I started my day with a healthy breakfast, a bowl of fresh fruit, peach, banana, melon, and grapes, and a drink of warm lemon juice made with half a squeezed fresh lemon. Mind you I was feeling peckish by 10.30 so I had a toasted cheese sandwich, ha ha.
The car is sorted out, the dent in the front caused by hitting the deer has gone, and I am £120 lighter. He's done a good job of repairing it, it looks like a new car at the front, pity he didn't wash the rest of it as well, ha ha. I would much rather give the work to a one man band who works in a small unit, than a big conglomerate with an astronomical heating and lighting bill. I will be recommending him.
I dropped the car in yesterday and walked the five miles back home, to get a bit of practice in for my big walk. I stopped off at the retail park and bought a box of 48 Whiskas pouches, and carried them back in my rucksack, to remind myself of what it felt like to carry weight :o) The lady at the checkout had to wait while I opened the box and put them loose in the bag.Today I cycled back to the bodyshop to get a bit more excercise. I must say I prefer the walking, pedaling into a headwind is flippin hard work.
I did a couple of other jobs while I was out and about, I needed some ink for my printer to print the maps off. Then I picked a few bits up in Morrisons. I think I can get away without doing a big shop till next week, I have enough in my store cupboard to keep me going. I was looking at the price of cheese in Morrisons, I like mature cheese but it's so confusing to find the best offer. I see the packs are shrinking, they used to be 400grms, then went to 375 grms, now they are 350grms, for the same price, around £2. I will only buy it on special offer. There was an offer on 250grm bags of grated mozzarella for £1, so that's a better price. Not sure what it tastes like yet, but worth a try at 500grms for £2.
I got a large cauliflower, it was reduced to 65p, the label said 'Store 2nds', but I couldn't find anything wrong with it. Maybe I'll open it up and find a load of caterpillars inside, ha ha. I see they have Youngs frozen salmon fillets on offer, a bag of four for £2 so I bought a bag, even though I'm trying to cut down on my fish intake. It's about three months since I last bought any, so not doing too badly.
The battery packed up in my hearing aid while I was out. I don't usually carry a spare unless I am going away. It's horrible not being able to hear properly, everything is muffled and I try not to speak to anyone as it's too difficult to keep up a conversation. It must be very isolating and frustrating for people who are totally deaf, I would hate it. Thank goodness for my National Health hearing aid, it was completely free and I get a regular supply of free batteries. I don't know why some people choose to buy a hearing aid from a shop, some of it maybe vanity as the National Health ones are not that attractive for those with short hair. Personally I don't give a toss who knows that I can't hear properly.
I'm going now. Pardon, did you say something, just a minute I'll pump up the volume :o)
