I've usually got a selection of boxes around the place for packing and posting stuff in, but I have to wait until the cats have finished playing with them first.
I sold this Samavar here, and had a box big enough for it, but look who got in first ! It's Rasputin aka Thug. He thinks I can't see him.
Yes, getting a bit nosier now ...
Right now she's evicted Thug, tipped the box over and moved in with the packing. (she's a stroppy little thing)
The commotion brought Sopicat down from his heated des-res upstairs, so I had to give him a box of his own.
Here he is shouting at me that as he's been good enough to come down and grace me with his presence, I should feed him !
I got some bargains from the bread department the other day. I used to bake my own bread, but by the time I'd bought the ingredients, spent the time in preparation, the energy involved in cooking, plus the washing up, I decided it wasn't worth it, so now I pick up reduced loaves when I can and freeze what I don't need immediately. Just look at these:
Hovis 'best' bread, i.e. granary/seeded for only 10p per loaf.
These packs of 6 teacakes were 19p a pack. One for the breadbin one for the freezer as with the bread.
Two packs of plums for only 10p per pack.
A box of 12 mince pies for only 12p. That's 1p per pie. I'm a mince pie addict. What's a girl to do ?
Thank goodness they're only around at Christmas time.
