End of a 4 day working week, with a 3 day weekend coming right up (due to Waitangi Day) - perfect!
Five random photos from Dunedin/Central Otago...
and five random things this week -
I am partaking in a Month Of Letters. Every night I write to a penfriend or catch up on sending postcards. Or send Swap-bot things out or packages for bloggy swaps. Loving it. No mail this week, which is highly unusual. Snail mail is the bees knees. I am always on the lookout for more penfriends by the way..
We have Indian takeaways every Friday night. Love it. We either get takeaways from Tiffin or Satya.
Top notch food from both places.
Everyone is all settled back into school - more news today with the year 13 kid - he got 2% behind his mate Timo in the AS Computer Science exam - It was announced today that Timo got Top of New Zealand for his mark! We are thrilled for both boys, but really totally stoked with our own year 13. An incredible result!
I've put myself on a cash budget. I am trying not to spend more than $500 a week. That covers food/petrol/postage and whatever else I usually use my credit card for (wool/books/stationery...ahem). (does not cover rates/water/power/internet/insurance). This is under what I'd spend on my credit card usually and so far, it IS working wonders. 2 more days of the week to go and I have not even spent half of my weekly sum. The husband does a lot of the food shopping, but I am just trying to keep wasteful, discretionary spending by ME down! It does help when one does not go anywhere near the local shopping centre for anything! (None of us need a thing at the moment either!). I have proven to myself for 2 months now that I can live without shopping aimlessy (obviously Hong Kong and my little impulse road trip with the cousin - first time we have travelled together ever or spent more than 2-3 hours together in our entire lives! - were exceptions!)
I am also putting every bit of coinage in a money box till the last day of 2016!
And we have rain today! But best of all, the temperature has dropped and the humidity! Whew!
Happy weekending everyone! Joining in with Amy
