    Afternoon Elite

    Stayed up all night after more stress over Emily as M DID report the bite to the police, so looking forward to giving them a statement on what really happened as she has told them that she did nothing to provocate the dog grr. Concentrating on keeping Emily safe - which we have achieved hopefully, but I can't give details. Bottle of cheap but delicious bottle of red wine gave me such weird dreams when I did sleep this morning

    Top tip for Waities. Have 2 cards ( one in your first christian and one in 2nd ). Use card no 1 for most of your shopping. Use 2nd sporadically and you will get conditional spends on that one that can be used with the 1st card

    Outside?? Some terrible peeps would probably photo codes to use at home without buying them

    Codes can be entered up to 31/12/17 so you have plenty of time to allow a muggle at least a sporting chance of claiming their own code

    It is me, Mr Slow, again.
    Just checked my PAG for beens and pot noddle which I paid 75p for, compares at 50p, an offer from tomorrow, 2 for £1, so how do I find it if other way round, as in cheap today but expensive tomorrow? As for example xxxx costs £1 today but goes to £2 tomorrow and the £1 compares favourably, as in £1 at Tosser, so probably a PAG for £2 vs £1, PAG 0f £1.10 on £1 spend?
    How can we check? A wander down this aisles looking at prices and scanning on App? May have a stroll through Sada if that is the case
    Sorry, just looked at PAG again, it has taken pot noddle at 50p each. 75p on SEL and App is 2 for £1.50. Tottaly confusing LOL


    But knowing me, probably a (BIG) flaw in my thinking.

    Just thinking out loud.....the walkers offer....I recall when they did the £3 lunch promotion, people buying the boxes of walkers from HB? or somewhere similar....wonder if this might be worthwhile with this promo, and if the boxes are on offer?

    Good Afternoon from the 1st class coach on a virgin pendolino train from Edinburgh to Crewe, get me . Not very mse but very nice none the less. I could get used to this Nellie lol.

    My first time in first class and hopefully not the last if the price is right. I had a ticket for a normal coach but realised I wouldn t get back to Wrexham till almost 10 which makes it an extra long day travelling so I looked for alternatives and saw this with £76 off

    I think if the difference was not huge then go for it - its a different world in first class on Virgin apart from the stinky loos
    Travelling cattle class especially in the school hols is hellish

    Odd times we have been in first coming back from Euston - OH has been very polite and asked nicely and if its very very quiet in first we have been moved - Liverpool staff are very kind. OH though says we can only accept hot drinks but no food as its taking the p****

    The last time we went down to Southampton in January on Cross Country oddly there was extra carriages on so the train was like a ghost train as everyone was spread out. The conductors seeing as we had our passes (and even though our companies don't have reciprocal arrangements) helped move us and various cases into 1st which was totally empty and we did enjoy cross country hospitality that day
