    That brings back memories! I used to lay on my back in the snow with my mouth wide open, in absolute heaven

    Anyway while the muggles are going to supermarkets half an hour before closing they will be carelessly leaving receipts in trolleys all over the place to be tidied up

    Go to T's to use my 10p off litre petrol and the petrol station is closed for refurbishment.

    Tank nearly empty and the nearest T's with petrol is out of my way.

    With under 50 miles left in the tank, I approached with trepidation last night but it was open again for trading

    Snap!!!8217;s picture reminds me of a little boy who started in nursery, having recently moved to the UK from India. When we had our first fall of snow he looked up at the sky and stuck out his tongue. The look of joy and wonder on his face is unforgettable x

    Does it say you definitely need to spend 10 per 'shop?'

    Otherwise you could just spend 2 x 1 instore?

    is any1 else addicted to mullers? run out so thinking of buying 12 for 3 lol
    Got a few yellow stickers so just need to meal plan. Had a fellow yellow stocker person put something down in the wrong place yesterday - this makes it fair taking? i saw him go back for it later . He was then going to put his basket down but saw me and thought better of it. Do people actually take out of others baskets/trolleys ? i would never do that . The cake was one thing cause it went back on a shelf (ok wrong shelf and i think he hoped for further reduction)

    [QUOTE=diluvsdiscounts;73837080]Your walk looked lovely the other day. Its amazing how warm the sun is when its out even in winter. We've had plenty of vitam D this weekend.

    I've just put our recycling out, its a day early but I don't want not to be ablevto get it down the drive If the snow is deep. We'll see how many neighbours panic thinking its Wednesday and put theirs out too

    Mrsmac did you find the wax melts?[/QUOTE

    I did not. I must try again thanks for the reminder

    Just been to McColl where they are being stocked up with Safeway items as per last year's wholesale agreement with Morrisons.

    Looks most odd seeing shelves of Safeway branded stuff.
