    Morning luvlies, got a couple of PMs to catch up and still a bit behind on here but wanted to comment on this before I forget.

    Gocat does your mum-in-law have paypal? As our DS and his gf live in Spain the easiest way for us to transfer their birthday, Christmas money etc to them is into their PayPal account. If you select friends/ family the charge is minimal. All the family gave me cash for them this Christmas and I transferred about 350 to them and was charged under 2. Smaller amounts like 50 there's no charge at all. We find it the safest and easiest way and ideal for paying for the baby bits, stroller etc. HTH

    managed to pop to boots this morning and grabbed a couple of sleek sets and soap and glory ones for 5 each, DD2 will be my bestie until she gets one!!! Might try and drag that out lol Also I popped into superdrug there were a few new reductions but all gone, l'oreal mens deo 66p every flavour and some tea tree washes to 35p/87p these are also bogohp and a free mask wyb 3 skincare items, I picked a couple of other bits up but changed my mind as for what they were were too expensive for us lol but didn't take the mask out, however the mask still scanned through as free, so got 3 of the above and 2 masks for 1.40

    We still seem to have quite a few people missing in action that have not popped their heads over the parapet in ages, seriously starting to worry about them now ...

    OHs have no self control, mine has left me exasperated this week.
    And then last night he has the cheek to say "she wont spend the money" - this is after a week when he has fully restocked himself on junk food and put 50 of petrol in the car yesterday
    I also paid a vets bill (which I am regretting doing now, the vets visit as it sparked off last nights outburst)

    Has anyone got the No7 vouchers from Boots... any suggestions on what they work on..... clearly I would like free or extremely cheap.... my niece tends to get a few little bits and pieces throughout the year. As she is 17 now she is a little more discerning on what she will use.... why do they have to grown up!

    Good morning all

    I manage a quick Boots shop but missed the candles Went round the wrong way Never mind

    Got a big set of various small toiletries marked 30 16 items so will make 4 nice small parcels then 6 boxes of some keep fit type person's logo of toiletries for 1.25 each

    Should have got the Zoella advent calendar for GD but was unsure How silly is that

    More paperwork to be attended to Oh I wish I had a car Maybe later today

    Enjoy whatever you do

    Nope, so no idea how you generate a declined transaction at will....

    I was thinking of looking into one before to get through credit card/current account conditional spend offers, for example only this morning BA tried to persuade me to get an avios amex 30k miles for 3k spend in 3 months and then a free companion ticket for 10k spend in a year so if I could just pay myself using a card for say 1% it might work out worth it.

    Not getting ahead though, I think we need to figure a good way of using the M&S droid vouchers as DW failed again this morning, we think because it was a sale item with more than 30% off but then how does one do 30+ good value transactions at M&S for 3/5 quid each?

    Did you ever try this? it had crossed my mind for the 2k Nectar offer, but the 1.7% would be a lot of money (to me).

    DD was telling her OH about all the lovely nail colours she could buy, and she was having difficulty choosing.

    So he blithely told her just to buy one of each, his treat.

    She has turned down his kind offer as there are over 100 colours at 15 a time

    They are oblivious to the hard work it entails
    And there are fewer glitches around now, things often only last a day or a few hours before it gets stopped.

    Poppy's very generous with her biscuits. We used to have a biscuit tin in the office but it seems to have disappeared. Probably something to do with the current dieting fad. Maybe Poppy will share her biscuits with us.

    THis afternoons outing is to take the recyling up to Sainsbobs even though there is a hooly blowing and then to see if I can find some cadhback items - unlikley. But I need to get some points added on so at least thats something.
