    Thank you Skinty. It is payday finally, hurrah. £250 has gone to savings. The credit card bill for this month and next month is taken care of. It is raining gently today. The lawn is looking much better. Today I am hoping to sort the wires at back of the tv and clean sink in kitchen. Upstairs is looking very minimalist. I like it.

    Yaaay payday! The lawn will soon settle in with the natural rainfall. Go minimalist!

    Hurrah after all my bills are paid (that includes the OPs and saving) I have £180 for food and fun. That is fine I think as I have lots of dried food in and just need veg and fruit for rest of the month.

    Well the vacuum bags for the clothes were smaller than the other set so I had to spend £8.75 on some more!!! lol.

    It’s so annoying when that happens. I bought some L’Oreal elvive shampoo from morresons £1.50 for what I thought was a good price and when it arrived it was one of those tiny little holiday bottles 😂 50ml. That’ll teach me to check the size / weight !

    I'm hoping the new ones come soon so I can finish decluttering the wardrobes for the winter. Yesterday I bought a garden present for £30 for a friend. Today was a loong work day. I just mowed the grass and now it is raining gently.

    Plenty of time to finish sorting through everything and your lawn will be lush very soon.
