I've just finished work and looking forward to nearly 2 weeks off from work. Cant wait! Yesterday, we received some fantastic news and I will tell more after Christmas, see you on the other side, take care

Mitts and money







Firstly, look what came in the post for me, just at the right time as well with the cold weather. Anne Marie at Beetles, bikes and books made these fingerless mitts for me. Thank you so much.
I also recently received some lovely Christmas delight from Callie at Callies Cottage. A while ago, she had a Christmas giveaway - I won some Father Christmas goodies, including some decorations for our Christmas tree. I would post pics, but the battery in the camera has died.



On the money front, I had returned to the envelope system for things like the food/petrol budget. I have also been writing down everything we have been spending, as well as shopping lists and menu planning. I went through our direct debits and cancelled only one which was unnecessary. On the whole, I think we are getting back in control and we have stuck to our Christmas budget.
