All Go


Welcome to a new follower Eileen.

We have been very busy again today, I have been busy sorting and putting more items up for sale this morning, we now have over 220 items for sale. 

We have also made a contact, someone from a bird club came and bought 20 of our Quail this morning and is looking to buy large quantities regularly and we have another buyer coming at the weekend, so it is really going very well, we might get a few new Quail so we can get more eggs and we are currently looking at more housing. My husband has been working/cleaning out and taking care of their needs all morning. 

I haven't spent much on shopping this week apart from the basics I just bought some bargain cheese. Asda where selling off the Christmas Cheese the 400g blocks where £1 each, and the box of 3 cheeses was 75p. I did see the next day the last few blocks they were selling for 50p, never mind, I was still happy with the £1. 

So it was cheese and crackers for lunch today.





I love pretty and vintage china, but I have decided rather than have a cupboard full of it, I shall sell some of it, better to have money in our pockets than sat on the shelf I think. Money making is the name of the game, But I am not parting with it all, I shall keep just a few pieces.

I never pay much for it. This is my latest purchase for 50p Royal Albert Country Roses.




Tonight's tea was totally free, we had a Domino's pizza each, this was a freebie from our phone company "Three" they have a rewards app called Wantu and ever Wednesday there are new offers, prize draws and sometimes freebies. Last year we had lots of free trips to the cinema, several free pizzas and chocolates from Hotel Chocolat.









Nothing tastes nicer than a freebie!

  1. My mum has the Royal Albert set in her cupboard - but has never used it to my knowledge. I like to have the pleasure of using my china - I stopped keeping things for best a long time ago.
    Pizzas look good and good bargain on the cheese - I might go and explore Asda one day - it is a bit further out from us but I keep seeing good bargains on other blogs.

    1. The Royal Albert Roses is quite a popular design, yes I like to use my china as well, I agree no point in keeping for best, might as well enjoy it daily.

  3. I'm a little envious of your cheese bargains. There haven't been any offers on Christmas stock at our supermarket. Free pizza must taste so much better. X

  5. ooh, I shall have to look in my Asda on Friday to see if they have any cheese reduced. Though I know that they won't. I never find the corking bargains.

    I do like that Royal Albert tea cup. I have a feeling I have one the same somewhere. I need to rootle through my china and use my tea cups. They are too pretty to be hidden away in cupboards. xx

  6. I had a Royal Albert 'Old country roses' tea set as a 21st birthday present. I do like to drink from a China cup and saucer. Well done on the quail sale. Sounds like the business is building.
    I'd have snapped up those cheeses. Our local Asda is not great for bargains; Tesco is better.

  9. I have an old country roses teapot. I paid a pound for it. The lid is stuck together with superglue but no one would ever know. The pizzas look so good. Free food tastes better :)

    1. £1 what a bargain, the dominos pizzas are nice, I wouldn't pay for one though as they are expensive, but I don't turn down a free one.

  10. Smashing bargains, Marlene, and really good news on the quail front :) Your teacup and saucer are really pretty and, I agree, lovely china (and glass) should be used xx

    1. Thankyou Angie, it is good news about the quail they are dear little birds and a pleasure to look after. We don't have any important events or entertain very much so it makes sense to use things rather than be left for display. xxx

  11. Cheeeeeese. Oh my goodness I love cheese. I have to limit myself though so it's a good job I haven't been to Asda and seen those reductions.

    1. I am not big eater, and when I do I prefer blue cheeses, but cheddar is so versatile.xx

  12. My goodness, what a bargain with the Country Roses. I managed to get some bargain cheese too, I am going to make a couple of quiches for the freezer to use some of it up.

  13. Well done on the bargain shop. We too kept quail for a time..we got loads of eggs. The veg guy on the boot sells eggs..I think they are a good seller. You've done well listing over 200 items.. Thought I had a lot on at over 50! I think eBay is picking up a bit..fingers crossed!

    1. Hi Vicky, thanks for stopping by, we tried to sell some eggs with no luck, we wish we started this venture a long time ago. Yes the listings and selling is going very well, 50 listings is good, because you work at the boot sales as well.
      Lovely to hear from you, xxx
