    Got an email from quidco - in theory lots of profit on beagle street life insurance but also high risk as 6-8 monthly payments needed before payable - anyone tried one of these type of deals?

    Quorn mince has been a godsend but the vegan cheese tastes terrible. Its made with coconut oil. I put it on top of a pasta bake last night and it barely melts. It just turns hard

    I know for some people its a lifestyle choice but their shopping bills must be through the roof.

    The good news is that I looked after them so well that they might stay longer next time
