    Good Afternoon


    I've spent morning sorting through my presents hoard to find birthday presents for 2 boys & a man this month - then realised I have to wrap Parents presents to hopefully go down with a relative in a car as no way can I carry them on train on Christmas Eve....

    This turned into a massive rejuggle of items on shelves & now I only have 1 hour before we go out to watch a Christmas play

    I was offered a gift receipt when I bought some of the gifts the other day. The SA swooped down and offered to put them through the ss till for me, I didn't dare refuse! Looking on the bar code for the gr it is the same as the original receipt so would probably show what price was paid.
    Thankyou to all that have posted it has really boosted our charities raffle this christmas.
    I am off to do the decorating bit now and drag the slightly soggy trree in from outside, you have all inspired me how organised you all are!

    Those fleece gilets are too snug - I got a 16 last year and I'm a 14.

    So I tried an 18 and the arm opening was down by my lower ribs.

    Have we worked out if you do need to wait a minute between shops on Android pay? I bought 8 separate items yesterday but only got 6 parcels.

Last night I got ahead of myself and didnt open in between as so thought so had read you could open them all later? Anyway, the app crashed and no parcels showing .

    I also had the error you had (there is the message about hitting a limit, but a second message about no parcels available at the moment or something too?).

    A minute gap and revealing the prize before moving on may be the safest approach - we are new to this, some of the experienced Elite can advise us .

    rejected apg
    I have a problem which I hope you can advise me what to do. I was paying my shopping today with 2 apg coupons from bayilis shops. Both apg were for 19 pounds. I was on SS and one was accepted the other one rejected. Then all AS came and the manager also, and they were quite rude saying this coupons are not valid because I'm getting my all money back. They wanted to take that apg but i didnt let them. What do you advise me to do? Is there anyone I can complain or should I just try with the same apg later in the week?
    Bdw, thank you for all your help in here, I'm managing my family thanks to you all.

    Good morning all, can anyone recommend any of the red wines in the 6 for 25 offer in Sada please as I am not a wine drinker. Also I have bottles of wine (cheapies) that are now about 2-3 years old, can I serve them up at a forthcoming gathering or might my guests quietly pour them down the sink. TIA.

    Afternoon all
    No post office offer on either my BA Amex or DH's gold charge card
    Off to have a go at toiletries in a minute, wish me luck.
    MIL is still in hospital but making good progress. The last 11 Irish relatives flew home yesterday, so everything seems very quiet now.

    I've never really known what shaking with anger would feel like until Friday evening. I went to MIL's house to do dinner for the hordes. Pulled into a space in front of her house. There were another three or four cars coming up the road behind me, with no room for the one car coming down the road to pass until the ones behind had gone up. Woman in car coming down started hurling abuse at me as I got out of the car, about how selfish I was to pull in like that. I pointed out that I was merely parking as I lived there (ok small white lie) and she just went on and on, culminating in her calling me a selfish f****** b**** I don't think I've ever been so angry in my life. My parking when I did meant that the cars behind, which she had to wait for anyway, maybe took ten seconds longer to pass before she could go down the road. She spent longer than that yelling.

    The only reason I know of that they get rejected on the system is when you have mistyped the barcode on the voucher or receipt (or if the voucher has already been used would cause it to be rejected too) - others may have different experience.

    I would try it again in a different store.
