find it where you can.
Seldom found in woman,
never found in men.
That must make me a part man then.
I have never been credited with patience, with myself or others.
Animals and children, yes. The infirm and needy, yes.
Shop assistants who have no idea what is in their place of employment, NO.
Drivers who can not park between the lines, NO.
People who listen but do not hear a word said to them, NO.
The list could go on for reams of paper, so I will leave it at that.
At this precise moment it is me who is in the firing line. The SO has a job that has to be done tomorrow and I wanted him to shop with me. There were a few heavy things and I was planning on looking at cameras.
We went off, I completely forgot 3 essential items, totally my fault I had not put them on the list. Did I look at cameras, of course not, not on the list. So it was a case of out of sight, out of mind.
Mind, what mind? Mine was left at home.
I did get everything that was on the list. WIN
I did succumb to the bargain shelf. FAIL.
Not a 100% fail as what I bought is planned for Francesca,s next visit. It will save me both time and money.
I did find a French Press, and some really lovely coffee,both at a good price. WIN. We washed the press and made a pot as soon as we got in and it is very moreish.
I saw some yarn in Wilko,s, 80 % acrylic and 20% wool, DK in some very desirable colours. I resisted. WIN.
I have the quilt top together. WIN
MY maths were so off that I have 6 blocks extra. WIN
They will be the starter for another quilt.
On a tangent, have you noticed how many You Tubers put up videos of their shopping? Do they really need to do a humongous food shop twice weekly (specially the ones who are on diet programs).
Does anyone really need to change their crockery every time new patterns are in the shops?
Who the devil has the time to shop that many times in a week?
Am I just being curmudgeonly?
I must get that camera bought, I have so many things that I want to share. I have the lovely sock set that I won in the Strictly Sock-along run by Ali of Little Drops of Wonderful. There is also some knitting to show, and some fabric.
Dinner tonight is a chicken and root veg roast, from the freezer, all was bought at rock bottom prices, with some green veg it will come out at £1.50 for us both.
On that note I am off to get the oven on and feed the dogs, to all intents they are behaving as though starving, fast.
