I could use the code several times and no shop was more than 1, so I am very pleased. Thank you.

    No laughing. But just reading my contract for work, I was so excited and goes to oh omg I am going to be paid for holidays. then it dawned on me, but I don't want to go on holiday. was so pleased when Ds3 told me, that I can have holiday pay and stay at home.

    I have never had holiday pay and oh is self employed so neither has he.

    I am not usually that daft but just cooked dinner for 16 people and spent half the day at community kitchen where I made over 200 Welsh cakes

    But Rhos, you should have had holiday pay for that job in the Country Park, assuming you were an employee of the business and did not go in on a self-employed basis.

    Good evening. This may have been mentioned. I see JF has gone into 342 in A and 3 for 12 in T.

    Sheer Blond Brilliantly Brighter and Radiant Red are 6.99 each in A

    A buy 3, pay 13.98, apg should see 20.97 v 12, 10.17 return on 13.98 spend, so 3.81 for 3 plus fillers?

    Untested.
