Good news - several people have commented that the Aldi vouchers will be in the paper tomorrow, so I shall definitely be making an attempt to find a copy of the Mirror then. I need to stock up on some of the things which we prefer to get from Aldi, like their washing-up liquid, laundry liquid and shower gels. We won't spend £40 on just those items, but there will be tinned tomatoes, probably a little meat and some fish, fruits and veggies and other items to bulk up the order to hit the target.
And then there was the Sainsbury's order last night. It just gets better! I used a £10-off-when-you-spend-£50 voucher again on the order, and replenished the fridge and cupboards with things that I had whittled down a little whilst the YFG was away last week. The £1 delivery slot was at 9-10pm last night, but we actually got the order at 8.15pm - the driver had come from such a distance with so few deliveries that he was running well ahead of schedule and called to see if he could deliver early. After me, his next delivery was at 10pm, and well over 50 miles from me, heading north! So I actually got a £2-worth delivery slot which meant we had it all scanned and packed away well before bed time! And there was another £10 off voucher attached to the receipt, to be used by the 10th March, so I shall have to organise my shopping to accommodate that - can't miss out on that!
Last night, we had to go to school for a meeting about the YFG's exams - we are on a 10 week countdown, apparently. Revision all the way. She is staying after school today, I think, to work on her Textiles coursework project. Hard to think my "baby" will be 16 this summer and heading towards A levels and beyond - time really moves on when you're not looking!
The sun is shining now that the showers have passed over, so I am hoping for a brighter day today than we had yesterday. Lots of work to do on the phones today, but at least I am working at the back of the house where the sun is brightest. Washing is already done and on the airers in the back bedroom so that will benefit from the sunshine too.....Have a good day xx
Phew it aint half 'ot
