    Coop valentines deal

    Steak and chips for 2 and a melt in the middle chocolate pud each


    Better than Greggs by far

    Fwiw, I have a pack of two (Free From) frozen melt in the middle puddings at M saying 1 RTC.

    In fact, there seem to be several Free From items, frozen and fresh, on RTC in M at the moment. I'm just mentioning this now as it's likely I won't be updating the list for a few days as I'll explain in my next post. Elsewhere, I've got Hall's Haggis 454g and Simon Howle Gluten Free Haggis 454g each on 1 RTC ( - check back to see if Sains. probably beat that?) and Simon Howle Bagged Haggis 908g 2 RTC in M.

    Some of the RTC free from fresh items may not necessarily be in the free from shelves but could be on aisle ends or other shelving near those places, such as M the Best Free From Cookie Selection 450g and M the Best Free From Shortbread Selection 450g at 1 each that I have found from within my stores.

    evening all, lego glitch (thanks to savvy deals post on facebook) at argos. It is supposed to give you 5 off for every 25 you spend but its actually giving you 5 every box of lego bought when you use the promotional code on their website when you spend over 25. You do need to pay online before you go and then collect at fast track. Hope that's useful to someone!

    There is something about the way they put everything together that fascinates me, think I should have been a pathologist.

    Forensic science fascinates me too. Maybe next time around, perhaps?

    In our school (a girls' grammar) you did your best O'levels at A level, and that set The Path, end of story.

    Nobody in the careers department ever ever mentioned anything remotely interesting, like anthropology, or palaeontology, or forensics, or geophysics, or archaeology or Egyptology.

    We went to Egypt a few years ago, thought it would quench my thirst, it did not.

    Unfortunately my path was laid down by a misogynistic father who thought females were only suitable as secretaries and should not have the option to study the sciences or law or somesuch. One of my brothers got to be a geophysicist though
