    Not a NSD today as I booked a holiday for next year and paid a deposit. At least I can plan ahead and get the rest paid off in good time. I should be able to get a few more NSDs in this week, and I had some success with a vegetarian curry tonight - must add it to the list of meat free recipes.

    Nargleblast -Be careful - rumour has it that the local plod have a competition every month for the most arrests, and this month's chosen offence is...Being Drunk In Charge of a Wheelchair. Best stick to the orange squash for this month!
    To be fair, my driving skills leave a lot to be desired, and I often think I could probably be arrested for being 'drunk in charge of a wheelchair' without any alcohol in my system!

    Marmiterulesok -Don't worry incywincy I'm good friends with Insector Swindle of The Yard, so just go ahead and loosen your stays!I'll have a whisper in his ear ;-)
    Metaphorically speaking of course.I just pray that Hubert is out of earshot....Hubert, don't loosen anything......
    Ah, it's good to know that we have people with connections on this board I'm often told it's who you know not what you know that's important... so going ahead with the drink trusting you'll be having a word for me should I need it (and with my driving skills -or rather, lack of - that's a very likely scenario!)

    Only one day of spending since June began... I knew this awful weather was good for something!
    Total NSDs so far 6

    Sounds like a yummy curry btw.

    Today's plans to go to town cancelled due to filthy weather, so another NSD in the kitty makes 4 for me!

    Today's dinner will be home made shepherd's pie. Not made from Igor's recipe, though, I did read it but the first line put me off (" Peel two fresh, ripe shepherds.")

    Hello all!

    Just stopping by to declare NSD 3 for yesterday.

    No chance of one today as stayed up far too late watching all the election shenanigans and as a result got up late, missed bus and ended up forking out for a taxi to work, grr!

    Here's to a frugal weekend!

    Overdraft 2000/Cleared MBNA Closed

    The taxi trip could be considered an emergency spend, therefore allowed.....?Depends on how flexible you are.

    Awesome going with the NSDs

    I've managed 10 NSDs so far this month, but I think today might be a spendy..........

    I'm not doing great this month

    As my mental health deteriorates my spending goes up and up.

    It's just silly things like getting the bus to the station to catch my work train because I am too tired to walk.

    The worse thing is I do not have a single penny to my name left this month, so any money I do spend isn't mine, it's money I've borrowed off my OH or from the food budget wallet.

    I will try and get on with the challenge.
