    Take it the beans are off.

    My points were added correctly by cs.
    Only did the one shop.

    If going to M look out for the boxes of Jacobs cracker favourites, they were 19p in my store yesterday.

    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.

    Do you have to be a business, or could you use it for ebay?

    Thanks to all posted good wishes This is my first accident in all the time I have been driving about 30 year So I am very fortunate

    Neighbour has been in to see if I am ok.

    I think they may need a new porch There is lumps and bumps all over the brickwork He was more concerned about what it may cost me in future years for insurance but its only money and I have protected no claims but no idea how it works

    TBH the street is usually busy with dog walkers and he suggested I was lucky I did not fall out and get run over I am just very happy there is no one was injured

    Very glad that you are alright this morning and not shaken up still and it was nice that your neighbour popped in.

    What a week you have had and its only Wednesday - I am thinking that having to go into work really rattled you, maybe not on the surface and it was still gnawing away at you yesterday so you lost concentration.

    To have only one bump in 30 years is a big achievement.

    Not sure whose insurance - your or your neighbours - car or house building insurance pays out in a car versus house situation.

    Morning all. I am having a weird morning

    Phone went beep and I leapt out of bed to see who was sending me a message - I keep the phone away from the bed so I have to get up to answer it.

    Last night was fairly normal, about midnight before I finally got to bed, I took a while to settle, went for a loo break at 3.30 ... nothing out of the ordinary.
    OH is up at 6.30 and this morning so was Errant son who was at work at 7.30 and he was giving him a lift as the car was going into the garage so there was 2 of them clumping about. OH brings me up a mug of tea about 7 before he sets off. Then I drink the tea, make the To Do list etc and I am always up before 8.

    This morning though when I had a look at the message it was 9.45 - that was one massive over sleep!!!!

    Car developed strange noises on Saturday and none of us could be sure which corner they were coming from so it went in this morning for a look see - broken coils and they have to be replaced in pairs so another 250 plus bill
    OH said it was strange it had not showed up on the MOT in November but with the state of the roads as they are it was inevitable something would suffer ...

    Just been to Iceland for the pancake pan/deal. The 'freebies' came to 4.00.

    Pan is certainly better than the one I have at the minute, so hopefully might improve my attempt at pancakes

    Made sure it wasn't same unpleasant woman on customer services today then went and got more small beans.

    The irony of it though, yesterday when the points didn't appear (shop done around 10.30) the lady removed the ticket and took it and me to customer services desk.

    Today the 300 points ticket was back in front of the small beans

    Do-op magazine (never seen it before but A5 size by the till) had a coupon for 50p off flora.

    Was surprised to see how many creme eggs had been opened. Has nobody around here thought to simply check the ingredients list?

    Thanks to everyone that mentioned the Quality Street, not supposed to be going out because ill, but knew Mum and Aunt would be very happy if I could get them.

    Went to store where I had previously seen them and there was a trail of people leaving the shop with them in their trollys and loads "hidden" in a corner in self scan checkout area in bags with names on for staff.

    Low and behold found the last of them by tills and managed to get 20, there was about 35 altogether. Five minutes later I would have missed them.

    Mum and Aunt will be pleased (make good easy presents) and no shortage of people who will be grateful for 1.25. May even keep one myself
