    speaking of grinders, you might want to check your closest Argoses...

    Rachel Allen mini food processor (1L size) is less than half price at 8.99. Very limited stock but some people have reported finding it so it's not totally hopeless.

    There are quite a lot of us 5'11"ers around! Buuuuut... can anyone beat my (and I'm a girl) size 11 feet?!

    Another one who is a size (cough)... firmly in the plus sizes though!

    Oh... and mine's a Jack 'n' coke! ;)
    em i don't anyone can beat the size of my feet ahem cough ahaem size 3 - 31/2.:o

    One morning, as in two days ago, i put my 9 year olds sons shoes on by mistake. I'm not a morning person. my brain was not working(lack of caffiene).Needless to say the shoppies have never let me live that down. Guess what neither has my son, the little so and so is still torturing me now.

    Hello everyone (again)

    I'm all confused at the moment. Hell bent on reading the entire thread but nosey enough to want to keep catching up. I'm on page 60 but have caught up the last 20 or so too.

    I'm having 11 for tea tomorrow (immediate family would you believe:eek:) My mum's going to be 80 on Tuesday so we sisters thought we'd congregate (at mine).

    I just wanted to say really that I'm making your onion tart, your weetabix loaf (tips hat to even more money saving by using weetabix-type Asda things) and something else that I've forgotten now:o so even though they're super frugal recipes, they're still worthy of the treat table.

    I'm enjoying this movement immensly. I think the collective are doing a fabulous thing. Stuff like this will always have its knockers (oo-err missus) be them subliminally or in your face, but I don't think there's many people who plan meals with such attention to nutrition as you are. Weezl, no sicophancy intended but it's very obvious that you have pure intentions so keep up the good work. You're "surrounded" by some super-giving people.

    Ohhhh you tease ! Gimme gimme gimme.... :D Pretty please ?

    Incidentally, Weezl, I think that there may be a number of people in my area doing your planner on the sneak - went shopping today and on almost every item on the list the stocks were right down, with some being sold out altogether :( Wish the beggars would pipe up and own up though, lol.
