For our 4 day mini break we plan to have: Dinner out one the Monday, breakfast out on the Wednesday and go to the Fish & Chip shop one night.
We are planning to go to M&S tonight as the biscuits and chocolates I want to get for my stocking fillers can only be brought in store. I also left 1 meal empty on the meal plan this week so we could pick up something 'fancier' for tea one night.
I also managed to do a survey on PA for 25p.. every little helps!
Not too much to report in the land of money really. We're going cinema today to see the new Bond Film. It cost £13.98 for two tickets - I paid for the better seats because it's a 3 hour film and my poor back can't take bad chairs at the moment due to my bump.
I've been in the City Centre today as I've been at work getting my laptop fixed. My spends today are:
- £6 in Tesco
- £9 in paper chase for 3 individual Christmas cards for close family & a pack of 12 Christmas cards
- £3.55 in Costa
- £1 in Greggs
I'm back in town on Friday for work as well for my last day. I have £10 budgeted for this. It will allow for me to get a coffee. I have a £10 voucher for a few food places so I'll use the voucher to plan and buy lunch
I keep updating my signature as well as the PA money hits that account. It’s nice to see it grow. I’ve managed a few surveys today but they’ve all have been for less than 0.25p. I am doing a 3-part survey over the course of three months, with the opportunity to earn a bonus payment.
And on top of that, we also assembled the baby shower gift bags!
I also managed to do a further 2 surveys on PA but I hardly had time to check today as work has been so busy. Only £5 to go until I hit my monthly target which I’m pleased with
The nursery is 95% complete. We only have the fabric lettering to go onto the wall and it’ll be all finished. I’ve also got the majority of my hospital bag ready, I just need to pack it.
Today has been a chilled day as well. I did manage a 1 mile walk before it started to rain.
I've also packed everything our suitcase for our trip, all I need to do now is finish our toiletries and put the additional electronics in a bag.
I’ve reached my £30 target in PA but will wait until the 1st Nov to cash out
Since we got home we have: done a load of washing and put in the dryer, had lunch, cleaned the pots, emptied and sorted the suitcases and additional shopping bags, took down the balloon arch and also had a quick hoover round.
