    Morning all
    Not been in for a week, but having been getting my daily email so have seen how well everyone is doing

    Saturday and Sunday were NSDs #12 and #13 completing my 5 in a row target

    Monday i went to lidl with my 5 voucher and only went 2.19 over budget, but that was due to getting some reduced prawns as a treat.

    Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were NSDs #14 #15 #16
    NSDs 16/21

    Today Im off to asda to get a few bits on offer and pick up some flowers and chocolates for the old dears on Sunday.

    Plans for the weekend are tomorrow I'm at work, then Sunday we're in for the day (hopefully involving me not lifting a finger except cooking dinner). We're having one of our games tournaments and Im going to win this one after coming in 4th on the previous 2!

    Hope all the mums have a great day one Sunday and are spoil rotten.

    Have a good weekend all
