    I have downloaded the Uber eats app from the MSE email and ordered an indian £15 free. I’ve ordered a couple of meals & Bombay potatoes so will be several meals worth & will freeze the leftovers. Only delivery to pay £2.50 🤗 Will save the stew for tomorrow!

    Food was lovely, best part it only cost £2.50 and the leftovers are now in the freezer. I would definitely recommend using the app with this deal if they deliver in your area (the MSE weekly email gives details how to check). My area also includes a few convenience stores so you can get £15 of basic groceries for the price of delivery (some of mine £1.49 some £2.49, price varies depending how far you live from the store) Offer ends 25 July. 

    Usual routine today, walked the dog, worked from home 9-3. One load of washing dried outside. 

    Plans for the weekend 
    Hoover dog carpet & stairs
    Cut grass 
    Mop kitchen floor
    Pour boiling water on patio weeds 
    Wash Bathroom towels 
    Wash dog towels

    Well done on the Uber [email protected] offer the boys did this when they visited me in the garden. I hope you are having a good weekend. It is lovely here cool but not too cold or too hot.

    Hey SyA
    Erm, does that help with shedding? What a well behaved dog you have!  :D 

    Seriously though, I am going to look into that Uber thing, thanks for that....  :)

    I wish it was that easy 😆
    She does love the hoover and lays out on the carpet in front of it and falls asleep! I think it’s the repetitive backward & forward motion & the sound 😴 

    It’s sunny & bright outside. The forecast is dry but clouding over later. I’m just putting the towels on to wash. Then I will do the dog towels separately later in a big net wash bag with a dog hair dissolver. 

    Am making some cheese & bacon turnovers with a pack of puff pastry £1.00, savers bacon £1.15 & some grated cheese about 50p total £2.65 for 6 = 45p each approx. Will have one for breakfast & freeze the rest once cooled 

    Also forgot to add, my prime morresons order came with free delivery & they had put 2 of each pack of chocolate in when I only ordered & paid for 1 of each! Not very healthy 😆 but £3 worth free. I now have 6 multi packs of chocolate I will try not to eat it all at once 😉

    I want a curry now! Hoping the curry house up the road opens soon so I can try them. 

    Think we will all be coming round for afternoon tea SYA.

    Bonus with the shopping, free chocolate tastes even better than normal 😁

    It was free gammon last week when I declined a substitute and they put it in anyway 🤗

    My to-do List has grown 😆 but I am slowly working my way down it. 
    Make bacon turnovers✅
    Wash towels ✅
    Cut open face cream ✅
    Bleach clean bathroom ✅
    Descale shower glass✅
    Check toilet Cistern 
    Hoover dog carpet 
    Hoover stairs
    Wipe down stairs 
    Cut grass 
    Mop floor kitchen &
    Bathroom 
    Pour boiling water on patio 
    Weed forecourt 
    Clean kitchen windowsill ✅

    I’ve cut open the face cream tube to get the last bit out and there is enough for several days. 

    There is a problem with the toilet flush, it doesn’t seem to be sealing when flushed and water is running into the toilet. I will take the lid off & follow instructions from DF later. I can send him pictures and he can tell me how to fix it if needed !

    Hello SyA
    Wow, you are busy! I hope you get that toilet sorted, mine does that sometimes so I take the cistern lid off, and, I think the technical term is 'jiggle it' until it stops flushing. It has worked for now, but, might only be a temporary fix.... Hope that helps in the meantime...  :)
