Yay! I can finally get all the final bits that we need ready for back to school, which will be a relief. I have decided to e bay some items to help with the cash flow.
At first, I felt a little silly posting someone I ‘fancy’. It seems a bit more of a younger person word. After thinking about it though, I suppose there is no harm in using the term at my age and probably no different to the ‘crush’ post anyhow.
Therefore, this is who I fancy: my hubby. I just don’t post family pictures though!
Whoop whoop! Pay day tomorrow.
That being said, I have pretty much everything taken anyhow.
I will have £585 to last the month, although I do not need to get too much petrol out of that.
Out goings are:
£90 groceries (which, aside from fresh foods like bread, fruit etc) will last the month.
£90 for the hotel
£50 for hair cuts for me and the children (I really need it, or else I would forego this. It probably won’t come to £50).
£35 for some items from Amazon
Which leaves £320.
I figure that, whilst away, we’ll need about £170 to each over the two/three days that we are away.
So I will then have about £150 left to last the rest of the month.
I don’t have anything to confess! I might have to come back to this another day!
The past two days I have really struggled to get to sleep at a decent hour. Last night it was gone 1.30am, the night before gone 3.30am.
This is not unusual – this is something that generally happens to me when it is the holidays.
This means that I have not been getting up til late. Argh! I hate this. I want to do stuff!
This will catch me out in a lie because I am writing this on Day thirteen!
For a long time, it would have been: ‘Life is what happens to you whilst you’re busy making other plans’ which is by John Lennon.
Now, I do think that Harry Potter has some great quotes too, such as Dumbledore’s:
‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light’
As well as Snape’s response to Dumbledore’s question about loving Lilly Potter:
“After all this time?”
If you could only live off one food and drink – what would it be?
Easy for the food – hot dogs, friend onions and chips! Yummy!
For the food – very difficult. I’d probably go for lager, seeing as I craved that when I was pregnant with my middle daughter (I never gave in!) and, even though I am not a big drinker, having a drink after a difficult day at school is sometimes a must!
I decided that it was about time that I got my arse in gear and get on with some school work
I had a bad night sleep the night before / this morning as I have fallen into my typical holiday sleeping pattern of not being able to sleep until silly o’clock. This morning it was 3.30am. That meant that I didn’t get out of bed until late but I managed to start going through e mails and sorting out some of the lists and timetables ready for September.
Hubby has done some more overtime today, which will be helpful for our trip away. I am still anxious about money, but I am getting the rest of the children’s school uniforms tomorrow, with the exception of J’s shoes, which means that I know they will be OK for September. I hate being short on money.
