    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

    I know and both washes sheets and then towels were long ones so it was too late to put on another long wash, wishing I had put a delicate wash on now though as it is still really nice out there and would have probably dried this evening. Still hopefully get on top of it all next week.

    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.

    But I wasn't using the 's to show possession or form a plural - I was using it informally to show a contraction - and now I've started a sentence with a conjunction

    I missed the whole race....I was buying icecream

    I had an email from hduk before I left and slung one onto my basket and then the penny dropped. I bought 6 but then got bored

    I have a voucher to use tomorrow. But unsure if I'll get anymore
    I haven't decided if I like it yet

    Baking potatoes are 70p in S, so 50p back on GJ

    Also bought honey, Lenor and digestives too for GJ
