    yes I went to B & M - 2 sets of silver tree baubles and silver wire bauble hangers (useful also for plants ) - 30p - happy enough with that. I would have liked wrapping paper, if only some for wrapping Christmas shoe boxes - might have another look over the weekend .

    Eldest child got Christmas tree shaped choc ices from Iceland for 10p for a box of 3

    Lost 20 of APG vouchers, they were showing expire 06/01 and I had planned on using them tonight to place an order. Now I'm not sure whether to ring and complain and risk flagging my account or just take the hit. What would the Elite do?

    Panicking a bit here can anyone please advise

    Kitten went for his 2nd vac and micro chip last night.

    Tonight ive felt a pea size moveable lump sort of at the part where his front leg joins his body.

    I've googled and I see that lumps are common after the vacs but everything is saying the lump is at the sight of injection which is scruff of his neck. His is a couple of inches away.

    He was checked over by vet at 1st vac and also at 2nd vac. I've thought I've noticed lumps on him before but that was just his ribs and this is different. I'm feeling guilty if ive missed this as I could of asked the vet last night.

    Has anyone any experience please ? Tia xx

    Edit thinking about it cats protection league checked him over for ticks as he came from somewhere where they were common so I think they would have spotted it had it been there before?

    Happy new year...

    After a Xmas break I'm back. And still pondering the AP thing. Can't get hold of a phone that it works on without buying one.

    Are people still getting decent prizes?

    Also, if anyone is booking travelodge there is 50% off on Friday and Sunday stays on their site. Just got a family room for 18 quid in half term.

    It may be worth it but I wouldn!!!8217;t be spending a lot on a new phone. Hopefully someone has phone suggestions now the A3 promo has ended.

    Press down on part of the code and a selection will come up - then use the little dots hold down and extend the selection to cover the whole code, select copy then paste in the Am4zon code box.

    This is the general idea - it may be slightly different on different phones.

    Evening everyone xx

    hope you lovely lot have had a lovely day x

    Went to town with ds today, which was the first time in a year!! Due to my pain, anyway can I ask for some device please x

    we popped in hollister today which was a desaster!!

    I couldn't gtet round the shop in my wheelchair (I got stuck every way I went)

    my son and a random stranger had to move the furniture out of the way just so I could get passed

    then to top it off
    they charged me twice (which come to nearly 60) for my ds jacket which I didn't notice because the till are so high up I couldn't see property

    I did notice before I left the shop went back to say about it and asked them if my money would of striate back in my bank which then I was told it takes 3 to 5 days I explained that its just after Xmas and I really haven't got the money in my bank for 60 to come out in one go because I really am skint and I told them that the money they took out was my food money and if I go in the red at the bank would they pay the changes due to it being their fault, the manager come over, rang customers service (i think or it was head office not sure) and told me there was nothing they can do

    by now the shop was packed and I'm in tears, my poor son stood there worried about me cause he knows how bad my pain can get

    I said the worst thing is, you could take the money out of your till and I could go straight upstairs and pay it right back in right now!!! But she said she cant do that because I paid with my card I had enough by then so just left because I wasn't getting anywhere

    so about 5 min after I left the shop I trid ringing the number she gave me and its not recognised I couldn't go back in there again

    is there anything I can do about this? Please


    Im so so sorry for the long rant xx

    Sorry you had a horrible time, Lou. x

    Could you message your bank and tell them what's happened, then maybe they would forego any charges knowing the refund was due.
