    Good morning all
    Popped in to say thank you for my birthday wishes, and to say belated happy birthday to pk04. Didn't realise that I shared my day with another elite member
    I had a lovely day with friends and family, lots of cards, prezzies and good wishes from my friends in Antigua. Thankfully they are all safe, and not too much damage. Poor little Barbuda next door has been decimated, so sad as it was a beautiful place. VT and I are going out to Antigua soon, so will see first hand.

    Life is very busy at the moment, and I'm still trying to run down my stash, so litle in the way of shopping being done. I feel I don't have anything helpful to post, so lurk in the background.

    Hope you are all well and happy.
    Hugs to all in need.

    Morning elite, is anyone having problems with shopprize? I am getting my daily bonus but for the last week my receipts won't upload. I just get the message that points will be added when I get internet connection but I don't. Shopprize C's don't seem able to help. I can't uninstall app as the app isn't available to return install any more. I intensely dislike missing the money earning opportunity
    Off to Oswestry on Saturday (please don't laugh at the reason) to watch my strapping farmer cousin do Morris dancing! It's also a get together of other cousins that I usually only see at funerals. Spent a fair bit of time in Whittington and Oswestry as a child as mum grew up there.
    No disrespect to any Morris dancing participants or fans intended

    Have a good day

    And precisely what is wrong with Morris Dancing, it is a wonderful British tradition.

    Sitting here feeling very guilty, wondering if we will still be able to go to Dominican Republic for our holiday next month. What about the poor souls that do not have the choice, hope their homes survive Apparently St Martin has been more or less destroyed

    Morning all. Only two big steps till the weekend.
    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.

    I feel so sorry for them all.

    I saw on the news there's another one, called Jose, but hopefully that one is miles out at sea away from inhabited islands.

    Did anyone do the Matalan offer yesterday? I just couldn't find anything I needed.

    And then it had to happen... DD rang me after work, she'd been in there lunchtime and spent £30 on essentials... wish I'd known

    Good morning all....

    I've been watching the news coverage of the hurricane...and whilst we have been to Antigua many times we have never quite got over to Barbuda....it was a beautiful island and one of those small ones that make you feel very special to be on....and also probably next on our list to visit.
    so sad

    Welcome back from your travels Mrs 3 Dogs albeit very busy with your visitors....what an emotional time for you all but one that will no doubt cement friendships for a long time.

    Yes I did my order just after 11 - it is on my list of rewards and its tracked but I am still not convinced that I did mine on time. When I read the rules and regs it said there was only 500 so as it was the dark side its doubtful.
    Probably too late by the time I read the rules.
    I got 3 packs of undies for £15 (and five in each pack) - so a good time to sort the drawer out again.
    6 days until I know if I qualified in time.

    I went via the main computer and looking at the main page I've also got the 'do 2 offers' get an Amazon e voucher - have to investigate this today - something very cheap I can click and collect or I could order loo paper from superdrug ...

    I upload a receipt and it takes forever and then comes up with 'upload failed' but I cant risk doing the same receipt a 2nd time. Sometimes the coins noise comes up afterwards - no idea if its that receipt or the previous one catching up. This happens virtually every time - you can imagine the air is blue.
    I tend to do shopix first - todays receipts, 2ndly receiptpig and then lastly shoprize as it takes so long
