Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

The Tower deep fat fryer I bought from B&M is EXACTLY the same as the Goblin one I bought from ASDA a couple of years ago.

Except that the Tower one does not have the mechanism that allows you to lower the basket into the oil with the lid closed. The mechanism that failed, and failed and failed.

Milk and Bread, I had nothing fore breakfast

I checked out some prices on the Morrisons website, went to the store, and everything was at least 10% more expensive! And all the offers did not exist except online! Prawnies up from £1 to £1.60!

But an old mate, who retired from his butchery post there a couple of years back, has returned "To make ends meet". He cut me some thick steaks and pork chops, then reduced it all by 25% as "It's been out of the main chiller for too long" (wink, wink).

Argos finally had stock of gas bottles for Sodastream, so I'm glad I had left the empty bottles in the boot a while ago.

A yearly Ring doorbell subscription.  I didn't really think that I needed a door camera. I thought the dog barks, I can hear someone is at the door.
But, its great.  My phone chimes and I can see who is at the door on my screen even if I'm in the back of the house or upstairs. I like that I can view the outside of the house without opening the blinds or going go the front door, especially at night.

Our new neighbours have one on the front door, and one on the back door. But they often get delays, so don't get the images on their phones for several minutes.

Mine is a few seconds delay  while the video loads. It's also linked to Alexa so I can  speak to the caller.

A great Aussie Shiraz in Asda was £5.19 last week (minimum unit price £5.07 in Wales).

Today it was being restocked, so I left the gut in peace and did more shopping, When I got back it had a shelf-edge price of £4.19! Someone had made a mistake and I took full advantage of it. 24 bottles, saving £24.

Miele dusting brush and motorised upholstery brush.
The Shark cordless that I got for upstairs is going in the bin. I'm fed up of it and it's constant filter fiddling and battery low life. The wand handle keeps detaching from the main bit and stops the floor tool. It's an overpriced piece of rubbish.
So it's back to my Miele that plugs in and actually does a much better job. I'll probably get myself another plug in hoover for upstairs as it's hard work taking this one up there. But I'll never buy a cordless again
