    Good morning lovely peoples

    Hope everyone is well. I'm sick of the rain - don't know when I'll be able to mow my swamp

    Me this morning:

    Good thought "After my goats milk kefir I"ll have my usual handful of blueberries and fruit"

    Walking towards fruit bowl with coffee in hand

    Naughty thought: "Oh those giant chocolate muffins were opened yesterday, don't want them to go stale, Mmmmmmm! grab one to go with your coffee now"

    Good thought " keep looking ahead at the fruit bowl, keep going"

    Naughty thought: "Oh look, a solitary chocolate Barny Bear is lying on the biscuit tin, that would go really well with your coffee"

    Good thought " keep looking ahead at the fruit bowl, keep going"

    Good thought won - the first of many little Good thought v naughty thoughts battles

Coming back yesterday evening temptation raised its ugly head again but the price had doubled so I went away. Good thoughts pestered me throughout the whole train journey, pointing out that I wasn't hungry and wasn't missing them at all. After that naughty thoughts in A, when I was doing the wine shop, didn't have a chance!

    More mobile today, will rest the foot as much as possible as tomorrow we go to see Count Arthur Strong Luckily Fourp booked tickets when they first came out so we have stalls seats with leg room
    Night in Premier Inn too
    Hopefully I can go shopping if I get there early & then rest foot until we have to go to theatre

    Really pleased with house booked in Tenby - it has cheered us up no end Plus friends coming too & Fourp & his mate have bagged the bunk beds

    Bestest Llovelies - sorry I'm out the loop & wish everyone well

    Was someone saying the Robinson's website wasn't working? It is for me. Perhaps try a different browser?

    Did someone say there is a way to get them totally free please?

    I bet there are glitches that get missed as no one really wombles from Ts anymore now the brand match gets taken off at till.

    And I never do a "normal" shop in there so no chance of picking up any misprices for me.

    I wasn't sure if the SpecK was Adsa as the date seemed too "new" for that big glitch. Think you are right...

    OK, I have a problem.

    We have 200 + DVDs and abput 150 CDs They are currently on a swivel shelf but really need to get rid of that and find a different way of storing them, ideally so we can still see what we have and access them quickly.

    Been looking at the Really Useful 18 litre boxes but would need around 7 and would cost 64 (didn't even look at the postage) from the cheapest source I can find.

    So, does anyone have a better idea please? They will have to go into the spare room.

    Can someone help me as to what constitutes a 'supermarket' on TCB. I'm thinking of getting the toilet roll from a poundshop (with the 50p cb). Do you think that would be accepted?

    TIA

    I wasn't sure if the cereal box was from the same glitch. Not sure if it's clear the BB date is 2014. So yes 5 years ago sounds about right, I think that box was rescued from my mite infestation in what was my bathroom if anyone remembers that.

    Funny that the mites or what ever they were never went for the SpecK wonder if trying to tell me something.

    I think the boxes of Special K were in T, 3 for 2 rather than 3 for 2. I remember losing money on that one as my parents ended up nabbing most of them from me

    My last lot of Special K was from when Ts used to do their Wednesday errors, I cant recall what offer they got wrong that time but was enough for me to get straight down there and grab quite a few boxes.

    Edit - I see PK got the detail right

    I saw it on 10wys - an acquaintance went into a garage with T express bought 1 lot of the glitch then told the manager the price was wrong and the manager then refused the sale of any other boxes- how stupid of my acquaintance

    Evening peeps.

    I am totally deaf in my left ear. Build up of wax apparently. I've tried every method to clear it but to no avail! I'm due to have it syringed in 2 weeks. I've had it for 2 months now! It's just so weird going out as all the sounds seem to come from a different place!

    On a plus note. If you have the Robinsons vouchers, You can use them on the self serve in T's for the 2 for 2 squash without any intervention, making them free. Just use 2 at a time.
