    THOUGHT I had a NSD. Even wrote it in big black letters in my money journal but actually forgot that I had to buy a £1 parking ticket at the doctors whilst getting tiny ones jabs done. So a low spend day. After a nice trip to the zsl whipsnade zoo as we are members : )hope you've all had successful no spend days!

    Yesterday and today make another two NSDs for the collection, so I am now on 8. I am a creature of the night at the moment (in the midst of a run of night shifts) so should clock up another tomorrow.....

    Realised we needed something for dinner yesterday and have ended up buying eggs today as I forgot we'd ran out, so low spend days but no nsd. Meeting friends to buy their bridesmaid dresses tommorow so will have to aim for my remaining NSD's on the days i m at work for the rest of the month i think.

    Evening all, how is everyone

    Well SUCCESS! I have not spent a penny since Wednesday thats 4NSDs in a row 14/20 NSDs
    Sadly i wont make 5 in a row as we're taking my mum shopping tomorrow. The kids have half term this week so will be tagging along, but i pack drinks and snacks and my mum buys us lunch in payment for taxi services I'm hoping to remember everything we need to the list and only require the one shopping trip this week. That way the kids don't get dragged around the shops repeatedly during their holidays.

    We've had our board game championship today and unfortunately i came last! OH takes it too seriously and won most of the games (whereas i try to lose). We've had a lovely roast turkey crown for dinner and have enough left over for a turkey madras on Tuesday and some for sandwiches too.

    Hope everyone has had a Great weekend
