    Just bought a couple of thing's today including a light bulb, they are so expensive!! anyway hopefully it will pay us back by being low wattage! so under £6.00 spent and 3p road kill yay! into the pot it went, still desperately trying to save for hollibobs next year just £900 to save eak!!

    Have made a lentil cottage pie this afternoon which will be good for tonight's dinner and DH can take left over for his lunch on Monday, It made quite a lot so the other half of the lentil mix in the tiny freezer for next week when the DS is not home as he dislikes lentils bless him, pleased I have finally found a use for the lentils as I bought them for use in a recipe last year and never used them, and they even moved house with us :rotfl:

    Washing on Airer and heating only been on for 2 hours today:j

  • £12.41 spend today for food, have decided to keep a check of it on here because me just popping to Tosco express in the week soon mounts up!
    Looking forward to pay day Friday and will also check the electric and gas used for this month as been told by the supplier they can not give us proper usage amount till we have been here 12 months!! crazy but will just keep an eye on it ourselves!
    New water meter was fitted Wednesday and we have used a unit already which in my reckoning will be 2 a week so 8 a month, so need to keep an eye on this one too!

    Wrapped a few more Christmas presents so that prying eyes don't see, not so many hiding places in this house!

    Hoping to keep in budget, anything left will go in overpayment pot! All other money accounted for, could do with earning a little so off to do survey's!
