    There's nothing better than being at home and being paid for it.

    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.

    latest VM Shop.

    Bought 10 different items. APG says "you don't have 8 different items".

    Guess they'll be going back tomorrow. Trouble is paid mostly with APG.

    Been thinking is it worth keeping a list of what isn't showing on the APGs at the moment. I scraped through last night with one of my wine shops. Forgot the small cadbury chocolate buttons don't show

    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

    Parenting club send out paper mailings but otherwise everything elses on the app. Its a good idea to screenshot any offers you are using incase of problems - they disappear after thry have been used.

    It is an error between the way the site and Apple devices interpret some symbols for a rough example, we type "X" in Apple device and site sees "!%!"!!" sort of thing. Like a bad interpreter LOL.
