    I have not tried it, but apparently acrylic or water based gloss does not go yellow.

    I know the oil based goes yellow, but it is hardier than water based, but I shall be sorely tempted to go with water based or acrylic next time now the kids are gone.

    One thing I should mention.

    I had a trial membership of Amazon Prime. I did the normal "set to not auto renew" and forgot about it.

    Something made me check when it was due to end and I realised it had not ended. It had renewed.

    I do not recall renewing it, I do not recall changing anything. Yes I have made reasonable use of it but at no time did I intentionally set it to renew.

    Fortunately I realised before I had made use of it and cancelled. I have also complained to Amazon.

    I KNOW I set up the "do not auto renew", I remember seeing on the page that my prime was ending, how they managed to sneak that one in I do not know, and if I didn't have so much in "gift cards" on the account I would try to stop using them, but it is free money

    What really annoyed me, apart from the fact that something wrong has gone on there, was that they charged it to my credit card rather than using my gift card balance. Maybe they thought that would be more noticeable

    Had a reply to my first email, they just covered the fact that I needed to have prime and I should renew, they ignored the fact I set it to not auto renew. This was a reply to my complaint, not just a bounceback. They are annoying me even more now.

    Morning all!


    I went to A's last night to use up some APGs that were expiring this Thursday. I only had 4, and all for fairly small amounts. I know that I had them all with me because when I was in the shop I got them out of my bag to add up the amount they came to so I made sure I bought enough shopping. When I got to the till I handed them all over to the checkout woman at the same time (they were each printed on an A4 piece of paper). Once she'd finished scanning them she handed me back a receipt, which confused me for a moment. She told me I'd only given her 3 APGs. I was a bit flustered so I just paid the rest, then searched for the 4th whilst she was scanning through my next shop. I couldn't find it at all . I asked her if she was sure that I'd only given her 3, and she said she'd already ripped them up and put them in the bin. She seemed quite grumpy and I didn't feel that I could argue with her.


    Now of course I still have the APG, as I could just print it off again. But my nearest A's is a 16 mile round trip, and I don't go that way very often, and the voucher expires on Thursday. The one that got 'lost' was the most valuable one at 2.72. Now, I know that I should probably just forget about it, but it's wound me up.


    In more positive news, the Imperial Leather Foamy Banana and Cherry Bakewell shower creams are reduced to 40p and 45p (I can't remember which way round) so I bought a few of those. There was another flavour too but it was sold out. Maybe passionfruit or similar?

    thanks for this. I think I am going to screenshot my settings.

    I am wondering if you are using the app on your phone - my theory is when apps update sometimes the settings revert back. I use instagram to take photos but when I try and share them via FB I couldnt as it says I needed to allow it in my settings. I know I have not changed anything - I even had to google to find out how to change it back so I know its not me that's changed anything
