Sunday morning........

Didn't get around to posting last night like I normally do.  Ds came for a visit, his moustache is doing well and I am growing to like it.  His group have managed to raise just under $1,500 so far, their goal is $2,000.  If they reach that a guy in the office who already has a moustache will have to shave it off!!

I went into town on Saturday morning, and did my Shopper's Drug Mart trip.  I spent nearly $85 just like that.  Granted I stocked up on coke (4 x 12 packs) and butter (4 x 1lb) and a few other things, but I must say that $85 didn't go far.  Even dh was saying things seem to be getting more and more expensive.

There was a no tax sale on at Zehrs, so probably Superstore, Fortino's and Loblaws as well this weekend.  So I picked up a tin of cookies/biscuits for a Christmas gift, so saved 13% there are well.  Every little bit helps.  I have discovered that Bulk Barn sells imported British candy bars, so I will wait for the next coupon to come out and go and get the kids some candy for Christmas.  I normally buy them an imported British selection box each (notice how I put a link on that, as I just thought most people may not have heard of them?) but figured this would be a more economical way.

I bought some breakfast sausage yesterday.  They are a smaller version of regular sausages, and this pack had apple in them as well.  Anyhow I cooked them at lunch time  and put them into sandwiches for us.  This is something I have never done before as I am not a fan of breakfast sausage, but thought it would make a change.  I have suffered ever since.  My poor stomach is not at all well, and here I am Sunday morning, still with a bad stomach.  Dh meanwhile thought he had died and gone to heaven as he loves that sort of thing....

I don't even know if I am going to go to church as my stomach feel so bad.  So next time I get the urge to give dh a treat I must remember not to treat myself as well!!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Thanks for dropping by my site. It is so nice to have another Canadian blogger to visit! I'm home with an awful flu today, first one in about 2 yrears. I'm going to have a little browse through your site and will certainly be back! Just chuckling here, as soon as I saw Shopper's Drug Mart I felt at home.

It's good to hear you're still supporting something British. Sorry to hear you've got an upset tummu. You can never be too careful with sausage ... or pork in general. Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear about your poorly stomach. I know how awful that is and it goes on and on for days, doesn't it. I hope you soon feel well enough to resume your normal activities.
I checked out the link to the selection boxes. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some decent chocolate would it. We always have those too.
Blessings, Star

sausages are truly devil incarnate...I would devour the whole pack but my owners would die just like you. Grease and stomachs do not work well. Nothing better than getting deals and particularly at this time of year. Hope your Picassa problems are solved!

Hi Gill! I saw a story on our evening news about a group of men men growing moustaches. I thought of your son--What a good cause!

I was at the grocery store on Friday and noticed that everything sure is going up..Tis the season I guess!!

Hope you feel better!

Price increases seem to be a worldwide thing. We did our shop at Woolworths last Saturday, hardly bought anything but was deeply shocked by the bill. We got an 8c/litre fuel voucher from there but on the way home i noticed the petrol station had increased its fuel price by 10c/litre!
