A £1 Saved…

I am very tempted not to post tonight. I can’t think of anything interesting to write and I can’t concentrate on finishing several posts I am halfway through.

Sorry about that. I’ve tempted you in and now revealed there’s nothing here for you. It’s bit like those sites on the internet where they tempt you in with promises of being surprised by what a housewife from Sheffield found in her back garden. You click and you end up clicking 25 more windows, by which time you are bored, annoyed and becoming suspicious that you have been lied to.

I’m not even convinced she has a back garden.

The best event of the day happened when I went to fill up the car and pump up the tyres. The air pump was still running when the man in front finished doing his, and carried on running till I did all four of mine. It normally costs me £1, so that’s a whole pound saved. I’m going to put it in a pot and save it towards our round the world cruise.

The round the world cruise fund is a new innovation for this year. So far it contains £1. We need a bit more to make this dream into reality.

And that is about all the good stuff that happened today.

 

 

A Loafing Sort of Day

I had an early start, picked Number Two son up from work and was back home before 8 o’clock.

At that time the day could have taken one of two routes. One was a day of activity. The other was to become a lazy day. I went back to bed and slept like a log.

The cunning use of dramatic foreshadowing in the title has probably given you a clue.

Julia cooked vegetable crumble for tea.

I’m having trouble with the charging of my laptop.

Tomorrow is blood test day.

I’m sure there is more to life than this…
