Ikea & Yankee Candle

I had a lovely Saturday morning today.

First I went to Ikea and met Enid.  Ikea had loads of stuff on sale so we had a nice time just browsing.  My big(!) purchase was a set of 3 scissors for €1.20!

Afterwards I headed to the Blanchardstown Towncentre to buy food for dinner tonight - in Marks & Spencers.

On my way to M&S I popped into the Yankee Candle shop. 

I love Yankee Candles.  They have 5 new scents - my favourites of them were Paradise Spice and A Child's Wish.  I then had a good sniff of all the candles in the shop. One in particular was so nice it actually made me automatically break into a huge SMILE - Country Lemonade.  Try it next time you are in a Yankee Candle store.

I then continued on to M&S.  I am having Dad over for dinner tonight and I had promised him steak.  I was looking for flatiron steak but they were out of stock.  So then I was trying to decide between striploin, sirloin and fillet.  The fillet was the nicest but it was working out very expensive.  But then I noticed the Dine in for 2 offer (Main, side, dessert & btl of wine for €12.50) was on and rump steak was included in the offer.

So basically for the price of 4 fillets, I got 4 rumps, 2 sides, 2 desserts & 2 bottles of wine.  You can't argue with that. 

See my receipt below.  I got €55.27 worth of food for €27.89!
