Despite your Nectar Points offer, no way am I spending £40 in one hit.

And, good second attempt, but I am not spending £30 either. Get real.

And where is my bloody Tizer??? You and Barrs can stick that Irn Bru shite that resembles a glass of piss where the sun doesn't shine.

It’s almost impossible to go into Sainsbury’s and not spend at least £30

EBay sellers who post a listing with a ‘make an offer’ facility but then won’t accept any less than the ‘buy it now’ price 😣

Why have make an offer at all? Never understood that. No one will choose the BIN price so why not price at the amount you are happy with in the first place ? Waste of everyone’s time

I love Sainsbury's vouchers.


Wish they'd f*ck off out of Selhurst Park though.

Think you'll find that if you read the (very) small print on the coupons, they are no longer valid for alcohol purchases...

I live alone, so I manage to spend below £30 in one hit easily as I have to shop twice a week. I don't drive, so I am limited to what I can easily carry on the bus. And, if I can re-ignite the on-line shopping argument, I prefer to see what I buy - quality, dates etc. Plus, I prefer Aldi and Lidl for some things because they are far cheaper and often better.

I'm with you on the Selhurst Park bit though :p

What medication?

They're valid for beer, cider and wine that isn't on their 25% off promotion - only spirits aren't included.


Unless you live in Scotland, in which case you're fecked.

Here we go:

Furosemide 40mg a.m + 20mg p.m. - diuretic (although beer could also be a good diuretic too)
Ramipril - heart regulator/efficiency + blood pressure
Apixaban - anti-coagulant. I have to carry a warning card for this one.
Eplerenone - heart failure
Aspirin - blood thinner
Bisoprolol - blood pressure
Atorvastatin - reduces cholesterol
Metformin (twice daily) - for diabetes + helps blood pressure
Lansoprazole - eases stomach for the cocktail of pills.

+

Toujeo (Long-acting insulin injection)
Novorapid (Short-acting insulin injections 3 times daily mealtimes)

Not forgetting the pacemaker/defibrillator

I rattle when I walk. Some of them help as well when we are one up with 10 minutes still to go. If we are going to win the FA Cup before I pop my clogs, they are going to have to get their skates on :D

Oh that's horrible. It reminds me of that famous beneton photo from the 80s of a hand holding the daily medication of a typical HIV sufferer.

Does that mean that your blood naturally coagulates or clots, like the opposite of haemophilia? Is it hereditary or more to do with the cholesterol thickening the blood, or the sugar in your blood not being processed properly and thickening the blood?

Anyway, thanks for the answer.

Not exactly. Following my heart attacks and by-pass I have stop my blood clotting with the Apixaban as clots could be dangerous. Also help prevent strokes. It is a more modern version of Warfarin. The other side of that is that serious wounds will struggle to stop bleeding, hence my warning card. It is a consequence of heart attacks/by-passes.

The Metformin and Insulin is for the diabetes (Type 2, thankfully). Excess sugar in the blood can damage to blood vessels that supply all organs. Anti-Cholesterol reduces fatty stuff in blood and helps prevent the new by-pass arteries clogging.

I am a complete basket case :D

Winning bidders on eBay who ask if you can ship overseas instead as that's where they work. No I can't you freeloading French c*nt.

The BBC.

Andrew Marr goes on holiday (presumably because the MPs have buggered off too despite having work to do, but that is another issue) and the Beeb fob us off with a bunch of vacuous airheads. More dumbing down. The lunatics are slowly taking over the asylum.

The ridiculous over-exposure of Romesh Ranganathan

We are currently being bombarded with trailers for the less than enticing The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan on The BBC. This is on the tail of The Ranganation, Asian Provocateur and some bollocks where he went on holiday with his mother (comedians and their parents ... never seen that before) on the same channel.

And then over on Dave we've had Judge Romesh and a series of Taskmaster. Sky have blessed us with The Reluctant Landlord, a series of A League of their Own and some bollocks featuring him and Rob Beckett being unfunny. Not to mention incessant appearances on shows like QI, Mock The Week, 8 out of 10 Cats, Live at the Apollo etc etc etc

Kudos to his agent; he's clearly earning his commission but fecking hell. He's hardly an innovative comedy talent. Enough already. Is anybody out there a particular fan?


Romesh should stick to stand up.
The annoyance comes from celebrities travelling TV shows, something I raised on this thread earlier.
There are exceptions- I liked the Michael Palin stuff, the Portillo train stuff & Timothy West/Prunella Scales canal programmes.

People who don’t put trolleys back and simply leave them in a car parking space.

The suspicious look you get from passing motorists when you leave a public convenience.

Must have been the water melon for breakfast.

The term 'Street Food'. Shops and Restaurants are desperate to put this term high and wide as they thinks it's edgy and conjures up a cool notion. Makes me cringe more than annoyed.

People (kids) who find it easier to give up on something they find a bit difficult, instead of persevering and striving to improve.
