    Last time I needed carpets (after builders had left) I used a small local place recommended by friends. They were actually not helpful and I regret the quality of the carpet I now have in my spare room. The one in the lounge hasn't worn very well either. But for the lino in the bathroom and the carpet in the bedroom I used Carpet Right and was really impressed by the advice I was given and the service and fitting. Obviously you need to go there when they have a sale and my impression is that they often have one. But I didn't know about the price match so thank you so much for that.

    Glad youve had good experience with Carpet Right Picasso. Yes, ours was 50% off in the sale. I didnt know about the price match until I noticed it on their website, includes beds too

    Not had time to catch up, not good day for droid, only 5 MS , 3 MS and a coke.
    Went at lunchtime, wonder if it only has a set amount of prizes, so busy times maybe not best to shop, will try to test tomorrow.

    I'm really tired so am off to bed. I bought a new freezer for the garage on Monday from Curry's. Their website was playing up and I was rather annoyed to have to phone to change the delivery date. But I am now delighted with them. There's a website which earlier today confirmed that it was being delivered tomorrow (they had not sent me an email to confirm the new date and I'd got worried) and now it is telling me it is coming tomorrow afternoon. I'm very pleased as I'd intended to clear a space for it in the garage and was worried it would turn up at 7 am. If it really turns up when they say it will, I shall be a very happy bunny. It helps that the webpage is actually rather pretty!! (Sorry...)

    Goodnight all. Looking forward to even cheaper A gift sets, if I understand things correctly. I shall stockpile for charity...
