We were once again at the hospital yesterday, getting the results from the recent holter monitor. There was still a few minor hiccups but there is still room for manoeuvre with medication. A trip into town gives us the opportunity to have a stroll around the harbour and this week there was a European market. We didn't loiter in that area long as the rain started to come down in buckets so once again the treat of the bratwurst was postponed. We do enjoy a browse in the charity shops and we did get lucky once again picking up cotton yarn and a couple of books. I was tempted by a couple of tops that still had the tags on but resisted the temptation as I don't need any more clothes.
The grand total of £2.60 was spent, so quite the bargain.
Our food bill seems to have escalated over the past few months. We have made a few adjustments to our diet, but nothing that would justify the sharp increase so we are going to reevaluate our eating and shopping habits to try and tighten our belts a little. We are eating a lot more fish and was quite surprised at how much this adds to the shopping bill. I took a lot more notice of the prices as we were putting things into the trolley yesterday and was quite taken aback at how much inflation has affected the prices. Since downsizing our household bills have been cut drastically so thankfully we don't have to worry too much but I do like to have control. I need to take stock and sort out the pantry but tomorrow is another day.
I recorded some of the Christmas in July films so I am going to get some crochet out and enjoy one with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. Gerard is pottering so I will leave him to it...
See you soon.
