This is highly annoying, considering that I only had a week to go. But I failed. First, my friend Sam went into labour on Friday (so she couldn’t hang out with me like we planned) so I decided I would get a couple baby books and a book for her. Then we got Mac’s niece two Roald Dahl books for her birthday. That already put me over the amount that I had left. So then I kinda went crazy and spent money on cheesy chips that night…and an apple turnover yesterday afternoon… and a cup of tea… and a pizza. It was ridiculous. So then last night we went to Mac’s mum’s surprise 50th birthday party…. that came to £31.50 for the two of us–and I was the bulk of that because I also got a dessert and pot of tea. GRRRRRR….
This is on top of the fact that I realised that my mobile is not a necessity, so that should probably be counted as part of my £74.65. I only spend £10 every month and a half on my phone because I get free texts when I “top up”. Of course, then I have to wonder about things like LoveFilm (the British Netflix equivalent) and our internet. I’m inclined to think that the internet is completely essential. I NEED it. But, deep down, I know that’s not true.
It does seem like I’ve already spent the bulk of next month’s as well.
Maybe I CAN’T live on £74.65.
