    Bless you MF, I am packing only pyjamas and some walking clothes. After posting on Irene's thread I have decided to spend only on essentials this month as I have wasted plenty of money. I'm hoping the savings will bulk up my Christmas Fund which is pretty negligible right now.  I have saved £250, made the usual OP on mortgage.

    I will, I am only doing one of my subjects next week. I'm doing the minimum that I can.  I painted the entrance to my garden today on one side, the weather is glorious and I will do the other side when I return. My parents arrived safely and we are leaving tomorrow. I am hoping to have two walks a day for a week and hope that I will lose some weight as I feel like a blob with not going out after lockdown.

    Hello I got back yesterday and did plenty of gardening as I had been away for so long. lol. It was lovely to see people. I had forgotten how strange it is to be around others!!! Anyway we all had a great time. I started walking and realise that I love it!!! . On the positives though every time as I did walking it was free. I tried to buy gifts for parents and brother refused to let me and paid instead so I have come back with my spending money. We have had light rain today. Today I was a bit down as I realise I go back to work this week so I shall make the most of the next few days.
