    Morning luvlies

    Not caught up yet so may have already been posted. S have reduced their kids Xmas fancy dress costumes to 1, someone posted on fb - not shown as reduced in my store but scanned at 1. Got the babies up to age 5-6.

    Costumes to look out for are elves, angels, shepherds, wise men, sheep and cows. Originally 16 so got some lovely bargains.

    Ideal for a nursery/ play group for those who help out in one

    I do and I have not been able to get one of these yet
    It can be a bit salty, it depends on who makes it, if I get one that is salty I use it in cooking to season
    The air reacts with the meat so if left out uncovered then it does go a little leather like , if it goes like this just dry fry and crumble it up and sprinkle over different foods

    Still in bed, grumbling tummy ache from too many nuts

    I was chatting to That Sister who has an enormous appetite now due to the steroids & has been escaping to a Ts Express for 'tuck'

    She is being picked up this afternoon to come back for weekend, another 6 RTs completed & 2 Cetuximabs

    I've used a few AP vouchers for MnS with no ptoblem before, but struggled today.
    I was at an MnS i've not used them in before, on SS I did a coke first that worked fine.

    Then bought a full price salad, and a reduced curry total 5.20, typed in the code and it only took 3 off! I went back and tried it again but it said it had already been used.
    SA came over and took me to another till, she said that till was playing up so put it through manually as 'Coupon Tendered'.

    I then had some festive bog rolls in another transaction, and again she put it through manually.
    Bit off putting as I don't know if these mocs will still work.

    i dont think they do work against reduced stuff,i read before christmas someone posted that an ap voucher didnt work with reduced stuff.i tried with a yellow label and full price item only took the full price item off.i wonder if its set up like sparks vouchers which dont usually work with sale stuff.

    Good morning all!
    Does anyone actually like that Serano ham?
    I really liked the look of it, so was delighted when they had tasters on offer last year, I was so disappointed, it tasted like salt, and had the texture of old boots!
    My unsophisticated pallete maybe, but just thought i would share. x

    The tree is fine and DH is really upset over what he has done. Off to garage this morning to see what they say - main concern at the moment is if the car is OK to drive. We are flying from Heathrow in a couple of weeks and if the car is off the road we are completely stuffed. This is not a good start to 2018.

    Bless isn't quite the word I was thinking of ! Anyway, car is in for repair- they reckon they can get get a bumper delivered by Monday and we can have the car back on Tuesday afternoon. So the trip to Heathrow will be OK. Luckily they had a courtesy car I could have. Cost is 750 or thereabouts - which is good news for DH as he thought it would be at least 1500.

    I have let him out of the doghouse.
