Have already started my March budget as I did my big once a month supermarket shop this evening and spent nearly half my budget! Never mind - the freezer is full and as it's Lent there won't be any alcohol or chocolate to buy!
Nearly had a fit though when I finished shopping as I phoned DH to remind him to put the shepherd's pie I had had prepared in the oven and switch on the pan with the swede I had prepared this morning only for him to say - oh I've already put it in the oven at 5-o-clock (this was at 6.20 pm!) I was so cross - how could he be so stupid? We had discussed the timings before I left for work this morning (he works from home)and he was supposed to take it out of the fridge at 5 and wait for me to call when I left the supermarket to to tell him to put it in the oven. I had visions of it being burnt to a cinder and I was so hungry! Fortunately, I had covered the dish with foil and he didn't take this off before putting it in the oven so the top didn't burn, just the bottom! It was edible -just. Why don't men listen? And he never cooks - even though I work full time i still do all the shopping, cooking and most of the chores -my own fault I know as I spoilt him when we were first married. Sorry rant over - steam is still coming out of my ears though!
Off for a soak in along hot bath!
