    Cheesey people here too! Rarely eaten with date and yes, at times, a fair bit of 'trimming' goes on. Our stack is sadly depleted as DH aka Grumpy Knickers, has taken to providing 'snacks' when he and his friends go to the micro pub in the next village, he has used up the real french pre Christmas Roquefort that wasn't even runny yet and the post Christmas Stilton.

    I will rephrase 'he and his friends go' in reality I take them and pick them up 2 hours later, they are all deaf and only Grumps wears his hearing aids, the conversations are unreal at times!! MY BF calls it my second voluntary job, 'P P P Pick up a Pensioner'!

    All it says is
    PPP
    Have I got to collect a pensioner from somewhere and I've forgotten who and where.
    I would put a picture up but the reminder has my name and emails etc but I swear that's what it says PPP

    Hello everyone. No time to catch up but thought I'd post the yoghurt results from this morning in case it helps anyone. AvS

    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    4x Muller Corner Red Cherry Yogurt (150g) 2.72 2.00
    2x Muller Light Fat Free Orange with Dark Chocolate Yogurt (165g) 1.36 0.70
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Vanilla & Dark Chocolate Yogurt (165g) 0.68 0.35
    0.1x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Parsnips (order by number of parsnips or select kg) (per kg) 0.11 0.13
    1x Muller Light Fat Free Strawberry Yogurt (175g) 0.68 0.35
    0.08x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Onion (order by number of onions or select kg) (per kg) 0.06 0.06
    0.16x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) 0.08 0.09
    0.17x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) 0.13 N/A
    1x ASDA 50% Less Fat Creamy Coleslaw (600g) 1.00 N/A
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.37 4.03

    Almost missed out on the 8 items as the loose banana and the coleslaw didn't count as the comparison so it only compared 8 different items. It's the first time I've needed the two extra items I always add to a shop. I bought the bakewell yoghurt as the trigger and didn't count that as I knew it wouldn't show on the APG.

    APG was for 2.75 so the yoghurts cost me 25p! Wasn't sure about some of the flavours to shifted to corners.

    Happy Birthday Emerald Have a lovely day. xx

    I've been getting all my freebies for my birthday month coming through too.

    PE free bottle of Prosecco Hope it will work with O2 5 codes. And got another offer from them for free dough balls today. I may get a hattrick if they all work together.

    Bit disappointed with my sparks one this year, last couple it's been a fiver to spend on anything. This year it's 10% off food and 20% off clothing, beauty and homeware. I have been sent the vouchers and loaded them to my card so not sure if I will get 2 goes. Maybe if I use them in certain order I might?

    I would like to thank all of you who wished me Happy Birthday today.

    I ve had a nice day and the weathers been good too always a bonus.

    I did a bit in the garden first thing then went to town and collected a few birthday freebies Cream cake and a bottle of Coke Zero from Greggs, a cookie from Subway and 5 off The Body Shop.

    Had a mint milk shake at Cafe Nero then went to The Beeches for my free meal . I had a steak, fries, peas and tomato !!!127813; worth 16 odd. Went with Lee and Dawn, Darren was working.

    Then I went to Broughton which is a shopping centre and bought pj s reduced to 4 from 15 and a dress for 3 from 15 from the Asda there. Had lots of nice cards and presents

    Well days like this when I am in a world of my own, I knew there was a reason why I have not been to Ts yet.

    https://www.facebook.com/bournemouthdailyecho/videos/10155765998767832

    Honestly watch the video I would never have got their with my low profile tyres and walking well you will see.

    I have been so wrapped up in my little world I have no idea if it has affected our water, we are close enough it should have, but I haven't even had my shower yet today, one of those days. Mr TS just had his so guessing we are ok now as it's electric shower and water comes straight from the mains.

    Just thought it might be a good whoopsie night. If people stayed away from the Ts that is on that flooded roundabout.
