    i got my second nsd today by cunningly going out with not a penny on me.otherwise i know i would have stopped to buy a water ice or ice cream.mind you that would have been part of my grocery budget,so an nsd.money is very,very tight this month,so i'm going to have to be very good.saving to pennies where i can.

    btw i can't be bothered just now with capital letters.hope nobody minds.

    i do have a bill to pay tomorrow,but i don't count bills as spends (they're essential therefore allowed in my books).i do hope to have an nsd weekend.

    anyone else?

    have a super weekend,whatever you've got planned!

    I'm off the starting blocks at last with NSD number 1 today!

    (No thank you, Igor, I went off the Olde Fartinge Bishop Ale when I found out just where you have been brewing it. No wonder the toilet in the third floor bathroom has been looking extra sparkly lately....)
