    Going for my first today-I'm at voluntary job for a long afternoon shift and Husband is having a retinopathy this afternoon so no driving anywhere.... Thinking that should slow me down a little!

    Can I join please? It's been a while since I've done this but I really want to get back on board!

    I'm going to aim for a cautious 10 NSDs this month, which I know is quite tame but there's a lot going on this month and I don't want to end up overwhelming myself. I'm hoping my spendy days will be sensible / required purchases, this thread always keeps me in the right frame of mind!

    Morning! I'm going to aim for 20 NSDs this September - every Mon-Thurs and at least 1 day every weekend.
    My biggest weakness is unplanned spending in Sainsbury's when I'm on my commute. I popped in on my way to the train station just now to buy a card for my colleague and ended up spending £16.79 on treats for my new team! It's going to have to come out of my 'socialising pot' for now but I need to reign this in!
    Hope everyone else has a good start to the month :-)

    Could I join in please for 15 NSDs this month? Have tried this challenge a few times before but have always failed. I'm back at work now having come of maternity leave so finding it easier to have NSDs.

    thank you!

    oh and i might not update the front page every day,but if your post has been thanked then i've noted your new nsd total and will update the front page at some point.

    also,i can't be bothered with capitals just now....

    now,igor (our sous chef,barman,mankini enthusiast and wearer of lederhosen) is taking drink orders for tonight's knees up.are you game for a pilchard margarita or five or would you prefer tea,care of mrs doyle?

    Well half way through day 1, the kids were begging me to go to soft play, we're at the park instead! Tea planned with a fridge raid and potatoes from the garden. Think day 1 is in the bag!

    I have my first NSD in the bag!

    marmite - please tell me that Igor is not planning to wear his lederhosen to the September NSD thread launch party??? You know what that means....he's booked that well-known German Oompah band to provide the music, think they're called Die Guten Alten Jungen.....
