    First single I ever bought was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It mysteriously disappeared after quite a few plays. I think I must have been about 7 0r 8, saved up my pocket money for ages!

    Do you have wifi or data on?

    Top right there's some dots, click that and the remove option is there.
    Originally posted by fuzzgun19
    Yes, wifi is working, just tested it by opening a new website. No dots on the right of mine, I have always in the past used the way below.

    ive had that problem in the shop, but at home with stronger internet connection im fine...in the shop write down last 4 digits then delete at home.
    after you've used a code scroll down to where it says remove, click, and hey presto it should disappear

    Re Nationwide

    Does anyone know if the regular saver carries on after your bank account stops getting the 5% or do they both finish at same time please ? Tia xxx

    My regular saver carried on and I was eligble for a new one when the year was up.

    Tesco bakery hot cross buns 4 were reduced from 32p to 16p in my store. No yellow stickers just a SEL label. Went through at 32p! So free hot cross buns but of course I had to ask for the DTD. Might be worth checking your store.

    Good afternoon Seren,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us about our Robinsons Squashes.

    We're sorry to hear that you're unable to drink the squashes that contain artificial sweeteners but we do have a range called Fruit Cordials that contain a mix of sugar and a sweetener derived from a natural source (the Stevia Plant).

    There are three flavours in our Fruit Cordials range, we hope you try them and find a favourite within the range.

    Thanks again for getting in touch.
    Originally posted by Serendipitious
    That's good to know Seren, I didn't know Robinsons did cordials now.

    The coca cola life, the one in the green bottles had Stevia I think, not sure if it's still around don't remember seeing it in the supermarkets lately.

    I would still rather have good old sugar if I'm honest, according to the many comments on Ribena FB page, among the complaints, people are recommending Rocks Organic and some are saying Waitrose still does high juice without sugar but I don't know how accurate that info is as I'm sure DD1 said she couldn't find any in her local, not checked myself.
    Birds flying high, You know how I feel, Sun in the sky, You know how I feel,
    Reeds driftin' on by, You know how I feel

    It's a new dawn, It's a new day, It's a new life, For me, And I'm feeling good...
