Saturday morning slob about

Good morning. Just catching up with Jo's progress while eating my super healthy breakfast of granola, walnuts, banana, raspberries, grapes, and Actimel, all thanks to yellow stickers.

For those who can't be bothered faffing with around with links, I've embedded these videos here from yooooyooob.







Must get a move on and do something today. First, take doggie a walk and collect free newspapers from my friend. Thanks for popping in. Enjoy your weekend. Catch you later.

  3. Your breakfast looks delicious. I was looking out for you yesterday morning on tv while I was watching Jo start her walk. Shame I didn't spot you.

  4. Breakfast looks delicious. Enjoyed the links you provided. Jo Brand must have been truly exhausted after day 1 and to think she does it all over again today. It does help I suppose that she has a support team. Do you think that she stays in the same walking boots/shoes day after day or ?

    1. Hello Sandy. I see that she was wearing the same footwear today as yesterday. I don't know if she will have a change later. I find it's not a good idea to change footwear, thinking it will make things easier. When I have finished walking for the day I used to take with me a softer pair of trainers to plod about in, but they hurt more than the actual boots did, so now I plod about in socks when I get to my overnight stop.

  6. Loved your post with jo yesterday. Hope you don't mind me asking but how do you cope with large aggressive crowds around the yellow sticker trolley. I walked away from it last night in tesco because I was horrified with the general attitude and pushing by people

    1. Hello alana. I think the behaviour of people around the reduced section will vary from area to area. In the run down inner city areas people will be more desperate to grab their share, and some of them want more than their share. Our out of town Tesco is mainly accessible to car drivers, and in the daytime there is a bus service. Mind you some snobby people can be just as greedy.

      Nobody is really nasty, some are a bit keener than others. Me being a smaller person I will get down on my knees and burrow through the legs from the bottom. My thoughts are, if you want it you have to join in. I always try and have a cheery attitude and chat to people. I am not there to fight them, I just want a share. By being nice sometimes works in my favour. When I have said I am disappointed that I haven't been able to get whatever, I have been handed a bag of whatever by someone who can manage with one less. Sometimes I will offer something to someone who hasn't managed to get one.

      If you don't like what you see you either walk away like you did, or you hang on in there and be prepared to be squashed in with a lot of grabbing hands. Or maybe another option, try different supermarkets. I don't think Sainsbury's customers are as physical as Tesco customers.

      I have noticed that there are more and more erm, non British born bargain hunters these days. It will get more difficult the more they let into the country, and they cotton on to what is happening. Maybe when it becomes a full scale war, I will give up.

  7. Go, Jo, Go. All power to her. Fresh fruit and granola with yogurt is one of my favourite breakfasts, Ilona.

  9. Hello,again.Oh that breakfast looks so good!I watched the video links, thank you.I now have a better sense of her and her humour and cause.Amazing.I hope all goes well for her.Yikes! I am frowning at people getting squashed for reduced items...such unkind and uncivilized behaviour.It may just be the end of reduced items or the beginning of strict rules re:such in stores. Management could decide that the unruly behaviour and unpleasantness outweighs the good and shut down the yellow sticker items entirely.Survival of the fittest should not(imo) apply to grocery shopping.Ah,well,to each his own.To all you walker/movers out there,keep on going,you can do it,and best wishes!D.

  11. I could eat a (second) breakfast like that.

    The Sains Local that I pass on a Monday evening (10.30 on my way home) has an on/off policy about yellow stickers. One time we often found bakery treats for pence. Then nothing and would walk in seeing someone putting all the bread into a large plastic bag to throw away so I couldn't even buy unsliced bread at full price even though they didn't close till 11. made me mad
