Something exciting to share - I filled in a BritMums form to be a MorrisonsMum - £80 in vouchers to spend for the bank holiday, and I was chosen.  Yes, I am the chosen one - does that make me Highlander or Buffy or something?  Well, not the chosen one exactly, more like one of the chosen fifty I think, but hey - I'll take validation wherever I find it!

So yesterday, I had some genuinely exciting post - have you ever wished your post now was as exciting as it was when you were a child?  How thrilled you were when you spotted your name on the front?  Sorry, I digress...Anyway, this post had a BritMums stamp on the back, and £80 in Morrisons vouchers inside!

Morrisons have launched a new thing this morning - I'm Cheaper.  They've cut prices on more than a thousand items, and the good bit is that they're staying down!  Everything that has been brought down will have a round yellow I'm Cheaper sticker, so should be pretty easy to spot.

So next, the fun part - spending the vouchers!  In my mind Morrisons is at the budget end of the supermarket spectrum anyway, so I'm looking forward to checking out what kind of things they've brought even further down.  The kids have worked together to write a list of things to buy - I bet you can imagine what that looks like!

Seems like lots of bloggers I know are MorrisonMums this weekend, so I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's posts, and how they've chosen to use their vouchers!  Although the easiest way to do this shop would be for Mr Manley and I to go over to Morrisons with a carefully composed shopping list while the three kids are in school, since it is quite exciting and kind of a one off we're all going to go after school tomorrow instead.  And now I have written my own list, mwah ha ha ha ha (evil laugh there, just in case that wasn't obvious)
So, watch this space...
