Here is something to think about when shopping at Woolies and Coles....

Wow I am so behind in everything at the moment.  I haven't done a diet update in quite a few days.  I promise I will do a big update on Monday.  I have been so busy this last week.  Tuesday I went to Mr11's school excursion and then Wednesday - Friday I was at Hubby's work helping him do his stocktake.....he is a 1 man band at work and with a whole warehouse to get counted he needed an extra pair of hands.  Therefore, my poor blog along with my house, has been sadly neglected.  I am happy to say though, that apart from missing one ay of exercise we have been sticking to our diet with pleasing results.

Anyway I need to go and get some housework done, 4 days of neglect has seen every corner fill with dust bunnies and the clutter on bench tops is out of control......not to mention the cleanliness of bathrooms and my ironing/folding pile.  Sheesh I try to do minimal housework on weekends but it looks like this weekend is going to be different.

I will leave you with this snippet of just how big Coles and Woolies actually are in Australia.  It makes me more determined to support the locals and try to reduce our reliance on supermarkets altogether (easier said than done when you don't have a big garden but we will do what we can lol).

Scary stuff huh!!!

It is amazing how those dust bunnies sneak in, eh? I am tackling them this weekend too - I was out of vacuum cleaner bags (good excuse!) for several days. Now I've stocked up so there is no excuse.

Great video about Woolworths/Coles - who knew? I'd love to buy local produce here but we don't really have a regular farmers market. I do know that the smaller, locally owned Foodland has better produce than Woolies so I try to buy there.

Have a good, productive weekend,
