First the PS............ must say thank you for all the crossed fingers for Colin in hospital. We are hoping that the tests don't show that his body is rejecting the donor stem cells. That would be rather drastic - to put it mildly.
Welcome to new followers - two people I think - Hello and Hello
And the main topic for today..............pennies pinched.
Dried washing outside (not on the day of Storm Eleanor 😁 obviously) and finished off in front of fire rather than tumble dryer.
Cooked more than one thing at a time in oven.
Took pack up food and had free drinks and water in Cancer Assessment Unit while waiting at hospital.
9 hour power-cut must have saved some electricity!
Put spare 4pt milk from fridge into freezer before it went out of date after Col went into hospital
Eating from fridge - especially after Col went back into hospital leaving me to eat everything!
Remembered to use car park voucher in Stowmarket Asda.... so free parking
Looked round charity shops in Stowmarket - bought nothing, not even half price Christmas cards.
Printed out voucher for free can of fruit
Took pack up lunch when visiting Colin
Spending Saturday 30th Dec - Friday 5th Jan
£3.60.... Hospital car park
£1....Eggs from local roadside stall
£19.10..... Things that I was getting short of in the cupboards. Asda - including Pharmacy, bath sponges, fruit, coffee, cat food, pasta, nuts and Prune Juice and Jelly Babes for Col! plus cornflour or as it says on the till receipt cornFLOWER!
£3.50 Park and Ride for hospital visiting
And a real flower......... look what has appeared in the lane opposite the house.
Just love Ed Sheeran's new song "Perfect", it gives me shivers. Actually love all Ed Sheeran music. Maybe I'll queue up next time they sell his clothes at the Framlingham charity shop, it's not far away!......Hang on, I'm 62 so maybe not.
Enjoy your weekend - I'm seeing small granddaughter - the first time for over a month.
Back on Monday
