    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Thank you SCAMPS
    I ordered 10 gammon but had 5 substituted for the ones in the 3 for 10 offer but only charged 80p each fro those one 1 each as expected for the 'offer' ones
    I also ordered items on cos for m.com as its difficult to get to the 40 min spend, the stuffing was unavail but no sub given
    malthouse ordered and sub with a nicer sub
    orchard thieves now claimed back on cos

    I like di had the G+t still in my basket but unfortunately took them out of my basket before my order

    Scamps is doing well gammon and wine -
