Deal of the Day!

As Peter Kay once said: Garlic Bread? Garlic… bread? Garlic? And bread? Am I hearing you right? Garlic bread?


But in this case they can’t get the spelling correct. 


Misleading signage on beans shocker!

To give them credit, buying any of the other products in the Discovery range in this offer at Sainsbury’s would make this deal worthwhile.

I wonder though, if you bought three tins of the refried beans, whether you’d be charged £4 or £2.85?

Butterflies and quearies?

Belated Christmas gifts are always amazing. This joyous piece of craft came from Denis Denis of the murder bathroom . It looks lovely, all glittery and sparkly and well, butterfly-y. When you open it though, there are about a billion pins. Apparently it is suitable for anyone over 36 months. I dread to think what might happen when a 37 month old gets hold of it (let alone a 38 year old…).

Bonus! When going to collect my amazing mystery parcel from the Post Office I also spotted this delightful typo in their brand new laminated signage all over the collection desks…

Catch him on a bad day and he’s still superb, catch him on a good day and woah, you won’t know what’s hit you. He is the most wonderful man I know. Don’t you forget it. With glitter on top.

New grammar pedant joins the army of ‘I saw this and thought of you’ providers

Mwah ha ha ha, I have unearthed another wordsmith out there.

Mr Howarth has well and truly outed himself as a grammar and spelling pedant by sending me this delight, taken on Northumberland Street, Newcastle. He’s straight in as part of the ‘I saw this and thought of you’ tag 🙂 Welcome!

And nice, he has a couple of blogs that I might just follow too.

The first, covers real ale, an area becoming increasingly of interest to me since I first attended the Keswick Beer Festival (back in 2005 I think) and discovered stout and green beer.

The second, is blog on news, social media and PR.
