    Had two spends this week. Had my online delivery from Tesco on Tuesday night which came to £22.28. Then I popped into M&S for the Valentines meal (I am not counting that as that is part of our entertainment budget as we are not going out) but I bought a few extras so that's another £6.16. Total for this week so far is £31.39 so under my budget again as of today.

    Don't think I need anything else this week so fingers crossed. Had 3 NSD so far this week and should manage another two over the weekend.

  • I have updated sig had a shop at weekend but we had visitors so a bit more okay a lot more than we planned to spend.
    Got a sack pots yesterday 5.00
    made a weekly menu planner so lets see shopping tomorrow max 20.00
    But also our 1st anniversary Sunday so need things for romantic picnic hubby presenting me with diamand eternity ring and going down on one knee at our castle.
    So if I stick to shopping list this is doable.
    Good luck everyone:D

  • I would hate to take to take credit where it's not due it was actually peetzil39who posted the recipe and it sounds great will definitely be using it in the future.
    Was looking for a vanilla or plain butter frosting though so i could use food coloring to turn it red for Sunday if anyone else has any ideas.
    In fact could i just adapt that recipe and just drop out the coffee??

  • Hello everyone
    I've updated my siggy and need to do a big store cupboard shop tomorrow as we are running out of everything!!! So I'll be going to L!dl's to get most of it. Also need to buy DH a little something for Valentine Day - no idea what so hoping to be inspired when I shop.

    Keep up the good work everyone - although Feb is only 4 weeks it always seems to me to be the longest month of the year
