    The Happy Savings Fund 18th Feb 15 at 6:31 PM
    I am going to copy over all my posts about my new kitchen or lack of it!!!!

    I am changing my thread name back to a more saving focussed one so I don't get distracted.

    Addendum: I have changed the name again as I am planning to chill out now I have savings and am going to continue to save for happy times. lol.

    Hello to be honest the food was so pants lodger and I had half of it and put rest in the bin. What a waste of £21 from my birthday fund.

    I was supposed to go for a blood test but my sugars were too high. This was caused by eating chocolate. Today I am going to do something positive and ask lodger to bring cross dresser into kitchen that way I can work on getting thin. I am hoping the endorphins from this will help my depression rather than me constantly sinking into an abyss of comfort food.

    Also I will go to pharmacy and buy some eye ointment for an eye infection. Then I have plenty of work to do.

    On the positive side I haven't spent any money today. I spent most of the day resting. I did a bit of work and tidied. I was ill today and that coupled with thinking about my job made my depression worse.

    My lodger is the opposite he says he doesn't let himself get down. He has been out once with his friends and has picked up a girlfriend already and is spending his second night with her. I can't believe how fast he is!!! It's quite funny in a way.

    I'm having a hair cut tomorrow and also I might jump on the cross dresser for a bit (as he kindly moved it out of the garage into the kitchen for me). What else can I do to snap out of it?

    May I ask what are you calling a cross dresser?... Surely you don't have a man dressed like a woman in your kitchen?

    A cross trainer, maybe?

    Yes a cross trainer but a cross dresser sounds much more fun.

    I could ask lodger to wear a dress though. Wonder if he will do it if I reduce the rent???????

    We went to London on Saturday. Winter Wonderland was interesting and we did plenty of walking, then Harrods. We had a few nice meals. Total spend £100 but we had so much fun.

    Today I have been recovering and doing washing but unlike Skint Again I have been unMSE and been using the dryer like crazy.
