    NSD no.1 today.
    Grateful for:
    Speaking to brother on phone.
    Sorted out menu plan. Made food shopping list and a couple of other things that I need to do tomorrow.  Have put off buying something I had on list as I am in no rush to buy it.  It is another cross stitch kit, want to wait until I find a suitable one that I want and like.
    Still having things I brought online during last full lockdown, eg 5 ltr eco friendly washing up liquid, fabric conditioner, so I do not have to worry about ordering.
    Went for walk this morning.

    Well ending the day with confirmation that I did manage to fit in a few steps. I parked the car a distance away from the shop and while not much to some, it was a lot of walking for me. I have also managed to avoid the sweet stuff so far. Fingers crossed I make it to bed time. Unfortunately I spent a few quid in the shops but nothing frivolous I am pleased to say. I got a beef joint reduced from over £10 to £6.08, a tin of kidney beans at 30p and a jar of minced garlic and ginger for £1, normally £1.39. Grateful for a warm house, and cosy bed to lie down on and while the afternoon away...
    Starting Total in September 2019 = £38287.77

  • First spend of my new annual budget today -bought bread, cow juice and soya milk for the week - £6.84 😊 Dinner was from storecupboard.
    So far I have resisted the urge to smoke and am pretty pleased with myself - I'm not climbing the walls or feeling grumpy about it! 🙌 Haven't drunk anything either and not feeling the need to so that is a bonus! 
    Grateful for being good, warm house, comfy bed and finally finishing the work that I needed to do this weekend!
