    Many of the clothes in S are truly shocking in quality and poor value for money - I was going around tutting.

    There was one top there though, it came in black or khaki in some so-soft fabric, but it was a cap sleeve. I said to DD if they'd only done it long-sleeve or even three-quarter, they'd have probably sold out on day one. And if done in a range of colour choices, I'd have had that in every colour going for workwear.

    If there was a code for the mystery twines I might be tempted, we are short on white. Guess I will have to see if it glitches next week, OH didnt actually tell me we were low, he prefers red anyway, but you can't drink red with chicken

    I had bought two of the blanket cape thingamabobs.... OH said I look like I am wearing a blanket... somethings are just not for me!

    They have this new loyalty card/membership scheme. You pay £1 and get a card that gives back a percentage of your spend on co-op branded goods to you and a smaller one to the community.

    They can't add missed receipts in store so you have to do it online

    Has done me quite well so far this week

    But I saw this coat which looks like nothing on the website but its really heavy and thick and lined with proper buttons - probably wont be around long enough to go half price or even to go into the 25% sale
    I cant really justify it having just bought a lovely red jacket in the Heart Foundation for £8

    Really excited to try the Exotic mushrooms

    There was so much more too.....so I've just had a couple of hours prepping stuff for the freezer. I've also just made a huge pan of tomato sauce with fresh basil. Carrot and coriander soup and stewed some plums for a crumble.

    I think I have a years supply of sprouts. I don't like more than 3 on my plate. I've counted them all

    Last couple of days I felt like i've been punched in the jaw, couldn't fathom what it was as it affecting the lower right canine. Turns out my wisdom tooth is coming through and looks like this tooth is being squeezed inwards. Wisdom teeth have caused me nothing but trouble - small mouth you see

    Raining here so been having a lazy weekend.

    This might really test my resolve this afternoon..

    Twine have all the mysteries in stock....reds,whites rose,fizz and champagne.

    I'm off to play with the reduced meat counter at my local T and when I return if they are still in stock I may have to fall off my frock!

    Go on, MHOC, treat yourself...

    I had to smile at an ivory jumper (or cardigan, can't remember which) that had part of its sleeves knitted in a navy blue. Said to DD that was the kind of thing we used to end up with in the late 50s/early 60s, if there wasn't enough wool to knit the whole thing in one colour, random oddments would be used to start the sleeves off... Or if you had a growth spurt, extra bits would be used to extend it at the hem and cuffs.

    If you were really unlucky, the whole item would be knitted in a mosaic of leftovers ...

    Was not going to take part in the Nectar thing but couldnt resist. So popped over ( 5 miles ) to my local and spent £47.00 fuel and £10.51 on shopping for mum. Got £22.50 points and Mums shopping and a full tank petrol. Does double up cover food aswell?

    Many thanks to whoever brought it across. The power of the Elite.

    Last query for Bubbs or Zippy. Packs pepsi on £3.50 each or 2 for £5,00 again at W again but seem to think last time they came out really cheap. Cant remember how much though??
