Freebie And Bargain of the Week
I don't think I have either this week.
I did, however, put £1 too much into the window cleaner pot so I rescued that and put it in the sealed pot. I didn't go out for coffee after work this week saving a few pounds, again into the sealed pot. We were supposed to be going out for a meal this weekend but our friend has had to cancel so that's who knows how much not spend, it made the bill for Christmas* and New Year** buffet food less painful.
Finishing my small quilt has made me want to get the big thing finished. To save both money and sanity it's going to be more of a patchwork throw than a quilt, so I'm just stitching the backing and front together and leaving it at that. It's so big I don't know how I'd manage to stitch it with wadding as well. It's mainly for show anyway.
I've done some more batch cooking, the freezer is almost full. I have a pile of socks to darn over the weekend, my old boots made my feet slide forward and all my socks have a hole in exactly the same place. Should give me something to do when watching the winter sport.
From the charity shop I bought a small wooden decoration and a giftbag, there was no other temptation.
*Dan's Mum is rather fussy so we have the same things each year. The main switch is that we pay for it now.
** I had enough to cobble food together for my brother and his girlfriend staying for one night, but now it's going to be at least two nights/three days so I needed a bit of padding.
