    Does anyone know what T bedding it like?

    I was looking for covers and sheets, did you notice if any fitted sheets were reduced please?

    Do they do deep ones, I hate struggling to get the corners in.

    Morning all!

    Thanks for the reminder about the Ribena, I 'played' once this morning and got a free bottle.

    Also thanks izzey for the milk, I'll definitely be making use of that today!

    Had no end of problems using these vouchers, Sada were most unhelful even though the comp was on the bottles they sell. Refused point blank because the vouchers didnt scan!

    I've used one at T and Wilcos this morning they scanned fine.
    In my experience Asda are cwap to a high degree at taking coupons.

    Thanks to all the advice about bed sheets I'll have a look.

    Made a trip to T this morning, only saw a handful of reduced bedding, but was either oos or wrong size and don't think my teen lads would appreciate a floral duvet cover lol.
    On a lighter note, I remembered about the Happydown, had a look and bought 8, there was only 10 on the shelf.

    ..unfortunately they were all out of date. Refund given no probs, and 8 confirmed on cos already

    I've just bought one of the 9 boxes of whiskas from A. Oh will go mad if he finds out.
    Can't keep it up though, as much as I love them, I don't want the expense, work or problems of another one.

    O2 Priority, I've finally got round to getting a sim with 10 on it.

    Paid 6.60 from seller kiiko https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B001KPSSUI/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

    Can I ask if anyone knows if one sim will work in multiple handsets?
    Do you have to leave the sim in, or is it as before and can be removed once 'registered'?

    Actually if you have a spare phone which is not contracted that will accept an 00002 sim then that is a good price so you would have 2 0002 phones - from August 14th you can get a Neros hot drink on a Tuesday or a Wednesday so by paying this much for the sim you would be back in profit by week 3 - we get the large hot chocolates with cream and sprinkles cost 3.40 I think.

    If any of the other nice freebies come along as they do occasionally - this weekend it was a 4 cycle pump from Halfords and yogurt raisons from Holland and Barret so you would be in profit after just a week!
