    I now see it was some Pilgrim's Choice cheese that someone had mentioned earlier not Seriously Strong. The Pilgrim's Choice were/are 2 vs N/A but the Seriously Strong I had is comparing 2 vs 2 M. So that would seem the better of the two brands. I was just trying to find what I posted that I still have yet to do with the M list, as I didn't write it down on any of my papers. I have found my earlier post and it seems I am just to check if I have the Curly Wurlys on the list and check the status regarding the VO5 Matts etc.- whether they are in the 3 for 2 or whether they are off? (I didn't see them, against anywhere, on 3Dogs' list anymore?)

    I noticed someone mentioned the Always Discreet Incontinence Pads as being on the 3 for 2 and also was looking to see if that was vs M. I don't know which versions this is - is this the ones at individual 2.40 in A and, therefore, at least some of them, potentially vs 2 each for M (and T)? If it is, as it doesn't seem too much of a difference, it's fwiw and they aren't currently going onto the list. If it's some others, then I haven't been able to identify which specific products were being mentioned and therefore I am unable to put them onto the list as I don't know what you mean, so I don't know what the items are that I should be putting onto the list. If someone knows what is being referred to, please let me know.

    I have no clue about the VO5s in A. They are still on my list and are the pastes, gums, gels, mattes etc. - mainly those that are showing individual price of 4 for A online. Are they on or off the 342 offer in A? TIA.

    I assume this is an attempt to target T. Today is the last day I would try this as the T offer is currently due to run until only 5th December. I can add Royal Game and also the Cocka-leekie Soup that this website doesn't like if I put an additional hyphen there. Most of them that A has, I don't know if it's all of them, should work but, yes, you do need to check T's website to try to make sure. The Waities 4 for 3 offer, for those that don't shop in Northern Ireland, is due to run until 26th December - so, although there may not be many as good other items vs W as there are vs T, maybe more time to run vs W (if T doesn't roll over - if it does, I would avoid the one/two days vs T during which it may lose the offer online in an effort to trip me up again that I am wary of falling for these days - if you are just buying five soups, including the trigger, and four different 10p sweets, it shouldn't matter a great deal if T changes prices online as it should still hit W - might just lose a few insignificant pence on the sweets being N/A - on shops not done in Northern Ireland).

    Are you leaving me to fill the prices in? As you have posted the W comp.. I know - everyone was ignoring this, which I was for a short while, but I have now failed to do so.

    My additions above are roughly correct aren't they? Is that what the result is? (I have not bothered with the total or the final calculation.) EDIT: That doesn't look quite right, as, according to that, the APG has total M price of 5. Anyway, I don't know, it's too late at night for me to think about it now... EDIT 2: Or maybe it isn't. They don't have Stunning Shine? But my prices still don't seem to add up to the figure they have. I'm out by 10p - is it something silly like the prices on most of the sweets being a little higher than I think? Anyway...

    I will see you all later - my M list is updated. I now have the few extra minutes() that it now takes every time I finish an updating session to save the list elsewhere in case our thread disappears again. It most likely won't go - and, whether it did or did not, I will have probably been spending more time in total saving new versions of it repeatedly 'just in case' than I would in retrieving an old list from somewhere and putting the stuff back on in the event it goes. Anyway... goodnight, see you later.

    Evening folks Absolutely shattered so will not be updating list tonight, though I have copied info from posts

    I dropped my two woofers at Joy's for boarding at 10am then drove over to the pick up point at M1/Leicester, getting there at noon. Hung around with a couple picking up another of Juliana's dogs, sweet short legged Toby !!!9829;. I got in touch with transporter about 1pm just as messages came through that dog van would arrive at 3pm Oh well, a trip up the road to a small Asda and then Morries for diesel to fill up using my 10p a litre coupon .... which I had forgetten to pick up off coffee table so just put in enough to get me back

    When I got back to pick up point, van had just arrived. I helped the couple get their Toby sorted and then got Rosie settled in crate in back of my car. Drove home and carried her into my house for just over an hour then drove up to Joy's with her. Saw her settled there then went to village hall we had our show in last weekend, as meeting the ladies, and a gent, for a short fund raising meeting and an evening of fun with free jukebox. Our choices were making everyone laugh Home just after 11 pm

    And I'm out tomorrow - help So, let me introduce Rosie, 11.5 months old, rescued from a terrible shelter with her brother and sister back on 14th February. She is very frightened but settled down to cuddles at my house beofore I took her to Joy's

    In crate in my car:



    Am I allowed to sit here? I'll just stay very still and no-one will notice me



    Show me the map again Aunty Susan of how far I have travelled I don't have to go back there, do I?



    She is very skinny so needs filling out and strengthening up, but she is a beautiful dog, lovely markings, and eyes !!!9829;

    Good morning everyone. Happy Sunday. i agree TM, there is so much to do at the minute. Still not got any toiletries but am very temped with the Ausie - thanks Josie for the shop to copy.

    Did my first big gift shop yesterday & got 5 shops. This one did not work and I am certain I bought the correct one:

    Adidas Pure Game Trio Gift Set (Greeny yellow) - DID NOT WORK SATURDAY

    Came back n/a against T. Hope this helps someone. I now have loads of gifts for raffles, etc and will wrap a few for various Xmas appeals. Thanks everyone for test shops and 3Dogs for the list. Going back for more today to use my new large APGs again.

    For the B&H gifts, i was buying 1 of each then a 10 mens dove washbag. This allowed me to have a little overage for my fillers and also gave me male pressies for next year. Also saved on fillers as well.

    Off to feed my Xmas cakes now.

    Morning elite, going with ds2 to Gordale garden center on the Wirral to look at the Christmas displays later, they are meant to be lovely.
    Think it's time to have my first mince pie later, do I buy or make? I've got a couple of jars of luxury mince meat in the cupboard just the inclination is missing!

    Evening folks Absolutely so will not be updating list tonight, though I have copied info from posts

    I dropped my two woofers at Joy's for boarding at 10am then drove over to the pick up point at M1/Leicester, getting there at noon. Hung around with a couple picking up another of Juliana's dogs, sweet short legged Toby !!!9829;. I got in touch with transporter about 1pm just as messages came through that dog van would arrive at 3pm Oh well, a trip up the road to a small Asda and then Morries for diesel to fill up using my 10p a litre coupon .... which I had forgetten to pick up off coffee table so just put in enough to get me back

    When I got back to pick up point, van had just arrived. I helped the couple get their Toby sorted and then got Rosie settled in crate in back of my car. Drove home and carried her into my house for just over an hour then drove up to Joy's with her. Saw her settled there then went to village hall we had our show in last weekend, as meeting the ladies, and a gent, for a short fund raising meeting and an evening of fun with free jukebox. Our choices were making everyone laugh Home just after 11 pm

    And I'm out tomorrow - help So, let me introduce Rosie, 11.5 months old, rescued from a terrible shelter with her brother and sister back on 14th February. She is very frightened but settled down to cuddles at my house beofore I took her to Joy's

    In crate in my car:



    Am I allowed to sit here? I'll just stay very still and no-one will notice me



    Show me the map again Aunty Susan of how far I have travelled I don't have to go back there, do I?



    She is very skinny so needs filling out and strengthening up, but she is a beautiful dog, lovely markings, and eyes !!!9829;
