    A little help please

    I am seriously thinking about an android phone. Can I link it to o2 later and get their offers through next year or until it stops

    Ok it’s a reasonable outlay but would be happy to call it my Christmas as it will bring me joy (ken Marie )

    If I could retrade it back later then that would be good too as I have other Visa cards I could register. You will see I know I will have more time on my hands

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Morrisons. They were showing 13 label for me on Wednesday - I don't know whether two, now three, days later they will be the same (could have put them up for weekend shoppers or they might now remain at 13 after going cheaper since Black Friday).

    Sorry for the delay - I was making sure I wasn't going mad and had got the same size from store on Wednesday as the one that was saying 15 before. Yep, I have it as 10L.

    I'll try it tonight, if I like it I'll fetch more.

    Hope Mr TS enjoyed his promise!

    3dogs, hope yo are feeling better soon xxx

    Waitrose has been kind and sent me vouchers... whoop whoop.

    Now what to buy

    OH is annoying me. I organised mum to be looked after by my sister today so that we can spend the day together. Apparently spending the day together means watching rugby and then football.

    I went shopping for 2 small light bulbs, expecting them to be 50p each. Spent 4, seems there are new rules and they all low energy and long lasting or some nonsense.

    No the till will only see the price they scan at towards your conditional spend unfortunately.

    It's only offers and discounts it doesn't see like 342, BOGOF, 3 for 10 etc and your PYO discount.

    You can help your spends buy adding the most expensive newspaper, the magazine and hot drink to your shop though. HTHs
