    Such a relief that the snow is melting away. I am petrified of slipping over on ice

    We cooked a lovely roast beef dinner together yesterday - I had to make Yorkshire puddings as I forgot to buy them, but they were delicious

    Hopefully we will get post today & the rubbish collected ...

    My super lovely Dyson won't charge Dyson sent me a new charger, nope, it's the connection. So they have now despatched a new battery (?)
    If this doesn't work they will send a repair man..

    Fed up already of picking up bits of the carpet (I sold all my other vacuums )

    That is so cruel

    Do I want everything there? Yes.

    Do I have anywhere to put anything that is there, or even a use for it? No

    Just cancelled Talk Talk installation.

    Before this Virgin were charging us 43. New 12 month contract is 19 for nearly the same, step down from 100 meg to 50 meg, which is fine by us, considering we were happy to change to about 17 meg. Not entirely sure that that will happen anyway, they seem to be phasing out lower speeds, 50/50 as to whether they are simply paying lip service to downgrading the speed.

    I should say that when we rang them up to check the contract had finished, they offered us the same package without the downgrade for 36 a month.

    Pretty disgusting that we actually had to book another company to persuade them to give us a decent deal. And you have to ask how many people would have seen a nearly 20% discount and grabbed it without playing the game.

    Sainsburys yesterday I got a till spit for 100 points for buying any size dreamies cat treats - according to mysupermarket they are 1. Also the previous person left me theirs so now I have two

    Its a pity that on GJ this week they have listed Dreamies but the mega version so its the wrong size

    Also collected 140 points for Muller white which also seems to be 1 on mysupermarket - don't quite trust mysupermarket so we will see tomorrow

    Just to confirm that VM working today v M.

    Also Freixenet V W.

    Tried eggs today as the celebrations appeared on the top shelf at the end of an aisle with 342 banner under the label on SEL. I decided to pay cash as I didn't want to go to CS having used a very large APG. Anyway off the Trout goes to investigate and comes back saying that celebrations weren't in the 3 4 10. So I say it was on the stand that says 3 4 10 and she then says" no, it was the ones below in the offer and not celebrations which were on the shelf above and not included. I insisted that the SEL said 3 4 10 and she replied "well it doesn't now" . The cheeky so and so had only removed the 3 4 10 from the shelf edge. So I had to have a refund.

    Another droid payment discount thingy DOMINOOS when paying by Visa Checkout you get 5 off of 15 spend

    One of my phones asked for my phone number again for O3, tried to do it and didn't work. Uninstalled and then installed, it then just crashes straight away and keeps doing it until I go into App menu and force stop.

    Anyone got any clues?
