    Day 1/18! Good luck all!
    Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

    Good start, day 1 done! :smile:

    Bit easy when you work all day... next few days will be the test.

    I've got to buy some stuff for my mum/other people so need to be careful not to put anything in my basket for me.

    Yesterday was not a NSD as I had to buy medication. Wish I had waited until Saturday. Today will also not be a NSD as I really must buy DD’s learner driver insurance for my car. No point her paying for lessons if she doesn’t practice.
