    Bargain boast.

    We got a load of meat from there a few weeks ago when they had some special offers on, nearly filling our freezer. The chicken breasts are huge as well. Considerably bigger than what you usually get in supermarkets. The sirloin steaks were probably the best bargain, 10 steaks for £20

    Worst Pot Holes in Stafford.

    When we bought our previous house on Saxonfields, I'm sure there was something in the purchase docs prohibiting the storage of boats on top of the garage...the property that we were buying had an integral garage

    What's for dinner/tea?

    Was particularly chuffed with my cooking efforts for Mother’s Day. Beef Wellington, dauphinois potatoes, swede & carrot mash, sweetheart cabbage & broccoli, followed by apple crumble and washed down with a couple of bottles of Campo Viejo Tempranillo. Scrummy. Bonus in that we’ve got enough...

    Salary negotiations

    I’ve always avoided talking about salary in interviews and waited until they’ve come back with an offer. That’s usually happened via a recruiter so it’s feels different negotiating via a third party. At that point the company have also made it clear they want me for the role so I’m in a far...

    Talk to me about... Energy Tariffs.

    Once your deal ends I suspect you will move to the price cap rate. At the moment the price cap rate is cheaper than any of the fixed or variable rate deals on offer so the advice would probably still be to stay where you are unless you really have to move. Martin Lewis explained this well in...

I always make...

    I was warned a small lump might be a poss side effect when I had my Pfizer jab this week and not to panic if I noticed one. Fortunately the only side effect I suffered was a slightly sore arm for a day

    I've always been of the opinion that it's someone productivity and output that should be measured and not for how long they have sat in a chair. If someone can do their job it shouldn't matter to me as their employer/manager where they are when they do it. That also applies to being flexible to...

    Floor tile restoration

    Does anyone have any recommendations for companies that can repair and restore Minton tiled floors? I’ve been able to find companies that do cleaning services but not repairs. Some of the tiles in our hall at the bottom of the stairs have become cracked and chipped due to the floor being...

    Stafford Traffic.

    Yep, we’re flooded again. Fortunately not as much damage as last time. The irony is we were due to meet with the Environment Agency at the end of the month to plan our flood defences/prevention strategy
