    Not if buying VM

    Also, 4 would be the max if you're wanting to stick under 20

    VM is in any amount.

    Each depends on how high you want your APG.

    That's paranoia at it's best. Missed off or none in stock ? The pickers/packers/invoice(ers) wouldn't have a clue that you're paying via an HSBC card and wanting to get cash back. UNLUCKY, that's all. Next time reject the whole order and ask them to process in full if it's a missed item

    Good & Bad day today, had a boiler service for today between 0800 and 1730, saying they would call in advance. waited until noon and called them. They said that they could not come out as dealing with heating emergencies
    Plus to it was that I was in for postie, got my road tax reminder. Had to go online and pay it. Was a waste of paper as my road tax is Nil Strangely I went through the process online and it confirmed I had "bought" my road tax. Still did it, just in case LOL

    So half a day not totally wasted. So went out, got 2 free coughees ( 4 stamps), then 2 sausage muffins from co-op free in Saturdays Star, 4 tinned fishy wisheys, one Rustller gourmet booger. Still to get 2 chocs from Thornies tomorrow.
    Bought some crunchee nuts (oucha!) 2 for 4 with Merlin voucher on them.
    So spent 1 on Saturday Star and 4 for Crunchee Nuts

    WonTwo tomorrow doesn't seem to promise me much, not near any of the promised retailers.

    Has everyone else had the Sky TV letter about the forthcoming price rise?

    I rang them today and we are actually out of contract for our sky TV boxed sets package (the sky fibre and line contract is due in May) We have 50% off now so by July we will be paying 38 a month

    Just wondering about a plan of attack - I have put a message up on the TV/Sky forum as there are bound to be experts over there.

    We have a standard HD set, no sports, films or kids TV, no multiroom - only watch sky one and some documentaries
