It's that time again already.
There hasn't been much to tempt me recently at the charity shop - other than the chocolates my manager bought for me, isn't she lovely. However, as I was carrying a donation through to the workroom I spotted something
a nice Pyrex bowl. Smashed my small mixing bowl a while ago and a replacement has been on my list so this is ideal, what makes it more exciting is that this one was made in the USA rather than all my other dishes which are from J A Joblings in Sunderland. Hooray! At £1.99 it was a nice price too.
Oh, we got the car back, and the bill was just over £90, far less than we thought, and that was mainly to pay for the tow truck. The mechanic doesn't actually know what caused the problem but we're good for now and we can take it back at any time.
We also won £25 on the lottery. I know people have strong feelings about the lottery, we have our reasons for paying in to it and that's that.
That's about it for this week, I'm sure no-one needs to see the full packet of puppy training pads I bought from the charity shop for 49p, not a fun buy but a very useful one. Two extra shifts at the shop for me this week too, not money saving, but it has been fun so far. To avoid the temptations of the cafe or chippery we're taking soup and sandwiches to the football this week and there will be pasta bake for when we get home.
