It’s payday, and on payday I like to treat myself to a special lunch. Today I spent the princely sum of £2.75 on a beautiful steak, mushroom & cheese baguette. Added to that cheeky little order was a can of diet coke (£0.60) and a kit-kat (£0.50).

Boooooy it was good. I’m thinking of going to get another one!

30th Birthday Ideas

leave a comment »

It’s coming up to my wife’s 30th birthdays and I’m starting to think about what I should be getting her. The thing is . . . I’m not really sure what you’re supposed to get someone for their 30th!

We’ve booked a nice family holiday to the balaerics, which we’re relly looking forward to and was supposed to be a joint present for us both. However,  I’ll feel a bit tight if that’s all I get her as there’ll be nothing for her to open on the big day.

I was considering a couple of options including a nice new radley handbag, one of those small laptops, or perhaps some nice jewellery.

Any ideas on the floor?

One of those horrible weekends this week that no matter how much you try to spend ZILCH you keep having to spend money. Very annoying:

1 – Haircuts (me & daughter) – £13.00
2 – Fuel – £20.00
3 – Groceries – £40.00

£63.00 spent on not very much at all. Very annoying really.

Can I eat donner kebabs when pregnant?

leave a comment »

Just having a look over our stats from yesterday and it seems someone found us by typing in ‘can I eat donner kebabs when pregnant’.

Well . . . I’d love to answer that question but I’m not qualified. I’m guessing that it would be safer to avoid them unless you’re completely sure about the health and safety measures of you chosen kebab provider.

Cheap un although had to pop into the supermarket to pick up some essentials. Spent £10.00 on the nose:

> Crisps
> Formula
> Bread (2 types)
> Washing powder
> Belgian Trappist Beer
> Cider

Quite a lot for £10.00 really. Oh forgot the Ginsters Steak pie. Lively!

Weekend Spends – Most depressing Monday of the Year

leave a comment »

I’ve heard rumours that today is supposed to be the most depressing Monday of the year. A culmination of Christmas Blues, skintness, illness and rubbish weather. Sounds about right!

Here’s the first verse of a song I wrote when I was 15 with my good friend Boggy (James Hodgson – I think he’s the road manager for Klaxons at the mo)

Here we go . . .

It’s after Christmas . . . I’ve got the blues

Happiness to me . . . You know . . . Just seems to be old news.
