    Ah ma gad!

    Concert tonight that I have looked forward to for months was cancelled.
    Planned to meet a friend instead - who couldn't make it after all.
    Came home to find flat infested with flies.

    So.... super proud of my NSD 8/18 today!

    Ugh!

    On the plus side, made cakes and watched Midnight in Paris...

    Hope you've all had better days than me!
    We can do this! x

    Purchased a M'sD gift today. I had already budgeted for this and was going to leave it longer before purchase. However, I used vouchers, discount codes, and also got cashback. So with fantastic savings in tow, I decided to purchase today - I'm going to be hard and fair, and say it's a Spend Day.

    Rooting for you all with your NSD today

    Will be back with NSD no. 13 tomorrow
