Skint

Well I excelled myself  this weekend and survived the wet muddy hell of the scooter rally.  Thanks to his mate sponsoring the event for us , bores me to tears but it made Mr BH a happy man he got to spend lots of time talking gibberish with his mates  and i mostly slept through the whole event ..lol

As usual his mates are suitably appalled by the state hes in , most hadnt seen him since last summer , his mate was a huge help with the getting him around and  the up  in a morning side of things . But by Saturday Night he was exhausted and because of the mud, content to hold court in the tent . He was most impressed that he wasnt the most crippled there , a couple were wandering round with portable oxygen , endless crutches and sticks and a bloke with Motor Neurone in an electric wheelchair with a pair of carers kept getting stuck in the mud and having to be rescued it was a memorial rally for a friend of Mr BH who died of cancer and were all getting old .   I once again proved myself to be weird and an oddball by not drinking , snoring by 9pm  and walking the mile and a half into Syston  to wander round the charity shops . I think the last act just appalled everyone...lol   Didnt  buy a thing not due to poverty but because they were so damned expensive , the one notable exception The Caudes Equines Shop , never seen a shop with so much craft stuff , mountains of it , hidden away in a tiny modern shopping precinct . glorious , cheap and full of wonderful . But I was good and didnt buy a thing, its all about needs not wants at the moment .

On the shopping front the kids are being wonderful , though im not so sure about the nutrition levels of what they buy , diets are very much out of the window for the foreseeable future , im still wasting away, because there are a lot of things i cant eat due to my insides having been reorganised . Im still the size of a hippo but im back to my small hippo clothes at the moment .

This months shopping list will include , sugar for jam making , razors for my pet ewok , toilet rolls thanks to Penny the toilet roll killer who is growing at a rate of knots . Gram Flour , sack of Onions, something i dont grow because they are so cheap to buy . Endless everyday value from Tesco because its the nearest supermarket and they keep sending me vouchers that make a big difference even Tescos realise were poverty stricken. All topped up by the occasional yellow label item from the Coop in the next village . I did manage to score a good bagfull  yesterday thanks to my son , £3.75 for loads of bread, new potatoes in herb butter and mushrooms . Sadly the Moy Park chicken shop is under renovation till the 7th so i cant do a chicken run , im hoping the prices dont go up due to the renovation , we will see .  Now I just need to see if payday comes around on Friday , I await this with interest!!

  1. Fingers crossed you get paid Friday. I'm glad you made it out of the house albeit to a muddy scooter rally, it must of provided a little break for you. I managed to bag some yellow sticker bread too the other day. Bread can be so expensive!

  4. I dont think you're strange and would have walked to the charity shops with you. Sometimes just getting away from the cleaning, laundry and cooking chores is good. Even if it is all waiting for us when we get back home. :) A little prayer for you finally getting paid.
