Morning Jas, Morning to All smile

I'm at toddler group this morning too...I'm getting through my morning routine quite well. I still couldn't find a full load of washing shock I bought a new brand of washing powder yesterday and REALLY wanted to wash something with it blush Yes sad isn't it! So I have found some towels to bulk the load out!
I shopped at Morrisons...instead of Lidls....BIG MISTAKE!!! There is waaaaay to much stuff to tempt me in there! Lidls...you are in and out and the choice is limited...Morrisons is huge compared...and I am a complete sucker for consumerism. (Plus I had ALL 3 KIDS with me)
We ended up with pretty much everything that had Spiderman on it...cereals and Frubes...for DS, then DD2 wanted Bob yoghurts...DD1 spied Spongebob crisp things.....Good Grief...I had forgotten the perils of shopping with the kids! I also spent a small fortune....(but it feels FANTASTIC!!! It is sooooo much nicer than comming away with things you've never even heard the name of, and pizza's that taste so bizarre you have actually become ammune to the weirdness! Lidls have weird pizza's....cheap...but weird hmm....and I bought Goodfella's at Morrisons and the whole family sat round the table and rejoiced!! grin)

shock blush LOL! sorry...that was a bit of a sycho weirdo rant!...thats what being confined to Lidls does to you! (You see its nice to get out once in a while)

grin I always shop at Lidls (we actually only have a Lidls, Somerfield and a Morrisons...used to have a quicksave but it has closed down)...as it keeps the cost of the weekly shop down (although I do sneak to Iceland which is just next door too) I hardly ever really go to a big supermarket these days, so when I do I can't resist the packaging grin
When I visit reletives in Coventry I always go to the Tesco Extra hypermarket thingy...and can literally spend a whole morning in there...I am like a kid in a sweet shop!! It really is just as well I don't have that much choice on a daily basis...we would be skint!
(It helps the bank balance when you live in the arse end of nowhere!)

SlightlyMadSweden Thu 27-Sep-07 13:28:18

I just came on and followed the link on my last FLY thread and then realised I missed a whole day blush as it was taking me to Weds....


Well, I need to dig out my routine from pre FLYhospital days....but I have to say that I have been procrastinating over doing my knicker draw for a few months....and yes I have nursing bras in there that should be chucked....I even have pre-DTD bras in there which are a size too small (well 1/2 a size depending on time of the month!!!)

My immediate job though - decluttering kitchen draw as that is what I have started as a result of switching things around....catch yo ulater.
