    See wot WonTwo has on offer.

    Hopefully points or whatever will show on my Sub apps on my 2 phoneys. Buy BOGOF for each, give the free ones away to people needing thwm, eat one and keep one for Turdsday, have points for another two as an emergency backup
    How much do they cost? about 3 ?? so pay 6.

    Go to T, hopefully 5 peeza different flavas and 6 fillers (1 cost) and get 4 free shopping.

    Afternoon elite, in HB I found Food Haven pure coconut oil portions 250g for 1 in the fridge section. Seems quite cheap for coconut oil.

    Hope you have all had a good day. Off to see free preview of Finding Your Feet at the Vue soon

    Hello HILLBERN and thanks for the update.

    Were you able to confirm with your son if he has the sort of heating system I talked about last week? I ask because, if he has, this part of the business (Heat) is looked after separately from our conventional electricity and gas supplies. They have their own complaints process as well as an individual website. More specific details, including how to contact their complaints team, are on this website (heateonenergy). It'll save your son some time if he goes directly down this path.

    Sorry if I'm assuming wrongly HILLBERN. Let me know if I am and I'll try again.

    Although im feeling carp, cough, sore throat, sniffles and feeling lethargic...I felt I need to go shoplifting today...

    First stop Argoose for the c+c lego glitch from last week.
    My local store didn't stock what I wanted so 25mile round trip so I have to make it worthwhile
    2nd stop gweggs for our free roll + drink via the code from ap
    3rd stop sd hair dye for dd 15p
    4th stop boots nail varnish and lip gloss 89p (90% off) but I didn't buy
    5th stop - I couldn't resist chocolate factory shop outlet..spent 6 of real money I forgot my mantra card
    6th stop T - and they had the mags this was the only store out of 5 that we have been to that had them...so armed with 6 coupons, 6 yogurt pkt + fillers all worked well

    thanks to whoever first posted the yogurts

    now home feeling shattered , coffee I think...anyone care to join me? but beware of my germs

    Mushrooms are food of the devil so only 4 Doctors for us assuming I can get some vouchers. Filler against S - I notice you can do two free Happy Downs of each flavour on clicksnap - don't really know what to do with my stash though - perhaps put them into the DKs (13, 12, 9) pack lunches?

    I have a question about them. Why is it always the yellow crocuses that show first ????????? I honestly have never actually looked up the answer so I don't know if it is out there, but I have noticed that it is ALWAYS the yellow that show first

    Maybe your yellow ones are an early variety too.

    Lunch meal deal not too bad, 3.50 for sandwich, botlle of coke or other fizzy and packet of MS cwispies, 50p to pay, or 2 meal deals and they have double packs of biscwits for 1.50, so 3+5 = 50p to pay.

    Also look out for reduced items too.
