    Good morning all, another grey day here, not even really daylight yet

    We still have a stack of 5 Beanz Not even going to look at the date on them, if they are OK when I open them then they get used.

    Doesn't help that OH is the only one that eats them, and I tend to make sure he has them on a badminton night

    Only just threw out the 1p premium biscuits, in the hard blue cardboard boxes with lids, maybe from an Easter promo ? Horrible they were, even when fresh.

    And still got 'quite a few' tins of Reloaded, when there was a MOC with overage - don't think I ever drunk one ?

    Oh, and some of the breakfast biscuit things - Kellogg's Special K Moments ? From a Boots MOC I think.

    And actually only just threw out the last of the Finish DW stuff, the automatic rotating gadget (Quantumatic ?) c 2011 DTD days, worked out at -15p with a 5 MOC on top. Never really worked properly, and went stale in the end.

    Hmmm, I even think I have a tub of Betty Crocker Pancake mix in there somewhere (-24p each, with a MOC on the side too)

    Really must stop buying stuff just because it was cheap

    Goodnight AJ....and you take care of yourself

    Just been reading about your sad news too Rose.....sorry to hear about your sons cat. I found our last cat Chloe run over just outside the house and I have to admit that I was really traumatised by it. It took me ages to get it all out of my head.

    So very upsetting.

She used to show him her dolls and point to the TV to get him to watch with her.
    They were very much part of the family unit and I know my son especially is heartbroken as Max was his boy. I tried to post a pic but cant seem to copy them from FB or Instagram.
    I am not a great one for pets myself but have to admit I cried a lot last night for Max and for them.

When you get to 5000 points you receive a 5 voucher which you can then use to "buy" the next lot. Some people getting them for food banks

    Warning offers have been changed, no points on small cans beans, soup down to 100 check Signage

Have to say my shopping thing went very quiet last year when I was out of home for 4 months and a lot of my stash is outside in plastic boxes. I do however have a lot of Fairy and Ariel from Waitrose from the my picks and Pepsi max from the same. Have been having a lot of success with woopsies last 2 weeks and freezers are bulging. Took out some lovely lamp chops last night ( I am on first name terms with butcher in W and get some great meat bargains ) and they are in slow cooker making t for Mum , OH and grandaughter.

    Does anyone with an iPad know how to stop email addresses defaulting to just the one eg if you have two email addresses for amazon it always defaults to one as though it remembers it. Thanks

    Fortunatley only 2 Q accounts

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    Managed to link my phone to the wifi here but forgot my name password

    Hopefully the person I sold my useless IKEA cutlery too will turn up, very heavy. The knives are triangular shaped so you can't spread anything & the forks have fat prongs so you can't stab a soft sausage

    Just coming on to post in M this morning, the soups had 100pt SELs, beans had no points SELs at all (were there yesterday), and I wanted a couple of custard, but the shelf was bare.

    Looks like it's pretty much over unless you buy these items anyway.

    Didn't bother trying the beans today as bought a couple yesterday and we tried last night.. a bit watery and not as tasty as regular own brands.
