, taking them to Somerset and then to West Yorkshire where the other member of our small team had arranged for several adopters to bring their dogs, previously rescued by Juliana, to meet her and we had a fabulous day. Then on 21st I took them back to Luton to catch their plane home to Romania. Plan had been to detour to allow them to meet my Berry Bear and Noela again, but in the end we didn't have time They both thoroughly enjoyed their trip over and everyone enjoyed meeting them after all our work on FB over several years
