Library's Closing

Well I don't know how I missed 4 yoghurt's in the fridge about to expire today i wasnt going to bin them so I emptied them into a Tupperware and popped them in the freezer ill use them in smoothies and shakes..strawberry and cranberry, and black cherry..waste not want not..

I was reading our local newspaper online and was saddened to read that the council are planning to close approximately 240 libraries up North due to council cuts, one of them is in a new state of the art college that cost 10 million to build and only been open 2 years..Bloody madness.. for want of a better word, pissed me right off!!

There are a total of seven library's in my area alone that are closing, what about the people that rely on these services, the elderly, parents and children, community groups, the old chap that goes to read his newspaper in piece every day the decent folk who use the computers as the can't afford their own, the people who do actually read and look forward to checking out new books every week, not to mention all the workers who will be out of jobs..I honestly feel left confused by this news, what are things coming too.

Hells teeth

Another story was apparently one million people have decade old food in their freezers! My freezer gets checked every week and drawers wiped down regularly a decade old? Chuffin eck not in this house! my mother says 'you lot are bloody gannets in that house' lol we're not we just like our food.

Its been a while

Hello everyone
well its been a while

- broken internet
- laptop virus
- illness
blimey its been one thing after another here
but im back
ive missed bloggy world

So nothing major really here, still plodding on, scrimping, saving, being frugal and paying off debts
but we are all happy so no problems here
all the illness has finally decided to bugger off- thank chuffing goodness :)

such a lovely weather change to, that really brightens thing up no end

My son was desperate for some new t shirts and he had some money saved from christmas/birthday/easter  and it was burning a hole in his pocket, so i allowed him to spend it on what he wanted too....shock horror he has taken a liking to R*ver I*land, he came home with 1 pair of jeans and 1 t shirt for £50 chuffing pound...thought id taught him better but i allowed him to go and enjoy his spend

yes it was a lovely t shirt but not worth the £16 price tag, since discussing with him the cost of living and the price of fashion i asked him if he'd like to look on ebay with me to see if we could find any R*ver I*land t shirts that took his fancy, i assured him they would be well washed by me and would be like new one laundered and ironed -ok mum was the answer so we looked

we managed to find 4 lovely t shirts all in the style he loved and we got the lot including postage for £12.50
one happy mum and one happy son

a mighty saving from new of £64.00 we saved £51.50
my kind of shopping
(3x RI 1x N*xt)

Whats on the menu plans this week?
Its farmoods cod in batter tonight with peas and new potatoes, and cheese pie for LS

i always make a meal plan for the week so i know exactly what to buy and exactly what im cooking everyday, starting to run out of different meals weekly, dont get me wrong we sometimes have duplicate meals and that fine but i need some fire away with any meals ideas you use and love.. sons a vegi and myself and OH happily eat vegi, or meat dishes.
