Poorly girls and i have been on a splurge..

Well it was inevitable really that we catch something..my mum has been ill and despite insisting on the No Visitor rule when ill people try to get in my house..it never works on her..she dismisses everything as just a cold..this is the woman who made us all ill at Christmas with her "itchy nose" a.k.a full blown cold..which was awful for everyone.
The girls have come down with sore throats and snotty noses..i have a soreish throat,Sam is snotty but so far hubby is ok..we need one person to maintain the balance.
This week we have been working to do the garden and also catch up with bits and bobs..i have been sewing and mending clothes and hubby has been in his greenhouse setting seeds and moving seedlings from one size of pots to the other size.
I have also spent some money..i bought the girls some really nice walking boots..and also some new quilt covers..Fern has a Candy Stripe one and Iris has a Polka dot one..we also bought a new frying pan..its huge and is an absolute pleasure to use.


I popped to town today and went to Home Bargains and found these..for 50p..you may notice 50p is my favourite price to pay for stuff.
18 clips for bags..all different sizes..i usually use pegs but they snap when they have been in the freezer.
We bought Coffee Whitener,normally we have Coffee Mate but that is just getting totally ridiculous in price..we bought some of Home Bargains own,400g for 99p so we bought 2 and got 800g for £1.98.It was selling fast and the Coffee Mate wasn't maybe it was because you only got 500g for £2.19 and i have to say the one we bought is just as good. We also bought a huge bottle of Fairy Liquid as well..i like Fairy it lasts a good while and you only need a little to get a lot of washing up done.

My hubby got us a bargain at the weekend..our dehumidifier has been making strange noises and sprung a leak..he has totally renovated it and it now works well..but we know how expensive they are to buy new..so he always keeps an eye out for one going cheap. He checks Lobay every weekend to see if one has been listed, he has been looking for months but this time he struck gold ..we got one that was only used 3 times and even better is was just up the road from us and at £15 it was too good to pass up.
So thats my week so far..a bit of a splurge but the good news is it was all paid for with my Ebay sales and not the bank account..well apart from the Home Bargains bits..
What have you been up to?

  1. That dehimidfier was a bargain. I rmemebr my first ever dehumidifier... it was a big ugly thing but boy oh boy did it suck the moisture out of the house. We have a littl model now and it still amazes me just how much moisture would be seeping into my home if we didn't have it. Love those little walking boots too. I have difficulty finding ones to fit my size 3 feet. The ones from Aldi are perfect for me and have never rubbed or blistered my feet. I am due a new pair sokeeping an eye out for when they are in store.

  2. Hi Cherie..we love our dehumidifier..like you say it sucks an amazing amount of moisture out the house..if we didn't have one i think we would have serious damp and mould problems..honestly we couldn't believe our luck that no one else bid on it..the boots are gorgeous..they have been wearing them in around the house..and when we went out at the weekend they didn't rub or hurt them which was a blessing..i had plasters in my mumbag not handbag but a mumbag lol..i need some new ones too and Lidls have some in so i will pop in to have a look.

    1. I haven't tried the ones from Lidle. I stick to the ones I know will fit and might be missing out on some better ones...should I try them or not. Decisions, decisions

  3. A dehumidifier helps us as well, esp. around the damp days.
    Those are cute boots, and I love the clips you bought.
