    Thanks, Missymoo  :).  I think the thing I struggle with regarding food shops is special offers.  I have to really think through - do I need this ice cream?  Yes its half price, but that's still £2 I wouldn't have spent in the original plan...  Also I really need to do some more baking so I have sweet treat ins to snack on.  I'm totally out right now, and when I peckish and craving something sweet is when resistance is lowest and I'm likely to run out to the shops for some chocolate or something.

    Ohhhh I’ve got really curly hair too, not sure I’m brave enough to cut it myself though!  I’m booked in to have mine cut in a couple of weeks x

    If it's just a trim it's really easy Happy Monday.  Anything else is more complicated 🤔. Mine is growing on me, it's maybe just a tad short for my liking but it'll grow back!
