Another big spend in the garden, my little lemon plant was expensive, but I did want to replace the one lost in the cold weather. My leather trainers were a bargain, too good to miss and I will wear them loads, no other clothes purchased and a couple of books to read.
More expense in the garden, replacing the final 2 broken panels, we are private again, with firm good quality post, hopefully for years to come, the post should stay even if any panels break.
I have spent a bit more on top up shops at daughters and we used loads more fuel in the car, she did ask how much should she pay us, but I won't answer, life is expensive when you have kids.
19th of May was UK's earth overshoot day, on this date we had used all the annual renewable resources, we are using these resources at twice the rate they are being produced, it's not just us, almost all countries are the same, our world can't keep up with human needs, we have to change. Just do your bit to help, like us, think about your foot print, and make it greener, don't worry if you are not perfect at it, very few of us are, but as they say 'every little bit helps'.
No food going off, it's the same each month, we get enough fresh fruit and veg each week, which keeps us out of the local supermarkets for top ups, just one visit to Lidl's for general shop. Hubby is not listening to me about portion size, he cooks too much and shares it all out, even though I was brought up to eat everything on your plate, I have started only eating what a need and binning the rest, in hope he understands, I think the message is getting through, he now hates waste as much as me.
My weigh is down a few pounds and my steps up loads, children are great at keeping you fit, the two little ones wanted almost everything I was eating, so in every case, I cut bits off ready to let them try, they both love raisin and cinnamon toasted bagels (my breakfast), the school run added an extra 3000+ steps each and every day.
