    I am going to copy over all my posts about my new kitchen or lack of it!!!!

    I am changing my thread name back to a more saving focussed one so I don't get distracted.

    Addendum: I have changed the name again as I am planning to chill out now I have savings and am going to continue to save for happy times. lol.

    Today I have some marking to do until 11am and then I am going to have a hair cut (15). Food + taxis 42.00. Just watered garden. It may rain tomorrow. It hasn't rained for about a week here and it feels glorious.

    I am going to try to avoid spending at work to save money luckily I bought lots of good food today.

    It has rained so much today, roll on summer. I bought sandwiches for two days as I forgot to buy filling lol.

    Crazy marking to do this week and then things will slow down. Hurrah nearly there.


    When work calms down might be switching one of my accounts and hope I can get some money for doing so.

    Good luck with the bank switch SW. I was looking at the offers but I don't get paid enough for the larger 175 offer.


    The rain here has been torrential too but it is bright and sunny this morning so I am hoping it will last.

    I will try the switch in about two weeks when work calms down as I am so tired I don't want to make a mistake. It is raining again luckily I just bought my clothes in.

    I haven't done any decluttering this week of the spare room. I love your grocery challenge Hayley. I will try that one time. In about a month I will break up for hols. I hope I get lots of hours with my summer job! I want the money and travelling.

    I did all my marking. This week will be mad at work. Please let it be a good week.

    It's supposed to rain till Friday and hopefully be nice at the weekend. I have just decluttered two more carrier bags of mirrors, glass ornaments and some nice shoes towards my carboot. I am watching decluttering videos on the internet to inspire me. I will try to do some more even if it rains. I really wish I didn't have all this stuff I would be so rich now. lol.

    My parents come at the weekend. I cannot wait to see them.

    I gave 30 from xmas fund to my niece for her birthday. This leaves 165 for food and for fun for the rest of the month. 5 weeks till summer hols. Not that Im desperate or anything. lol.rotfl:

    Well my crazy work week will be over in the next few days. I have spent a fortune on taxis doing late nights and eating lots of pre-prepared carp at work.

    Today I took a day off and helped my father with his paperwork and tidied the house. He's visiting for Father's Day. Hurrah.

    Roll on the summer hols. I am visiting the boys next weekend and am really looking forward to it.
