    Cracking deal!!
    You know, went to order these, read all the posts, added to basket....then thought, do I need them? I have about 4/5 similar pens, they all work, and have had them for about 5 years, so not running out soon. Didnt order.

    I have to admit DM, I did the same. In a way, it's a flaw in their own design, they're too good and last so long that no one needs to buy more!

    WI Bingo tonight. Last year their prizes were home cooked Christmas cakes & mince pies.
    So we looked forward to this years evening.

    We won a basket of out of date condiments - I can't even give them to the food bank

    If we're talking mint sauce and the like, I'm fairly sure mine are out of date and I'm still standing, but I wouldn't donate them as prizes!

    Morning paw sniffers

    Im looking out at the field beyond ours. Its a lake

    Are we all completing our lists for the Small Shops promotion?

    Ive found a shop that sells Nigellas dressing gown

    I looked at my pre prepared list and had 32 outlets. Two transactions at each. 640 spend and 320 credit.

    Then I came to my senses

    Do I really need all that stuff?

    Anyway to cut a long story short. I have a very lean , mean, fighting machine list now at the ready. Mainly butchers

    Good morning, nippy out there, bit of a frost, lovely clear sky though.

    Had a delivery a few weeks ago - text to say they would be here between 11.14 and 11.44 - looked out at 11.10 - driver outside so I opened the , he came with the parcel but we had to stand and chat for 4 mins as he was not allowed to scan the parcel and take my signature until the specified time???? He said sometimes he is sitting outside a house for over half an hour. Now, that's fine if somebody isn't in until the time quoted, but blinking heck, whose going to complain if their parcel comes early??

    Got annoyed with an Argos delivery man one time, he started coming round to our garages and parking up for half an hour to an hour at a time, we have a dire shortage of parking as it is without extra parking, and it is a private parking area, so complained to Argos and informed them that there was plenty of parking, including Lidl car park (1.5 hours parking with no obligation to shop there!). He was obviously waiting between deliveries, never quite understand the idea that you can't deliver early.

    We are contributing a M&S dressing gown and smellies set this year, looks so expensive, they are not to know we got it free from the glitch

    So 11:40 decided I had better order from Argos using the 2 5 off codes that expired at 11:59pm according to the emails to find they have already stopped working. Not pleased, false advertising, trading standards.

    Hope you are going to complain, they should have a record of the codes being rejected. Not as if they can turn around and say it was GMT, as we are on GMT.

    We've got marker pens, not Sharpies though, always strike me as rather expensive for what they are.

    The best thing we have for writing on any surface is a "space pen"!
