    Not a NSD today - had to pick up some micro rice to go with my homemade chilli I batch cooked a while ago, and took out to defrost for lunch today.

    Picked up some wrapping paper for OH's birthday presents whilst I was there as it was already not a NSD,

    Simplicity last night was having my feet up on the sofa with tea and biscuits lol!

    Well done all of you on your NSD's so far :D

    Dolly! You have made the weekly email!

    I'm really pleased about that, thanks f0xh0les.

    Yesterday I took 2 large bags of DS's clothes to the CS, they are all really nice and you don't see a lot of teenage size clothing so I hope they sell well, there was also a large bag of socks and pj's etc for rag.

    Took the kids out yesterday, had a sandwich by the river with the ducks and a wander around town, I did spend but not hugely, I did buy some bits in the charity shops and was mercilessly bullied by my children. DD has been shortlisted for the job she went for along with two others, she is going in for an hours trial on Saturday and then they will decide.

    Washing is out on the line, I've been cycling and am now going to set a 1 hour timer on my phone and make chana masala for tea then charge around the house cleaning.

    Grateful for
    Cosy office to myself, listening to some nice tunes.

    NSD No 3

    Himself has gone out to meet his friends today (soft drinks only, he says) so I've had a day of proper cleaning. Living room and bedroom are looking very spruce. Also managed to get rid of a pile of magazines and some broken bits of wood, etc to the bin before he finds out. Gets collected tomorrow. Honestly even the magazines wouldn't have been any good to anyone as they were so old.

    Downloaded some free kindle books to take on holiday and I've added some books for Himself to my wish list. Will buy them one at a time for that day in December that we're not mentioning yet. We're not mentioning it, are we?

    Had the remainder of soup for my lunch and having a different kind from the freezer for dinner. I like soup!!!

    Well done on the mention in the email, Dolly
    Have adventures. laugh a lot and always be kind.

    First NSD achieved! I did request a part on back order from 1 company and order it for 24p cheaper from another, hope that hasn't ruined my NSD!

    Also picked up a £50 deposit for DH and claimed £8.85 from TCB.

    I forgot DH is late in tonight. Why his company's HR expect managers to do interviews after work I don't know?:mad: I was going to make SW pasties but have decided to do simple sausage and chips instead.

    Load of washing done and finally moved the cases from the dining room upstairs, 1 step closer to the loft!

  • Evening all. If I am not to late could I tag along with you all please, not been on MSE for about two years but feel I need grounding and always found reading this thread inspirational. My 30 year old son has got his self in a hell of a mess financially so I need to dig deep to help him out and can do that by reigning things in, using what we have and enjoying our home and family instead of chasing the next occasion or trend. Thanks for reading if you got this far lol :D

    A SFD for me. Went downstairs at about 1 0'clock to make some food (had crispbread for breakfast as no-one else was awake and I wasn't ready for the stairs). Brought the emptied bin in, took a book back to the library, brought 4 back, took small handfuls of rubbish to the bins.

    Dishwasher needs emptying so I can fill it again. Took 'everything I needed' (that would fit in the new small rucksack) as I intended waiting for the food delivery. Food came, dumped it into a succession of bags for life and tossed the packs of toilet rolls onto the couch. Put away the freezer stuff and decided that was it. Brought a 2l of decaff coke and a lemon yoghurt back with me (have nearly 2l of tap water already).

    Have been down since. As it's been raining on and off all day I took coat hangers down and hung up all my long dresses from over the door hooks so they will dry (and I will have something to wear).

    Walking slightly better but trying to keep weight off the left leg . Today I am grateful for DS3's walking cane, for taking things slowly (yummy yoghurt) and for time to think - need to slow things down and then proceed with care.
    My mission in life is not only to survive,but to thrive and to do so with some Passion, some Compassion, some Humour and some Style.
