Still Planning my Shopping and using Coupons (MONDAY)
Last month Sainsbury's sent me an email asking me if I still wished to receive offers and other marketing data and I agreed, after all you can always press delete or unsubscribe at a later date. Shortly after I received some coupons from them 3 x £4.50 off £30 and 1 x £6 off £30. (15% & 20%reductions or £19.50 off £120). I don't have a local Sainsbury's so I have to time my shopping with visits to the family or friends to make it viable. I used last weeks coupon because I'd received a £30 Sainsbury's gift card from a friend for helping her do some things around her house. I wasn't going to use this weeks coupon but my daughter asked me to pick the grandsons up from school yesterday as she would be working in London until 6.
After consulting Mysupermarket as I always do I prepared a shopping list to take advantage of any offers they had. I'm stockpiling 'kiddie' bits at the moment as it will soon be summer holidays and we will be looking the grandchildren far more. Things like cordial, ice-cream, biscuits and various spreads for sandwiches are handy so we can pack up and go to the beach.
eeing all these various bread products reduced was great, just the sort of ' at the ready' food for the freezer. I loved the mini assorted rolls but I wouldn't pay £1.40! (Sorry its blurred, most were 34p, finger-rolls 19p, pancakes 34p)
The boys had taken their bikes to school so nanny looked like a pack horse coming home with two lots of lunch/day bags and two lots of PE/football kit bags! I made them their tea and I had to have the obligatory 15 minutes on the trampoline with them but I did visit the loo first! I did trampoline classes when I was 14 and could do somersaults, hollow-backs and all sorts. Trying to convince the children that at 60 things are more difficult is hard work!
My daughter phoned to say she was calling in at Aldi to do a bit of shopping but would be home soon. She came through the front door with these beautiful flowers, gave me a big kiss, followed by a hug and thanked me for always being there. Arhhh they're beautiful and they smell just as good as they look! My favourite flowers, peony and stocks, I never realised the peony has a double centre. Nature never ceases to amaze me.
I presume the centre petals will also bloom, how beautiful are they? What's your favourite flower? Bye for now. Tx
