    I also find London trips daunting - not the train down, London itself, the constant noise and traffic, starting with crossing Eiston station itself - the underground is the worst though.
    But if I had to do it reguarly or for any length of time I would toughen up and be less country mouse

    Londoners also seem oblivious to how expensive things are. prices that make us gasp with horror, they just shrug off - Eldest child is a prime example of this.

    I cannot adjust to the fact no one says hello, or talks to other people in the street (well I cannot stop myself!)

    Savvysal...just wanted to say my thoughts are with you. I don't chat on here other than glitchy stuff but I wanted you to know you made a massive difference to me and my family, especially when I first started this crazy glitchy shopping life. The wombles you posted back then were a godsend to me. So sorry to hear your news x

    I've been out today, over to Poole and Christchurch, and have just caught up to find Savvy Sal's dreadful news. Devastated is the word I'd use. Not telling you what word I'd use to describe Cancer A hateful word. A hateful disease. It has affected so many. It has ended the lives of so many. No more words ..................

    CoS heads up.

    Free Maltsmiths IPA and Pilsner beer, buy in A or M.

    Should be £1.65 A v £1.50 M each if you are doing an APG (and if they still match)

    Like you say, too early to call, they may just go to rollback after the morning update. Still bit dear for us Okay to use up/renew existing APGs.

    Naked Noodles Ramen packet soups ending, 3 for £1, but no comparisons, same with the Cypressa Lemon Dressing.

    Could be small apg on the Dunn's River Seasoning 2 for £1.50 but Morries comparison. Chicken Seasoning, All purpose and Jerk. Can only find link for two on mysupermarket maybe because Jerk showing OOS. Works out around 49p each after APG.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle-661172_2296699.html

    Here's the Heinz bundle, should compare to Waitrose and Morries 4 for £3.00 offer, unless soups go onto rollback. Could be good for fillers for some of the 3 for 2 offers in Waities.

    Tick tock wait and see

    Good morning everyone.

    So sorry to hear your news savvy sal. It was your shops that introduced me to wombling, saving me a great deal of £ over the years. Very sad, my thoughts are with you and your family.

    Would the maltsmiths work out free or 35p. I bought some last night and snapped my receipt for cos but it is not shown as pending in the receipts section although my claim 12 times was showing as reduced to 4, as I bought 8. Not had any emails from cos to confirm receipt. Has anyone else had a problem with cos?

    Morning all - where is this storm we are supposed to be having or has it been and gone - still murky and raining here.

    Regarding last nights discussion regarding treats. Everyone is unique earning their money from many sources and we all have a different attitude to money and spending - some are savers and some are strugglers, some are scrimpers and some are scrooges - what one person might consider a nice little pick me up someone else might think of as a wanton extravagance of the worst order.

    I am of the camp that if you want something badly enough you will eke out every penny to help reach my target.

    but we are all very different which makes the Elite very special.
