Not No-Spending!

Well the past three days has seen me spending money, when I said I wouldn't. Firstly, I was working in a different location and ended up paying for car parking. I wasn't familiar with the area. On the plus side, as it was for work, I can claim back my £2.90 on expenses as well as the mileage, so perhaps that doesn't count.

I hate paying for parking
My next massive extravagance was a bottle of wine - only a fiver, but not budgeted for. I was invited out for a meal and past tradition means that I always turn up with some wine. I'll have to come up with a more frugal offering when I'm invited next. Still I didn't have to cook on Sunday evening and a good time was had by all!


  1. good times are worth the effort... and the pennies xx

  2. wow! you have a job in Crewe!! we could pass on the street... I will have to wear a rose or a hat...at all times xx He-He xx

  3. I think that even when we're on a tight budget we still need to have room for the odd extra spend - I'm sure that bottle of wine was worth every penny for the fun that it gave you.
