    I seem to remember you get an invite to a fancy dinner when you get to 100???

    I had time off for babies and I was anaemic once so I've only done 61

    What colour card are you on - the gold one runs up to 75 donations - not sure what it afterwards

    Thanks, I will do, I think I need to stop worrying about everyone else, I thought as the kids get older it would be less worry, but they have partners and kids and I worry over them as well. Sent ds2 to Anglesey to take a plate of dinner, some cake and chocolate for his oh as she decided not to come down after being out with coast guard. Did not like her being in an empty house with no tea.




    think I I am the least posh on here. I got asked to leave a shop yesterday, they did not like my wellies

Instead I am still doing a head count when I first wake up - where everyone is on any one day - worst still now as I also have to think where s-I-l and GF are. And the imagination runs riot as to what might be happening in their lives ...

    This seems strange as there's a high chance I will need a blood transfusion it would be strange if I got uour blood. I'm A rhesus negative what group are you?

    I think I would be desperate to know where it had come from if I had a transfusion - packs are all barcoded now so they can trace its movement every step of the way.

    Long time lurker posting (very shy) loving all your input so heartfelt thanks from me.

    I have a little query please for all COS experts. Ive recently bought the nivea deo and received cashback for it. Unfortunately it would appear to have caused an allergic reaction with my husband and i have bought five just windring what 5he specific rules are on returning items when youve claimed. Not very money saving to be saddled with 5 deodorants that cant be used.

    Thanks for reading chaps.

    If you have an infant aged 3 months - 24 months then check your survey emails this morning from the pale people north of the border - nice little trail coming up and surveys going out.

    Me personally I would be contacting whoever owns Nivea now - they must have a customer service department someone online - they take bad reactions very seriously

    Good morning all, what a grey day but at least it is dry.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets muddled between Lidl and Aldi - all I can remember for sure is that I have to go to Aldi for croissants because Lidl stopped doing the ones OH likes. Of course, it does not help that they are literally on diagonally opposite sides of the crossroad here

    I have got 4 off 40 W vouchers ... same as previous times . Mrs Anon received nothing .

    I have never in my life spent 40 in W in one transaction. If they were looking to reel me in, surely starting with 2 off 20 or 3 off 30 would be a better place to start ...? Also marmite and nuts money off vouchers - so quickly use those two while MyP is still on .

They fly around the world at the drop of a hat, travel to London for a party etc and cram so much into every minute of the day that it leaves me breathless.
    DS is just back from Manila/ Hong Kong but is home later today. DD is in Liverpool on a one day course but will be home later too.....and heres me sat in my dressing gown trying to work out the cheapest place to buy fabric softener

    Theres been some great suggestions on here on how best to use the W conditional spends. Im ignoring them for now as Im still hoping that the postie will deliver mine today. I dont want to spook it

    Ive just banked some Yeokens, done a pasta/ flour stocktake, filled in an application form for an Iceland bonus card. Dont really want to use it to save but wondering if I might get some offers on the back of itand now Im going to write my lists for today.

    Weather is horrible. I intend to go shoplifting
