    :dance: if only it was that magical to be in the overdraft, tbh i have plans to be well out of it next month (though car is going in for some maintenance next week) its just so nice with a student account cos its like a deep wishing well of money to use when you need it.

    Yeh just like online though some people on MSE have been getting parent codes off online (makes it £20) and one got a dim-witted store person who mistakenly entered it in 3 for 2 so they got 3 for £50!!

    WARNING: FYI everyone that buys count what you have inside as last year and this year some people have found a couple of things missing (not many but still).
    I don't know whether to buy one and give it to my mum for christmas and then just slyly use the stuff . She has used them before, I just dont know whether its appropriate for a present..

    I guess it depends on your mum, I know if I hadnt seen it and never having used the stuff (which i havent) that a big array of full size stuff would be fun. Surely unless there are certain things she needs then thats the whole point of a present like this to be something you wouldnt normally buy yourself and test out the range?

    Or you could split the stuff down, so that you can share it with your mum. That way you get what you want and your mum can try what she needs.

    I love soap & glory but I just bought loads of Elemis products and Liz Earle, so this would sit on the shelf for a while!

    Lol I dont envy you! My 2 arrived this afternoon and they are definitely heavier than i thought so cant imagine getting 3 home..in the snow when everything is failing. Did you check they had everything in? infrequent but still reported for this lot and the cold weather seems to make the plastic cover of the wipes fall off - all mine were present but one had the cover off though it still had the thin bit of the packet so i dont mind.

    I did check but thanks

    I've just about managed (by folding the boxes down etc) to fit them all in my small suitcase along with my dog's Xmas pressies. I then have another large suitcase for all my clothes/other non-Xmassy stuff - hope I get to the train early and can stash my luggage away! Thank god for wheely suitcases xx

    I hope there weren't too many people on the bus with you, and yay that everything was there it'd be horrible to go through that and realise you had to go back!
