Image result for waitrose hove

The other day we went to get the prescriptions and the system was down and they had to write them all by hand.
Last year the whole of Asda closed down because of a problem with the tills.
This is what happens in this techy world when the machines do not work and its infuriating if you are on the end of it.
Today, we were so pleased when the till stopped working in Waitrose cafe just as I was about to pay.
We decided that we would eat out and I ordered a large breakfast for Tom and Chicken,Bacon and Brie on flatbread for myself.
Because they could not process the money we had it on the house.
Tom then went up and asked if they could still do a coffee and they gave us two coffees on the house as well.
So, maybe this techy stuff isn't so bad after all. lol
Money saved means we can eat out another day. Whoopiee.


Meanwhile Rupert is slowly getting back to normal.  He had his post op check up and everything looks okay, he's just a bit tender I think as he looks as though he cannot get comfy sometimes but everything seems to be working.

He says thanks for your best wishes and would like to show you his scar.


  1. You lucky lady...Not just a treat but a free treat.

  2. yay for free food and that scar looks painful. glad he is doing better

  3. I'm glad you had a nice free lunch. however that incision looks bothersome for poor Rupert. Hoping the pumpkin puts an end to the hairball problem and wishing you all a good week.

  4. I love this picture of Rupert because it looks like he is meowing HI to us! He seems in good spirits! Be sure and brush him a lot! How fun that for once, a tech breakdown worked in your favor. A big free meal!!

  5. Yay for small gifts from the universe :) When power goes out here we either have to wait until it comes back on or leave without our purchases. Now, having said that, my purchases never included freshly made food, so perhaps they'd do the same as Waitrose.

    Poor Rupert; I hope he feels more comfortable soon. And I wish so hard that the pumpkin works.

  6. Poor Rupert--it took quite a slit in his tummy to get at that wad of fur! I do hope you can find a way to prevent more blockages--it is so heart-breaking when our pets are ill. [To say nothing of pricey!] What an unexpected treat to have a free meal.

  7. You've forgiven them after the last incident then

  8. Wow across the pond I got a free drink and that makes us alike 😁 glad Rupert is getting back to normal again hugs from Carollyn

  9. Well, it doesn't quite make up for all the stress you've had, but an unexpectedly free meal helps! Poor Rupert - I do hope the pumpkin will work for him. His scar looks a bit sore. I am sure he is happy to be back at home.
    Best wishes

  10. That's awesome that they gave you your meals free.
    So happy tohear Rupert is feeling better

  11. It's a shame that the till didn't go down at the vet's when you were paying for Rupert's fur ball removal! "Oh that's okay Mrs Cater, the operation's on us! After all, vets are not interested in money anyway! Would you also like a few white mice for your cats to snack on?"

  12. Great news to hear Rupert is feeling much better, that's one large scar:( Free breakfast and coffee wonderful. Haha I had to laugh at YP's comment:)

  13. I am glad there was recompense for the tills not working- hurrah for free brekkie! Rupert is looking good!x

  14. I sure hope Rupert does not have any more troubles...

  15. Oh free food always taste so much better!,Anything from a full meal to the last 4 green tomatoes in the garden..always puts a smile on my face,lol.Glad to see that Rupert is recovering.He looks like he is talking to you on that photo,bless him.xx

  16. What a beautiful cat...glad he is ok.

  17. What a wonderful and unexpected treat, good old Waitrose. Glad to see Rupert is feeling much better:)
