No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

However it does take a bit of care, take frozen chips as a case in point. 89p for 2 kilos in Morrisons, 3% fat, no other added ingredients, it's a "healthy" starch for 44p a kilo. White rice is 40p for a kilo, again low fat.
Minced Welsh Lean beef in Waitrose £18 a kilo, 17% fat.
With "Fresh" potatoes going up starkly in price (60p a kilo versus 28p a year ago) you do have to budget with some sence.

Berry, I am quite distressed reading your post, my daughter gets vouchers for her kids which she redeems for fruit and veg onl and I think she gets milk tokens too, are you not eligible for this kind of thing? it seems really awful that in this day and age, people are struggling so hard to afford to eat properly. Seems to be the people who need the most help never get it, after reading about these people who come to the UK and milk to benefits system by inventing a 100 children and buying property with the proceeds and all the prescription medicines they are getting and flogging as well.
I wish you well with your business xx Lyn
