    I found an mands with self service tills earlier - I have to say it was much easier entering the code myself .

    I am not sure who programmed their tills though - the Coke code shows as !!!8364;5 Euro off !!!8364;25 on screen when you enter it. 20 redeemed though so it saves hassle with staff another day.

    Did my planned yeo valley yogurt shop. All went to plan with my 10 whoopsied bakery items. Prefer this to the muller glitch. Only a few mags left in my store.
    Micheals - you definitely need to keep the yellow stickered branded stuff separate as it will compare to other supermarkets.
    Our cross shredder has been making a funny whirring noise for a while now but today gave up the ghost completely so need a new one. Not really any good offers about anyone got any tips please? Most of the reviews on the cheaper ones seem negative.

    I have just spent a nice hour with one of the many free courses on the open uni Apparently there are over 1000 to chose from. I have chosen level one forensic psychology. Omg I was so bad with the tests
    Very interesting though

    Thought it may be of interest to others

    Hope it will help me tighten up my own security

    Pickled mangoes, dried bananas, arrowroot biscuits and all manner of stuff. Theres a banner across some of them which saysExport Quality.

    Does that mean its an inferior quality for home consumption?

    Hope they all have a great time
