    Also COS have sent me one of those weird cashback offers via text again - free 1.75l coke zero and also 1 off eight-packs of cans.

    I am thinking that 2 coke zeros are about 1.75 each or 2.50 in sada and Mr T so that's another good addition to the list

    Have to do a search back to see if they are matching

    They had one of these a long while back, I was totally unconvinced but it worked - the cashback appeared on my totals.

    Sparks are showering me with offers this week.

    Postie has just brought me another voucher
    10 off nightware

    so I've got 10 nightware, 5 off jumpers plus 20% off clothing - assume its all full price items- wonder if they would all work together in one shop ...I have credit notes and AP 3 so it might be worth an experiment.

    Also this week they sent me the voucher they send you in your birthday month in an envelope festooned with cupcakes -Ive been with the premier club since its start and it was always an old fashioned afternoon tea, the lovely cafe girls brought it to your table on a stand with 2 pots of tea - sandwiches, cake and scones.
    Now its just tea for 2 - 2 sandwiches, tea and a scone
    Ironic since the outside of the envelope with cupcakes does not match the picture inside.
    The worst sort of shrinkflation

    I did have a rant on twitter to them about the lack of cake and the lack of notification about the downgraded offer but they are just ignoring me now. I am going to tweet them a pick of my free crispy creme dougnut if I remember to get it

    Good morning Elite

    Dry and bright start out there but Im staying in bed a while longer. Need to change my diet completely as for the last three weeks Ive been suffering with severe bloating after eating even small portions and horrendous stomachs pains. Advised to cut out wheat and possibly dairy . No more Lurpak or cheese as I know it.

    Snap ant sorry to hear your sister has reached that stage but itll be worth it. She is in my thoughts daily as are the family

    Underperky. Hope today finds you well, Im forcing myself to take one step at a time and slowly. Trouble is, I see grandchildren and forget my resolve . End up acting the goat with them

    Hope everyone well, not too much under the influence of flu or colds. I hear there are loads of bugs on the attack up and down the country.

    Hugs to the Elite poorly, special thoughts to those low in spirit and mind. Youre all in my thoughts xx

    I got the 5 off jumpers, rather annoyingly all the sale ones under 5 are sold out in my size.

    I keep getting emails from them to trial food delivery - just spend 35 or more and get free delivery. Much as I adore their food, if I were to spend 35 or more I would hope it would be in a glitch or I would have vouchers

    You all must have massive houses.
