Ok guys I do understand that I am becoming a weather bore, but seriously people we are four days away from being in May and today we had a mixture of rain, snow and hail. In fact the lovely sweet children in my class had swimming today! Don't get me wrong they found it hilarious that it was hailing whilst they swam but not really expected. I realise Global Warming is effecting our weather patterns but where the heck is the warming part of it...
My thirteen year old has exams at the moment and after being asked how he got on in his maths exam today he pulled a face and said "Mum, What is a box graph". I had never heard of it and had to look it up, the boy is year 9 and I helped Liam with his maths GCSE revision and never came up with this graph. I am a touch concerned that I will have to go over the complete GCSE syllabus before I can help my thirteen year old revise.
Have you ever seen one of these before?
Today, I went to Aldi to do a small shop to last us the week but £65.00 and three huge bags of shopping later I left the shop. Am I a spend thrift?
I am hoping that this shop will also last part of the way through next week too as I have gone over budget by £25.00 arghhh!
I did buy:-
- 12 chicken breasts, 24 Sausages, 1kg of Minced beef, Fresh Chicken Nuggets, Minted lamb kebabs.
- 8 Jacket potatoes, lettuce, cucumber, mini plum tomatoes, large tomatoes, beetroot
- Pineapple, 2 packs of strawberries, 2 packs grapes, 2 plums
- Lots of cheese, Bavarian cheese, brie, cheddar, cottage cheese with pineapple, cream cheese, cranberry Gloucestershire cheese
- Sandwich chicken and a couple of lunch pies for ben
- Three different types of crackers
- 24 Egg waffles, 24 croissants, 6 muffins
- 2x curry sauces, 2 x tomato sauces, peanut butter and lemon curd and tinned tomatoes
- Fruit and nut snack bags, fruit wonders (snacks for school)
- Cloths for washing up
I guess I got a fair amount for the money.
Well, its been lovely talking to you but I need to go and pick Liam up from work so have a lovely evening and take care xx
