    I know that's what i keep telling myself. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl: After all this I had better like it when it comes. Remember when i ordered the Diana von Furstenburg at a cheap price and it made me look fat????? Please let this look ok on me:o

    I have spent today ironing, washing more bedclothes and a tablecloth. Also i have texted many people who are selling bedroom drawers as i would like to swap my dressing table for another chest of drawers. I am deciding on one that is fairly local and hoping they get back to me asap as it would be great to be ready before i go back to work. I rang anyone that had a white drawer set available and it took ages. I am still waiting for some to reply. At four, i went to see some friends at a pub - i only spent £10 on drinks. I've just cancelled tomorrow's day out as i need to finish off my tidying of paperwork, mopping, hovering and 'work' work before more socials at the weekend.

    Weather has been glorious!!!!!!!!!!! yay. :)

    It is v humid here and hasn't rained yet but we are expecting it to sometime this afternoon. So far I have done all my 'work' work, made a curry, made one bed, planted one more petunia at the front of the house as the lavender are so small.

    I haven't spent any money yet.:j

    Did you have any replies about the bedroom drawers ?

    One has replied, it was the one that was too big and will fill up my bedroom so I decided against it. The smaller fleabay one I really want is on sale on Thursday when I am at work!!!!! but I will try to bid from home early so I get it. It is available from a seller 10 miles away and the builder can pick it up for me so I will be happy if I win the auction.

    I am half way through buying a gumtr*e tallboy that almost matches it for a bargain price of £15. I do love buying stuff for cheap. I wish I had always done this as I would have loads of savings by now

    The heat is really intense here. It still hasn't rained. I keep nodding off. I just have to vacuum one more room and then mop and I am done.

    Then tomorrow I will sort out my paperwork and meet friends for a meal in town. I hope it is cheap as my direct debits haven't gone out yet and I am not sure how much I have exactly. :j:

    One of the people I met yesterday mentioned she was made redundant with a terrible pay out 5 years before retirement. She has hardly any money now and regrets it. This is a lesson to me as with my health I know I probably wont be able to keep my job till I am 60. I keep thinking about renting out my spare bedroom and will take some photos of it over the hols. Any money from this will be my pension fund. I do hope it all works out.

    Good luck with your gumtree purchase & ebay hope you win it. Its a lovely day today here, enjoy your meal out with friends.


    Renting will be good income as long as you get a good clean considerate tenant.

    Hello my darlin' ♥

    Hope you have a lovely day out today

    We haven't had the thunderstorms or rain they promised yesterday or the other day, and we really need that rain

    Don't pay £100+ for those drawers :eek: You can buy new for that ;)
    I've been lazy as usual today, but will do some decluttering tonight
    :( Mr 3Dogs 3-7-12 :( 3Dogs'Mam 31-3-13 :(

    I won the bid for the chest of drawers including delivery it will cost £147!!!! but this is cheaper than the £180 in the shops. :D:D

    We went to see WonderWoman (not like the 1970s so I couldn't sing along to the theme tune which was a shame but like the comic book I think). Quite a few double entendres which were funny, quite ridiculous woman in swimming costume in the the Great War plot but a laugh nonetheless. Money spent including travel, food and present for friend was £56.00.:eek::eek:
