Whoop whoop! I have my car back! It has cost an eye watering £312.62 but it was returned to me at 7pm last night, just in time to save DH from going to work on the bus this morning (it wouldn't have hurt him now, would it ;) Fingers crossed when I say this but it seems OK, no damage to the engine, thankfully.
Yesterday, my lovely Father in Law gave me 2 Sun newspaper vouchers for Morrisons fruit & veg. By spending £10 it gave me £5 off so this lot here cost me just £5.82 I am really pleased with that as I want to ramp up our intake of fruit & veg now that the weather is turning colder. I have some sausages in the freezer so Sunday lunch is sorted....sausages (veggie ones for me) lots of veg and gravy. That will leave plenty of veg for a veggie stew, peppers for omelettes, cauliflower cheese etc and baked apples with custard. Yum!
I tried to give away my spare voucher in the store but nobody wanted it. One gentleman carefully adding up his items with a calculator already had a voucher and other people didn't want to spend even £5 on fruit & veg. Astonishing really when they were filling their trolleys with alcohol, ready meals and expensive nibbles.
I wanted to pop into M & S to look at the reductions and remembered that I had a voucher for the coffee shop. A reviving medium filter coffee cost £2 and I got 3 slices of brown toast, butter and marmalade FREE. Although small slices of bread, I could only eat 2 so I buttered the third, wrapped it in my serviette and popped it into my bag for later. Does anyone else feel guilty slipping perfectly good uneaten food into a bag for later? I hate waste but hope that people don't think I am penniless :)
I hope you are all having a good day and surviving the crowds if you have to shop today.
Thanks ever so for popping in x
