Sorry for the following rant....
I am fumming! :mad:
I ordered at Asda on Sunday to come today, so it will be the first shop of February, most of it just to stock up basics/food I buy often that were on offer, such as toilet paper, potatoes, crisps or chips. Well, I had a slot between 4pm and 6pm but at 6:30pm I was still waiting. So I call the customer services, who take my number and said they will call back. At 7pm I received a call saying that they have "just been" and there was no one in! What the...? I was at home! I received no call, there is a concierge in the building who open the door and nobody knocked at the door! I am rubbish at complaining so I kind of started mumbling I was upset but then agreed to have it redelivered tomorrow. That's it. All I got is a "sorry, we will talk to the driver to see what he says". Not even an offer to refund the delivery!!! And they have already charged my account, as the available balance is taking into account this payment!! I feel I have paid £48 for bad service and late food. I hope they do send me tomorrow fresh stuff because I had loads of frozen items there!
I felt like cancelling the order but according to MySupermarket the same items in other sm were £18 more.
I feel so frustrated! I needed some of that stuff for today and tomorrow!!
Can I have a piece of chocolate cake to calm down?
EDIT: btw, welcome to the challenge to the new people! This is my second month and it's brilliant!

Almost caught up with the thread, only 3 pages to go:D
Spent just over a tenner yesterday on formula, 2 tubs of spread and a bottle of water to take to my interview/3 hour assessment:eek: I really need to get some bananas today as DH likes to have one for breakfast and I am debating whether to do my weekly shop today instead of Friday to save going to Mr S twice. I don't need much fresh stuff as my veg and fruit boxes will be delivered on Friday anyway. I will see if I hav the energy after I get my HW done as the place is a tip:eek:
I had a disaster with the bread in my BM on Monday. The bread just did not rise and was a heavy lump at the bottom of the pan:( I had used the same flour and yeast on Sunday and it was fine for a loaf and pizza bases so I am not sure what was going on there. I made a white oaf straight afterwards and that was fine. I am going to try the 70% wholemeal again this morning.
I am going to make a macaroni cheese and broccoli bake for tea tonight. I will add some chopped ham I have in the freezer to DH half. Tomorrow I am making a recipe of my Mum's. Quorn (should be chicken but I am a veggie) with a ginger and coconut sauce, will serve it with rice.
Also going to try the millies cookie recipe as the half batch of twinks I made Sunday are all gone:o
Have a nice day everyone:)

Did you have to get 4kg ? Or did they come in smaller packs ? I always laugh when I hear someone say 'I bought all this now what do I do with it ?'- my answer is often 'think of that before you buy them'!!!
Not meaning to be cheeky
How about tart tatin ? That might freeze too ?
Or store them somewhere cool and dark ?
Shame it is not halloween or you could be 'dooking for apples' lol.
Finally is there a friend who might like to swap some apples for something else ?
