Scavenger Hunt

Friday 14 November 2014


Hello Folks!

Well it turns out that not only did I have a lovely weekend to myself the other week, the boys (Dads and Kids) had a good time on the rugby tour too.   When the Gloucester v Exeter match finished ~ Gloucester lost :-(  and everyone left Exeter stadium the boys went onto the pitch and had a kick about.  Afterwards they went onto Torquay where they stayed the night; tales are emerging of what they got up to, which I probably don't want to know about.  They played a midday game on Sunday which they lost, came home and fell asleep.
Back at home and we've actually had a frost.  Just the one.  It's now turned wet and windy.  Really windy.
I made myself a crochet poppy this year, of course I still donated to the Royal British Legion, and we held a silence at school.
I've also been 'buying' things from Tesco Direct.  Not really buying because Tesco have their Boost offer on at the moment, meaning that Tesco vouchers are worth double their value in some departments.  I save my vouchers for just this occasion, you may remember I got my SLR camera with them last year.
This year a Karcher Window Vac.  This is really, really good.  You wash down the window with soapy water and the vac sucks all the water off and no smears!  Brill. 
 And also got a new Dyson, as my old one I've had for 15 years.  The new one is much more compact, lighter and has such good suction that I had shoulder ache after using it!  All the better for not actually costing me any real money. :-) 
My blogging has been few and far between of late and I have missed telling you of what I have been up to and reading what you've been up to as well.  The internet in these parts has become dreadfully slow and it virtually impossible to use on a Sunday evening which was my blogging time, so I've decided to try another day.  Maybe Friday maybe Saturday, we'll see.  

As I write this the dog is curled up behind me in his 'bed.'  It's an old single duvet folded into quarters,  we have to pick up the top layer so he can get into it.   If we don't, he stands next to it and whines.  Pampered pooch!
Miss Clicky is working at Waitrose whilst studying and two of her shifts are evening ones.  She comes home with all manner of reduced items, mostly cakes, buns, and the odd cooked chicken, but other things too.  Yesterday it was this Camelia for a bargain 25p.
That's me for now, I'm off to catch up on some bloggy reading with a nice cup of Earl Grey, another one of Miss Clicky's bargains ~ 20p for a box!

Have fun................Clicky Needles.


  1. I love Earl Grey.....can i join you? xxx

  2. I like your Tesco buys, I got my DSLR from them with vouchers as well. I'm envying you your Waitrose bargains, lucky you!

  3. You are a clever shopper! The window vac is a totally new method of cleaning to me. It sounds wonderful!

  4. Good for you to find those bargains! I think we need a new Dyson, too. We're "snowed" in and enjoying being by the fire. Have a good weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. I am reading your blog right now drinking my morning cup of tea, see we have that in common. Glad you had some time to yourself, it is a beautiful thing isn't it? Love the photo of the dog! I have a Dysom actually this is my second one, my first one had better suction. No wonder you are not getting any projects made, you are cleaning too much!

  6. I remember you getting your camera last year as I'd just got mine and they were the same. What a good idea saving your vouchers for a big purchase when they have the boost offer on. I got my Dyson just after we got Archie, it's an Animal, one for getting pet hair up, and I love it. The customer service is fantastic too, it's had a couple of problems but their helpline deals with it straight away. What great bargains Miss Clicky is coming home with, I love the camelia.

  7. How great are Miss Clicky's shopping bargains, nearly as good as yours!!! I had wondered about those window thingys, good to know they work well. I have an old dyson, it is so heavy, but does well and has lasted longer than any other vac I have ever had! xx

  8. It's great having time to ourselves when everyone else goes out!! lol Hope you
    enjoyed yourself. Great when you get some wonderful bargains.
    Cheers, Anita.

  9. Oh Lordy, I'm very envious of Miss Clicky's job in Waitrose. Lucky you!! xx

  10. oooh I love a good bargain. Lucky you :)
