    Good Morning you lovely lot.

    I haven't posted on here in quite a while, life and all that. I'm ready to get back into glitching ways. I've had a look over the last few days and am I right in thinking that if I buy 12 x palmolive shower gels they will get me a good APG? Who do they compare to please as I couldn't see anywhere!

    Any other good glitches about?

    It's nice to be back

    and my final report from yesterday before i go and get some work done.
    confirm the 20% beer glitch still working at Tesco. My husband laughed that I was offering to buy him drink rather than nagging at him not to drink
    Also noticed signs for 25% of 6 or more wine presume it will not glitch as they have sorted it in the past

I thought that may have worked out cheaper! husbands seems to have gone up around 40 quid this year and mine has doubled........no accidents/incidents either! currently with esure AARRGGHHH doing my nut in lol

His current premium is £330 and his new one would be £264, fc with 7 yrs ncd. If he uses staff discount, the premium is £1,500.00

    It might be worth ringing up Admiral and having a conversation. We have had a multi car policy with them for years - various cars coming and going. When the quotes come in I go through the comparison websites. Then I ring Admiral up, check all the details are correct and I always get discounts applied.
    I usually ring 2 or 3 times to check various details and it seems to be only on the 3rd conversation that all of the discounts get applied.

    Actually this has made me realise one very good thing about September.
    May is house insurance month and also Sky renewal month, July is car insurance month and August is pet insurance month
    I now don't have to for the next nine months use vast amounts of time, energy, ingenuity and brain space trying to get quotes and comparisons and work out the best deals ...

    Good Morning Llovelies


    Love your thinking JTS - My Mum cleans up before the cleaner arrives

    Quiz night - 8th out of 10 teams BUT in our defence our team members didn't turn up so it was just Fourp & I ......

    Went out in open sandals & cropped trousers, felt a bit silly when my toes got cold, so I'll have to rummage & find my EMUs & long trousers
    I did find the beautiful UGGs I bought last year, too cerise pink to mess up

    Good morning Elite

    Windy and oh so cold here now. I've been busy doing nothing much apart from waving goodbye to the nurses at local hospital. More later

    Snap I hope the home front is going well, fingers are crossed for you all, a fabulous situation for all the family to be living in your own little hamlet, sort of

    I've not had a chance to read back yet but I'm on the way there soon. Are the 3 for 2 still on the go? If so, I imagine you're all out getting supplies

    Hope everyone well and keeping warm, I forgot my scarf on Tuesday and couldn't get my breath, the wind took it away


    Hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit. You're all in my thought today xx

    So last week I didn't feel too well. Couldn't put my finger on it so just rested more than usual. By lunchtime I was in hospital hooked up to one of those heart monitor things I did tell them that my heart felt fine but would they listen . Anyway, they also connected a bag thing to me, saline drip it seems I was dehydrated, very embarrassed about this as I always tell people to drink, drink drink.

    I was only in there one day and they let me home in the evening I've learnt my lesson and have made sure I've got a days worth of water in bottles in the fridge, it's just filtered tap water but it's very I don't see the point of paying water bills then buying bottled water, I'm too tight and like the taste of our water

    Ok, off for catch-up xx

    Good morning.

    Have any of you coming off the BGas Fix made decisions on who you are moving to? Although they are unknown and reviews, aren't brilliant on the energy club blurb, I am considering 1resa as it is a 12 month fix with no penalty (so I can switch again if they mess up/something cheaper comes along). Has anyone found a cashback incentive to switch or a better deal? Maybe one of the other comparison sites through TCB/Q would be a better route. My thinking is the gas and electric will come through no matter who is supplying it, and you are protected by the regulator if they mess up.
