I've been off line for about 4 weeks. I got the 'all clear' from having a HUGE Ovarian Cyst removed...(great fears that it was Cancer :j ). As soon as I was fit, we took off in our motorhome, not just for some R & R, but to get away from the incesant noise and heat from blowers & dehumidifiers drying out my concrete kitchen floor from a possible 5 year 'quiet' leak from my dishwasher :eek: .( Thank goodness for Insurance) Needless to say, my June challenge went more than somewhat 'pear-shaped'. So here we go again for July. Mrs. M., can you please put me down for £300 again. I've been shopping today, and spent £63, so now got £237 left. Hope I can keep within my set limit.:undecided .
Good luck everbody with your own personal challenge...the more difficult it becomes, the more determind we will be to 'beat it'. Just remember, what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger. :A

Meal plan - what meal plan?
Planned to do roast on Sunday, but Saturday we had a takeaway due to unforeseen circumstances. Sunday we had Saturday's tea, and instead of the roast planned to do the china chilo because finally fresh peas in shops :j:j:j
But I had forgot the lettuce so Monday we had a scratch meal (fish fingers, baked beans, tinned potatoes) and I was feeling a bit fed up with the start of this week's headache. Tuesday the lettuce came with the Sainsbury order so I managed, despite headache, to get china chilo finished, but OH couldn't eat much much due to bad stomach, so instead of freezing a portion he threw it :eek:
Then yesterday's spag bol just didn't happen because I could barely move so Friday's fish & chips day was moved to Wednesday, and tonight we are having spag bol if the mushrooms are still fit or some variant thereof if they are not.
I'm looking at all the yummy recipes and thinking how great they sound, but I am not, repeat NOT, going out and buying ingredients until next month - I have meal plans and stuff to use up and I will do it!
And I still have a headache!

For anyone interested, I have been making fatfree yogurt in a thermos flask (no need for a yogurt maker)for the last month. I reckon it costs me 50p for a litre.

I know what you mean, I go in full of hope and then nothing. Tesco has a good reduction going on on gardening and picnic things, got a thermometer for 18p . Netto today had some good prices, including 19p for 500g bag of penne pasta and 2 litres of milk reduced to 60p, worth a look if there is one near you
