I'm on a countdown getting my new boots broken in ready for the big walk. I have decided to keep them as they feel pretty much ok anyway, so now I need to walk a few miles in them every day. Today I got the bus into town, then walked the two miles to the shopping centre on the other side. I needed to get an ink cartridge for my printer from Computer World. While I was up that end, I checked to see if there were any offers on cat food at Pets At Home. Oh bother, boxes of 48 Whiskas pouches for £10.49 and I couldn't get any because I only had my small backpack. I also found some bags of cat litter for 99p in Poundstretcher, the clumping kind which I usually have. I think I'm going to have to go back there in my car and stock up.
I got the bus outside Morrisons, back into town, and started walking home. I was about halfway home when a little red car stopped and two very nice people asked me if I wanted a lift. The elderly couple live in a bungalow next to the village green, and they are in the habit of waving to me whenever I walk by. Well, I couldn't say no could I, after they had very kindly stopped. So I got home a bit quicker than I had planned. I should have walked six miles today, but I only did four. Never mind, I will go out tomorrow.
I found some tins of fruit reduced to 19p, in Poundstretcher, they are out of date at the end of the month. Only room for three in the backpack, but a few pennies saved, eh! I don't particularly like grapefruit, too bitter for me, but not to worry, it has oranges in it, and it's good to eat more fruit. I have an idea.
Empty a tin into the plastic wotchamadiddly.
Zap it with the stick blender, and add some water, and there you have a very large fruit juice drink. I cheated a bit and added a spoon of honey, just to take the edge off the grapefruit. It will keep a few days in the fridge.
