    I have 1 nsd.
    for yesterday. It was our first year anniversary together and just stayed home to spend time with each other. I got him some gifts and he had trouble finding me some gifts as he wanted to make it special but felt like there was just everyday stuff... so he's taking me out for a really nice meal somewhere in the next few months.

    I Started this challenge on the 5th as that's when I get paid.

    The job is going GREAT thank you Marmite! I love it but am surrounded by food and bargains! (I've put on a half a stone in 4 months and have spent so much on YS food i never eat!....hence why I'm here again!)
    but I do enjoy not getting up at 2.30 am every day!

    How on earth can we build up our emergency savings stash when Somebody keeps squandering our hard-earned dosh on cucumbers???? I told you before, Igor, if you insist on dishing up pilchard margharitas then keep the garnishes cheap and cheerful....a frozen pea on a cocktail stick is enough.

    no igor that is not a veiled critisism of your short stature /your cooking skills/your unmentionables...talking of which,what is your mankini doing halfway up the flagpole...?
