Pick up new glasses

December 9th, 2006 at 12:54 am

I walked down to the bus that goes to the hospital so that I could visit my friend in hospital. Who is fading fast! Each time, I see her there is a big charge. While at the bus stop I bought her two more meringue as she did enjoy the last one that I bought.

For the recipe see Meringues. I would make some but my oven needs repairing and I am seeing how long I can go without it. I am up in the 5 years time frame now. Smile

After the visit I caught the bus on to the city to pick up my new glasses. While there I did some shopping for some house t-shirts that were on special this week. At two for $10.00 I bought four of them, each in a different color all with V-necks. I wear them out shopping as good t-shirts while they are new then wear them around the house when they are strained or faded. This saves my better casual wear tops and they last longer too! Saving $8.00 here.

I bought some more bargains groceries while in the city too! As this is where one of the $2 shops is. Single pouches of soup 3 for $2.00, ideal for a quick meal with crackers. RRP is $1.89 each, saving $3.67. Pick up another DVD for $4.99 RRP $15.00 a saving of $10.00

As I was late getting around today so I had lunch in the city too! Chicken Roll & Coffee,* saving $2.45 with senior card. Bought another lot of bus tickets for $12.40, saving $14.30 with senior card discount.

BREAKFAST Muesli & Milk Coffee

    Wow. Five years without an oven? Did I read that right? How do you cook anything unless you have a microwave?

    I read your blogs everyday and thing you are amazing to do so well on your pension and not allow yourself to be in debt. Congratulations.

    You are a good friend. I do the same with my T-shirts. I work at home so don't spend a lot on clothes.

    Yes! you read right. I mostly cook in a microwave or on top of the stove which only has two elements are working now. I will price a new stove & oven next time I go near a store as the one I have is now not worth having fixed and it's 25 years plus old too!
