    Morning all

    Not doing porridge today are we?

    Was annoyed with OH yesterday. I got him 12 packets as its one of the few jealthy things he actually likes to eat. He;s a very picky eater and spends the day snacking on sweets.
    Anyway, he said, o why dont you go this evening (yesterday evening) and get some more. Im like, Ive got enough and its too cold. He says o think of all the money you will save over the year. This is the bit that gets me. He thinks nothing of sending money abroad to his mum (which I dont mind) but doesnt shop around for the cheapest way to do it and it cost about 40 in fees each time. But if I mention that its o all you go on about is saving money. Bit ironic isnt it

    Rant over

    We brought back a box of sherbet dabs from the party at the weekend with about 22 in and he is working his way through them, I don't think it will take a fortnight.
    If it was just a short term mass overdose of sherbet dabs it would not be so bad but its that as well as pepsi/coke, chocolate, cake and biscuits etc.
    MY OH also thinks I am obsessed with saving but to me I would rather scrimp and do without things we don't really need and then spend the money saved on something meaningful - a day out, an activity, something that creates a memory ....

    A message from my son we refers to my son

    We have owned since new (shared ownership scheme), we were first owners from new. The whole complex heating and electricity is done through E.on. Once we moved in Affinity Sutton (the housing association who we pay rent on the % we do not have) let E.on know we are in the building and set up the account. They (Affinity Sutton) told them that we were on a Housing Association tariff (were they pay the daily standard fee as mentioned before) we are not. We are just normal home owners. This has just come to light now. E.on only process what Affinity Sutton told them so I can't see it is their fault. My thoughts are it is Affinity Sutton for providing the wrong information


    Son was at work till late yesterday and missed a call from eon

    Good morning all

    I went through the SS with APG's yesterday noting I have never been able to self scan. The cashier just put them through as coupons and that is unusual, normally they scan and authorise They were both under 2.00 each so no big deal

    Its a lovely sunny morning , another long lie today as I had been reading till quite late about long term sick leave and disability More reading is required and it may work to my benefit

    Enjoy whatever you do and remember about Boots if you need to spend more than 50

    Take care

    ok so its was the porridge glitch but considering my apg total for year is under 30 and only used 5 vouchers for year not overly abused . i had typed it in.it worked but they were waiting to suspend
    Originally posted by ma-ri-ella
    I didnt mean you might be abusing.

    All stores analyse APG throughput, if anyone is fiddling the alarm goes off, similarly if throughput is high, the alarm goes off, if the value/values are high, the alarm goes off. Maybe someone else in your store has been giving them a thrashing.
    I got a "chat" with the manager in a store a few years ago, mind that was a hand wash for free glitch and I was doing two shops at a time, three times a day. At least they got the right bloke !!!
    I havent had a problem for years, I "think"its because I had a couple of run ins with trouts and I stood my ground, explained exactly what I was doing and why it was SADAs problem. I suggested they spend a bit more on computer programming.

    Good morning everyone.

    Four conditional spend vouchers at Waitrose received this morning, valid to 4th March. Plus 2 money off coupons. I hope you all get some.

    The letter says that they will be replacing PYO with personalised rewards based on the things you buy most often.

    DD1 asked me to read through her essay on whether the US should scrap the death penalty. Thinking we were a nice middle class liberal family I was a bit surprised she came out in favour of retaining it
