My spending again this month is higher than in previous years, but in truth most of the extra spend this year has been on wool, having time to knit is great, but it's not a cheap hobby.
I am doing cross stitch, but I have so much in my stash I don't need to purchase anything for new projects, it's the same for my cardmaking.
My steps were the best this year so far, avg 7193 per day, I managed a longer cycle with hubby. Plus I hit my goal weight, I did flutter back up but I am now half a pound over where I want to be. So I am classing April as a good month. It's nice to be able to wear more of my clothes again, I am determined not to go up a dress size. I have also decided on what I want my weight to be at the end of May.
We started another saving plan, as we (or do I mean I) are not shopping so much, we are finding we have spare cash each month, and I would rather we tied it up in savings. We have also booked a holiday for later in the year, we will have my birthday (November) in the sun for 11 days.
Our recycling is going well, we have so little one use plastic coming into our house, at this point we can't completely stop it. We do always look for cardboard packaging, but often they have plastic inside. My green lids are working well, we do not use much stretch and seal for foods in the fridge.
I am without youngest daughter and Will this week, they are having a sunny break with Grandma and grandpa, I am loving the photo's of Will playing in the sun.
No sign language class today, we are all going for a pub lunch, it's our tutor's birthday, so a lazy afternoon of chatter.
