Today I had a few places to go to, so I made a list. Do them all in one day instead of going back and forth wasting petrol. First off was the cash and carry. I needed some fruit juice and they had some Pineapple, three cartons for £1. I also got four tins of hot dog sausages for 50p each, not for me, my doggy friends like them. Oh, and I bought some salt to put on the weeds, thanks for your suggestions.
Next was town, I always park on the edge and walk in, I won't pay for parking. Bank to pay a bill and market for dog treats. I checked the charity shops because I want a medium size milk jug either glass or pot. Can't find one anywhere, probably because I only want to pay about 50p. It needs to be big enough to hold a tin of evaporated milk, but not too big, it's got to fit in the fridge. No matter, I can wait till the right one comes along.
I also had a scout round for Felix pouches on offer. The posh stuff, As Good As It Looks, is £3 at the moment, but I don't want my cats to get a taste for that. I want to stick to the bog standard one, which often comes on offer at £2.50 a box. Not to worry, I have not run out yet, I can wait for it.
While I was in town I called in to the Arts Centre, where they have two new exhibitions. The paintings have been on display for a couple of weeks now, but local florists and flower arranging clubs were asked to design displays, taking their inspiration from the pictures. The flowers then were placed in front of the paintings. I think this one works rather well.
Next and last stop was Tesco, just down the road. I took my till receipt in from last night, as they had overcharged me on a reduced item. You have to watch the yellow stickers, sometimes they don't always fully cover the bar code, and the till will scan it at the original price. One good thing about Tesco, if they make a mistake, you always get a full refund. I got back the full price 85p which I was charged, plus the reduced price 23p I should have been charged. So I got the item free plus 23p. While I was there I got a bottle of baby shampoo for 9p, baby bath for 11p, and a pack of 300 nappy bags for 35p, the cheapest dog poo bags you will find. A quick scout round to the reduced sections and I found some grapes, and cheese scones.
Tomorrow I am having the day off. The car is filled up with petrol and I'm going for a city day out. Somewhere I have been meaning to go and visit for a while now. There are several free museums and art galleries, so I'll pack my sandwiches and get off early in the morning. I'll bring some photo's back with me. Oh, and I have promised myself I will have whatever I want tomorrow, because it is a special day, so I might spend some money. Toodle pip.
