    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

    Rant over

    Gocat does your mum-in-law have paypal? As our DS and his gf live in Spain the easiest way for us to transfer their birthday, Christmas money etc to them is into their PayPal account. If you select friends/ family the charge is minimal. All the family gave me cash for them this Christmas and I transferred about 350 to them and was charged under 2. Smaller amounts like 50 there's no charge at all. We find it the safest and easiest way and ideal for paying for the baby bits, stroller etc. HTH

    That is slightly weird TM. They are not even up to date. That Trotter chap won several years ago, think he even ended up in jail, I would be very surprised if he had any money left.

    You would think phishers would actually do their research before sending emails, a quick google does it

    OH said last night... do you have any APG's that 'need using up,' I have run out of beer.... before Christmas I used a glut of APG to get him 10 pks of 12 cans......I am tempted to say no..... he has drank 120 cans, and a couple bottles of wine in about 6 weeks..... but I do feel mean .... so I will get him 4 cans for the match on Sunday. (I am mindful that he could get his own beer....but I think he thinks I get his beer free ) Moan over.

They are large enough to make a turban. I bought a few in the a sale but took the ones back that I hadn't used as I thought that they were rubbish.

    I bought 3 bales, washed one set before use and found them ok.

    I also paid a vets bill (which I am regretting doing now, the vets visit as it sparked off last nights outburst)

    managed to pop to boots this morning and grabbed a couple of sleek sets and soap and glory ones for 5 each, DD2 will be my bestie until she gets one!!! Might try and drag that out lol Also I popped into superdrug there were a few new reductions but all gone, l'oreal mens deo 66p every flavour and some tea tree washes to 35p/87p these are also bogohp and a free mask wyb 3 skincare items, I picked a couple of other bits up but changed my mind as for what they were were too expensive for us lol but didn't take the mask out, however the mask still scanned through as free, so got 3 of the above and 2 masks for 1.40

    Morning all - we have had a bit of a snow flurry but it soon stopped ....

    We still seem to have quite a few people missing in action that have not popped their heads over the parapet in ages, seriously starting to worry about them now ...

    Has anyone got the No7 vouchers from Boots... any suggestions on what they work on..... clearly I would like free or extremely cheap.... my niece tends to get a few little bits and pieces throughout the year. As she is 17 now she is a little more discerning on what she will use.... why do they have to grown up!
