Well, I'm off to a disastrous start; I had to call an ambulance to OH early this morning, as he was doubled up with chest pains & having difficulty breathing. We spent a merry 6 hours in Coronary Care; luckily he apparently has the heart of a 21-year-old, but also has trapped a nerve in his spine. By this time I was late to get DS3 & all his goods & chattels back to uni (year 7, middle year of PhD, preparation time needed before starting back on Monday) so spent the next 4 hours sitting in traffic jams. Reeling home exhausted, I just couldn't face cooking, not to mention the fact that Friday is my food shopping day, and I've just thrown out vast quantities of food from my store-cupboard, so there wasn't much there to cook! So £25 has gone straight away on fish & chips, but I think I'm going to take it out of this month's entertainment budget, as I'm not anticipating needing that for anything else.
