What a farce

Well my new power lead arrived for my laptop and it still doesn't work,  so the only thing it can be now is the power socket in the side. I'm not going to waste anymore money on it at the moment but as its only 2.5 years old I'll look around for a repair shop. 

In the mean time, I've dragged out my very old Acer laptop that the keyboard is Kaput on and bought a plug in keyboard to attach. And after 3 hours of updates it works perfectly, even if it is a little cumbersome.  Hubby has offered to buy me a new laptop for Christmas but I will look to get my HP one mended. 


I bought 2 Daily Mails on Saturday  9th for the Lidl £10 off voucher inside. I used one straight away spending £40.44 (Cost £30.44).  The next one will be spent on Thursday 14th but will be logged against next months budget as it will have quite a bit of Christmas food on it. I won't be going overboard but there will be a turkey crown and some long date cheeses. I'm determined to spend my normal budget for December leaving a little in the kitty to pick up some yellow sticker goodies. 



I did a Boots Sale online shop earlier this month but first I loaded my advantage card offer of spend £20 get 400 points. Its really worth having a look at their deals, don't forget to log any offers against your Advantage card. I bought:


Baby set £10 (£4 in sale)
3 Lynx sets £5 (£2.80 in sale)
Unicorn gift set £6(£4.50 in sale)
Champney nail set ££5 (£3.33)         

Cost £31.80 Discount cost £20.23 saving £11.57  plus £4 of points on my card.  Piggy backing offers does really give you a BARGAIN!  My month ends today. So I'll have a tot up and see how the budget went. Bye hor now. Tx

  1. What a pain it is when technology goes wrong.
    What a good idea with the newspapers, you are a very savvy shopper.

  2. Best of luck with the HP. Technology is designed to be replaced, so I hope there is a fix for you.

    1. I'll carry on with the Acer until I'm happy with the price of a fix. Or I get an absolute bargain of a replacement. The Acer is 10 years old and works apart from the keyboard.

  3. Have you thought of taking your laptop into PC World/Currys. The tech guys there do a complete computer overhaul and update for around £50, well worth it if it solves the problem. We use them for all our computer woes.

    Buying two newspapers was a brilliant idea, getting £20 worth of free shopping is not to be sniffed at.

    1. £18 because I had to pay for the papers but still worth it. The one thing that bugs me about /PC Currys is the hard sell. I'll try a local chap who has fantastic reviews.

    2. The guys at our local branch in Llandudno don't do any hard sell, in fact they hide behind the runs of shelving so if you actually want something you have to go and find them … they do have the good grace to apologise once you manage to catch them ;-)

  4. But did you have to actually read the papers? I don't think I have ever even opened a Daily Mail, Daily Express or a Sun let alone brought one? Still you have loads of paper for all those dirty household jobs that need paper for a long time! LOL We got a reconditioned PC from Amazon the other day for £100 delivered with all the latest Windows software already loaded. It works really well.

    1. I did do all the puzzles and crosswords which were great. I think it needs a new mains socket in the side of the laptop. I'll take it locally first and they can give me feed back.

  5. I completely forgot about the Lidl newspaper vouchers, I hope they do it again. You're doing fantastically well with discount shopping. I hate it when my laptop or phone go wrong, always have to ask for help.

    1. We rely on technology so much these days. Everything to do with selling the house arrived by email now.

  6. That would be a lovely Christmas present but I hope you manage to get the one you've got sorted out.

    You did really well with the Boots shopping. I bought some perfume in there yesterday and she said it was in the Black Friday sale - which made me smile as it was only Wednesday! I'm sure you'll be pleased with how the month went when you've crunched all your numbers. You always seem so on top of things. xx

    1. Writing stuff down really help and checking the cupboards before I go shopping.

  7. I seem to go through computers like crazy. They just stop working for me and sometimes the repairs are just not worth it. Hope you can get yours fixed.

    You managed some really good deals with your shopping.

    God bless.
