  • Went to Tesco this evening to get some basic groceries, some jeans for my 'other half' and to try and find some Johnson's Holiday Sun! :j Yeah! I found some, they had 4 bottles. This stuff has been impossible to find since it's launch a few months ago. Everywhere constantly sold out before I got to it. They were selling it on Ebay at TWICE :eek: the usual cost, so I didn't go down that route and decided to wait until I found some in a regular retailer. It cost me £4.65 a bottle in Tesco's and I bought 2 :D:D:D:D :T

    Got my 'other half' 2 pairs of Jeans which were £12.00 each, and bought him a paperback book which cost £6.99 for Father's Day tomorrow.

    Also got some buy-one, get-one free's on Pasta Sauce and Fresh Pasta, bought some Mr Kiplings Almond Slice's, a large Tesco Egg Custard, small bunch of Pink Carnations which reportedly last 14 days and are now decorating my dining table - very nice! and 2 pretty sandwich trays with kittens/cats on etc..... a sandwich and a bag of crisps which I am gonna have using my new sandwich tray in a short while whilst watching telly. Shouldn't waste money on a 'bought' sandwich I know :eek: but didn't have time to get the breadmaker on today, just been so busy, busy, busy! and I have had no dinner and I am hungry!

    I only went to buy jeans ROFLMAO! :rotfl: :rotfl:

    The bill came to over £53 but I had some vouchers in my poscket. £9.50 clubcard vouchers earnt over last quarter and £4 money off clothes voucher if you spent over £20 on clothes which I did.

    So bill came to £40 odd....not bad....pleased. :T :T :T

    That's dinner sorted for the next few day's, pasta, pasta and more pasta LOL :T :eek: :T
