    I would get onto HO with a complaint

    They are selling the promo packs so they should honour them. Particularly because their website says they will take internet coupons

    oh dear

    we done 2 shops this morning for items that I actually wanted.
    shop 1 had 6 x tresseme shampoo and conditioner, wands, wham,eggs,prawn crackers, + 2 morw 10p sweets

    shop 2 had 6x john frieda 3 x lynx wands, whams, + couple of 10p sweets.
    system saying not enough items

    we had 15 different items so what has happened?
    we did pay cash as well as an apg.

    so is it because we would have generated another apg or have they counted all the 342 items as 1

    I wasn't locked in and is was incognito when checking apg, shops done just before 10 this morning

    any ideas.

    There have been posts on here a while back about system saying not enough items, and it righted itself later in the day. Fingers crossed

    My C&C today matched the deal. did initially say technical problems..

    An in store today had "insufficient items" even though 11 bought. Looks like an issue with the site, as Cpl, Jones would say "DON'T PANIC, DON'T PANIC!!"

    Sad news though - Phantom pregnancy and labour

    She has had two previous litters, of only two puppies each - she is a Maltese and litter sizes are generally small. But labour lasted about 3 hours both times previously. So I took her to the Vets earlier as I was getting concerned.

    Vet did a thorough ultrasound and manual examination and definitely no puppies there
    She is still showing all the signs of labour though and even has milk.
    The Vet says she may have been carrying a puppy but it died earlier in the pregnancy and has been re-absorbed

    How sad and disappointing, but she has had an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory and a good check over.

    I got the neon coral ones, they are not actually lace up and the tongue is not separate. Most of the trainers they have looked to have a good arch in them but I only tried on those ones and the bubble mesh ones.
