    I can't help cjj......is it worth contacting them direct to see if it's the right procedure?

    I called in today to collect my Marksies orders. Over the moon with my half price shoes and a couple of limited tops for about 10 each. The jeans will have to go back and a sweatshirt......me? A sweatshirt......in this weather too .....
    can't even remember ordering it

    For the north eastern coven, 'Fiver Fest' in Durham this weekend - lots of special deals available from independent retailers see
    http://www.totallylocallydurham.co.uk/totally-locally-fiver-fest-offers-friday-6th-to-saturday-7th-july-2018/ for more details.

    Found this in the Durham Times as in Asda there was a promotion, if you bought the paper (60p) you were given a pouch Cake Angels frosting free.

    It was on one of the student money saving sites Susie


    Buy a bottle of Ribena through the Greggs Rewards app and you'll get an offer added for a free salad.

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

    Hi


    Anyone who has opened Royal Bank of Scotland current account for the cashback do they email you and ask you to upload your ID please ? Always worry about clicking links in emails but probably fine. Tia xx


    Just bumping this. Please does anyone know ? Much appreciated xx

    I can't get used to this weather. Day after day of sunshine. We are blessed. It so nice not to have to hunt around for coats and jumpers.

    Today I sat in the blazing sunshine in full view of the Cathedral and had tea and scones. A nice week off work ahead of me

    Options for tick boxes for yes please or no thanks. It definitely wasn't like that when I checked earlier in the year. And I definitely didn't say no to receiving anything. I also think I clicked to carry on receiving when they emailed with those changes in May but maybe that was just for emails...

    Oh well fingers crossed for both of us. Thanks again

    As long at is is cooked above 70C for 2 minutes it will be fine. As we cook it in boiling water for several minutes, there should be no problem. Just wash your hands well after handling taking care not to touch door handles, taps, etc.

    Going to be bloody expensive though.

    There is one option, though probably not on the cards, you can normally tell them about a condition and say you want it excluded. Probably not a good idea in this case.

    Have you got a local independent insurance broker? Might be worth a go.
