    There is a coupon for 30p off pecan twists in the tesco mag. These are often reduced to 25p in my stores so I hope to get lucky.

    Thinking ahead perhaps next Saturday with the royal wedding maybe a good night for yellow labels.

    Just dashed out to A as I forgot to take the bubbs beef out last night. Picked up a 13 one for 7.50 after second reductions

    Just halved it. Put half in the oven, half in the freezer and even found a bit of squirrel for Oz


    Apologies to the non carnivores.

    Picked up a couple of interesting wombles. Tick tock

    Thanks to crabman for the post.


    Hmmm, credit lasts 6 months without any chargeable event, so just need to use minimum of one every 6 months, 3p per minute on calls, 2p a text. Minimum top up 10.

    What do we think of these?

    Bought this blue thing in Home Bargains for 1.49 when we didn't have a sink. Now we do have a sink and I'm unsure why I need it

    Doesn't the draining board just drain?

    It's just another thing to dry

    Excuse my Christmas mug.....we were nearly drinking out of soup bowls at one point
