Thanks to our cupboards, and stashes, I still haven't done a "big shop" since the FH died. We have veggies aplenty in the garden, and it is no hardship to get our five-a-day from the variety we have there. The two fruit baskets we have received have kept us well supplied in that respect, and I am going to have to make apple sauce with the last of the apples so that they don't go to waste. I am going to go to Lidl this week, as there are a couple of things we are running out of, but we don't need an awful lot. There was a £5 voucher for when you spend £40 last week in a newspaper which I saw quite by chance, so I shall endeavour to make use of that, but I may go on Wednesday afternoon and take UJ along for the ride in case he wants anything too.

Life without the girls here is definitely quieter, but I am doing OK. I have had lots of phone calls and texts from them, and they are having a lovely time - they were in Stavanger today and it was HOT they reported!
Life on the ocean wave seems to suit them, and they are doing their own thing a lot of the time and just meeting up with my dad and MB for meals. Dad is happy that they are having a holiday and he gets to see them often, but he isn't actually having to take them places or amuse them, thank goodness!
