Howdy peeps Not the intended post for today but I have to talk to you about something... please stop with the panic-buying already! I went to sainsbury's earlier and they are literally paying overtime to half the staff to restock. It looked like this... Gaps are the anti bacterial ones Firstly, it's unnecessary if you [...]
Happy All Hallows Eve
Afternoon Peeps! It's Halloween and that means different things to different people. I don't celebrate it for religious reasons, but wish those who do a safe and happy one. More and more people here are choosing not to because there has been a rise over the last couple of years in the number of idiots [...]
Howdy peeps! If you've seen my Instagram today then you'll know I've had my first reindeer of the year! 😁😋🦌 It really is starting to look like Christmas!!! Things are in full swing in several stores now. I showed you B&M the other day, so I thought I'd show you a couple of pics from [...]

Sainsbury's also selling lunch boxes and bottles, and in larger stores, uniform and bags too. Wherever you are, try Amazon for a bargain!

Hi-de-hi Peeps! If you know me at all, you probably know what I'm going to say....IT'S FIVE MONTH'S UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!!!
