Good night!

Things are looking up....husband is more or less back to normal, and we both had a good night - slept fairly well and neither of us got out of bed during the night.  

This week I'm going to be using up lots of things out of the freezer - meals previously made and frozen, homegrown veggies and fruit.  I'm hoping to make room for Christmas leftovers for a start - we've got a large gammon and a beef joint, large ones bought purposely when they were on offer to give us lots of meals.  I'm also hoping to stock up on plenty of veg, as it's generally reduced to around 29p at this time of year.  Then after Christmas, the supermarkets usually reduce their massive overstocks of fresh food to silly, a couple of years ago I bought 6 large pots of double cream reduced to 5p, I froze it all and then made butter with it.  So I need the room in the freezer to take advantage of bargain reductions.

Thank you for comments once again, and welcome to a couple of new readers.

And a message for TA - you DO help me, by being such a lovely and supportive friend and I love you for it x


  1. I'm trying to live off homegrown or home preserved products at the moment. I overdid my stores this last year, and probably have enough for two years.

  2. Glad to see that you are both on the way up. Tesco have their 29p veg packs out and Lidl will have theirs from Thursday. We are eating mainly vegetable meals this week and lighter ones too.

  3. So pleased to read that things are looking up for you both. Have a lovely week. :-)

  4. Pleased you had some sleep makes so much difference.
    It's a beautiful day here. I brought 6 lovely Christmas books 50p each in the charity shop for my daughter,

  5. A good nights sleep is worth everything, it just makes you feel so much better, lets hope it keeps up.

  6. Thank you for the message my sweet Sue!

    I am pleased to hear that you are both feeling better, I hope it continues. XOXO

  7. It's SOOOO good to get a full nights sleep! Hope it continues. I wish they would reduce foodstuffs here, not a chance I'm afraid.
