Considering the month we have had here so far, we are just about winging it towards our goals!
The savings goal is at £358 for the month so far, with another £392 to add to hit the target. Looking a little challenged, I have to say.
The various categories have suffered a little because my eye has not been on the ball the way that it usually is, as well as a number of unexpected expenses. My total car parking bill for the hospital ended up at £25, and I have already had an extra tank of diesel for the month; the FH had two new pairs of pyjamas, and we didn't shop properly for two weeks, although we didn't spend as much as I had thought. We are still within target on the groceries....
The FH has been up this afternoon, and has had visitors today: our old neighbour popped in this morning, and I fetched one of his old chaps to come and have a cuppa with him this afternoon. My F&W tutor was here this afternoon too, and I have had a number of telephone calls as well, asking after the FH. I did manage to clean the cooker and fold some washing this morning, but not the amount of cleaning I had hoped to have done.
Now I have to go and renew the car insurance on the Fiesta - more financial juggling. What exciting lives we lead!
