Thanks for the lovely supportive comments on yesterday's post. I'm feeling much better today! I just had a chill day yesterday. I leisurely cleaned my kitchen, cleared some paperwork and let my OH take the dog out for a long walk while I had a lie down listening to an audible book. Batteries are well and truly charged.
I was up early this morning and did my Sainsbury's shop by 9am. I scored a few bargains! The ice cream (for The Teenogre) and frozen GF pies were hugely reduced. Supermarkets always clear out frozen stuff in the run up to Christmas. Keep your eyes peeled for good bargains!
I also got lucky with some meat. The beef joint was LESS than half price!!! I've been neglecting the butcher's counter. I must remember to keep checking it for bargains in the future. It's been in the slow cooker all day 😋
The chicken drumsticks made a big pot of stock which became chicken and rice soup, aka lunch for 7 days. My freezer is now pretty full!
I had a parcel delivered this week and was too tired to open it until yesterday. I recently found a website that sells non plastic alternatives. Have a look HERE. I'm trying out these pot scourers made of jute and cotton. They can be chucked in the washing machine when they get grubby and then can be reused.
Did you know that most teabags aren't biodegradable? Many have plastic in them. I'm trying a reusable teabag made of organic calico. It's working out so far. I'm not sure how long they last but so far I've saved 9 plastic ridden teabags going to landfill.
I've been finishing off some wee jobs in my bedroom today and I'm ready now for the carpet fitters to come this week. My Lovely Mum has made me a fabulous quilt that's off to be quilted tomorrow. It's all coming together!
Hope everyone is well and looking ahead to the festive season. TV adverts are starting to talk about the C word so I guess I'd better get thinking about it too!! 🎄
