    I'm thrilled that I did it! I even found 2p on the floor so I've actually made money 😊

    :hello: Hi there all NSDers

    <<Walks in slapping thighs and doing other such Oktoberfesty things...
    including.........:beer::beer::beer:

    Oh dear I remember, or don't remember rather my first experience of an Oktoberfest back in the 80s:o

    I ended up falling down stairs to the metro and being taken to hospital (or rather; I don't remember but was told the next morning by someone who was with me) I'd argued with police, nearly got us all arrested then fell down the stairs...............The police allegedly had enough of me and just wandered off after calling an ambulance. Apparently I was in with the doctor for ages and no one knew what had been said as I was speaking to the doctor in German- I don't speak German I said 'Well you did last night' I was told:eek:. I had done the language for O levels years before but hey..............apparently it all comes back when you're p****d:eek:

    Anyway..............enough of memory lane; not being a drinker anymore at least I can't embarrass anyone nowadays; or get any of us arrested............I shall leave that to Igor ;)

    Right, what did I come in here for. Ahhh that's right, to declare NSD number 1 :j A good start to the month for me :)

    NSD #1 for me. Only petrol purchased which is now an allowed spend, especially as the petrol light came on yesterday. No other spends which has got to be the first day in ages that I haven't spent. :D

    I hope no one minds, but I start my month on pay day (25th of each month) which helps me keep track better... so at a week in I'm on 4 No Spend days so far :)

    Was aiming for 7 for the whole month (my first month keeping count)... after this start I'm expecting to smash that. Going to have a second target of 14 after that (A whole fortnight spend free :D ).

    Aiming for another one today, but not promising!

    Erm I handed them over last month ... well I handed them to Hubert to pass to Igor as I was in a hurry, surely he wouldn't have .... nah :eek:

    Well...you know how Hubert wants anything that Igor has....I must admit that they look good on Hubert,if you ignore the fact that they're 10 sizes too small. :eek::eek:

    Since Igor's lederhosen did not withstand being fumigated again,I'm afraid that the only option left is a frilly dress,dirndl style. :eek::eek:
    Do we have a colour that will go with his eyes?Yes,bloodshot...

    Igor,don't give me that look.It's not my fault that your antique lederhosen have given up and died.I told you not to boil wash them along with last weeks curried sprouts....:eek::eek: No,they really didn't add anything to the flavour....


    Well,I'm back to announce #1,as I'm pretty confident,and this'll seal the deal. :D

    Famous last words....I went into town to pay my bills (an allowed spend)and somehow found myself in 'h and m'.So,I found four great tops in the sales. :D
    Today will be my #1. ;)

    Vicky your method might not make much sense during the first couple of days of the month or so, but if it works for you then fine, you make your own rules in this challenge! It will work out in the end anyway because NSDs collected at the end of the month won't count till next month.

    Enjoy the challenge!

    That's fine with me.I'm pretty sure that you're going to beat that first total soon. :)
