    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

    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??

    I managed to get OH to S, he put 2 x £10 in and said it was full. I told him to get out of the car and put another £10 in, and watched him. The kick went at £5+, he was ready to give up until I barked at him to continue and fill it up... it easily got to £10.

    The into the shop, one lot of clothing returned, and a few new clothes buy, the lowest till split was 200 points. I think I am £200 up in points. I am keeping some clothes, but the rest are terrible... maybe I should have take more time choosing rather than just checking that it was over a £10!

    lol.
