The Challenge didn't go too well this week. Yes we lived out of the cupboards and freezers all week, well until Friday anyway. I hadn't spent a penny till then, and then we hit the road for our first viewing, stopped at the services and bought a much needed caffeine boost in the form of a Skinny Latte on the way there and then hunger struck on the way back, and we stopped for a pub lunch, amazing value actually, two meals and two drinks for £11.80, so not the end of the world.
But then I went to the 'Bad Place' on Saturday as we had ruin out of sparkling water (the 2 litre bottles are only 16p each and we re-cycle the plastic bottles for our 'Worm Tea' so even better value), and somehow managed to spend £29.13, admittedly all on fresh fruit and veg and bread, so within the remit of the Challenge, but it felt as though the pennies were slipping through my fingers.
I counted what was left and was almost happy to find I still had £25.78, not the end of the world then. But then we stopped off on the way to our viewing yesterday to visit a lovely little Farm Shop by the side of the road and suddenly I was handing over £15.22 for necessities. Oh well, £10.56 went in Spotty Jug, as Lovely Hubby said 'every penny counts' just as he tucked into his very necessary Venison Steak!!
