    Well its been a strange day but my decision has been made

    I am really struggling with back pain which consultant says there is not much they can do. Thats fine and it will be less problematic if I dont have to be at work ��

    On Monday the owner was in a foul mood , again, and decided to vent at me. I have decided to play his game for two weeks as we get a Christmas bonus which I will process on 15 December then I am off. I will retire.

    It is good to be able to do that.

    A3 arrived and easy to set up, thank you for the suggestion. Spare Freedomp sim installed and ready to go .

    If a payg sim has 10 top up applied as part of the sale, and is it registered in my name and activated like a pay monthly sim or could I sell it and whoever activates it will get 10?

    Thank you

    T recce for pork joints mentioned as potential dtd last night.

    Half price joints are special 1kg packs brought in so no dtd .

    Pork loin joint reduced 5 to 4 per kg so potential dtd but my store has yellow stickers .

    Shoulder joint reduced 50p per kg, price on label but yellow stickers.

    Other stores may offer a different opportunity.

    'Like Apple Pay, Android Pay can be used anywhere you see the now ubiquitous contactless payments logo. Think places like Pret, McDonalds,Tesco and a seemingly growing number of pubs across the country. It's also supported across the entire TFL network, including all London tubes and buses.'
    Even found a video of it being used in teskies

    Well that was lucky. I did two shops earlier, one against M and one against T. On one of them I bought Bakewell Slices and Country Slices and the mix and match against M wasn't picked up. It compared against M at 1.60 each. However, all was well as I was comparing against T on that shop and they got 1 each there.

    On the other shop, against M, I bought Bakewell Slices and Almond Slices and the M mix and match was picked up.

    1x Mr Kipling Almond Slices (6pk) 1.00 1.00
    1x Mr Kipling Bakewell Slices (6pk) 1.00 1.00

    (But only due to the M mix and match being picked up on the right shop. Almond and Bakewell don't quite work against T as Almond are full price in T. As mentioned above, Bakewell and Country are 1 each in T one of each doesn't work against M. This suggests two Bakewell Slices packs might work against M but two Country Slices probably return full price each or else they work separately but have been put in a different offer from the Bakewell Slices on the system.)

    4x Crosse & Blackwell Best of British Winter Vegetable Soup (400g) 4.28 3.00

    1x ASDA Smart Price 10 Fish Fingers (250g) 0.75 0.60
    Very strange how they have suddenly got 60p for M (unless all my Ms are hiding a price reduction back to their original price from me). I suspect this is now available all of half a day and will update to 65p tomorrow.

    1x Cadbury Swiss Gateau (each) 2.50 2.75

    I guess you can't have everything. You win some and you lose some. I managed to get about 3p off A's price, but not for 1.80 - would have been better to have bought one in M for 2. However, I couldn't find them in any of my Ms earlier. I know - I should open my eyes (probably looking in the wrong aisle, maybe I should be concentrating on the Christmas aisle as they say "festive" on them, probably the only difference to regular ones available all the rest of the year, and I did have a limited number of Ms). I suspect the 47p extra cost is less than the cost of travelling to another M.

    I bought four of the Crosse & Blackwell (not because I thought the mix and match was risky but because it is the only variety I really like) and one Heinz soup for some reason. Same comparison on that against T.

    This time my shop vs T fully worked. I should shop trying comparisons against M.

    I live on the opposite of Glasgow from you so maybe once you're free we can meet up. I'm about the same age, retired but no state pension yet

    Hope you can last for the next 2 weeks!!

    I finally got Android Pay working after switching the phone off and switching back on again . 1 free coke and 9 prize draw entries after all that effort! Better than nothing but I expect a much better return on my investment over the days ahead .
