Not an inspiring week I’m afraid…
Saturday / Sunday – I had a few days off with the plan of doing something special for Hubby’s 60th but the plans didn’t come together. He didn’t want a party or get together and it’s the wrong time of year to go away in the UK. So we had supper and a few drinks at our friends house and watched his choice of films on Sunday.
Monday – We popped to Newport to get a watch repair done. I was surprised at how much the new Friar’s Walk complex has been built. The last time we saw it, it was pretty much at ground level. It’s all due to open in November and will hopefully regenerate the city centre. It’s a bit of shithole at the moment – full of ‘cheap’ shops, loan sharks and banks. There are very few ‘big shops’ there now.
Tuesday – Not much of a day until I decided to make a chilli for tea. My little pot was empty so I filled it from a new bag of chilli powder I bought a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t realise I bought extra hot!! I’ll have to careful with the amount I use. To say the chilli was a bit hot would be an understatement. Thank goodness for a dollop of sour cream!!
Wednesday – No Orange Wednesday – only thing to see was Shaun the Sheep which neither of us was in the mood for. We decided to raid our DVD collection instead.
Thursday – Shopping done with £50 vouchers I earned doing online surveys. So paying £2 for a week’s shopping made me smile. (I’ve actually earned £100 over the last year, not bad for a few minutes of time.)
Friday – Back to work – booo…. I really should make more effort to get another job.. don’t know if it’s my ‘manager mode’ that kicks in too often or if it’s ‘grumpy old woman’ mode but SO much of what goes on gets on my
We also had the sofa seats back – Hooray!! New leather on one seat and new filling in all 3. Looks like new again! The 2 seater has gone off for new seat padding now.
Saturday – quiet day pottering about the house. We were supposed to be babysitting today but Ashley and his mummy are both poorly. Means no visit and no Valentines meal for son and DIL. Still half term next week – planning a nice time out when we have Ashley for the day!!.
Here’s a selection for this week.
- Extra hot chilli – phew!

- Sainsbury baragain?? One for £2 or 2 for £4 had to smile…
