Well I clicked on your link this morning and my insta has shown me about 3 ads for spices which I already possess so I would say somethings working.

Seems nit picky but the details matter!

Zip lock bag not too bothered, but tags missing yes.

Can anyone recommend business accounts? Am I better going though the pleo/Monzo/Starling route or bricks and mortar? Leaning towards Monzo as it has xero integration but wanna get this right and do it once.

Monzo / Starling are good. Metro is a good bricks and mortar option if your business deals with any level of cash

Smells like feet.

I use Starling which also has a xero integration, never had any issues and much prefer their interface to Monzo

What are the fuk faves for bed linen? It's been ages since I bought any. Looking for good bang for buck, don't want to spend too much.

Want to put some coat hooks on a door, the door is hollow wood and it's only a couple of mm thick, tried using these but they were shit. Any other suggestions?
