    A NSD for me, woo! Although I had to pay out for trains for a series of work seminars, but will get that back on Payday so not including here.

    Does mean I will be squeezing the budget until payday though....

    Update so far....

    Sun - NSD - tick :)
    Mon - Locks (hopefully!) £20 - money already safely stored in piggy waiting to get paid out - locks done but money still in piggy as there's a wee bit still to be done :)
    Tue - £5 (think I'll need to contribute to a sick colleague's flowers) £4.65 spent (£4 for flowers and 65p for chocolate to get the change to pay for the flowers....35p in savings pot :D)
    Wed - NSD - tick :)

    And for the rest of the week....

    Thu - £25 - no longer working away as planned but probably need petrol either Thursday or Friday.....so leaving planned spend at £25 for petrol instead of train fare and night out.
    Fri - [STRIKE]£3.50 - train fare while working away[/STRIKE] - hoping for NSD as no longer working away ;)
    Sat - £40 for haircut and £10 for bits and pieces for DD's wee birthday party

    ETO - hope you're enjoying being off work :j
