Did not manage to stick to £55 this week. It was one of those weeks when everything ran out, washing powder, loo roll, coffee etc so the final bill came to £62.07. Must try harder next week.

Hubby had the day off work today. He wanted to change the locks on our doors to some very high security locks which he had ordered after our neighbours incident last week. He also wanted to fit extra security stuff to the conservatory and do some other bits with the house alarm. It's like Fort Knox here. All he wants to do now is fit a higher gate to the rear of the garden but that will have to wait until next payday.

It's my own fault I've lost nothing this week. I've not been as careful this week and it's shown. Slipped back to having toast and butter on a few mornings and had a few puds last week so got to pull myself together and concentrate. It does not help with it being totm and wanting comfort food. I will try harder but I do struggle with dieting.

Right off to get my boots on and venture out into the cold night to take Sherlock for his walk.
Bye for now x


  1. Another tasty looking menu Karen. Hope you didn't get too cold walking Sherlock.

  2. Here in France cleaning, laundry products, shampoo and toothpaste are astronomically high and really nobble my shopping budget every time.

    I dread having to buy them.


  3. I think it's very sensible that your hubby is taking extra precautions with the locks, the incident with your neighbours would really unnerve me. I'm sure you'll sleep sounder knowing there's no way anyone could get in. Don't be too downhearted that you didn't lose anything this week, it's better than gaining.
