Not sure about the flagellation, but I'll try anything once. (Well, most things.)
So we've heard
I wouldn't beat yourself up about it.
* at this point i was seriously considering making an apposite post about how commonplace self-flagellation was in the Middle Ages, but wondered whether some sort of half-arsed apology as to why i didn't would've proved equally persuasive *
So i didn't.
Reduced freezer back at Iceland, apparently had loads of 10p items in again today but I missed them. Over 4k of stock to shift at half price or less so worth looking if you're in, it's in the second aisle near the back.
Today I had 500g of buttermilk chicken wings with a buffalo glaze for a quid, pizza express spicy meatball pizzas for 50p and some indian spiced cauliflower also for 50p. My freezer is now full, as I also hit M&S yesterday and got loads of reduced stuffs - fillet steak for tea!
Little over 5kg of gammon misshapes from the meat van in the market Square. Some steaks, some small joints, £5
Last night in Farm Foods, duck meal in a bag. Ate one last night and was impressed for a quid. It's 340g and half that is duck, you also get a single potato gratin and a sachet of sauce. Small meal but tasty, may pop back later and see if they have any more. Add a couple of asparagus stalks on a plate way too large with the sauce artfully drizzled everywhere but the food and you'd be paying £20 in a restaurant!
Saw a clock in the Katharine House at Norton Bridge - I didn't really need it, but at a tenner, it was worth it just for the case*.
A Hermle, similar in style to this -
- but with a two-spring, passing strike mechanism - counting the hours and one strike on half-past.
I've just hung it up for a trial run and all seems perfect, in fact, it is a very quiet mechanism, which is usually a good sign. I'll run it for a bit to see what happens, then, maybe, give it a bit of attention over Christmas.
* in fact, you could pay half of that just for a key...
If I didn't know better I would be sure you were my next door neighbour, he too is a clock addict.
He seems like a nice chap..
I think I'm only running eleven chimers at the moment.
Mmm, a quick count up...
I have five more here that could be running - so sixteen.
One in Eccleshall.
Six in the house in Ireland.
Two in other houses over there.
One in the pub.
I think that's it..
The actual item, running in.
Six days running now and just chimed within five seconds of the pips.
Five seconds? Must try harder.
The clock was still running after ten days, just over a minute slow, most of that happening in the last couple of days. The chimes gave up around the start of the ninth day. All in all, it seems to be quite good as it stands.
Clock, in bits for some lubrication.
All back together now and running nicely again.
The Shaw Trust Charity Shop (opposite Wickes) has signs in the window saying its closing down & everything must go at £1.00 each....
Just purchased next years xmas wrapping paper from wilko, everything 75% off.
Hope you remember where you've put it come Christmas and don't end up buying more
