The car is a pleasure to drive, goes really well, and I hope it will prove to be economical to run - the tax disc is cheaper, to start with, and the diesel should outperform petrol in the miles per gallon stakes.
The storecupboards are looking bare, though, and I will have to re-stock them over the next week or so - it is typical of me that I had those cupboards groaning before Christmas, absolutely full of food to get us through a tough winter, I believed, when the snow would lay thick on the ground and I would not have to traipse to the shops! The winter has been really mild, the stores have been depleted - and guess what? Those really cold days, with the chance of snow? They are coming this week!!
I am still trying to use stuff up, but the staples like rice, pasta, UHT milk, jam, etc are running out, and so the shopping list will have to go up on the board, and the trip to the shops made. But which shop? I'm not sure that I want to darken the door of Tesco again, but do I cut off my nose to spite my face, so to speak, by not taking advantage of the offers they have? Perhaps I should travel a few more miles and support Morrisons and check out their new M range...don't know yet. Will think about this one more - what do you think?
Hope you are all OK and warm in this chilly weather - we have the fire alight and it is warm and cosy in the sitting room. About to go and dive into a hot-water-bottle-warmed bed now.
