    Well with DM in charge need I say anymore.

    I think yours was a non runner on the first list and DM changed the rules to give you and Emerald a chance so he put you on the 2nd list.

    I even have DD1's summer quilt to wash as my machine is bigger than hers. She will be wanting that soon but I haven't wanted it hanging around indoors.

    Please can I ask pretty please is the soup glitch now fixed or does anyone think it might be OK for tomorrow???

    And also was it a sada v sainsbobs shop?

    and the real cost per can?

    Apologies I should have taken more notice ...

    Going to read back and just replicate someone nice list.
    I did have a good enough stash of Heinz beans and pasta etc which at least filled the cupboard but Errant son has been going through it at a rate of knots. I need to fill the gaps with something else so a Sada shop is scheduled for tomorrow - other than soup cans and porridge that is all I am short of - and cat food inevitably ...

    Yes it was me I search the news about him every day and follow the FB page that has been set up hoping to hear he has been found, don't know why but it has really touched me.

    It is amazing how much his family have been doing to try and find him so sad. Let's hope these were credible sightings and he is found, I read his brother and fianc!e have travelled over bless them.

    In the comments on the FB page someone said they couldn't post the latest photo as it's not clear it's definitely him and they can't risk being sued for posting the image without people's consent if it isn't him. The brother said at first they definitely thought it wasn't him and then he could see some similar characteristics which is why they have gone over with having the other verbal sighting too.

    Just checked my Amex and they have processed my refund for the weird pink jeans and put the full 19.50 back onto my card. In reality then the Breton top has cost me 2.50

    Fingers crossed now that the Marks Jeans I've got to collect on Sunday fit and look nice on

    Incidentally I've got to do a Boden return - has anyone done these and if so how exactly does it work.
    I used a 15 gift card and 21 in real money so would I get a gift card applied to my account or would they refund the money bit? Or would it be part credit and part refund...


    I got a striped Breton top and pink jeans but the jeans are that weird very fine needlecord so they are going back
