Men I mean. Or maybe it's just MWM that does it. What am I talking about? Well since I've been laid up with my leg MWM has been doing the household shopping and he's saving me a fortune.
He's just come back from the supermarket with everything we need for the coming week, including Easter Eggs for all the grandchildren, nieces and nephews and the bill came to half of what I would have spent!! He manages to do it every time and I really don't know how.
The only thing I can think of is that he just gets what's on the shopping list, unlike me who is a sucker for BOGOF's. If there's an offer on I have to buy it, but only if it's something we use I should add. Then there's the 'Oh those look nice, I think we'll try them', or I can't remember if we have any Tuna in the cupboard so I buy another four tins, only to find when I get home that we could stock the supermarket shelves with what we've got in our storecupboard! There again I have a thing about Tuna I can't walk past it, I just have to buy some - it's some sort of mental block I think.
Anyway I'm not complaining, MWM is keeping me well fed and we seem to have everything we could possibly need, plus we've still got money in the bank - what more could I ask. This could mean I will have enough in my account to buy another pair of shoes or/and a handbag when I'm back on my feet - now that can't be bad can it?
Thursday 15th March
I had a bad night last night so feel tired today. I may just have a little nap this afternoon. The knee is getting stronger but just seems to be aching a bit more today, perhaps I've done a bit too much with the exercises. I suppose I will have to get used to having up and down days.
