How has everybody's day been? Almost the weekend! I always intend to do a three things Thursday post, and sometimes on Friday I find a half written one that I forgot to finish and post... Perhaps today you will see this one!!
I've been seeing a lot about budgeting on the blogs lately, I'm joining in! Mike and I are planning a budget, and we're sticking to it! We're terrible for popping to the shops for milk or bread and coming out with 4 bags of shopping. Not now! We've budgeted an amount for the week and once that's gone, it's gone... I'm sensing some creative meals while we get used to it haha... These may or may not be shared on the blog, depending on how disgusting they are! We've also vowed off takeaway unless we 'save up' for it by cutting back in other areas, we don't eat it a lot but it does tend to cost a lot of money. It helps that last time I got takeaway there was a piece of chicken in my vegetable curry... don't fancy eating it ever again!
I have some news which I can't wait to share on the blog but I daren't just yet in case something goes wrong and I jinx us! (we're not having a baby!) I'm almost bursting wanting to tell you all, I hope I can soon!
The chilly weather is making me think of Christmas already! It doesn't take much at all to get me excited about Christmas, my most favourite time of year! But I must admit, August is early, even for me! Am I the only one out there to be thinking of Christmas already? I am just really hoping I don't have to work, the job I have now means they will be open on Christmas day which means I may have to work, I will be so gutted if I have to work Christmas day but that's life I guess. It will happen when/if I eventually go into nursing so I may as well get used to the possibility now!
Well, I almost missed this Thursday too! It's gone 11.30 and I almost got too carried away reading blogs that I forgot to finish writing it!
