    Mr T will sometimes replace expired vouchers. It's possibly worth an email.

    Now don't you go and do any dusting, mind. Things like that can have serious repercussions...

    Definitely worth a phone call on the vouchers - I have a strong feeling that they will usually replace in that scenario - it's the ones that are converted to actual deals tokens that you have to use within their time limit, isn't it...

    Troosers - C'Hoppers do a few different styles I think - not though I know what style my current ones are, you understand...! Regatta are a flipping nightmare on me though - they practically come to underneath my arms! :p

    Yes, thank you beanie love. All ok :)

    INOD, beanie and EH - thank you for your advice regarding the mrT vouchers. You were absolutely right and a phone call thankfully resulted in the restoring the points to my account and the vouchers will follow at the end of the month :D For which I am grateful :D Doesn't excuse my stupidity;but I'm counting myself as very blessed. I'm glad that I fessed up on here to being a numpty though :o

    apple muncher - funnily enough I did find something more interesting to do than rigorous dusting..... I concur - housework can be dangerous :rotfl:

    Cumbria lass - that's interesting about mrAl walking trousers. I shall keep an open mind next time they advertise them.


    We had baked tattie, omlette and (gifted) runner beans for tea. Didn't break the bank, but wouldn't interest any michlyn starred eating establishments, neither :o

    Today I am grateful for these 3 things;

    advice from fellow mse'rs :T

    the things children do :D
    :rotfl:

    more gifted produce
    :j

    Ta for popping in. Ta for helping me. Ta for supporting me. Appreciated. Greatly. Always.
