    Good for you, sounds fab.

    I was meaning that you might like to take a peek ;)

    I bought, but not all white, it just doesn't work in my house of male 'oafs' :D

    Started my iron pill medication 2 days ago (have to take them every other day) and boy do I feel nauseous. It's normal apparently but given the fact OH and I wanted to go to the movies this evening ... I might not make it through and fall asleep half way in :rotfl:

    I do however feel a bit more energetic so that's a good sign! :T

    Iron tabs cripple my stomach, so I get Spatone liquid iron sachets now :D

    Yes Spatone are easier on the stomach, but very low dose and would take a long time to bring levels up if seriously low (my ferritin was 7 against an NHS bottom range of 20). Solgar Gentle Iron are 20mg, Spatone also 20g I think.

    As with so many things we have to find what works for us don't we?

    I think with the PA , a lot of us are also iron deficient. It's a minefield isn't it ? :(

    Oh right...I see what you mean now, Sorry. Sadly I don't have any Male oafs any more. :rotfl:

    Butterfly......hope you feel better soon, iron tablets can be tricky to take, side effects can be rather unpleasant.

    Well I have done my weekly shop. The walk in the fresh air blew the cobwebs away. A bit chilly mind, hopefully it should be warmer tomorrow. It came £5.33 :T:T. That is nothing short of miraculous for me.

    Although I don't menu plan as such, I am going to do a proper freezer and fridge inventory. The plan is to have a bit Of a use up month and just buy milk, fruit and veg etc to top up, hopefully freeing up lots of lovely cash.

    I still want to eat well and enjoy good healthy food so I won't eat crap just to save money but I do think it is an area where I can cut back on spends without compromising on quality.

    :rotfl: It won't happen again......it's only because I still had loads in from Christmas and New Year. I am aiming for £100 this month and then probably around the £120 thereafter. Currently I don't have any pets so I should be able to manage.

    Let me know what the Favourite is like......not sure if I can manage next week, it might have to be the week after. You have got some good deals there.

    Yeah that looks good too. Margot Robbie is in it. I watched Wolf of Wall Street last night. I love that film, it's a hoot. She's in that, and she is so funny.
