Hi Mouche! Great to see you back. Sorry to hear about your OH - hope he's better now.


Thanks for your kind comments; I think the truth is more that I am completely disorganised and a terrible cook so tend to be the one who buys food for people!


Glad you're back - I think my spending will be kept in check now; you're very influential!

I've been thinking a lot about my last post and have been trying to learn how to cook the basics! DH is finding it all very amusing.


We also made £50 at a table top sale on Saturday morning which will help a bit with the grocery bill this week and nice to have a good clear out too. Yesterday, we used some loyalty card points to go to the cinema for the first time as a family and yet more loyalty points to get a pizza - very rare for us to do that and a nice feeling to "earn" it rather than pay for it!

Feeling very skint at the moment - not sure why. Have sold some furniture and other bits and bobs and made about £30. Will venture out to the shed over the weekend to see if there's anything else we can sell - a romantic Valentine's weekend!






Very excited to see Martin MSE get his much-deserved OBE today! Congratulations Martin - I am just one of thousands, if not millions, of people who has benefited from your wisdom. Thank you!
