It's not as hot here today, but I've got the windows open to air my room and try and get rid of my germs! I'm lurgified, grr.
Plan for today is just to mooch around the house and do a bit of tidying. I've got a driving lesson from my dad tonight which I'm looking forward to The plan is to learn as much of the basics as I can from him so I don't need to pay for too many proper lessons.
Driving test went well! I even went round a (empty) roundabout
The budget has gotten away from me a bit this month- just lots of little things adding up to too much money! So I'm going to set myself some goals for next month
- 10 No Spend Days
- No top up shops in Sainsbury's (it's our closest shop and sometimes I'm lazy)- Asda and Aldi only!
- Make £100 through matched betting/ebay/surveys
- STICK TO THE YNAB
I hope the new pills work. It is sooo hot here. Am waiting for rain.
Have managed to add £50 to the Christmas fund and £70 to the car fund, which isn't loads but at least it's something! We've had a couple of biggish expenditures (new tent- baby loved her first camping trip!) which I've managed to budget for without dipping into savings so that's good too. Baby classes are SO expensive and I know she doesn't really need it but it seems to be the prime way mums socialise and I feel like getting out of the house and seeing people is good for my mental health so I'm just sucking it up and doing it.
Need to pick up my matched betting again but it's hard to find a time when baby isn't attached to me and something doesn't need to be done around the house!
Health-wise, my stomach problems are still a mystery. I've got an ultrasound next week as the doctor now thinks it might be gallstones.
