    Morning all hope everyone is well.

    Been awake over an hour worrying about work. Thought about it all last night too. I really can't go on like this. It's effecting my health.

    Hope LEJC is ok <3

If you cant face work any longer, then see what the alternatives are. Its such a shame as you really enjoyed it at the outset but theres other jobs out there Im sure. Good luck

    Big thanks to the kind person who encouraged us to go to the ref board and put our codes in. A kind person has used my shopmiumms code this morning - I think I get a free Lindt bar but its not showing on my list yet - will it take a few days, am I being impatient??? Free chocolate is always very exciting!

    I think it might be a good filler item for a
    a v Mr T shop

    if propercorn is still on the COS list and my store has restocked and I can think of a good enough comparison list ...

    Also can I ask what happens now. Do I delete my original message? How long before I can put a new code up? Will shopimumm issue me with a brand new code?

    My lounge looks like xmas has only just happened at the moment.

    It had all been cleared and tidy for New Year

    I had my bad stomach pains yesterday so couldn't get on and had other plans today. And now I have Jacobs to find a home for too.

    Yes that's the bit that really annoyed me - no hot chocolate. I don't suppose there is any point in asking if its possible either ...

    Our Mr T caf! was a Costa but its not any more - maybe they lost the franchise. Not sure who runs it now as some of them are franchises - Stafford caf! was.
    Chester was a Costa as well - so the free hot drink vouchers wont be accepted there???

    Thanks for the T mag info.
    2 out of my 3 T don't have cafes anyway!

    My T triple points card arrived yesterday, what a waste of a mailing.
    It can only be used once.

    Incase anyone has a Sparks card and an upcoming birthday the birthday offer is 20% off clothing, one usage and 10% off food one usage valid for a fortnight.

    sadly does not include alcohol so possibly it wont work on a meal deal.
    The clothing one - I am wondering what would happen if I bought a jumper in store - would it also take my jumper 5 off and then take another 20% off ... might be worth an experiment. Online I suspect it will only take one offer - it wont take the 20% off ...

    That!!!8217;s great mhoc, they get the chocolate and you get 4 referral credit added to your account. This means if you fancy buying something half price at 2 instead of 4 for example you get it free and 2 is taken from your referral credit. You always keep the same code.

    I was the one who initially bought shopmium over to our thread and I think about 6 people from here used my code, I still have about 5 of my credit left

    Over Christmas he was driving around with two trays of cat food - 24 tins in all - convinced they were going back to Asda - and then the morning cat food cans was very low stock and I needed the Asda tins he had taken the car and the cans to work with him
