As its school summer hols, I've dumped the kids and missus off at my sisters house in the Cotswolds for the week and arrived last night.
Today, we went into Cheltenham for a spot of shopping. In the last week, I've had pretty much the whole of the downstairs ceilings skimmed and bought the tiles to get someone to lay in the Living Room and Dining Room. I decided to extend it to the Hallway and so needed another 4 m sq and went into B&Q where I'd bought them. They already were a bargain at £15 a box of 600mm x600mm porcelein marbled tiles (3 in a box) - especially with the 20% Kingfisher discount I have. Today... they have a sale on - and these tiles have been reduced to £9.98 per box! (So £8 with my discount!) So I managed to get the price amended for the 44 boxes being delivered on Monday and added a further 22 boxes for the Hallway and Kitchen... A bargain! Shame the tiler is charging £25 per metre to lay!
And While I was there, I also bought a fire surround (same 20% + 20% scenario) and also noticed a gas fire reduced for £299. to £199, to £150 then lastly to £75! And when I got to the till.... it still got the 20% + 20% discount! A decent gas fire for £48!
So leaving B&Q headed into town. It pee'd down with rain and whilst waiting for it to let up, nipped into Greggs for a sausage roll for all. Opposite is Primark..... and amusingly spotted Richard Hammond coming out with a primark bag! Tight old hamster!
And then passing "French Connection", in front of the female manaken writen on the window was "Came.... the woman said". WTF is that all about!
Then we come home with the shopping bargains and jumped with joy at yet another away win at Stoke.
Cool Story Bro
Nice One Guv
