Oops, did you notice that I completely missed out the savings bit yesterday. I went to the local Co op for a few things and had a look at the reduced section, as usual. Oh My Word, 3 legs of lamb, half price and then reduced by £3 each 3 of those became mine, pork chops in a Chinese glaze on offer and then reduced to half price I had 2 of those, good sausages £3 for 10 I had 1 of those and will separate them before freezing and packs of 4 x 120 grams Burgers BOGOF. I do not normally buy burgers but picked up 2 packs.
Then I made my way to the Deli counter, the Coop are the only shop that reduce their cheese by 50% and I picked up 2 large blocks of Mature Cheddar, 2 wedges of Shropshire Blue and 2 pieces of Tintern with chives and shallots, I have not bought this before but at half price I am sure that it will taste good.
My freezer is stuffed to the gills and I am a happy saver.
Today's reasons to be grateful,
1. Ben and Bertie
2. The scent of my Geoff Hamilton roses.
3. The company of old friends.
4. The glorious sunshine.
5. BBC Radio 2.
Michael has given the kitchen a quick blitz this morning so all I have to do is cook dinner and wash up, I am very fortunate to have him in my life.
It is, of course, Father's Day. My mother always said that Father's day was every day. Francesca is in Cambridge, with friends, for the day and gave Michael his goody bag last night, a huge bar of Toblerone, a double pack of Oreo's, 2 bags of Haribo sweets and a DVD ParaNorman, he was as happy as a dog with 2 tails.
I am not sure that it will be my cup of tea but we will watch it together next weekend.
We are having beef for dinner and a form of Eton Mess for pudding, Strawberries do not agree with Michael so into the broken meringue I will stir melon, figs, almonds and yoghurt, yummy.
Now I am off to get things started. TTFN Pam
