    Do you live in Skipton- the happiest place in the UK? I dont know if theres an A there, but if there was I wonder if there would be no trouts haha.

    Mine are all trouty with mocs, they accused me of fraud, so I dont want the stress of going in an A.

    But I'm with you on cutting out the stress. I gave up stress when I gave up work could have been much better off if I manged the last 4 years, but I'm happy
    Also fortunate enough not to have to rely on yellow stickers, glitches etc and while I will jump on these when I can to save I won't push my stress levels higher than 'have I got 8 for Sada or 10 for Tescies' mind you anyone who bumps into me in a supermarket will think I have lost the plot as I around counting items in my trolley.

    Zippy Are you still playing CarlingTap?

    I wasn't expecting an APG (even threw some whoopsie cauli and soup mix in) but pleased with 2.11 back.

    I know Mrs Zippy doesn't like change, but A's superseeded is as good as, if not better than, the Hovis

    I returned some lll fitting bedding to an S I dont go to very often, and they now have different software on their SS tills, all different lay out, I managed to fathom it ok and the SA put through a couple of my swipe points mocs as the till only let me scan one.

    First time Ive seen the receipts with a barcode on at S. No doubt this will be rolled out to all stores eventually

    Well this was supposed to happen with Mr T - targeted MOCs based on what you bought but it never did. I have not had a mailing MOC in years. And then there was Sainsburys pick 6 items for extra points and again it was nothing that you ever actually bought.
    Now its Waitrose's turn to disappoint us
