10 dozen down & my Bell Canada bill

now onto my own jam for the year.  There is actually 9 dozen and a half dozen of raspberry jam and 9 jars of blackcurrant jam.

Dd, surrogate dd and maid of honour are coming over next month to put them in decorative boxes and tie some fancy ribbons around them, so I have been told.  As long as I don't have to do it I really don't care!!

I may make another batch which is 8 jars of raspberry jam for just in case, as we haven't got a full count yet of who will be coming to the wedding; and it's better to have too many than not enough in my humble opinion.

Also look what turned up on Friday morning:

That was pretty fast I thought, also it comes with the bonus digital timer and four mixing bowls, so that was good.  Weighs a ton weight though, luckily for me the UPS guy brought in right into the house for me.

Spent a delightful hour on the phone trying to get my Bell Canada bill cheaper........oh joy!!! After speaking to various people I managed to get and getting no where I ended up at the loyalty department and got somewhere...YEAH!!!  My monthly bill for the tv and telephone prior to me calling was $153.15 plus taxes, after calling $110.65 plus taxes for a savings of $42.50 per month.  I am a happy camper........

Neighbour called by to say he was shooting the coyotes on Saturday that have been hanging around as they are bothering his dogs.  He asked dh if I was feeding them.............I told dh I can be a dimwit but I am not that stupid!!!!

after reading all about your yummy rasberry jam, I bought some today.
I bet its nowhere near as nice as yours.

Some people bother me too, but I don't shoot them.

All that jam looks wonderful!! I still think that s the best "keepsake" I've ever seen at a wedding!! :)

Good job on your BELL bill! Awesome! :)

wish i could bundle my bell canada and bell aliant account but they won't do that. WTG on the jam!

Those jars look so lovely all stacked and ready decoration/wrapping. Be sure and show us what they do with them.

That is a substantial savings on your phone and tv.

Now, I have a is your electrical bill doing after that change a while back...I forget what it is called, but where it is cheaper per kwh when used at OFF peak hours--did that help you bill any?

Raspberry Jam as a bonbonierre! What a great idea. Much better than the ceramic bride and groom with sugared almonds that I had at my Anglo/Aussie/Italian wedding.

Love your kitchen maid, too - I love my mixmaster.

love Kaye xoxox

Bell Canada has been an ever ending thorn in my side; I would dread my hydro bill after processing that much jam, Gillian, as I usually do after I do my pickles down.

Excellent work.
Re: Bell, cannot stand talking to them.
