Regular readers know what a complete and utter tightwad I am, so this pork loin dish was perfect. Paying full price for anything brings me out in cold sweats and a rash - especially where food is concerned. I can be found stalking my local Sainsburys and Co-Op daily. They are an absolute treasure trove of reduced goodies and bargain basement deals, so much so I'm fairly sure they must make a loss on it - bothered loads. Anyhoo, last night was a real CBA affair when it came to cooking dinner. I was knackered from being in the cafe all day and taking on quite a lot of freelance work which I'm doing around busy periods, so my enthusiasm levels for cooking were running on fumes by the time I got home.

You’re probably a member of a Facebook buy, sell and swap group or page, if not, I’m sure you’ll have heard of them. They are something I always keep an eye on, whether I particularly need something or not, just in case there is a chance to grab a bargain to flip sell it and make a bit of profit. However, since moving into my apartment last November I’ve been on the lookout for bedroom furniture and a dining table. I missed out on an amazing table a few months ago because Sidney the Sony decided to switch himself off and I missed the guys message - a trait that old Sid is doing more and more. It was beautiful and since seeing it nothing has quite floated my boat in the same way, meaning I’ve been holding out.
