Sorry just read the notes after posting
£180 for me please
Am looking at £300 until the end of the month. Am looking foward to getting on board again.
haha mine does that too!:rotfl: the kids are so embarrassed by it lol
Why is it that when I shop with the kids it's OK but when he comes along too it's chaos? Everyone bickering and moaning at each other & DH getting stressed out?
Went to Mr A on Friday evening and picked up a large bag of bananas reduced to 10p. They were practically crawling their way out of their skins but it would have been rude not to get them!
Saturday was spent baking 3 banana cakes and pumpkin soup from the jack o' lantern!
We still have soup left so will have that later.
Off out to a firework display tonight.
DH cooked tea last night & I'm pleased to report that he only used 1/2 the packet of chicken bones so we can have casserole tomorrow night with the other 1/2.
Got a packet of king prawns for 20p so expect I'll do them as a curry or something on Weds.
Quite unpleasant looking at my total as I'm now more than 1/2 way through my budget and have a fair amount to go (19 days left). The freezer is full, my baking cupboard is full, I've lots of veg & I need to remember to save enough money to pay the milkman.
Told DH that I want to avoid shopping for a while as I need to pull my finger out & use up the bread flour and freezer stocks.
Anyhoo, off to put the BM on now.
BTW, MrsMC, I missed the part about you going into hospital, I do hope you're OK & it's a routine thing. Take care all, Kaz.
Have just had hubby take me to "ratio" supermarket -(left him in the cafe having a coffee -that turned out to come with a gyros teller-yeh right :rolleyes: ) so the pasta bake I WAS doing for tonight has moved to tomorrow -I have some fresh baked bread so I will have a sandwich -saladcream mmmm:o
I got him to take me there as they do good prices on bulk veggies I don't need them yet but it will store so hubby has taken them down into the basement:D
Whilst I was in there I was looking at their fresh meat and I can buy what looks like 1/4 pig -just bagged up sat there in the fridge -why can't uk supermarkets do that? So Im going to look into that next month..
- 10 kilo nets of potaotoes -€1.99 x 2
- 5 kilo nets of onions -€1.49 x 2
- 10 kilo cabbage €2.79 -coleslaw nomnomnom
- 3 kilo carrots €1.10
- 2 kilo leeks €1.10
right I had better go and update my total and get my sandwich mmmmm
Oh Kaz.... Its an ongoing thing....The pressure in my spine and around my brain is too high and it seems I have a malformed brain :rotfl: it goes to far down into the back of my skull/neck -So its just lumbar punctures etc again -they are trying to decide if the fluid is "sucking" and pulling my brain or if my brain is that shape and causing the fluid problem Either way It gives me cracking headaches and all sorts of problems -they are threatening a shunt :eek: -sorry for the "too much information" at dinner time folks :rotfl:
right i will get off -have a great evening all
I always go shopping alone as mine just moans and groans and tries to buy all sorts of things we don't need.
I went to Morrisons today on my way home for a topup. St Ivel milk 2l is £1.06. Only got milk and salad stuff. Spent £5.34. Hoping to be a very very cheap week this week. While I was away dd cooked using the quorn I had bought as she loves cooking pasta so that worked well. I think they lived on pasta and potatoes and the readymade chilled meals I had left for them!
I continue to surprise myself with portion sizes - The usual black bean chicken with noodles we had would only have served us both has left me with lunch tomorrow Joy!
And the really good news is that from the looks of it, we don't have to do a big food shop this week; just got to get a few bits and pieces in. *happydances* Now, to update my signature
I actually prefer going shopping with him as he pushes the trolley and I can just get on with looking at the list and putting stuff in the trolley! I'm not great with supermarkets and have been known to nearly resort to trolley rage! I cannot stand people who wander along in a daze and then stop in the middle of the aisle, turn their trolley sideways so nobody can get past and then gaze dreamily at the pasta sauce!! I'm more of a military precision shopping type of person which is why I avoid Mr Ts...they move stuff around too much!! So, you see, I'm better when chaperoned!!
Well we have to pop in for milk and bread tomorrow and that's it. He's already told me that we're going after work and we're buying milk and bread and then coming out again.
Is it sad that I just got quite excited when I found out he isn't playing football for two weeks this month which means that we'll save £5...
oh dear...I think I need to get a life
