    Morning all

    Have a lovely holiday bubbs.

    I'm off to Barons Court Project later, think I'll get them some toothbrushes in S before I go.

    My shopping is all planned for S today

    All the cashback stuff I wanted is still on there. apart from the tonic water but hey ho

    Just debating whether to get 10 or 20 packets of Bahlsen First Class...... There's always the danger that you just eat more if you buy more

    I need to buy my Christmas cake dried fruit today too....but wombles will cover that. I'll give it a good soaking in alcohol before I make the cake.

    I have a lot of beetroot needs picking but it's smallish. There's no more growing to be had but I have lots of pickling vinegar to use up
    Another job for later.

    Bubbs have a fab holiday....I'll keep my fingers crossed for dry weather

    Morning all! Off to S today

    Do I need to add £10 of petrol, then pay, then repeat? Or can I ask to pay in £10 increments? I'm assuming £10 on the dot is ok and it doesn't need to be £10.01?

    An update on Froctober

    I've only spent 50p

    I've spent a bit in wombles though

    If I could have found the Cadburys retro selection boxes I would have spent a tenner though. I've walked to T nearly every day in my lunch hour but there's never any. The SA said that they fly off the shelves the minute they put them out. No magazines yet either

    £10 on the dot is fine. Just put £10 in at time and pay. You can leave your car in the same place

    No idea if it helps anyone, but I saw a FB post saying the Christmas chocs on offer 4 for £5 in M are actually much smaller than the ones in T which are £1.50 per box, so it's not actually as good a deal as it may seem.

    Just had an invitation to a Fancy dress Halloween Party and my heart has sank.

    I hate Fancy Dress but we will have to go.

    To minimise the pain, Im thinking of just going as Morticia. I've got a long black dress but I'll have to buy the wig

    I've never suited red lipstick either

    Perhaps I'll think of something else

    We will then go in for our food shopping and repeat

    To be honest the staff are so busy they don't even notice....or even care.

    Then I'll do my car tomorrow

    Good morning Elite

    Windy day here so I'm proceeding with caution, must remember to cover my mouth else the wind will take my breath away

    I did have a couple of posts to send replies to but they've vanished and I can't remember who or what they were, oh well, they'll come to me no doubt

    Mr AJ preparing for his first walk of the day, he'll call at Mr A on his way back. He has found the windy corner, £25.42 apgs on Thursday but it was market day and town is always busy. He is building a stash and still donating to local Hedgehog rescue.

    Have a good day everyone, don't over spend those who are in on the budgeting

    Hugs to the Elite poorly. Where is JTS? Special hugs to those low in spirit, you're in my thoughts today xx
