Hey Ho, not to worry, I have lots to do indoors. I did not lift a finger yesterday regarding houseworky things.
I did plan on making a pasty for dinner but did a Tesco run at 3:20 and picked up loadsa bargainicious stuff.
Whole roasted large chickens for £3, they may have gone down a bit more but I would not lose them. 1 for dinner, 1 for the freezer and 1 for my lovely friends A and K.
There were packs of dry cured ham down to 10%, I 'fess up to snaffling 6 decent sized packs. This freezes well and does not thaw out wet. Again I took some to A and K, some went with the chicken for dinner and the rest in the freezer. Chicken and ham pie will be on the menu next weekend, Fran loves it.
Salad pots with lots of Edamame beans in down to 10p, some for dinner last night and some to share.
Cambazola blue brie was 29p a 225 g wedge, I freeze this and grate or chop from frozen into hot pasta, instant yummylicious sauce.
Some items were hardly reduced at all, cherries were down from £3 to £2:20, in Home Bargains they are 89 p a punnet, and very nice too.
Sandwiches and rolls were marked down by 1/3rd but I never buy those and all those fancy packs of chopped up fruit were also only down by 1/3rd.
I was more than happy with my haul and so glad to be able to share the bounty.
My knitting has come on apace, mainly because I have been changing the sewing area around and the cabinet is piled high.
One pair finished.
Another started, this brown is a bugger to see in artificial light, even with a spot lamp on it was not good. My aim this week is to get my self out and buy a craft light.
This pink Alpaca Tweed cardigan has been languishing around for many weeks, just needed the rib bands and then sewing up. I will need to get buttons for it tomorrow.
I liked the cabled sleeves while I was knitting it, not so keen on them now though.
The sewing room has got a new shelf and some more storage boxes. I have more or less finished stacking them now, I may need to squeeze a small box in to hold elastic.
Much better now, I can see at a glance what I have and how much.
This unit is now for my yarns, I got fed up with rootling around under the sofa and anyway I wanted to use that to hide away my Ch*****as shopping. That Francesca does not miss a thing and I have made a start on stashing gifts away. The bottom row is now empty, those fabric boxes held fabric offcuts and so on. Now I need to find a new home for them.
I think that I have caught you up with my doings and now I am off to have a quick catch up on blog reading. Time for a cuppa before I go back to sorting the sewing cabinet.
