Youngest dd had a sleepover at eldest dds last night so me and oh decided to go to North Berwick for a mooch round the second hand shops and lunch (£12) Got a lovely "kag-in-a-bag" for dd - lovely coloured waterproof jacket that folds into its own wee bag (£5) and the 1st part of the 3rd series of Desperate Housewives which youngest dd loves (£5) - as you can tell North Berwick is quite an affluent area - some of the second hand shops I don't even go in as I know they are too expensive!
Did my Asda online shop - back to Week 1 menuwise so I had saved my shopping list as a favourite and it took hardly anytime at all to do it - £48.74 including delivery. Still don't like paying £4 delivery charge but it really is worth it to keep me away from the shops. I have been using my Asda credit card to pay for it (direct debit set up to always clear the balance every month) to gain points. I always used it when I did a big shop as I would get free delivery but as I am doing a weekly shop I dont get the free delivery. So I have changed to my Tesco credit card - will get less points but by using the Tesco deals will get a better return.
Started reading Dr Faustus as part of my Open University course - hard going but will keep at it.
Have another 2 driving lessons this week - lets see what other bad habits I can manage (last week it was coasting and even freewheeling!) My instructor must have nerves of steel!
