Well I said I wouldn't bore you with details of my shopping but I'm excited! I found that I had accumulated over £40 worth of Nectar points with my online deliveries and have now worked out how to spend them on my next food order. The result is that I have received £77.14 worth of shopping and only paid £35.89 which helps the food budget enormously. I even let G have 2 bottles of beer and some chocolate 😂 so he's a happy bunny! Really pleased about that....
More good news is that there was NO PARTY this weekend 👍 Someone arrived around 7pm on Friday evening to pick Young Neighbour up and off they went until I was woken by the door slamming at 3.35am. She obviously went to bother someone else instead of us.......
When we had the heavy snow a couple of weeks ago, Young Neighbour made a lovely little snowman on the front lawn together with her baby daughter and used sprouts for eyes and buttons, and a carrot nose. A few days later the snowman melted and the veg has been lying on the lawn rotting away nicely 😏😒 As the rubbish was being collected yesterday, I picked them up (they really were rotting) and put them in the bin for collection. I would rather she moaned at me than attract rats.
Would you have picked them up?
Thank you everyone, once again, for your comments on my last post. I do appreciate it.
This morning we fancied an M & S meal deal as we haven't had one for months and seem to be eating the same meals in the same pattern each week 👀 I drove and G went in on his own to do a recce, then I went in and did the shopping. It was a bit too busy for comfort so I hurried up (no browsing) We now have butternut squash en croute, dauphinoise potatoes and an apple crumble for pudding. I picked up a nice bottle of French Merlot too which was on offer for £5 instead of £7 and as I had a £2 voucher it actually cost just £3. I'm looking forward to an easy cook meal tonight!
I don't know about you but I seem to ache all over lately and this morning I reached for the squeegee to clean the shower screen after my shower and pulled a muscle in my back. Ouch! I think I have been so inactive for so long that it's telling on me so, when we returned from M & S, we went for a walk around the estate. Boy, the homes are shooting up! The site looks as though it will be complete by the end of this year, failing any more catastrophies. I'm glad we bought when we did though because the homes at the rear of the estate are right next to some big industrial units and there are lots of cul-de-sacs which will be used by the kids to play ball games in, I'm sure.
The weather is quite mild today so G is now in the garden sorting out the freshly delivered strawberry plants and pruning the rose tubs. AND the windows are OPEN!
What's the weather like where you are?
Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x
