    Igor! Get the lady a coffee! And get me one too while you're at it, I am so exhausted blowing most of my salary on frivolous things like food and petrol that I need to have a little lie-down....'

    No,your toothpaste glass is not really a good substitute either.

    Hi mobo1980,and welcome back!:hello:
    I remember you.Igor has asked if he can rifle through your kitchen and take some of your cups?!:(

    I'll sign you both up later today.Kitty has an appt. at the vet's (non-urgent) and I have prise her from her basket and into the carrier.I think she already suspects something.

    Marmite you are SO organised getting this up and running already

    :hello: Hi all!

    Back again. After just missing target in July, I have thought long & hard about August. It is a tough month for me anyway with lots of things to pay for (car stuff ALL due...boo!) AND starting off badly as just discovered OH has overspent A LOT! AND we have a week off AND a few events to go to.

    SO

    I'm still going to count all 'movable' spends in an effort to not spend unnecessarily during our week off. If I allow one spend day per week for food & petrol plus 1 more for a big shop, 3 for car stuff (3 lots of car stuff so 3 days), 3 for planned 'events'....that seems generous...

    But that still leaves 20 days that theoretically are NSD's?! I'm sure it should be less than that...

    ok...well I tried...

    I'll go for 20 NSD'sagain please Marmite!!!

    And I'm going to stick with a 5-in-a-row target

    BRING IT ON AUGUST!!!
