    Good morning everyone. Been out and got my cheese from lidl. Dated 29/12 which is good. Has anyone else noticed an absence of freeway fizzy pop in lidl/ Dd loves their coke zero but not seen any for months. Getting the Aldi instead which is not quite as nice.

    I also did 3 more asda shops to use my apgs. Lady on the till told me they were stopping it because people actually pick them up and use other peoples I just nodded as I used 6.

    I am starting to get sick of shopping. Is anyone else feeling it is a chore to use them up, but still picking more up each time you shop . Think I will be so glad when it ends as I will certainly be spending more time at home and using up out of the cupboards & freezer.

    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.

    Does anyone know about car engine oils?
    I need some oil in the car and was wondering if it had to be something specific, or can I just buy a bottle from home bargains?

    I thought it would have been done in the full service a few months ago, but just checked and it’s empty!
