A really low spending month
Card from Lidl, for use on Christmas cards
For measuring socks
I popped out shopping for an hour today, and picked up the book of coloured card and the glitter card, both perfect for card making, it's included in the monthly total above.
The sock measure I purchased with some early birthday money, I am finding it great for hubby's socks, ensuring both are the same size. I am almost finished, which is very pleasing.
Hubby is doing well, resting and eating small meals, not trying to do any banned activities, we are enjoying time together, plus are cats are much happier. Daughter popped in with Will for a short visit today, which cheered both of us up, our little man just knew his Grancha was not well and was so gentle.
Daughter also brought a portion of chilli for hubby, it's something I do not eat and find it very hard to cook.
I am not looking at saving any money in the coming weeks, heating is on all day to keep the house warm, I will purchase anything hubby fancies to eat, he is eating so little.
I have to admit I am not missing the drives to Southampton each day. Even with the parking discounts, I spent over £200 on fuel and parking, we are lucky we have the spare cash, it must be horrible for anyone on low income.
But I am enjoying restful days at home, even though I am doing everything in the house, I am feeling much calmer, and enjoying reading time.
