    Default Oh no! Easter is coming

    Got tricked into going to the supermarket with SWMBO this morning. I hate the place!!

    As I was muttering and walking, pushing the trolley, a packet of hot cross buns leaped from the shelf into the trolley. Then a packet of marshmallow eggs did the same.

    Darn, I have just got rid of the extra KG or two that I put on each Christmas from eating Christmas mince pies and Scorched Almonds.

    Life is cruel

    Yuk. Loathe those nasty dry cinnamon filled buns.
    Not so keen on marshmallow either. Or those fruit pie things.


    I used to do online shopping, then collect it. For those items I couldn't get elsewhere.....I didn't buy meat or veg from supermarkets.

    Now, my mum goes, she has supermarket obsession, I have semi-trained her no to stick to the list but I do have to halve what we want cause she buys double.

    Rather tricky when I only write down one of something....

    Chocolate is good, but Warehouse for that. My brother bought a box of his fav dark choc assortments, $4, yesterday. Don't need to wait for pagan festivals though.

    It's amazing how often chocolate just leaps off the shelf and into the trolley. Happens all the time

    And I thought I was the only person this happened to.

    Maybe now SWMBO will start to believe me.........
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.
    No, you aren't "entitled" to it. Too damn bad, Get it the way I did.
    WORK FOR IT.

    Be very careful saying that you will get lead up the path of false security, then one day WHAM!!!

    My SWMBO always says I never listen, last night she said while you're going out to the kitchen can you flick the switch on the jug and boil it,that's all you have to do.

    OK I did -- then when I came back she said I assume you checked to see how much water was in it -- NO ( I had though) you said JUST flick on the switch, so that's all I did. Wellllll the LOOK I said I listened to you that's all you said I had to do so I did it. - yeah OK LOL

    Women just don't know how to phrase things. A few years ago she asked me to.......

    "walk round to the corner store to get one litre of milk and if the have any of those nice mandarins, get six"

    Then she went mad at me because I came back with six litres of milk.

    Just can't understand why?

    Ahem.
    I asked husband to make the breakfast yesterday.

    He chose scrambled eggs. Then came and asked me how to do it (he knows). Then made them, and his toast, and salt and peppered his, sat down to eat and said oh I haven't done your toast or s&p, and yours is in the pan....

    I had rather a lot to do at that time...and was also making canneloni for dinner.
    So I said here's the canneloni pasta, the mix to go in them, stuff mix into your tubes - I'll do the others - just make a sauce and there's your dinner.
    He got the point....
