    Some of the Bahlsen in the W offer are £1.55 and others are £1.69.

    That means they'll come back as N/A as part of the fix they made after the Ambrosia glitch

    Also there was some discussion about discounts and bank cards at the back end of August while we were still off the planet ... not sure which ones though

    Another £6 off £30 shop refused in W today again.

    It was planned to within an inch of its life. Found the Bahlsen Deloba biscuits. Found the Upbeat drink to use up my voucher. Took off £2.50 for a £2 drink. No shopmium Melon drink to be seen but stocked up on the cheap Tilda rice and made it up to the £30 before discounts with kitchen roll. The SA was having none of it. You haven't spent £30 he said.
    I'm sure it said £30 I said.

    Yes but that was before the discounts, he said.

    Well it worked last week I said.

    Well it shouldn't have, he said.

    Is it worth trying just to see if it works I said

    No he said, very firmly, you haven't spent £30.

    Fair Play.

    I hadn't

    Besides I couldn't bear to watch Mr TM squirming any longer

    I got all excited about the Boots 20points per £1 offer this weekend but when you think about it they often have the £10 off when you spend £50 don't they?

    Is it anything special or am I missing the point?

    Off to eat

    ....and try and print some vouchers

    Oh it's nice to go away....but I LOVE being back home. We ventured to Norfolk and it was wonderful. Some beautiful towns and villages.

    There's some exceptional restaurants. I ate so much one day that I felt ill Lots of champagne too We even visited Wiveton and chatted with Desmond himself

    There was a tiny shop in Burnham Market with a table outside selling off stuff for £1. I cleared every "Price" scented candle they were selling....perfect for presents......some large chunky blue ones to match our kitchen

    I forgot how delicious fresh crab is......really fresh crab

    The journey home was long. The A1/M1 is a nightmare at the moment. It took us 6 hours from door to door....not counting the hour I spent in W in Newark.....more of that to follow. Off for a quick catch up

    Hi all.

    In puerto Vallarta Mexico.

    No issues with tsunami or earthquake. The States affected are south of us and we are apparently protected by the fault lines of the banderas bay.

    We 're flying back tomorrow so may have to re route flight.
