    Raspberries, blueberries and (soon) stewed apples in freezer, plus a tub of BJ from the fishnchip glitch months back and a Jam RolyPoly so am probably ok for puds till Halloween...

    32 sachets porage plus a kilo of oats in a sealed storage box. So that's breakfasts till 2017...

    If you haven't got yours yet in T, one Optiwell, one can of cider (silver), 6 x 10p sweets for 50p, one banana and another 10p item will get you your shop for around the cost of the Opti and Cider after BG kicks in - which you will get back from CoS.

    I got a shop to £3.88 as I was in a rush before 4pm close - free sweets ready for Halloween (if they last that long!)

    Just had a visit from exOH & his son....
    I knew he would call in today as he had texted me in the week asking for a cheap hotel in London for him & son for school holiday....
    His way of asking in a roundabout way to stay with Mum & Dad...
    So I had rung Mum & she said 'of course' texted him back with this...
    No reply so I predicted he would turn up...
    As the last time he called in was on his Birthday as I always give him a present...
    The next time he call by will be his son's Birthday in December

    You're more generous than I would be, Snap.

    Mind you, my ex owes me £4k, so he's mostly invisible...

    I am searching for a holiday, somewhere easily accessible, warm and very cheap!
