Ok, so someone gave me a marrow. I am demonstrating the size of the thing by juxtaposing it with the glasses, which I didn't need to wear to see it.

an empty bread-stick packet, two empty egg boxes and a biscuit box
with a wrapper in. In the fridge was an empty grated cheese bag and a

easier and more cost effective to shop by the day and just buy the
basics like pasta, rice and sauces etc from Aldi? I've given up on a
meal plan. We all eat different things and sometimes we eat at
Do you know what? I don't really care. I hate unpacking it anyway,
I only eat vegetables and the dog eats the leftovers and the the
guinea pigs are eating the grass. I must be making a saving
