Day 3 Of My Fiscal Fast
Another no spend day for me today, it's really easy to not spend anything when you stay home. However having said that my Mother-in-Law did spend and because she lives here she brought into the house a crusty loaf ( a want not a need ) a kilo of white filleted fish ( I had already organised dinner ) a bottle of red wine ( a present for The Foxx just because ) there is no earthly way I can prevent this from happening. She had had a day out with her Daughter and they ended up in the supermarket, so did we eat the fish YES did we have a glass of wine with it YES was it nice served with crusty bread YES do I feel as if I have cheated YES even although I spent nothing.
So am I being silly by not being grateful, please give me your opinion because I feel I have failed in my Fiscal Fast through no fault of my own.
Tomorrow I am going to have to spend some money, as the baby shower is being held at a coffee house, near where my Son lives. My Daughter will be driving us there and so my hand will be going into my purse to contribute towards the petrol and whatever I eat for lunch, but I will be cutting back whereever I can.
My little garden is really giving me a lot of pleasure just now, and as we approach winter it is going to be time to plant Pumpkin and Potatoes. The herbs are doing great and we have now planted Bok Choy and Brussel Sprouts. So after this week it will be back to the Garden Centre..
