    I would just say that I'd changed my mind and I didn't want it anymore. I doubt I'd get into trouble for putting a free magazine back onto the shelf!

    Good morning Elite.
    Hoping everyone is warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not so. ((cjj))

    Thankfully the wind has dropped. Hopefully everyone's outside possessions are where they left them!

    Just putting the kettle on if anyone fancies a cuppa..........

    Good morning all, wet and rainy here, so dull it feels like I need the light on.

    Think I'll take you up on that cuppa Pacifica

    Thinking of you cjj, you have a home here, have a rather inappropriate cuddle

    Running late, probably due to the lack of brightness in the sky, but it really does not matter as I will still be able to clear the kitchen cupboards, doesn't take that long.

    Could someone let me know what time M&S does their whoopsies on a Sunday please, don't normally have chance to go whoopsying but today I can so it might as well be M&S whoopsies

    Good morning all

    A nice autumnal day just now DH is going to work as the high winds scuppered two small jobs last week

    Tonight will be a fish supper as babysitting and they eat at 5pm Way to early for us Later we are bringing the dog home with us for a wee sleepover Lovely, it snores worse than me

    Take care and Cjj remember we are here for you

    I have "a few" too - I always (briefly ) feel guilty getting the magazines, removing the vouchers and recycling them. Same with W .

    I just keep one copy of the W magazine and put the rest back once I've been through the till!

    A productive morning so far. Swapped my home insurance to Axa - no cashback but saved 50% on renewal quote from current provider - plus extended my meerkats. Then switched energy provider. I've gone with Pure Planet - they are quite new and no feedback yet via the MSE Energy Club but no exit fees so I figured worth a try as I will now be green for less than I was paying on my current fix (which runs out shortly and everyone else was more expensive.). Will see how it goes.

    Ive never heard of ecobricks. It is confusing as to what plastics can be recycled, I wish companies would just use all recyclable.
    Ive also been recycling clean plastic bags in the Sainsburys bag bank thing, I read (think on here) they take any bags not just carriers.
