    Hello Frequent,

    We hope you enjoyed your first shop at Sainsbury's using your Nectar card.

    Good news: do 2 more shops and we'll reward you with 500 bonus Nectar points. See it as a welcome gift from us - and a taster of things to come.

    Look out for more emails explaining how you can collect points and redeem them on great rewards.

    Happy shopping,
    Sainsbury's.

    I've put in petrol 3 times, so 5 shops needed for the extra 500 points.

    A tenner of petrol in each car it is then.

    Does it say you definitely need to spend 10 per 'shop?'

    Otherwise you could just spend 2 x 1 instore?

    I've just put our recycling out, its a day early but I don't want not to be ablevto get it down the drive If the snow is deep. We'll see how many neighbours panic thinking its Wednesday and put theirs out too

    Mrsmac did you find the wax melts?

    Good morning all, grey day here, not even got a frost.

    Had a few flurries of snow here yesterday, but you wouldn't have known if you weren't out in it.

    I thought it was a new x-files - til 10 minutes in when I realised we had already seen these a while back on some American channel - bit of a let down, DH said he couldn't remember so I sat and ruined it for him by telling him what was happening next lol he then agreed that we had seen it and went to bed

    Never seen it on any American channel, been waiting for it to come here, enjoying it so far, a bit of a twist in it though Will say no more because of those waiting to catch up.

    It is going to be a problem - I also love Silent Witness so from next week X Files will have to be on catch up, this week I can get away with watching Silent Witness on catch up tonight in time for the next one tomorrow.

    Next stores never have everything in stock. In a select few fitted sheets they do regular, deep and extra deep. ;effort these I used to get from John lewis but nor great elastic on corner. The next ones have elastic the whole way round them. 2 years on still as good as new. Have a feeling they do white cream and a soft grey. I did have a matching quilt cover but needed ironing so gone back to sainsburys for my white quilt covers.

    As no Next store stocks everything they have a catalogue by the door you can look through as I presume if they don't stock it sales staff do not know it exists.

    It's funny, when I asked the SA swore that was all they had and they did no deep ones. She was getting annoyed with them because the sheets they had did not fit the mattresses they sold

    I know no store does everything, but they do have a large range, it is a big store. Anyway, I got a couple off Ebay when we got the mattress, they actually have elastic all the way round and are still good even after a couple of years' use. Beginning to think I should go that way again, will wait and see if I find some decent offers though, not desperate by any means, just prefer to have one in wash, one on bed, one spare.

    This is just my periodic hunt for decent deep sheets, they are getting easier to find but still not that common - especially considering you don't see too many shallow mattresses anymore.

    If they are points on different things then I would expect that they could be used together, no harm in trying anyway, if it is rejected you could always ask for that item to be taken off that shop and do it separately.

    Anyway while the muggles are going to supermarkets half an hour before closing they will be carelessly leaving receipts in trolleys all over the place to be tidied up
