    Ellie14 has bought me enough wine to see us into 2019 although the way I'm going I may still be in this hospital room then. Thank you Ellie you are so kind hopefully I will see you with bq this week.

    It was very kind of frexinet to put turquoise foil on the bottles they will look perfect next to my twine bottles.

    I've got a rather large voucher now to use - wish I'd done 2 shops with just 3 bottles in each now ...
    All of my fillers were good - some NA but the others all gave me a few extra pence. I tend to get fillers I need or ones that can go into food bank collections rather than 10p sweeties.
    Ta for the OP this morning who was also going to have a try, you gave me the courage - I have now got my gorgeous NZ wine that I really wanted (which none of my Twine boxes that I returned on Friday had)

    About 3.20 or thereabouts according to my calculations - I factor IN the fillers, not factored out as they are all useful.

    NZ wine is my all time favourite and even the cheapest bottles start at about 6 but usually 8 or 9 and above - I would rather pay that than get others

    Is it just me or is it wrong to leave the foil round the neck of the bottle. TM will agree I'm sure

    That reminds me, I need some sort of dispensing canister for OH's ground coffee. I had been looking at the Zevro one but it comes out of the bottom, and his coffee maker uses the sump like thing that clips onto the coffee maker, can imagine him missing every time.

    Anyone got any ideas please?
