    I've used a few AP vouchers for MnS with no ptoblem before, but struggled today.
    I was at an MnS i've not used them in before, on SS I did a coke first that worked fine.

    Then bought a full price salad, and a reduced curry total 5.20, typed in the code and it only took 3 off! I went back and tried it again but it said it had already been used.
    SA came over and took me to another till, she said that till was playing up so put it through manually as 'Coupon Tendered'.

    I then had some festive bog rolls in another transaction, and again she put it through manually.
    Bit off putting as I don't know if these mocs will still work.

    Good morning all!
    Does anyone actually like that Serano ham?
    I really liked the look of it, so was delighted when they had tasters on offer last year, I was so disappointed, it tasted like salt, and had the texture of old boots!
    My unsophisticated pallete maybe, but just thought i would share. x

    The tree is fine and DH is really upset over what he has done. Off to garage this morning to see what they say - main concern at the moment is if the car is OK to drive. We are flying from Heathrow in a couple of weeks and if the car is off the road we are completely stuffed. This is not a good start to 2018.

    Bless isn't quite the word I was thinking of ! Anyway, car is in for repair- they reckon they can get get a bumper delivered by Monday and we can have the car back on Tuesday afternoon. So the trip to Heathrow will be OK. Luckily they had a courtesy car I could have. Cost is 750 or thereabouts - which is good news for DH as he thought it would be at least 1500.

    I have let him out of the doghouse.

    Those one4all giftcards at Viking now have a surcharge on them - it costs 104 for a 100 card

    I didn't want any, I just went for a play with their NY special offer.

    Actually thinking about it that makes sense that it just took off 3 instead of 5, the full price item was 3..

    So maybe youre right.

    Good afternoon Elite Another quiet day at home for me but I am definitely driving down to see my Portsmouth/New Forest friends early tomorrow morning till Monday



    Still in bed, grumbling tummy ache from too many nuts

    I was chatting to That Sister who has an enormous appetite now due to the steroids & has been escaping to a Ts Express for 'tuck'

    She is being picked up this afternoon to come back for weekend, another 6 RTs completed & 2 Cetuximabs

Basically my gross pay is reduced by the amount of the vouchers and so I save the tax and NI. Everything is electronic, the employer and childcare provider deals with the voucher company and I don't do anything.
