    Good morning I woke up this morning and I was trying g to decide what the noise was and I realised it was rain I didn't bother getting up to look.
    This week's job is painting the hall stairs and landing the trouble is once you do one room it makes everywhere else look sad. We started in Dd room then dh painted the bathroom so now it's my turn. I'm only doing the glossing but all those rungs and the bannister and we have picture rails too
    It will be worth it when it's done we've chosen duck egg blue
    My list of things to be grateful for so far this month are

    M&S vests
    AJ and Amazon I got a cot that was mispiriced @£74 now £126.95
    Morrie's Muller's and granola for £4
    Realising how easy it is to be a frocker I have stopped myself so many times from nipping into a supermarket for example I was going to get mushrooms on Saturday for Sunday's breakfast then I remembered I was a frocker so we had bacon, eggs, beans and toast did we miss the mushrooms .......of course we didn't so my total remains still quite low and I am amazed at how easy it has been.


    Mhoc........buy the coat
    SPC9# 517 target £365. £692 SPC10 #. Target £365

    Morning all, did a few £10 shops and filled mine n dd cars in £10 transactions hopefully should be the months fuel for both. So will save the fuel money I normally put in. Did gets some clothes but only returning 1 thing that I don't like when on. Don't usually get dh into any glitchy shopping but went to 1 store n he was like lets go to our local. So called n did a few more shops. Don't shop in S as a rule as too blooming expensive.
    Anyway checked balance n have £138 this morning on nectar, not bad when it was £22. Will wait for double up n see what's included.

    Buying petrol was a no brainer. I haven't spent any extra just brought my spending forward.
    I was hoping we would have had the Felix at 3 for £10 and I would have had a few more shops

    Boots again today

    I may have to hand in my Elite badge .

    I bought an item for cashback ... lost the receipt .

    Bought fish fingers on PYO in W ... but hadn't confirmed the selection and was too embarrassed to return them .

    Also found when I renewed my Lloyds account I had not set up the DD so have not been getting the interest for 4 months .

    I must pay closer attention!

    Morning all, hope everyone is well.

    Nectar points updated overnight & now seem correct.
    It was funny because I shopped at one store first & points gradually went up. Then at next store they started from where they were originally so total ended up being short. Sat night the app updated but just the second store ??? So still short. Finally Sun night they were all put on. Very pleased & great fun xx

    For using up the limes, the marmalade suggestion made me think of River Cottage compost heap jelly. For some reason my iPad won't let me copy the link but it's easy to find if you google it, it's a Pam Corbin recipe and so easy even I can make it.
