If you're in Ontario you may have seen this ad on tv.........


I think that is such a funny advert, don't you?

I seem to have good expensive taste.  I really, really like this light fixture:
I need three though for my front hall, they are from here.  The price over $500 each.  Not sure what I will do about it.  I will have to think on this for a while.

Did my grocery shopping on Friday and ended up spending $91.10 with savings/coupons of $8.50.  I have updated my grocery total in the left hand column.   My best deal of the week is this packet of Bombay Mix.
I bought twelve packages in total and paid 25 cents per package and that included taxes.  What a deal.  Dh likes them and they have an expiry date in 2016; I doubt they will last that long though.

Knitting update:  Got around 9 rows knitted and discovered I had picked up an extra stitch.  So pulled a couple of rows out and then got totally confused.  So pulled the whole lot out and then cast on again {{SIGH}}  However this is a learning period and the more I do it the more I will learn.  So all is not lost.

funny commercial! WTG on the savings, I paid 4 dollars for a Joe Fresh new pair of velour pants last night, originally 40 dollars, it was because it was a size 2!

I've pulled many a row out too. Your are so right, it's all about learning and patience. You will get it and then you will wonder why you've never done it before. Keep at it!

Those lights sure are expensive, but will be timeless to you I am sure. Good for you to not give up on the knitting
