    Morning all.

    I need to check into this. I'm wondering now if our hob is faulty.....that would make the third item

    The ring only heats up if the pan completely covers the whole ring......leaving none showing. Can this be right?

    I need some time off work as the jobs at home are mounting up again

    Woe is me but the sun is shining

    Interesting....I have just signed up on the same phone but different email addy to the PE app again, and looks like I am getting another free pizza. Now if you ate a lot of pizzas (hmmm, wonder who I am thinking of ) you could have free pizza every day there. (Thats if it does work, I will know in 6 hours.)

    This comparison surprised me slightly - I had meant to compare against S by buying the Linda McCartney sausages but M picked up the fishcakes, giving a slightly better overall APG

    8 items on your receipt qualify for comparison Asda Morrisons
    1x ASDA Pure Hygiene Family Mouthwash (500ml) 0.47 0.50
    1x Linda McCartney's Meat Free 6 Red Onion & Rosemary Sausages (300g) 2.00 1.77
    0.14x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Banana (order by number of bananas or select kg) (per kg) 0.11 0.10
    1x ASDA Wholemeal Tortilla Wraps (8pk) 0.95 0.90
    0.17x ASDA Grower's Selection Loose Carrot (order by number of carrots or select kg) (per kg) 0.08 0.10
    1x ASDA Semi Skimmed Milk (4pt) 1.09 1.09
    1x ASDA Farm Stores Strawberries (300g) 1.09 N/A
    1x ASDA 8 Breaded Cod Fishcakes (400g) 1.50 1.00
    1x ASDA Grower's Selection Iceberg Lettuce (each) 0.50 0.57
    Comparison total (compared products only) 6.70 6.03

    Morning all - sadly we seem to have lost the sun this morning, cold and overcast again ...

    We seem to be having a problem solving morning.

    Ive got towels in the wash as OH found some in the bathroom with dubious marks on and one of our cats has taken to sleeping in the bathroom. OH also came down to cat sick on the carpet - we suspect who is doing it but it could be either of 2 cats.

    In the meantime I rang the vets to get a repeat prescription of Ronnies meds but the receptionist said that the vet wants to see him again. Vet is going to do another blood test to see if the meds are working and Ronnie is on the right dose. We went a month ago and Ronnie has an overactive thyroid, so fingers crossed the blood test shows better results this afternoon.

    And OH is busy figuring out the 00002 sims - his also got the dreaded message overnight and this morning he cant even find his sim to add credit to.

    Also 2 of our cats were on the flat roof this morning sizing each other up, fortunatley both came down safely, one hasnt got much depth perseption and tends to be a bit clumsy so we were worried that we would end up with an emergency trip to the vets hospital.

    and its only 10 oclock ...

    I forgot to say, I have sorted my DD issue for now to replace T - 2 per account sorted .

    I read the thread suggested and have gone for the P0 Saving a/c ... I may have "a few" .

    It has bought time until l can work out a better way as I am sure some can be closed now.

    I need to decide which to sacrifice to B4rclays .

    I once played with the thought of account switching for the reward cash but I have been with Santander for a good few years now and want to keep it as my current account but I might have some cash to stick somewhere else if it's worth my while... got a LISA too but that's about it
    I wish I knew my way round investments but I don't

    TIA
