    For your information:
    Asda Price Guarantee comparisons are based on prices correct as of date of delivery (online shoppers) or date of purchase (in store customers).
    Where a product comparison price is N/A, either, a) the independent agencies that collect the price data have not found an equivalent product at the named competitor, based on the comparison criteria (see Terms & Conditions) ; or b) the product is part of a particular promotion which makes it difficult for a fair comparison to be made (see Terms & Conditions).
    Comparisons are limited to a maximum of 10 items per product and 10Kg for items sold by weight.
    All prices displayed in red are net of any multibuys savings or discounts. For example items that are 1.47 each which are part of a "2 for 2.50" promotion will be shown at 1.25 each where the customer buys the required quantity. They may therefore be a different price to that shown on your receipt or delivery note.

    As for Montezuma chocolates, in my day that was when we gave people laxative chocolates

    As for lego, we still have a out half a ton of it in the attic, and I have my own lego to make up the Starship Enterprise, and the lego sourced from the same guy that made the lego Christmas tree at St Pancras in 2011, and the instructions off the internet

    I've just bought myself one of these for my daily walks. This colour is only 1.32 inc P&P. Not sure I'll have the nerve to wear it, but would be great for keeping warm whilst wombling too.

    My DD is a happy bunny, very pleased with 6 x popcorn multipacks which I gave her for the children's next movie night, and a Dove washbag which is not only handy for her 2-day work conference later this week, but even more useful as she finished her last deodorant this morning.

    Parcels posted, just two heavy ones left to drop off at a collection point tomorrow. I had to get extra strong outer wraps, a roll of dark blue, heavy duty ''rubble bags'' from HB was perfect for this (99p.)

    One card left to get, and it needs to be special.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.
