    Since breaking my wrist 3 weeks ago I've struggled to get any NSDs (lack of ability to cook means several purchases of ready meals, and ban from driving while I have a cast means several days of spends on bus and/or train fares).

    As I'm still looking at another 3 weeks minimum (possibly 5) with the cast and also have a week away with young children in August, I'm going to set myself a lower than normal target.

    So sign me up for 10 NSDs please :)

    After my success in July (with 2 days to go) I'm hoping to continue my days of no spending. We've got a week's holiday to Austria this month (paid for over several months) so I'm going to aim for 10 NSDs again :-) when I'm back at school in September I'll up my target!
    NSDs January - 3/8 2017 total - 3

    Was planning to head out to Spain on 10th September for 8 weeks. I should be out of the cast by them, but the wrist will still be weak. As such I've decided that slinging a 15kg backpack around at that stage is too much of a gamble/risk, so I've postponed until next year. Now I just need to decide whether to head out April/May (start date would depend on whether I get a place in the London Marathon or not), or wait until September and do it at the time of year I'd originally planned on.

  • Can I join with a target of 15 SFDs and 5 in a row please. I am in the process of changing all my direct debits to come out on the same day of the month so hopefully it will be more!

    Thank you.

    That's a relief that you can postpone it.

    It's a silly question maybe,but does that mean that it's already paid for?
