12TH JULY 2005
How are you feeling Tracey? Better I hope.
Milder today. Had my cake
Good thanks Nutty, better every day. How was the interview?
Just spent another £60 on animal feed... curious that we refer to chicken feed as a cheap item in general conversation, when in truth it is the most expensive of all the various animal feeds I buy! - If you are interested, chicken feed is 36p / kilo compared to sugar beet at 23p / kilo. However, sugar beet is just a cheap additive for the feeds, cattle and sheep feeds are around 30p/kilo.
Have you ever calculated how much your various menagerie cost you Tracey? - I am right in saying your young ones have lizards /snakes etc?
Hiya Boff, just a snake and five cats these days. Cats eat dried food which is about £30 a month but the Meazers are spoilt pedigree brats who insist on a variety so I spend loads on different types of wet food for them. The snake eats one mouse a week, which costs about £1.
The main expensed food-wise in this family is the kids, who seem to eat constantly and yet never get any fatter. Bastards.
when we had guniea pigs they cost us a fortune.all the fresh stuff and the dried stuff and they were really dirty and needed changing of the sawdust and hay every few day.........I was so glad when they finally went
Evening all got a lovely cold now doesn't seem a bad one though so hopefully better in time for Pembrey
Just had our great prizes for winning our age groups, a £10 voucher that we can spend at their online shop think we can almost get a pair of socks from there
Kids eh Tracey? Glad you are on the mend.
Not sure about interview. We will see. Thanks for asking.
Jones - you did so well. Can never have enough socks!! Look out London next year, you two are on your way!!
I only have me to feed. I eat quite a lot!!!
Have a jolly day RK. Hope your head isn't too bad tomorrow!
I'll bet that goldfish costs you a bomb Kev
got to take my mother to do some christmas present shopping..one of my least favourite tasks...............i love christmas food shopping though
Hope you survived the trip Seren.
Another week bites the dust...
Nice fine day today, very calm out there; hardly a hint of a breeze.
I dislike shopping of any kind - Christmas shopping has to rate as the worst though. The entire concept of buying gifts purely for the sake of it befuddles me! Far better to exchange heartfelt wishes than material junk. - If someone acually needs something that is a different matter... I already have a Christmas present - a cattle dung scraper
Very happy I am with it too - so happy in fact that I am about to go and scrape some cattle dung now as it has finally got a bit brighter out there.
Boffin - me too, hate shopping. The weekly food shop is done as quickly as possible.
At least its Friday.
friday..............I ran and cycled yesterday...but will be in awaiting my sofas today.the last thing needed for my room....so training has to recommence
off to the beacons tomorrow for a recce again
Yup - shopping ugh. Also, I totally agree Boff, Christmas really bothers me. Just yesterday heard myself asking the children to "try and think of things they want". Pretty sure it shouldn't be this way.
On the other hand, it's a lot better than it used to be - Amazon.co.uk and Sainsbury.co.uk. At least these days it's easy for me to waste money on stuff no one needs.
I don't do cards and all the nieces and nephews get money...........I also stop when they get to 18 and then restart when the great nieces and nephews come along.we have p of those already.....
i don't get presents for any brothers or sisters and already with the kids we do a secret sant present so that the boys don't ned to think about buying for each other now they are older..........
so apart from money for the grandchildren.......I only buy for 2 mothers...........my hubby and for our 3 kids...........end of present shopping.....
Morning all first day back in work today and still got the lurgy enjoy your dung scraping Boffin
