    Kew was great. I think I spent about £60 in total. We didn't come back till late. I have been tired for most of the day

    This morning I have cleaned the kitchen, sorted home insurance (£119). I finished the unpacking of clutter from old drawers and I am helping my neighbours with some things.

    I have Thursday, Friday & Saturday to do schemes of work. On Sunday I go to Winchester and should get another £70 from this for my holiday fund.

    Skinty i have only earned £140 so far from holiday job. Last year i earned nearly £1000 but to be honest i enjoyed the rest. I have decluttered my bedroom, store room and the house seems a lot more relaxed. I have also paid off my insurance from my salary and still have over £150 till payday. There is quite a lot to be said for not going away on your hols. lol.

    I am going to rest now. It is definitely getting darker and it is a bit chilly too after the glorious heat earlier in the summer. Tomorrow i will do my ironing and a scheme of work.

    Today was a low blood sugar day and i slept a lot- all I did was vacuum, wash some clothes and iron 4 bits of clothing, changed some lightbulbs and decluttered some shoes. I have pulled out of the tour on Sunday as I don't think I will have time to recover after 8 hours of walking before I go back to work on Monday.

    At the end of my holiday I am so happy that my bedroom and store room are decluttered. It feels like a weight has been lifted. I don't mind that I didn't earn so much money as I think I have really cut my spending down.

    I did some more ironing and also wrote some schemes of work only another 7 left to do I think!!!! It rained a lot today and I watched minimalism videos. I don't think they are that good but I am trying to get ideas.

    Today i have done 5 schemes of work. I also did a huge food shop so I will only need bread and fruit for next few weeks. I also decluttered my baking shelf in the kitchen. Then i had a humungous sleep.

    Because I didn't really have a far away holiday I am hoping I will be within budget and may be able to save an extra £50 this month? This is the first time I have done this in any summer. I am so pleased with myself.

    Next Saturday the boys are visiting with Andy's mum, and on Sunday I am car booting. Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah. I cannot wait for the garage to be empty Please let the weather be ok.

    Tomorrow I have a final two schemes of work to write, then I will copy all my lesson work onto memory stick for work on Monday. YUK......

    Last day of the hols. I had a big lie in and then i did my two schemes of work. I also decluttered some shoes and handbags for the carboot too.

    The weather is gorgeous and I have lots of lovely food in the fridge.

    This year I will continue to take food to work, avoid buying food unless I have a hypo. I will try to avoid comfort food and take my own tea as £1 is too expensive.

    All I can say about work is that there are two weeks till payday.:rotfl::rotfl:
