Walking and pondering.
Pondering on how well the cost saving drive is going. Not….
Having spent hours going through the weekly shopping list, looking for deals, switching to saver brands, cutting out waste, the bill came in £10 more than the last previous week……
Filling up the diesel thirsty car and finding it was £75 to fill up the tank this week, £3 dearer than last week…..
Paying this quarters electricity bill and finding it had more than doubled compared to the last one……
Filling up the Home Fuel Oil Tank costing £800, last year it would have cost £300.
I could go on but you get the picture. We are ok but many are struggling. Definitely the time to appreciate the simpler life. Appreciating things like walks. Lifts the soul and costs nothing. Then guess what. My shoe sole starts to come off. Maybe not so free after all🤣🤣🤣🤣 But life has helpfully moved on. Hawklad is bigger than me. So now these days I can enjoy ‘hand me downs’. He must be near growing out of his shoes real soon.
Oh hang on, that means buying him new shoes. Just for a moment I had thought I had actually saved some money there. How silly of me to think that.
