Did I mention stopping at Tesco, of course I had to, just to see if there was anything reduced. I found a trolley parked at the veg department and picked a few items which were a good price. Then the nice lady with the ticket machine came along and took them off me and said she was going to take the trolley in the back and reduced them even further. I didn't argue, ha ha, they know me there. So, I got my next weeks veg plus six bananas and a carton of soya milk for £2.69.
I've just finished off the 20p bean salad, the lettuce, and the garlic piza bread for my late tea, I suppose you could call it supper. A big chunk of 20p coffee cake to follow, it was £2.25, well you have to have it at that price don't you. This is my Sainsbury's haul, eleven items £2.20. I gave the young lady on reception at the hostel a pack of four muffins, she was well chuffed.
I've checked my mileage, as Joyful was asking, it was 479. I'm not sure how much fuel I used, about £50's worth at a guess. I don't work out the mpg, not much point, I bought the car, it's supposed to be economical. I drive at 55 - 60 mph on the motorway, no harsh acceleration and no harsh braking. Nice and gentle on the gas pedal. I stopped once on the way down there for about 20 minutes, and had a two hour break at my uncles on the way back. Probably about five hours driving each way.
Thank you for the translation Christy, I wondered if it had anything to do with fishing. Sorry Sft, I didn't take any photo's of the hostel. It wasn't anything special, looked a bit like a modern office block from the outside. Reception desk as you go in, with snacks and drinks for sale. A big lounge area with computers, TV, and cafe style tables and chairs, and sofas. Another lounge with TV and pool table. The members kitchen was too small for the size of the place. When you have cooked your meal you eat it at the table in the same room, a bit cramped. The restaurant wasn't very busy as most people seemed to cook for themselves. There was a quiet study room with books, but they were all fiction, not enough time to read a whole book if you are only staying for one night. I was in a six bed room, en suite with toilet and wash basin, and a seperate shower room. There was quite a lot of young foreign student types there, mainly Chinese.
I'll get the pics sorted tomorrow, goodnight.
