Lovely Hubby wanted a sliced loaf at the weekend.  Things have been super busy here just recently and baking our own bread has been the last thing on my mind, and anyway I don't eat much bread during the week so I hadn't noticed that there was none at all in the freezer.

So while the car was in the garage getting a new bulb fitted we popped over to M&S to get a loaf.  Wanting to use my vouchers rather than cash meant I decided the '2 for £2.50' was quite a good deal and it meant we could have bought four loaves for a £5 voucher and tucked three of them into the freezer to save shopping trips like this one ... but a certain gentleman decided that a packet of Viennese Whirls was much more important than excess bread, so we went down that route and used a £4 voucher along with 20p in cash  ;-)

I didn't throw my receipt away and then fish it out of the bin .... it got very wet on the way back to the car.


  1. Sue, Are your Viennese cakes from the ambient or fridge section of M&S?
    We have a very large M&S Food recently opened near us but so far I haven't spotted the same boxes and I'm starting to get desperate now!
    Thanks :-)

    1. They are from the ambient section, near the other cakes and those tubs of flapjacks and cornflake cakes that they sell. Our branch only started selling these a few months ago, Lovely Hubby was in the same desperate state as you until then ;-)

    2. Thanks for letting me know, I shall probably pop across there tomorrow to look for them! Yum!
