    Pepsi Regular cans also comparing vs 1.25 M:
    1x Pepsi Cans (8x330) 2.50 1.25

    Maybe they are 1.25 in M, but I just didn't see them or I didn't know?

    That was not one of my risks again - it was a womble.
    So at least my decision to go out when I saw one of my fridge shelves that had had Mullers on it now bare has got something more back. I just felt, if I left it to tomorrow, the Christmas Bakery would suddenly appear online. At least some longer dated ones than I originally got are now in my A. Or, rather, a few of them are now with me - I managed to pick up the last Chocolate & Orange Rice that was on the shelf. I wasn't struggling for different varieties anyway, although looking for longer dates pushed me to a different all Sains-comparable selection but I hadn't got as many of the Chocolate Orange Rice as my other store hasn't had them whenever I have visited it so far.

    There's no problem with the Pepsi 2L bottle also comparing, on the same receipt:
    1x Pepsi Regular (2lt) 1.29 1.25

    Obviously working out more expensive than the cans.

    A receipt with some nice high-priced pizzas on it. Sadly they didn't turn out to be ones that compare vs M - but they didn't lose anything either - simply gave "N/A".

    Sorry, just another thought. Can I put any old sim in it? Or would I need data? That could complicate things and I'm not very tech savvy.

    Thank you

    Visit their site and they sometimes have free postage and free activation offers (or go through the Check Availability page where you put in your email, don!!!8217;t finalise the offer if there is a charge and they send a free trial offer for 2gb or whatever - sign up to that then cancel easily on their website all the paid for services immediately when the SIM arrives .

    Went to 1stop to get my cider(s) and topped up one of the shops with friuit, toilet rolls etc to 10 and paid by amex. No email yet so guess 1 stop is definately not on the small shop list.
    Got all4one voucher from post office and already got email from amex for that one.

    If they are in, they stock 12 Andrex for 4 which become good value at half price .
