    OH managed to order the perfume glitch from late last night over on dark side whilst I was asleep. He placed quite a large order of various men's and women's fragrances for around 20 C&C. He got an email this morning to say it's ready to collect.

    Got up, drove to the shop ready for doors to open. Went in, sa apologised and said that only two third of my items were in stock and that she had to arrange a refund for the rest. At this point another sa gets a phone call and looks rather worried whilst I'm being handed over perfumes. My sa then goes over to her till to arrange partial refund of around 6 but at this point other sa put phone down and started walking across to me. I said to my sa 'sorry need to dash' and legged it out the store.

    On the plus side - birthday and christmas present sorted for the next couple of years for a large proportion of the family.

    Morning everyone.

    snap it must be a tough period and can only apologise. Life is one heck of a roller-coaster. It's sad at this moment in time but things will brighten up and and the clouds will lift. One day we will win the war and find a cure.

    Good to see many regulars.

    Off to give blood now, have a good day everyone.

    After a further three mammograms plus an ultrasound this morning, the verdict was that I have a tiny (3mm) cyst. No further investigation required. Relief doesn't even begin to describe it. It's been a long two weeks but I'm so grateful that the NHS was able to identify and investigate something so tiny.
    Thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes xx

    That sounds amazing, what store was it?

    It was The Fragrance Shop. The code was taking 91 off Barbour Classic 100ml when it was priced at 64.50. So it was best to add other fragrances in to make it a positive total. Some people were putting through negative balance orders but OH thought that would be too obvious when C&Cing. Taught him well.

    I've only just finished catching up with the thread over there. Seems like some people managed to get their orders too but staff then became aware early morning once stores had opened.

    Blood given - I'm now a pint lighter so will have a bit of rest and try and find some bargains. Tempted to get a takeaway tonight.

    (from the dark side). Iceland one of the first to release their Christmas advert for 2018 - which has been banned. They've posted it on their YouTube account though.

    Iceland’s Banned TV Christmas Advert... Say hello to Rang-tan

    John Lewis reportedly spent 10m on this year's advert - would rather more free drink and cake vouchers if I'm honest.
