    I had an Alcatel Pixi 3 mobile (it came free with an Alcatel tablet from Ts)
    This is the one I changed over to before Christmas & it was the worse phone I have ever ever used

    Luckily Fourp bought me a lovely Huawei for Christmas & I flogged the Alcatel

    Good morning All,

    TM you need one of these for your big handbags : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Periea-Handbag-Organiser-12-Compartments/dp/B00ZFIJMNS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1515843643&sr=8-3&keywords=handbag%2Borganiser&th=1

    They are great for keeping things together in the bottom of handbags and come in different sizes for different bags.

    Not been around much as moved house and trying to get organised but trying to read along with you all.

    Hugs to all who would like one.

    Happy Birthday Di.

    It made me realise how long Ive had handbag problems as Im sure someone else was kind enough to recommend something similar in the past Im not keen to add something else to the bags I have really. The best answer would be to get rid of much of the stuff I carry around I think.

    I think Im looking for a perfect bag that doesnt exist

    Good Afternoon

    TM have you looked at Kipling bags ?

    You can get roomy ones and not lose your stuff also they are not heavy like some bags are

    Ive never really looked at Kipling bags or Radley for that matter. But I will have a gander later

    Im reconciling myself to the fact that I may never find the perfect bag.....just as I cant paint a ceiling without leaving marks or even clean windows without smears.......sometimes you just have to accept your shortcomings

    Wheres My Cashback
    Been shopping online for 2 front tyres.
    Did a bit of research
    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/92873/all-season-tyre-test-20172018-results-by-category

    Checked prices for nearly all fitters etc.

    Best Price for my choice of Michelin was Kwik Fit, also says you can get free mobile fitting for 2 or more tyres.

    Best price per tyre by at least 10. also freebie winter care kit when ordered online
    https://www.kwik-fit.com/offers/michelin-winter-kit-offer and CB from Q 3.5%TCB 3.28%

    Still just about 100 each but as car is the newest I have ever had, I want to make sure I get th best I can.

    Hope this can help others who may be looking for tyres.

    Also you normally get your receipt in a wee booklet that sometimes has money off stuff in it. I know the staff at my local and have always had good service from them.

    Thanks for that, thought I didn't recognise the name.... Nearest centre 218 miles away . Kwik fit a couple of pounds cheaper and then the CB and freebie.

    Cheapest way to get tyres - get 6-10 online quotes - deduct 20% from the lowest quote - ring the online/other fitters and ask them to match the 20% deducted quotes - 9/10 you'll get one to match YOUR price with little haggling as there are big mark ups on tyres.

    quoting dave mortons
    I fancy giving it another try, but I only have one account that I can set up on it, and thats the one I used. My other accounts are Starling bank and Barclays, and neither are listed as being able to use on the droid app


    you can use the same card just need a different phone ie pixi 3 for 4.99 to load account onto then transfer to nfc phone and different gmail address

    If you want a ‘second’ 30 days of the promo for envelopes, you need another unused ap phone as long as it has 4.4 kitkat or newer you can download ap, set up new acc and then go to your NFC phone and add the new acc on that.

    The trouble with tyres is that often you dont get much notice of when they need replacing - Oh had a nail that was noriced at mot time (mendable) but then when it went for servicing another was spotted so OH then had to do the tyre change.
