Why is it that we are always buying things from certain companies but the moment we receive some vouchers for those companies we can’t see anything we want to buy for absolutely ages and sometimes even have to spend the vouchers on something we really don’t want just because the vouchers expiration time is almost up?  Isn’t it always the way! 

I used to get vouchers for using a credit card and had a choice of vouchers so chose ones for shops we used regularly – well not any more, as we haven’t had chance to spend the vouchers yet.  We never used to get vouchers for anything but in the last few years we have somehow acquired quite a few.  We currently have vouchers for books and cd’s, a clothing shop, a do-it-yourself store, a bear artist, a bear shop, 2 online shops and a supermarket – all of which we used to frequent regularly.  There is nothing like receiving a voucher for that place to stop you wanting to buy anything there it seems.  I think I need to receive vouchers for a lot more places and it will cut down my expenses a lot more.  Can someone send me vouchers for council tax, electricity, gas, water and insurance policies so that I can cut my expenses right down J

We always seem to receive supermarket vouchers through the post either for things we have just bought and wont need again before the voucher expires or for things we never buy.  When we have shopped at one of the supermakets for some things we can only ever get there they end up giving us a voucher for £6 off a £60 spend if we go there again within 7 days – we never do as we don’t frequent that expensive supermarket very often and if we spent the £60 it would probably have been more than £6 cheaper at our normal supermarket.  Another thing that happens to us is that we end up getting a fuel voucher from a supermarket just after we have filled up with fuel and have no plans to go far until after the voucher runs out, so we either can’t use it at all or can only top up the tank with a small amount.

Anyway, talking of vouchers I will be doing a giveaway of vouchers or bracelets soon to my followers as soon as I can work out the best way of doing it, as I obviously haven’t ever done it before.  So watch this space…

The trivia snippet for today is:

A ten year old mattress weighs double what it did when it was new, because of the -ahem- debris which is absorbed through the years. That debris includes dust mites (their droppings and their decaying bodies), mould, millions of dead skin cells, dandruff, animal and human hair, secretions, excretions, lint, pollen, dust, soil, sand and a lot of perspiration, of which the average person loses a quart per day. Good night! 

And here’s the daily chuckle:

An old priest who got sick of all the people in his parish who kept confessing to adultery.
One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said, "if I hear one more person confess to adultery, I'll quit!"
Well, everyone liked him, so they came up with a code word. 
Someone who had committed adultery would say they had "fallen".
This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well, until the priest died at a ripe old age.
About a week after the new priest arrived, he visited the Mayor of the town and seemed very concerned.
The priest said, "You have to do something about the pavements in town. When people come into the confessional, they keep talking about having fallen."
The Mayor started to laugh, realizing that no-one had told the new priest about the code word.
Before the mayor could explain, the priest shook an accusing finger at the mayor and said, "I don't know what you're laughing about. Your wife fell three times this week."

And for those who didn’t see my post of this water bed on Google+ or Facebook this is really hilarious, or I thought so:
