I woke up in the wee hours to get some pain killers, I think I've got another ear infection, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I thought I'd catch up with all your posts I hope you are all well and happy.
I've still not heard anything about my mothers funeral, don't know if its taken place, no one has contacted me to let me know, the last I heard from my sister was she was expecting to move house soon, so I think that may be the reason + the newborn twins. She died on the 16th of March, could she possibly still be in the queue, she died in London?

Hi Charlie792, welcome. If you look at the first page of this thread, there is lots of scrummy recipes that people have submitted which should give you some inspiration. Keep a hold of all receipts to get an idea of how much you currently spend and then start trying to cut back a little each month. Also do a stock check of your cupboards & freezer - you'll probably be surprised how many meals you could actually make just from there. (Hark at me the expert who very rarely achieves her own target, lol!)

just had a bit of a conversation with a lady from tesco.
I say a bit of a conversation because she hung up on me.
just getting into work and my mobile rings and it's tesco. bit odd as I would have expected them to email me and i don't really like being called - may remove my number.
discussed my order (a couple of the bags of pasta had split - but with 44 of them that's not a problem for me - and one of the loves of bread had ripped and gone half stale before i noticed and one loaf was missing)
ended up with a refund for £5.50 for one missing loaf of bread and a missing voutcher off my order.
then went on to discuss the pork.
nice lady from tesco: yes, but that's how we do it. it was price matched against your origional order and it's not more expensive
me: yes but what you're doing is you're turning round and saying we'll send you one half the size that's more expensive and we say it's not more expensive than the one you ordered. half the size for not half the price.
now, fine if i'd been shouting or effing off, but when YOU'VE called someone at your conveniance, not theirs, hanging up?
she could have said at any point - sorry it was a problem, but that's the policey, click no subs next time.
