Shop or Not

Why do l bother shopping on line? Its supposed to be easier! not this week.
l thought l would be organised and book my slot - that went ok, l did my shopping -that went ok, then l waited and waited. l had a cup of tea with the last of the milk not a problem l thought the shopping will be here soon. Might be a little late due to the weather but thats fine. DH said "just check its on its way" "no need "l said "no ones phoned me and we have had no email" " go on just check". so l did to be told my shopping had been cancelled without any notification or care.
"l can re book it" they said "When For?" "Saturday" she calmly replied. What a load of old rubbish - l'm lucky l could get out and do my own shopping but what if l had been on my own and elderly and relying on this Supermarket Giant to deliver what then?
Thats my first rant of the New Year but it will not be the last l'm sure.

Anyway heres a piccy of some yummy Orla Kiely fabric l have managed to get hold.
It is called ' Striped Petal'
l may make a couple of cushions with some of it.

Happy New Year

l know its a bit old hat now but l have to say it anyway 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'.

l have just finished reading in the Daily Mail that today is the day when all have an epiphany - realising that we have put on average 3-6lbs of Christmas excess weight OMG. The OMG is because l believe l have put a little more than that on. Thursday will see me at WW and l will start the long ,lonely and hungry path to weight loss.

l have also started my Sealed Tin and £365 in 365 days challenge as detailed in Martin Lewis' forum(this man is a genius) last year l saved £1200 in my tin just putting in what was left in my purse at the end of every week.
If l can save anyone can so have a go - it also gives ideas on how to up your income which we all could do with l'm sure.
Speak to you all soon.
