    No beans for me, I still refuse to do the round trip to nearest Morries. And everyone only really likes Heinz. Talking of which on my last bottle of Tommy K.

    Isnt it odd how there always seems to be something going on on this thread.

    Just as one thing finishes, something else pops up

    Great to hear lots of people getting the beans

    Was having the conversation about xmas puds with aunt and had to explain it is only a best before date on them.

    On xmas day Mr TS got out the choice from the cupboard and said that one will have to go back in as it was still in date.

    It's very difficult leaving go isn't it.
    You have to keep telling yourself 'not my concern', but if you know people you just can't help but think of them.
    8 years on and when my assistant manager died I have had dozens of messages about it, I had to go back into work mode to organise!!
    Concentrate on eliting (SP?), it saved me in dark times.
    There is another world out there away from work, I could have gone on for another few years but I eventually played the sick card, and haven't regretted it.
    OK we can't have first class holidays in exotic climes, but I have my health, my sanity, my family and friends... what more do I need?

    I can't justify buying beans as we never eat them except in a cottage pie & I'm still using the Heinz ones from when those strange triangular shaped 5 (?) packs went very very cheap in Ts, ahem a 'few' years ago 2015 is the date on them

    I still have half a gallon left of Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce dated 2012 = tastes fine

    Have we got to the bottom of timing on droid envelopes? I was in front of two santa atms which both had it and going fromone to the other I could swipe about every 10s but if I opened a second envelope in less than about 25s I got the not available message. If I had waited an opened them later at home might it have worked ok or is it the swipes that need to be a certain time apart? Thanks

    Note I google for contactless enabled atms and the first two in said were did not work but the santa one had a contactless symbol and was.

    Was only thinking yesterday I had not managed to find a decent cracker bargain this year yet, I got the huge tubs in Sainsbobs last year but there doesn't seem to be any stock left any supermarket down here. I picked up last 2 boxes of these

    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/gb/groceries/jacobs-savours-flavours-assortment-250g

    in As for 1.50 box but they are actually better bargain if you can find them in Sainsbos.

    They are not the same as a good old cream cracker though...
