    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

They do the meat lorries at markets, and supply shops I guess, and their name is 'alphabetical' if you get my drift, easy as A B C to guess. Quandry solved, and guys job intact

    Odd how a word here or there can slot into place

    Evening all!

    Just spotted a post on Extreme couponing facebook page that Morrisons are selling off their bakeware cheap. Big spoons and ladles for 30p, roasting tins for 25p etc. The store was Tynemouth, so not sure if national but maybe making space for Christmas stock?

    All good on the Frugal October side of things, just not as much de-cluttering as I'd have liked yet. Next week I'll be focusing more on eating out of the freezer or I'll never have room for festive goodies!

    Iceland offer of the week is 50p for a block of Willow spread, which I can only assume is similar to Stork?

    I've seen quite a few pictures of fancy advent calendars recently and it reminded me of the McDonalds advent calendar from last year, where everyone was using that app to win Amazon vouchers. I didn't get any, but maybe this will be my year
    Frugal October: £30.89 / £80, 13 / 31 days.

    Evening paw sniffers

    I've only received £14 in Nectar points so lots to go yet

    Don't think I've received all the ones from Saturday yet and then I've got Sunday and the ones I put on at the Sains Local on Monday.

    So I think it will be a few days yet
