I had a look round the supermarket's sale section, just to see if there was anything we needed that had a fantastic reduction.....nope, so I wasn't tempted to buy anything.
I did notice that they've already started putting up some prices (to claw back what they reduced before Xmas I suppose), and again have made some packs of things smaller. E.g., I usually buy a 400g block of prepacked Cheddar, whatever happens to be on special offer that week. Some of them were reduced in size to 350g some while back, whilst keeping the price the same (do they really think us savvy shoppers don't notice?!), but there are still several that have stayed 400g. Well, one of the ones I regularly buy is now 370g - that's new, it wasn't like that before Christmas. Ho hum. I still won't be caught out though, as I always check both shelf label and pack size.
Took Betty to the vets yesterday for her 2nd vaccinations....the vet gave her a bacon chew to have to distract her whilst she did the jabs - not a peep out of Betty other than chewing and slurping noises! So now there are just 6 days to go before we can take her out. She is such a funny little thing, she makes us laugh every day. When she's outside sniffing around the garden, for example, she's making snorty snuffly noises, she sounds like a pig looking for truffles, it does make me laugh. And if we tell her off for chewing something she shouldn't and give her a toy to distract her, she carries the toy over to whatever it was she was chewing, sits and pretends to play with the toy for a few seconds and then sneakily goes back to chewing the chair leg or whatever....little monkey!!
Thank you for all the comments yesterday, and welcome to Cheryl from MylittlepieceofEngland.
