    Work was ok. Only one day left and then I have a week off. Cannot wait. However it is going to rain for most of next week I think!!!! I would like to declutter a bit more in the garage, try to think about other things than work, and that's it really.

    Today i spent £0.20 at work. That's me, last of the big spenders.

    Things I would like to buy providing my job is safe and still exists in September
    a new chest of drawers to replace my v old dressing table, some slippers. I am going to continue to save as the same thing will happen the year after if I make it through this year. We have had this for 7 years now.

    Parents have come to visit. We had a ball and went to the beach yesterday once the weather improved. I did a small grocery shop yesterday of £10. We are going shopping today. I haven't much money but will be spending on my credit card. Am hoping the weather will stay nice.

    Sounds like you had a lovely day at the beach :) I have mis-judged food needed till payday on Wednesday and will have to put it on my credit card. I will make a list and walk to co-op later, hopefully I will not get carried away and buy things not necessary !

    We have been to every beach in the south it feels. I am shattered from all the walking along the beach. I had a reunion with my brother (who was really aggressive in the past so we cut off contact with each other) he seems really nice now and all the aggression has gone. We all had such a laugh and they have just gone. I am shattered. I need a holiday from the holiday.

    I have only spent about £80 and gave £50 to dad for Father's Day - he will discover it in his suitcase when he gets home. lol.

    I hope I have spending money for the month. I think so. I will check later.

    Hello my lovely, it is sooooo hot here. I tidied for a bit then fell asleep. Just about to nip out to sort out pin on my new bank card then I am going to do some ironing outside with the radio on!!!

    I bought £18 varnish stuff for my patio table as I had run out of it.

    Ok:o so I had a bad moment..... and bought a Karen Millen coat at a bargain price of £40 including postage. I will not buy any more clothes. :o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o

    It was a reward for ironing half my clothes in the hot weather:rotfl::rotfl:
