      Yum Yum - for a while!

      Signed up for this service and found it fantastic for a while, however soon got a little bored of it and found the price a bit over the top for a snack - I suppose part of the problem is that you get 4 containers per box and I end up eating all four at once so it does work out cheap. If you managed to only eat 1 a day them it would work out cheaper.
      Found their website easy to manage and you can select what you want, but do find the selector a little wooly - bin, try, like and love! Bin works, have never had anything that I have binned, but the other 3 to me seem like a hierachy with try meaning send me occasionally (or even just once) like send me regularly, and love send me often. My experience is that these 3 choices don't make a different one way or another - you just get them at a frequency that suits them! Perhaps some extra information on precisely what each one means instead of the pseudo chatty / friendly statements one their website that really mean nothing specific.
      All in all, food is good great for a treat, but think in these austere times will soon get sick of it.

      Fantastic service and price, staff friendly and effiicient, but look out attitude from a certain opt

      Have been a regular at Tesco opticians for a couple of years now both with my daughter and my mum in law. With the exception of 1 visit, where my daughter had a very obnoxious optician we have had great service. We have always found the eye test to be thorough and accurate and the price, delivery and fitting service second to none. The team leader we always deal with is courteous, efficient and knowledgable and obviously goes the extra mile to ensure customer service is number 1 - additionally the other ladies always seem to be helpful and focused on doing a good job. We will refuse to have anything to do with 'that' particular optician who nearly undid all of the great work the rest of the staff had done, but we decided that he shouldn't ruin a good thing. We haven't seen him since so don't even know if he is still around. It is local, longer hours, better price, faster service, and you can get on with your shopping too so has a lot going for it. Criticisms - it is quite small in terms of floor space so does not compare to the large floor space shops of other firms, but I feel it is a trade off we are prepared to take with so many other advantages

      A great short break to take when it is a long time till spring - Warm Oasis pool and Quality Buffet

      Just completed our third annual stay at Butlins Skegness in the February Half term. It started 3 years ago when we where looking for something to look forwards to, to get us over the winter - Butlins in Skeggy seemed to have all of the answers. This year we went for a silver room and premium dining - that is a comfortable 2 bedroom (sleeps 4) 1 bathroom suite of rooms in a dual storey terrace of rooms/ suites - our rooms where clean and comfortable and included a TV with freeview in both bedroom, a reasonable shower and tea and coffee / kettle tray. It was a bit like a Travel lodge / HI Express room with the added advantage that they don't expect the kids to share your room with you, or a pull down sofa as a bed. All 3 of us where very comfortable for our 3 night / 4 day stay. From the moment you arrive, we arrived on the Friday afternoon, to the moment you leave, we left on the Monday lunchtime, there are things going on, places to go, eat, play, and shows to see as well as the pool / water slides - this really impresses as most holidays restrict your usage of things by arrival times and check out times and scheduling, not at Butlins! We booked the premium dining - fantastic - all you can eat breakfast and dinner buffets (we skipped lunch) with good opening hours to suit all needs. Place was always clean, well stocked and good service, regardless of how busy they where. The food choices certainly seemed to cover most tastes, from small continental breakfast to large British Fry-up and everything in between (porridge, kippers, meat and cheese...etc.) and dinner included a traditional roast + veg every night, kids menu stuff (nuggets etc.) Indian / Chinese, Pies, not to mention sweets, fruit etc - ALSO with fruit juices, tea/ coffee, squash etc, all included too - no extra charges for anything and no one harrassing you to try to upsell and get you to buy something or anything. There is a bar and wine list in the restaurant at reasonable prices if you wanted it but no pressure.
      The entertainment was first class with different shows every night - we paid for the sky bar passes which give you guaranteed seating and a private bar, but the jury is still out on whether that was worth it this year as the staffing was very poor for some reason - but even this we enjoyed to get away from the crowds. Finally, the indoor oasis type pools wher ealsways great fun, never too busy and clean. A brilliant holiday in the depths of winter at a decent price and as it was only a long weekend it saves your holiday days off from work for the summer.
