    Morning paw sniffers

    I was sick of getting wet yesterday and it looks like today will be the same.

    Perhaps we are missing out Spring this year

    I drove through lakes yesterday as the fields are sodden and can't cope with anymore rain
    At one point I thought I wouldn't be able to get home as I turned around on two roads, not daring to drive through the water. You know you have to drive through slowly but your instincts are telling you to put your foot down

    We had to be up at the crack of dawn as the boiler man was coming.....no heating or hot water for two days. He said that he'd come up the back lane and someone has dumped a load of rubbish in the middle of the road......not even the side of the road but smack bang in the middle What's wrong with people?

    I've a feeling we'll go straight into summer after this wet spell.

    This winter has been so long and so cold and this damp Spring isn't helping, it seems ages since we had sunshine and warmth at the same time.

    Hope the council clear the rubbish quickly. I drove through some pretty villages on the Cheshire border the other week and I noticed someone had dumped a load on the outskirts of one of them. There's just no need.

    I hope you find a decent offer, vaguely think I read that small 500ml bottles were pre sugar tax prices in one of the discount stores, not sure if that size would be any good for you and sorry can't remember which store it was.
    Originally posted by Tinyshoes
    Good morning, thank you TS 500ml just a bit big for me, have a 1 lt a day restriction so that's half my allowance, I don't stick to it religiously it's impossible but I do my best, another dull day and no doubt damp later , doing a mhoc this morning I have loads on the todo list so shouldn't be on here

    You just prompted me to get PE app and my free pizza hadn't arrived either - but then I noticed it is explicit about what you have to complete in the profile, including two restaurants and favourite items, and needs to show 100% complete . I had missed this as we only normally go to one and I couldn't be bothered saying my favourites . It now says 100% complete so hopefully it will prompt it to generate the free Pizza now .

    Does anyone know if there is an age restriction on the PE app please as I shot by the T&Cs ? Just wondering if Little Anons qualify?

    Many thanks

    Also I've had my first Iceland mailing which says between 11th of April and 13th of May spend 10 instore, three times, online or at the warehouse and use the bonuscard and then on 19th of May 5 will be loaded onto my bonus card to be spend by 3rd June.

    I suppose it will have to be chicken.

    Have to have a look at my visa offers now - very sometimes Iceland is on the list.
