Wow!! This weeks shopping came to a total of £58.96 (I've updated the stand alone page this morning).
As we are both taking part in the Harcombe 30 Day Body Blitz along with over 4,000 others this July I needed to re-stock the freezer and cupboards with some fish, we had managed to work our way through all of it and supplies were right down.
The large bags of chicken portions are actually for the dogs (although Lovely Hubby has been known to snaffle the odd one) and so have been deducted from the total as have the tablets everything else is included in the £2 House Keeping Challenge budget
I'm getting good at remembering the receipts now, it's a shame I almost forgot the teabags and had to go back into the supermarket for them!!
Back of the receipt showing the deductions for the challenge.
There is now just £43 left in the £2 House Keeping tin. Now how long can I make that last?

It's Elderflower season and ours are blooming gorgeous, lining the woods with their wonderful flowers and littering the grass with the tiny perfect little flower heads, making for a delightful doggy walks with eyes fixed on the carpet of tiny petals.
They seem to be a little behind like most things are due to the cold start of Spring, but I'm not worried as I'm not making any Elderflower Cordial at all this year, we are being super strict this month, steering away from all sugary and processed products in our attempt to keep LH's diabetes and our general health and weights firmly under control. It is a beautifully tasty drink and has it's place this time of year, but we do recognise that if I make it we WILL drink it, so I am standing firm.
However if you would like the recipe to make some of your own I will direct you to HERE, my most viewed and used Blog entry EVER!! Thousands have used this and hopefully have been able to make gallons of their own Elderflower Cordial to enjoy. Each time I click on to check my Blog statistics there is someone, somewhere reading this entry and the numbers of views rise dramatically each week.
I did try to make Elderflower Champagne that year as well but it was not successful and so I never went on to try again. There really was no need to as this was the most perfect drink as it was.
And now I'm off to do my workout, I'm doing really well sticking to a daily workout, just 35 minutes worth at the moment but that is set to increase tomorrow as I'm finding it easier and easier.
