    Morning

    Mini cans still showing as ending today but can't see any good comparisons.


    Also ending Alpro (1.59/1.39 each) or 4 for 4.00.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda/bundle-752854_2604769.html

    The Almond Original (1.59) should compare to Tesco v 1.00 so would work out at 31p each.
    The Alpro Oat (1.39) would work out 51p each.

    All 4 Alpro should compare to Waities 3 for 3.00 offer (51p/31p each) but would need to buy 12 to match their offer (max 10 of one kind)

    Thank you Tweets, it was a very dark place for a long time. He suffered a shearing of the brain, big bleeds, broken neck, arm, leg, punctured lung. Life support for 5 weeks. Pneumonia, sepsis followed. Told to prepare for the worst. But I never gave up, every day at Southmead hospital. 5 months in hospital and brain rehabilitation unit in Bristol. He has traumatic brain injury but he is home now, walking, talking learning to ride a bicycle again. He is only 24, Lost most of his memory but by God he makes us laugh now. So proud of how far he has come on. I do try to keep up with the thread as much as I can. It's lovely to have this thread x

    Good morning all, a bit cooler here.

    Coreysnan, you and he have had a hard time of it, hopefully things will do nothing but improve for you both soon, there is nothing like being at home where you are loved and where all the memories are for recovering from something like that. None of us really know what you have been through, but we do know how far you have come, and that you deserve a lot of joy.

    Don't forget this thread is here for people, I know it has helped me through some rough times, you can say what you want on here without fear of judgement, we are all friends but a lot of us are total strangers and nothing gets back to your real life friends and family.

    I'm off work for 3 days. I'm doing house maintenance

    The thing is, there's stuff that needs doing, and if you leave it, it just gets worse. ......which is not very

    So we've put some time aside to get some jobs done which will free up time in the summer.

    Today we are tackling the drive which has fared badly over the Winter

    It's a long gravel drive which has been churned up with the snow and cars trying to move around. It has become bare in places with weeds poking through.
    I reckon it will take most of the morning. Then there's garage and stable doors to clean and fascias and soffits to wash down. I'm hoping we can get away without painting them this year.

    I like keeping the place looking nice

    As a reward I might go wine shopping this afternoon

    Cheers Anon.
    I was looking on HUKD as knew I had seen a data deal.
    Got voted cold, but seems like thats because it was a couple of quid cheaper 2 years ago.

    Three data sim - Pre loaded with 24gb data - 24 month expiry 43.43 @ amazon
    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/three-data-sim-pre-loaded-with-24gb-data-24-month-expiry-4343-amazon-2908289

    Dunno if its any good or not, apparently you can get it on ebay too.
    Originally posted by davemorton
    Thank you, I really need to get a sim deal sorted - I closed my EE after getting the 7gb/4.50 per month deal last year and nothing comparable has come up .

    I may have to go for Three 4gb - after cashback that works out around 5 for reasonable data. I spent years getting my contracts free with Cashback so am loathe to pay, but times have changed and there aren't the same deals any more, particularly when you want mobile data.

    Note to all - don't have home bb and mobile contracts ending at the same time, it is far too stressful!

    And to just add to the misery, I found receipts I hadn't uploaded to CoS from purchases last week and it is now too late.
