Bloody cat

For an hour I've been trying to get the cat in its now 11.35pm I've been out quietly shouting quickly followed by louder shouting tempting her with treats

Oh no she thinks it's a game
Off she runs
Up and down the back street
Teasing me on the wall
At arms reach
Out comes the laser pen
Not tonight this girls not for coming in

Followed by me in crocs
Pj pants
A yoda t shirt
No bra
Doing laps of the bloody back street with a laser pen

I've had to come in the neighbours are looking out the windows

She can stay out the little minx

Raining cats and dogs ooop north

Its been raining all night and all morning up north
the evenings seem to be drawing in and starting to feel chilly first thing in the morning, OH gets up for work around 5am and ive noticed a difference in temperature

its funny old weather thou, one minute torrential rain and the next brilliant sunshine, just as easily then turns to hail and thunderstorms

i hope we are not in for a long wet winter

im off back to bed for half an hour with a cuppa then off to work i go

Penny pinching

I ended up with a thumping headache last night so didn't manage the hill walk..

I didn't fancy the stir fry either..
oh heck! 
that got shoved in the freezer

I wanted something stodgy and filling as feeling sorry for myself
 (well more of a cant be arsed mood to be honest)

into the depths of the freezer i went..
i grabbed a cheap 99p farmfoods cheese pizza
some reduced spinach balls i cooked and froze in november
a squishy tomato from the fridge
the last teeny piece of cheese
and threw it all on

i found some spiral fries in the freezer to so bunged a few on a baking tray shoved it all in and cooked for 30 mins

that jazzed up a boring pizza and was bloomin lovely, with leftovers for lunch today too

much better!

So while all that was cooking i diced up some going squishy toms from the fridge and tubbed them up for the freezer ready to add to a lasagne or pasta, and cut up the reduced baby corn i bought for 20p, brought to a simmer and popped them on a tray for the freezer too


another job jobbed, ill add the corn to some currys i think or whatever springs to mind :D

The fridge is almost bare now, with only milk, butter, eggs, coconut oil, some sundried tomatoes and a tin of cat food, its all been used up

When i finish work this afternoon that will be my first job, i'll give the fridge a real good clean out
how does it get so mucky it gets wiped down every week!! 

The freezers a bit more full i think ill have a run through and see what i can use up and what meals i can cobble together for next week

easy tea tonight something along the lines of egg, chips and beans
or soup and toast

shopping day tomorrow

Back in the land of bloggy world and some yellow stickers

Hello everyone
Its been a while again we've had no internet as the laptop decided to give up I thought there was a virus on it so eventually forked out for Norton antivirus software and touch wood it's been fine since, worth it at £19 for the year I think, I'm sure Norton used to be around £70 odd pounds a few years back..any who fingers crossed.

Grabbed some yellow stickers this evening spent a total of 89p
That'll do me
Two bags of stir fry 15p each
Packet of baby corn 20p
And a hovis multi seed loaf 39p
should have been £4.10 so a nice little saving

We'll have the stir fry tomorrow and I've frozen the loaf and will use for my breakfast and lunches in the week.

Now I've put on a bit of weight and suffering from a bad hip and back hells chuffing teeth only 36 and really feeling my age so ive started walking up the massive hill every evening with the dog absolutely kills me but when I reach the top I'm rewarded with feeling good and a lovely Tesco extra store, If I time it right usually around 8.30pm ish there are a few bargains to be had so all's good, and I'll only buy things we can use or need, that reminds me I had to get a tin of cat food the cats have decided they don't like anything at the moment only tinned gormet pate! Christ on a blooming stick even I don't get pate! Luckily have found some offers on it in town some places 3 tins for a pound and others 4 tins for a pound ..honestly!

Anyway Im still blaming my thyroid although it's probably the love of Jammie Dodgers that's got me putting on weight :D if I'm honest

Ah well we can't all be perfect

I'll be back soon
I promise
