    I do love Christmas but we got emails yesterday about our sneaky Santa and Christmas lunch I do not like the lunch but feel obliged to go I am so anti social with certain works staff Its not them it is me They all want more, only value new stuff, better this and that and would scoff at my money saving ways which I love They cant all be wrong can they?

    My mantra will need to be "its only a few hours"

    Catch up at lunch time and enjoy your day

    I am sorry if I seem, at least at times, to be praising myself, looking after myself and criticising other people's buying choices. I don't mean anything by it, however I think that some (a minority) of my posts may be read that way. I do care about you though, even if not expressly stated every time and clearly have thought about it as I have been thinking about this and now decided to post what I've been thinking - my aim is to get us all shopping even better.

    A strive for perfection - that I know I never achieve.

    Regards to all!

    Good morning all...

    I still have the leftovers of yesterdays migraine....I initially thought it was a one off but it seems that this morning OH has woken up with what he calls "the headache from hell"

    ...and now I see poor HG may have one too.....I wonder if there is something going around....

    Who else went to the cinema screening last night and was treated to minstrels and a bottle of water by their seat....nice touch from cineworld and AMEX

    I remember we went to the preview of "a united Kingdom " last year and had to sit through the film awards bit beforehand too...I'm sure it was the same presenter and she used possibly almost the exact opening sequence to describe last night film as last year.

    Still doing well with frugal O ....last night tea was cheeses and ham toasties as we were going out and popcorn in the cinema that I got from T sometime previously.

    Today may well be a NSD too as tonight I have found some kind of ready meal for 2 in the freezer so plan to bulk that out with a couple of roast potatoes and some veg that needs using up.

    Once I have a little more room in the freezer I could go and get free pizza with the vouchers for sometime later in the month.....it says on the voucher that its to a max of£3 per pizza...can anyone confirm if the true price is entered or the till automatically takes off £3 creating an overage if you find the pizza's at half price?

    Have a lovely day all....a bit of a gentle one here again I think.

    I felt just like this in the office I worked in and often a snide remark would be thrown my way about not spending and the like. When I actually got to speak to one privately she said they were all secretly envious and didn't follow our mantra through laziness or fear of ridicule although I always did feel like a square peg if you know what I mean xxxx

    Its hard being slightly different as you have said before but if we were all the same it would be very boring I doubt anyone thinks you were criticising merely pointing out there are money savings to be made but it wasn't for muggles there would be no worthwhile wombles


    Many of have said we made shopping mistakes and were jokingly handing back our badges I would miss the thrill of the chase for a bargain now and wish I had found you all sooner

    Once you get on to a 15 film nowadays it's usually got a little too many expletives and an 18 just seems to be as much blood guts and gore that they can get away with....I'm sure it's a sign of the times rather than me "becoming a prude" but I think films were a lot gentler 20 years ago.
