Patience is a Virtue..........2
Well blow me down I was only just talking about having patience when shopping, when I got a phone call from Wickes who had planned and quoted for the new kitchen. The quote offer was to run out yesterday 8th so John was asking if we'd made up our minds etc. We had decided we preferred Wickes style of unit to Wren despite being more expensive but previous experience tells me they normally come back with a further reduction and they did, £495 off the price plus and an additional 24 hours to sign on the dotted line. I suspect this would have been extended further if we'd said we couldn't get there in time. The plan is below, sorry its a bit fuzzy.
Once a month we get a load of junk mail through the door, most ends up straight in the recycling. But some is quite interesting. Farmfoods don't have a website whereby you can browse products. So you physically have to go in. I pop in regularly as they are right next door to Screwfix my favourite shop but only buy bread and milk.
In each months junk mail there is usually a Farmfoods leaflet and some of the products have caught my eye this month, especially as there are coupons attached to reduce the price further. 6 cans of Tuna for £3.99, less than 67p a tin, Finish dishwasher tablets 220 tablets for £15 and the Youngs Fish in sauce 3 for £5. Hubby loves Parsley whereas I don't, so a great way to mix and match. If I can bring down the price of the protein in our diet then it will help enormously. Once I have a proper kitchen again I will also be experimenting with more meat free dishes using pulses and beans not just meat substitutes.
I'm getting a little anxious about starting work next week. I have to travel to Kent for my first day to see around a distribution centre and meet the big bosses. I haven't worked since retiring almost two snd a half years ago. Doesn't time fly. Back soon.Tx
