    Good morning all, cloudy here, supposed to pick up later though, not cleaning the patio in this

    I used to get the S cheap tea bags when they were 20p. I've still not found a suitable replacement. Has anyone any suggestions please?

    I'll catch up in the morning but goodnight for now, people!

    That's a bit random

    I was one of the girls who never got picked to play in a team and just left to do my own thing with a ball. So no good asking me.

    You can get any flavour classic pizza or a legera, the Romano ones are excluded. You can also pick an Al Forno dish if you would rather.

    I don't know what they do with the middle, they don't sell any mini ones do they?

    DD2 had one with egg and spinach, DD3 had margarita, and Mr TS had some vegan offering with artichoke, olive and vegan mozzarella, (he did change it to normal mozzarella with no problem as he is not vegan but does like artichokes).

    first time ive been in my asda for a while and the sel on a few of the wines were still there....but I knew my store wouldn't willingly give a gift card without causing a fuss, and as I want to keep a low profile...

    I have only ever had 1 giftcard, and that I asked for, but I had to fill in my name and address, is this normal ? just wondering

    Unfortunately I don't think it will as yesterday was changeover day (coming out of a multi offer). However, we have had it before where it was then going into a new multi and that appeared instore before online - so it may be worth checking if a new multi appears instore and check the online price (currently 95p each online for H3inz, no multi).

    Me too I loved it . We had a cracking team in school and won most things I also played for the county . I was goal keeper. The tallest or biggest were either that or shooter .

    I ordered that laptop from Wish last night, was having a quick look at the thread on my new phone. My son uses Wish, just means waiting a bit longer. Will be interesting to see what happens, be interesting if the laptop turns up and they try to charge tax, not sure if that will happen, they are in the US and Holland as far as I can see. But we only paid 2 for it technically.

    Morning all
    Green and skinny here, was blaming my iPad so glad it's not just me.

    My sister and brother in law are big steam train fanatics and were meant to be going on Tornado's first 90mph trip on Saturday. BIL is now sadly not well enough to go so they have gifted us their tickets. We will have five hours in York - anything bargainous to do there?

    Just checked my 10 tin soup shops x 2.
    Thanks Izzey.
    Wish I'd just bought 20 in 1 shop now but I feel awkward at the till with too many.

    Night everyone.
    Will catch up tomorrow, too tired tonight.

    You never know that might be my future.

    That's a good price for the Fairy

    We have a local store well I say store it's an industrial unit, not tried it yet but it sells stuff close to or past BB date but you tend to have to buy in bulk so not tried it yet.

    Anyone local to me it's called "Rogers" and thy have a FB page to show what they have in stock.
