dd is after a telescope and I've found a 1/2 price one on Argos but t's collection only. We live near Guildford and the only store that I can find it at is Newbury Retail Park but it has to be picked up tomorrow or I lose the reservation.

I have to fly to Ireland tomorrow for 2 days so wouldn't be able to get there until saturday

Hoing there's a kind mumsnetter who would be willing to buy it for me and I would collect at the weekend?

I am willing to pay for your fuel to get there!

Really big pleading bump. dd really wants this and its down to £40 from £100 (couldn't afford to pay full price)

Final desperate bump before I have to go to bed (on a 6am flight tomorrow)

This is when you know you know that you no longer "belong" when no-one even comments on your thread

Oh, sorry galaxy, I'm nowhere near Newbury but if I was I would get it for you. Just didn't want your post to go unnoticed

Thanks Sunshine! Feel better that someone answered anyway ! Must go to bed now.

Galaxy - I may have to go into Newbury tomorrow. If I'm going to go I'll give you a shout.

Thank you bluesky for your kind offer to get this for me and for making a fresh reservation. Have emailed you about collecting Sunday.

You're a star!

Just wanted to say thanks once again for your help with this and lovely to meet you. I apologise for my "shy retiring" daughter being so forthright! She enjoyed the biscuits thanks!

Hiya - permanent name change? dd had her afternoon at SP's Friday and we spent 2 hours with Mr H. She loved it (we thought it was pretty cool too)!!
