    Managed to spend £7.40 yesterday at dancing as opposed to the planned £3.60- turned out I had to pay for last weeks dancing as I had forgot to pay last week then bought a slush. This takes my total to £50.07/£58.00 - still within budget!

    After a good start, my week went horribly wrong spend-wise :o.

    Sun - NSD
    Mon - NSD
    Tues - £4.90 - coffee
    Weds - £7.65 coffee & lunch
    Thurs - £16.17 lunch with friends
    Friday - NSD
    Sat - £53.50 - unexpected 'going away' lunch for friends

    So, I ended up in the red this week, spending £82.22/£40 :eek:.

    I need to get back on track. Hopefully there won't be any major surprises next week!

    See you on the next thread and thanks ETO :).
