    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?

    Very envious of your 5 hours in York - when are you going?
    If you register with piture and piano their monthly newsletter comes with a code for a free drink - its right on the river so its a fabulous drinking spot.
    if the weather is good then get some picnic bits from Marks and go and eat them in museum gardens in the sunshine
    There are 3 Neros in the middle of town if you have full loyalty cards to use up for free hot drinks.
    Also Greggs if you have AP vouchers or the app freebie - also good for picnic bits for museum gardens.
    There are 2 Pizza Expresses if you have the app or the oooo2 5 meal deal etc, one is right by the river.
    Otherwise look at deal zippy and put in York - a few very good city center places with meal offers but check the regs, often not Saturdays and mostly you need to book. I saw BoboLobo the other day, a right blast from the past. There is a very nice Indian called 26 states by Cliffords Tower that is sometimes on Groupon - excellent food.
    There is a free guided walk that runs several times a day from the Art Gallery but its good to walk the walls anyway, not a complete circuit but there are a few places that you can get on and off at .
    We have been coming and going to and from York and Yorkshire for about 25 years, still not seen it all
    Its all very walkable - you dont need the hoponhopoff bus - dont try to cram too much in, far too knackering and sensible shoes as your feet will suffer

    I now use the Knightsbridge tea bags from Lidl, the red box ones are, I think, 1.35 for 160, I also use their decaf ones in the evening, and OH has the gold ones in the morning.

    Did you sort your DVD problem? Perhaps you can build shelves for them in a narrow corridor or behind a door or along a wall? You can get CD shelves from Ikea fairly cheaply and join them together with extra shelves (B&Q will cut them for you) or even replace the existing shelves with new shelves to make them wider.

    The only time I feel nervous is when I am doing a big DTD, not done a big one for a while now though.

    Yes I'd agree a large DTD is much worse than a large APG, atleast with the APG you can say it's been confirmed by asda system, so it must be right lol

    morning all missed a couple of days do you think the soup will work today
    Originally posted by bcw123
    Possibly. One of my As, which had changed its SELs on all the Heinz soups to straight 95p yesterday morning, had changed them back to ones also showing 5 for 3 by late afternoon. So maybe the offer was not ending but is being rolled over. If not, if your A has SELs saying 5 for 3 today, maybe get that pricing via CS and a 2 GC. They are still showing 95p on a.com. Has this offer really ended in stores or is it still on (like the Batchelors Cup Soups on the previous time the offer disappeared online but was still on them instore up until they... rolled back to 50p)?

    Anyone know about the wuntoo app. Errant son has the app downloaded but he is not with them - so his codes wont work.

    Just thinking of doing BI today - myself and Oh have our 3 codes as we are with 3 - For Errant son I could use 0002 5 meal deal.

    and AP to pay the bill

    mhoc, does your son have a 3 sim? You need to register the app with a 3 sim in it, then you can put your normal sim in and carry on using the Wuntu app. All the codes will work after that :-).

    Not yet. The space they currently occupy is going to be wiped out by a bird cage, the space they occupied before has been wiped out by various other things. If necessary the unit they are in can be moved to the spare room, but not ideal as no real position for it there.

    The ideal would be extremely cheap Really Useful Boxes in the 18 litre version, but they would have to be really cheap as I have worked out at the moment I would have to spend 63 on them. I am going to work out how many I could get in some under bed boxes I have found when I get chance. Problem is I want them all accessible and easy to view, so only one layer per box, mainly so grandkids can find them if necessary, and really have to accommodate quite a few console games too. Whatever I do it is going to hurt the pocket

    But now you have said that I am thinking that 3 sent us spare sims which I ignored them for the time being so they would still be in the in tray except they aren't so now I have to go in search ...

    I know I'm my own worst enemy - I can hardly move today

    When I had finished I sat on the wall between the patio and the garden panting and breathless resting, and I felt a little tap on my back. I turned around and it was my little dog tapping me with his paw - so cute of him as if he was checking if I was okay

When dh was coming to the hospital he would drop Bobby off at dd house and she said he sat at the top of the stairs for an hour each day he soon came down when it was dgd lunch time. Just like his mum food comes before anything

    Hopefully we will get some good weather next week and you can sit and enjoy your hard work

    Used my '50p off any Fresh Chicken Products' this morning.

    SA looked at my mini shop and at the coupon and said 'But have you actually bought any chicken?'

    'Nope, just chicken products,' I said, pointing to the box of eggs.

    Coupon accepted.

    Been to the 90% sale this morning.
    Same lady was there who has local 'seconds' shop in town. She buys trolleys full, her shop is now mainly marks stock.

    Worth a look is passing.
