    May be known already but with Droid Pay in T. If you scan your phone before clicking finish and pay, payment does not go through ... but the envelope appears .

    I messed up a couple of times scanning before paying ... .

    I did get a no parcels available message a couple of times though .

    3 Gweggs and 10 restaurant voucher today.

    Now E has gone to bed, I can post a puzzle

    On Christmas Day I start giving away all the gifts that my true love sends to me, at the rate of one gift per day. Will I have any gifts left on the following Christmas Day?

    Should I go to bed?
