Food has been delivered and we are all full up with everything we could need. I have previously purchased enough paper and ink etc for home schooling, so all good there too. I imagine lots of no spend days as although money will be ok, I wont be getting an awful lot re wages as only get paid the hours worked and that will be reduced. Going to get an early ish night as didn't sleep well again last night. Nice hot bath first I think is definitely needed.
Feels like it doesn't stop this having kids lark! We've been playing animal crossing and I wish it was as easy to pay off a mortgage in real life.
Keep up the good work xxxx

Good news is that my car passed its MOT. I was really happy, even though it needs several things doing to it and some really quite urgent. I am however really not going to be using my car for the next 6 weeks so I can take my time to look at where to take it to get it done at a good price. I need a new tyre, new cups (or something to keep dust our of another part - almost perished?) and something near the exhaust is a little rattley and may make a noise if not tightened up. She did make a point that the tyre was worn on the inside so I was unlikely to have noticed, which made me feel like it wasn't from lack of car maintenance awareness. Anyway money taken from car fund. I will need to top this up when wages come through at some point today, and I may add in the money for clubs too as they are not likely to start anytime soon. We heard earlier today that DD2's primary school will provide her with pack lunch food parcel next Monday as vouchers haven't been sorted yet by the government. I need to see what is in the freezer and work on our meal plan. I am thinking that we will probably be able to skip the food delivery slot this week as I'm sure we have enough already here, especially if we are getting lunch food parcels for all 3. All savings on food are a bonus
Relieved you've been given all the food. Certainly takes a lot of strain off your shoulders. Hope it's all nice food for you all to eat. Xxx
