    Firstly - Condolences to MrsM. You know where we are if you need us.

    Had a NSD yesterday and probably will today too. Supposed to be out with a customer tonight but really don't fancy it so may skive off and have some nice HM tea instead.
    Just can't face another fancy faffy restuarant dinner - you can have too many you know!
    May just go home and have jacket spud with beans and cheese or a quorn fillet and wedges - something plain and simple. Could do with doing the ironing for holidays too.


    Not raining here today yet so hopefully I'll have a nice dry dog walking session later.
    Take care xx

    cooking choccie (39p), :wave:

    Hi OrkneyStar - can't believe you gave in to temptation, I would never do that....:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: (much...:rotfl: )

    Just to let you know, Tesco cooking choc is the same as their value chocolate on the sweet aisle, and it is only about 24p there (can't remember exactly, sorry) but worth checking it out (unless you're like me, then it's cheaper to stay away, and less fattening...:D:rotfl: )

    Yeah nikki mentioned this too. We did not check out the sweetie aisle, largely cos we have some in at the moment and I am trying to resist eating too much choccie (its ok in home baking though lol). I am planning some time in a few weeks to pop along with a list of value stuff folk have mentioned and see what they do stock, as its a small Tesco and absolutely full of locals at the mo! Even paying what we did for the value stuff is soooooo much cheaper than what we have had to pay for Scotbloc and the likes, even Tesco own is cheaper than that so am chuffed to have got the value stuff for 39p :D
    They don't do Tesco own yeast, which was a dissappointment, although the Hovis stuff was 60p- 10p cheaper than I have got it for here before!
    Back to the ever rising bread dough.........x

    Hi, I have never had a home delivery before, but I think I can remember someone saying on here once that their delivery was late and they were given some money back or vouchers, but can't remember for what shop sorry. Worth asking driver though:j

    OMG the Weetabix Brownies is to die for I put it on the cooking rack and a few bits dropped through I was caught picking them up by DH he just said next time put a tray underneath to catch the bits. Can't belive half has gone already:eek:
    Want to in control of my money.
  • I had a nice suprise today! I found a ten pound note in my purse I didn't even know was there! Which was good as last night I was in a bit of a tiz waz about money. (unexpected expense this month as I hit a colleague car and have to pay for that!)

    Just a quick question, maybe this has been answered somewhere but in my lunch I don't have time to read through all the posts, but does anyone know where I can buy borax? I wanted to make some of the homemade washing powder that I saw somewhere on here, but I can't seem to find any borax? well I can online but it seems e.x.p.e.n.s.i.v.e
