    Morning all

    Not doing porridge today are we?

    Was annoyed with OH yesterday. I got him 12 packets as its one of the few jealthy things he actually likes to eat. He;s a very picky eater and spends the day snacking on sweets.
    Anyway, he said, o why dont you go this evening (yesterday evening) and get some more. Im like, Ive got enough and its too cold. He says o think of all the money you will save over the year. This is the bit that gets me. He thinks nothing of sending money abroad to his mum (which I dont mind) but doesnt shop around for the cheapest way to do it and it cost about 40 in fees each time. But if I mention that its o all you go on about is saving money. Bit ironic isnt it

    Good morning all, lovely morning out there, cold and frosty and bright

    Omg deep conversations tonight.
    Did God create other planets and if their is life on them did he create that life.
    Do Christians believe in Dinasours. How can they.
    Who created God.

    I think my head hurts and it's time for bed

    For PC reasons, I cannot answer that

They were in full bloom and thought would barely last till Christmas. They lasted till end of January Was really pleased. Will get some more like that if the amex deal happens again this year and the local garden centre is one of the places lol.

    Is this a store where they watch you/pounce on you at SS or are the voucher BC and receipt TC still working at SS (obviously in another A, not the store at which staff pulled you away from the SS and stopped you putting the vouchers through)?

    At this store, they worked before today on SS but I didn't get as far as pressing buttons before the SA saw I had an APG in my hand on this occasion and told me it wouldn't work on SS and took me off to CS.

    It may be that it would still technically work (with the typing in method) but they have decided to do a check or someone has been faced with people scanning and failing so assume it does not work.

    I have chatted to till supervisors before and they are well aware that every system update on the tills seemed to make it worse and they still dont seem to have been able to resolve it. It should be so straightforward - scan voucher, scan receipt, done.

    its store specific, either the manager has a bee in his bonnet, or some customers are abusing.

    I think porridge is the only healthy thing mine eats as well but he thinks it gives him carte blanche to eat any amount of junk.
    We brought back a box of sherbet dabs from the party at the weekend with about 22 in and he is working his way through them, I don't think it will take a fortnight.
    If it was just a short term mass overdose of sherbet dabs it would not be so bad but its that as well as pepsi/coke, chocolate, cake and biscuits etc.
    MY OH also thinks I am obsessed with saving but to me I would rather scrimp and do without things we don't really need and then spend the money saved on something meaningful - a day out, an activity, something that creates a memory ....

    A message from my son we refers to my son

    We have owned since new (shared ownership scheme), we were first owners from new. The whole complex heating and electricity is done through E.on. Once we moved in Affinity Sutton (the housing association who we pay rent on the % we do not have) let E.on know we are in the building and set up the account. They (Affinity Sutton) told them that we were on a Housing Association tariff (were they pay the daily standard fee as mentioned before) we are not. We are just normal home owners. This has just come to light now. E.on only process what Affinity Sutton told them so I can't see it is their fault. My thoughts are it is Affinity Sutton for providing the wrong information


    Son was at work till late yesterday and missed a call from eon
