    It should have been a NSD for me but I've forgotten to bring some toiletries to my boyfriend's so need to go out and pick them up. Lack of planning always catches me out!

    Day 3/18: be careful out there, folks!
    Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

    Day 2/15 for me.

    Was good today in town - had to get supplies for someone so they've paid me back but not spent a penny on my card.

    Spent yesterday though. My belly lets me down... especially when there is Biscoff Rocky Road at the local farmshop...🥴
