    Ahhhh, just tuned in and web pages have changed. Very disconcerting -
    I can now see badges with number of posts and years of service and a different symbol for quotes and multi-quotes and a green or red light.

    Thought it had changed to new look as first but it's not that.
    Has it happened to anyone else or am I just a freak !

    Edit -maybe it is the new one, gone to check.

    This is probably a stupid question, but could you mix the Crosse&Blackwell and Baxters Favourites vs Tesco? As long as you bought 20 of the C&B, and in 5s for the Baxters? I can't think why it wouldn't work, but I just wanted to double check. Also, could you add the Ainsleys Cuppas in to the same shop?

    Thanks!

    In the absence of any ground coffee offers, I have had to resort to an approved food order at 1.99 a pack, various ones from Taylors Harrogate to Caf! direct but there was on only 1 or 2 left of each.

    And after I ordered I noticed they had 500ml bottles of coke 3 for 1.20, I am sure it wasn't there before. Might be worth a look Izzy?

    I ordered 12 cans of Ubuntu cola 25p each as they have no artificial sweeteners, I know they won't be quite the same as Pepsi/Coke but at least a bit of support for fairtrade I hope.

    Huge kilo tubs of peanut butter for 3.99 the Pip and Nut make that doesn't include any nasties, ie palm oil or sugar. And the best bit it's still in date until jan 2019.
