    Evening luvlies

    Had all the decs down from the loft today so theyre ready to put up first thing tomorrow. The tree usually takes me an hour, hoping to write the cards out after.

    Really enjoying reading of peeps wins on AP. I have an iPhone but DD2 recently upgraded her phone and said I could have her old android . She just needs to wipe it first then shell drop it round for me

    Thought Id mention this for ebayers, I sold something yesterday morning on eBay, quite high value, and it was collection only and my preferred payment method was cash. I received an automatic email from eBay stating I will be sending payment of ...... shortly for eBay item ..... then further down in the email it said via cash on collection. The buyer dropped me a message to make arrangements re collecting the item and I gave him my phone number.

    Last night I received a second email from eBay subject heading, congratulations your item has been sold and paid for. I thought oh well, PayPal isnt too bad as Id listed my item during the last 1 FVF offer.

    The buyer called me this morning to say he would collect on Sunday and asked if I would prefer cash or PayPal. I said the item had been paid for, he sounded surprised but said his gf may have paid for it.

    I always double check my PayPal account if I have sold something for collection only just to make sure its all gone through. Just as well I did, no payment made!

    I called the guy back and he said hed checked straight away and could see on his purchased items it hadnt been paid for.

    Dont know what eBay were playing at sending me that email. This has never ever happened to me before.

    I've just realised the 3 for 2 items won't be of as much use if you are saying you have an APG from online shopping, as those items are instore shopping. Unless you wish to pay full price in the first place - which may, as a last resort, help spend an APG and get something back with competitors being cheaper than A's full prices. However, I am sure there are better items as paying full price for straight 10% doesn't work out very well.

    How much (roughly if you don't want to reveal the exact amount) is the APG you have to spend? Unfortunately, invisible triggers can't be purchased online can they? I was going to suggest Mullers, for 3 of the spend anyway, but that won't work online either as you can't order the Christmas Bakery.

    I need to know the approx. APG amount so I know how much I have to build the shopping bill up to and also are you in Northern Ireland?

    As DM says!

    I've stopped worrying about chemicals leaching out of foil. We probably pick up more toxic metals from handling coins!
