Boxing Day: more Frying Pan photos

I hope everyone is enjoying Christmas. It hasn’t been a white Christmas here, but it is getting colder; it was freezing outside when I woke this morning.  Today’s photo was taken in 2011. I think we had snow quite early that year. (more…)

The Review: Countdown to Christmas

Thrifty Thursday: Christmas Countdown

The Aldi super-six this week are tomatoes (6), chantenay carrots (500g), savoy cabbage, lemons (3), swede and onions (1Kg). They are all 49p each and the offer ends next Wednesday. I think that webpage has been corrected. (more…)
