    It's very difficult leaving go isn't it.
    You have to keep telling yourself 'not my concern', but if you know people you just can't help but think of them.
    8 years on and when my assistant manager died I have had dozens of messages about it, I had to go back into work mode to organise!!
    Concentrate on eliting (SP?), it saved me in dark times.
    There is another world out there away from work, I could have gone on for another few years but I eventually played the sick card, and haven't regretted it.
    OK we can't have first class holidays in exotic climes, but I have my health, my sanity, my family and friends... what more do I need?

    I can't justify buying beans as we never eat them except in a cottage pie & I'm still using the Heinz ones from when those strange triangular shaped 5 (?) packs went very very cheap in Ts, ahem a 'few' years ago 2015 is the date on them

    I still have half a gallon left of Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce dated 2012 = tastes fine

    Have we got to the bottom of timing on droid envelopes? I was in front of two santa atms which both had it and going fromone to the other I could swipe about every 10s but if I opened a second envelope in less than about 25s I got the not available message. If I had waited an opened them later at home might it have worked ok or is it the swipes that need to be a certain time apart? Thanks

    Note I google for contactless enabled atms and the first two in said were did not work but the santa one had a contactless symbol and was.

    Was only thinking yesterday I had not managed to find a decent cracker bargain this year yet, I got the huge tubs in Sainsbobs last year but there doesn't seem to be any stock left any supermarket down here. I picked up last 2 boxes of these

    https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/gb/groceries/jacobs-savours-flavours-assortment-250g

    in As for 1.50 box but they are actually better bargain if you can find them in Sainsbos.

    They are not the same as a good old cream cracker though...

    Wrong - full shelves of both sizes and didnt get there until after 5pm. Even managed to select the ones with ring pulls as these had later dates

    That's good, hopefully means the offer won't be pulled as quickly. People should be buying hundreds. Every 20 tins makes you a quid so even if you foodbank them you still win.

Good luck!

    No I still haven!!!8217;t worked out the best timing - I darent walk off without opening envelopes as I have had a number where the envelope didn!!!8217;t appear (probably a network issue).

    I just hang around and open each time (switching between accounts makes the timing it work in most cases ).

    Doesn't help that OH is the only one that eats them, and I tend to make sure he has them on a badminton night
