Life 2 (based on icon from tamnonlinear)

Just a note to everyone who reads this. Over the next few weeks I'll be working some long hours and may not be able to update much in here. I'll try and read my friends list but may only manage it once a day (and that will be a skim through) so if there is something you want to make sure I see then make sure you e-mail me a link to it.

I'm a bad shopper!

Let me be a bit more specific :) It's not that I'm a slow shopper or that I don't know what I want when I get there. No, it's that I somehow manage to end up with more shopping than I thought I was going to get. An example may help to explain this. On Friday night, after I'd driven back to London, I went to the Tesco supermarket just across the road from me. I just wanted some milk ... what I actually got is listed below.
  • Milk - two 2 pint containers, one for the weekend and one to take back to Cardiff
  • Two ready meals - for the freezer, ones that I can cook from frozen
  • Strawberry trifle - three little pots of low fat ones
  • Two packs of pork sausages - on special offer - one for Sunday morning and one for the freezer
  • Three packs of soup - for freezer
  • Four fresh corn-on-the-cobs
  • Honeydew melon
  • Bramley apple - was cooked with sultanas and sugar today
  • Pita bread, low fat humous and low fat taramasmlata - lunch today
  • Maple and pelican plait - breakfast today, yummy
  • Computer magazine
  • Camera magazine
Now most of those are quite reasonable things, it's just always worries me when I think I'm gettin some milk and end up spending just over 30 pounds.

Ahh it's just gone midnight so I'll post this and head off to bed.

Take care, peace
