And Back to the Start

Thank you for the lovely comments. DH and bear painted the table white and did a wonderful job. I'm not including the full pic as the kitchen is awful, but it looks a little like this.

I had a lot of panic attacks yesterday. Today I feel full of aches and pains. I'm getting very bored of it all.

This morning I went to Tesco and bought a load of Christmas goodies. I spent nearly £100 after my 10% discount, and around £80 of that was goodies. It's loads of stuff like nuts, pickles, relishes and biscuits. The £80 includes some plastic 600g tubs of Heroes and Celebrations which were going for £3.50 at the Clubcard price which made them very affordable and suitable for stashing for emergency presents. I shall certainly pass a tub to the lovely people next door. I winced at the total, but it's slightly less than I expected. This time next month I will pick up fruit and things like meat, cheese and stuffing which are perishable. I forgot crisps, which is a nuisance, and I'm sure there are plenty more things that I need to remember. I'm going to have to get a list together. As it is, I doubt that I'll be picking up much in the way of biscuits and pickles until February. 

I didn't watch the England match. Mainly because it was on during the school run, but I feel very uncomfortable about the whole Qatar thing. I'm keeping an eye on the Wales match on BBC text commentary. Normally I would settle down with my knitting, but it feels sort of wrong. 

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. They've made a really good job of painting the table. It's a shame you don't live closer as I could hire them to finish off all my stuff!

    I can't trust myself to buy Christmas goodies this early ... if I did I'd have to go and buy a second lot nearer the big day because they'd all be gone!

  2. Sorry to hear about the panic attacks. I hope they ease off a bit.

    I haven't started anything for Christmas. I just can't seem to find the joy there any more. I want to shop local but it's just so busy out it makes me a little anxious.

  3. The painted table looks great! My compliments to the painters! Sounds like you found some good deals for stocking up on goodies for Christmas! Well done!
