    I've bought machine dye & am dyeing some holiday clothes purple as the necks have been ruined by sun tan lotion but apart from that they are great condition,that hopefully will be purple instead of white with discoloured necklines

    Thanks TS I found the Williams Sure (22p) in SD - cleared the shelf as you can never have too many deodorants I still have some left from the MOCs from cashpoint all those years ago

    I visited Mr T's in the 'famous NW resort that has a tower' lol
    Fraid to say they have no happy down
    But then again I can't say i'm surprised, it probably went out of date as with Lango1966. I don't think it's very nice but I would have had another punt with it being free.

    Was thinking about getting some yoghurt, but picked up 10 x 6 packs of Corners Cherry and Berry) for 10p each yesterday. Sixty yoghurts for 1.00, so don't think I need to buy any more
    Can't believe that people pay nearly 4.00 for them

    Shower gel at cs? Or have I missed another 'episode'?


    Yes, I'll be there - mind you I'm not much good at sport questions or tv/movies, I don't really watch much tv, not bad at music questions though
