    JF is 2 for 9 v T or W - so 2.05 each. Best would be v S or M at 1.60 each.

    Only mentioned sainsbobs for the JF as they have more and Morries comparisons unreliable.

    However since this morning someone found couple of JF confirmed against Morries on a womble 6 v 4.00. Third JF was N/A though

    When we were going down the bypass the other day there was a chap with his scooter parked up on the grass and he was hack sawing up sticks - I imagine small enough to go into his rucksack

    Mad at myself now as we were in Morribobs this afternoon and I didn't even look at the right section.
    Errant son is going through the Heinz stash 2 cans at a time so it wont last that long ...

    I've got Morribobs gift vouchers as well - discounted from OHs works scheme so even better

    My local had four of the flavours, I didn't know about the beans when I called in this morning.

    These could be the beans if they are 25p

    Not at all - I use Apple and have bought Droid just to play .

    It is a shame we didnt fully understand it early on and how to activate additional accounts, as we could otherwise have potentially won even more . The HeSBC version would particularly have been great to play for longer.

    My suspicious behaviour at Bclys till today netted me a coke, 3 M&S, 3 X 3 Gregg's, 2 x 10 Dine out and a 20 meal voucher (over 2 phones). I decided to use this rather than the STDr as one of my cards is Stdr and their ATM message asks me to use card whereas Bclys says cannot read card. I didn't want to flag my account with Stdr so hoping the fact this ATM says they cannot read the card won't flag my account anywhere.

    Ive been trying to remember but my brain just isnt being helpful... we need someone to remember what we did in the biscuit glitch for this and I think it was maximum of 20 items per day per card but I wouldnt like to say for sure x

    Screen shot the post about the extra points at M last night on the dark side but forgot to post it

    Anyway, last time we did the this in M I remember buying the Foxs crunch creams, taking them out to the car and waiting for the points to show on my app, going back in buying a small banana, getting the Morries fivers out the Catalina and doing it all again. This way I was never parting with more than 10p of real money at a time. This happened when my sister and I were speaking to each other and I was handing over bags and bags of biscuits for her to take to a local shelter.

    Cant remember how many I bought but it must have been in excess of 200 packs. However, I do remember doing it on several cards so 20 items per day may be right

    Evening all, finally managed to get a trip to Bluewater today but it appears most of the sales are finishing !!! seems to be really early this year. Loads of stock left in Mr Shoes but its manic there when it goes to 75% so will probably give that a miss. Did manage to get some bits from JL that went through the till at half the sale price though which made it worth the journey.

    Afternoon all - feeling rough which a shame really cost it looks nice outside yeah I know it will be cold but it's the sort of day I could up my step count. Got like funny sensation in my left ear - it's a bit like white noise. Think it must be the leftover cartaah from the headcold I have. At least the headache has subsided.

    Not a brilliant start but hopefully I will have the energy to pop to Ms for beans and soup.

    AJ don't be naughty and take it easy. Di sorry yr op has been delayed but it's sounds as though it mightsuits you better. However have to agree with Blacklist - money tight at this time of year. I had to wait until a pension was paid into my account before I could make a contribution. Glad I don't have to wait until end of the month like most others.

    Bubbs I know you have to move out every year but don't understand why. Gosh it must be a real pain just after Xmas too.

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday folks. xx
