I'm turning into my mother!

Firstly, a big welcome to Sue H, my new follower :)
 
I realised yesterday that I am turning into my mother!  She used to read everything she laid eyes on, junk mail, free newspapers, packaging etc  She always knew way before I did when the contents of packs of things like washing powder were reduced or chocolate bars got smaller (and usually cost the same as before)  Now I'm at it.  During a bored moment I decided to make myself a cuppa and began to read the sugar packaging.  Oooh, it's a British product .....
 
 

It's grown in East Anglia and travels only 28 miles from farm to factory, a definite plus in my book and the packaging is made from paper and can be recycled. OMG I've been putting them in the normal waste (smack on the hand), that will have to change.  This one will go in the recycle bin....


Cor...there's even a recipe for lemonade on the side....


Yes, I know I ought to get out more but I've certainly learned something new.  And before anyone asks, I haven't been sponsored to comment, I just lead a quiet life! :)

This morning we decided (ok, I decided but dragged OH with me) to the Silver Cinema at the local Odeon to see Our Kind of Traitor with Ewan McGregor and the big Swedish actor who's name I can never remember or pronounce.  It was gripping and well worth the bargainacious price of £3 each including tea and biccies.  There was no extra charge for the premiere seating either so we had lots of room and comfy chairs.  It seemed a pity that only 13 people were in there.  Perhaps the weather was too sunny to sit in the cinema?


 
It's beautifully sunny at the moment and OH is mowing the grass leaving me to relax and surf the 'net.
 
 
Take care wherever you are and thanks everso for popping in x

  2. A lot of sugar beet grown around us and we have discovered the sugar factory nearby! It is a fascinating sight - a giant "refinery" in the middle of fields surrounded by mounds of fresh beets during the harvest season. I have been buying British sugar for some time and feel I am supporting my local fields!
