About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

Spot the Difference

Well done Tesco!

How to increase the price by stealth.

A price increase of 11.1% (if you buy in pairs)at the 'offer' price of 2 for £2 by reducing the weight from 1000ml to 900ml. Interestingly the new 900ml pack is dimensionally bigger!

You should put that on twitter under the heading Tesco Rip off.

There are so many offers in Tesco ! I have noticed a lot of higher prices when buying the larger size. 4 cans of Bombardier work out less per litre than a 12 pack. Do they think people are stupid or just too busy to look at prices?

You need a computer to get best value! The Best Mate bought small jars of Colmans Mustard yesterday because they were better price than the larger jars.

We are seriously considering stopping shopping at Tesco. The only way to get chicken at a fair price is to buy three at a time. (We don't have the freezer space to do that.)
