    Good evening elite,

    AP update:

    I managed to spend 8 worth of Marky sparky GF/crap coupons/Wierdy money off, on foodie bits that were required, its a bit hard to move with them as you can/cant/ Im not sure use them on anything sale, so the 5 and 3 worked together.

    Spent another 3 marky one on some nuts.

    The Greggs ones work with no issue, although I would like to know how to put them all on one, same with Costa.

    Today I won:
    X2 3 m&s
    X1 5 m&s

    I have a Santander that worked a dream on there cash point outside the branch, so that saves me buying carrier bags galore.

    Although Im winning well and its a bit of fun, the M&S ones have left me disappointed and are a let down with how they dont just flow, I have a few more to spend aswell now

    WOMBLING:
    2.56 in apg
    70p in boots points

    I bought a 1s worth of wrapping paper from b&m, they definitely take the crown for Christmas sales this year, amazing reductions and quite quick after Christmas unlike other stores.

    I did well at woopsie oclock last night as it was just me and an older lady, very civilised, lots of salmon up for grabs for 45p, and loads of bagged pastries for 10p which the lady reducing them let me choose what went in the bags, so pan au chocs for brekkie this week as they will last a few days and Im not fussy


    Hope everyone else has had a good day, sorry for the long breakdown, just trying not to lurk so often.

    I cant find the cheap phone on o2 website?

    so in theory if I got this cheap 02 android phone with the 10 credit could I use my new Amex gold rewards card as my designated card - my name and a different email to register?

    have to read back now to see what I need to do.

    My Costas that expired 2nd Jan are showing as expired in the app even though I bought the 45p lindors which gave receipts showing they had another year of validity. I wonder if they are actually expired? Will be annoyed if they are as these were the 10 ones

    The dates didnt update in the app but that may not mean they did not extend.

    The only way to check is to ask them to check instore or contact CS.

    think it needs to be my mantra too!
    We were generally guests of others over Christmas, but do seem to have a lot of 'not good for you' stuff to get through. Still have an untouched Christmas cake, boxes of chocs and a mountain of cheese.

    Saying that I have spent 46.93 on groceries so far this year
    but have one freezer full and have started using the second one again. (and a cupboard with a lot of biscuits!)
    Currently have a huge slow cooker full of broth simmering nicely and 4 large tubs of carrot and turnip (swede for you southerners) cooling to go in the freezer, courtesy of whoopsies.
    By my reckoning we should need nothing but milk and a little fruit and veg for the rest of the month.

    Hope everything goes well for you re the op... that's an awfully long time.

    I suppose it was inevitable, the cancellation but you have been preparing yourself mentally for it for months so it puts you back to square one now, leaves you in limbo.
    Possibly now you will be given something last minute if a person cancels and then it will all happen in a rush.
    But hospitals seem to be full of the WVB so not an ideal time to have to go in anyway.

    What was happening with work - were you having to take unpaid leave for the surgery and recovery time?

    If so at least it will give you a few more weeks to build up the food stockpiles and it will take you closer towards another payday.

    Yes I was taking unpaid leave. I did make a few enquiries to see wrre there any benefits I could claim whilst I was off. We are in a universal credifs are a so when i spoke to the correct departmentthey said speak to my employer about ssp.
    Not sure how specialised the team of surgeons are and how quickly they will get them together again. It's mind boggling how much organisastion must go into organising these things.
    I'll be honest it was the day before my birthday so at least I'll get to enjoy my birthday now

    Don’t want any as I found a load while sorting my shed out. Tia

    I’m guessing they may be 2 in asda
