    Lovely thank you!

    I'm sure it's much nicer than the S basics 2.89 that I've been drinking tonight!
    I bought a bottle this morning and did a taste test on the car park at 8.45 this morning to see if I needed to buy more!

    Must say it tasted better this morning than it does tonight.

    Do you think I have a problem?

    Perfect if you scan the magazines towards your 10 they'll be a real bargain.
    I scanned one magazine yesterday but left it on the side of the ss so that it would hopefully be put back and not wasted.

    Good morning everyone. unsure what we are eating at the minute as bought no woopsies for a couple of weeks and the fridge is still full and so is the freezer? I treated us to chis from the chip shop last night - they are 1.80 per bag now . I usually pay 10p for 2.5kg. Think it will be home made in future, although they were really nice.

They will want back what they have given you as they will say that you've had the benefit of that money previously.

    Do you have a welfare rights or Citizens Advice Bureau that you can visit?

    Bubbs I hope they manage to sort out what is causing the pain Its hard when it affects you day and night

    Scamps I have no idea how to look at UC but think asking for full written explanation to start with then follow this up with a visit to Citizens Advice. Hope you get it sorted

    Edit see TM beat me to it
