    They've got lots of different types including pasta salads great for a cheap lunch.

    Have a good day in Liverpool

    Good morning all, another sunny one.

    Got an email through, download and register on the Sports Direct app and if England win tomorrow you will get a winners T shirt.

    I was planning on getting into local town today to check out SD and S's but didn't make it, thought no problem, will go today. Turns out I am working today. Could sometimes lynch OH!

    Still, I guess it will be fairly quiet tomorrow afternoon, better than being near any TV!

    There were some free hotel chocolate on OneTwo this AM but it seems between me claiming with 842 left and 60s later when I called DW and told her to claim they had all gone - apologies for calling her first rather than posting on here, I suspect my badge may be revoked?

    HUKD are reporting free brewdog but not on mine but then I have already claimed that.

    Good Morning Elite
    I have a quick question for the W experts.
    I have some 8 wys 40 W vouchers that came in a mailing. The last time I was there I got a till spit spit for 4 wys 40.
    So my question is, does anyone know if I can use them together and how much the till would need to see to use both vouchers in one transaction. Obviously they have different bar codes. Thank you

    So I notice the droid mitchell and Butler dining vouchers expire at the end of this month. These can be used as cash (ie in conjunction with other offers) so are there any other offers out there at the moment? I know there was a harvesters 241 but I think that has expired? Ta

    Well if you got the offer then I expect you will be allowed to keep it, mine was never revoked even though I got a wine glitch to myself once. Ask DM.

    And I still haven't received any conditional spends since they dropped the mypicks.

    Even the couple of small cashback shops I have done lately didn't give me any till splits.

    Hopefully it might have put me back on their radar. I did a survey the other week and there was a relevant question to have a little moan about it.

    I sympathise with DD. I am in the middle of having a new roofline fitted and besides the stress of will it be OK the heat isn't helping the three fitters. It's a full time job keeping them supplied with drinks.
    Have just re-seeded the grass, some parts didn't take due the the heat, iI think, doesn't matter how much i water. So i put more seed and compost down on Monday on the bald patches. Took me hours. Didn't think that the fitters would need to put loads of materials down on the grass : just thought it would all fit on the patio - so no chance of the new seed growing

    Aunt (91) had fall and is in hospital - 80 mile trip to visit. He mobile wasn't working so had to get her a new one and put 10.00 GiffGaff credit on for a month so she can call people as much as she wants. Only problem is after showing her several times and writing down very simple instructions, she can work out how to make a call but at least she can answer it.

    Mum's freezer on the blink this week so had to get her a new one and transfer everything when it had chilled at midnight last night.

    My house alarm kept going off, even when not on, so have had to have alarm man out and a new alarm box fitted.

    Will be glad when this weeks over!!!
