Times are hard for everyone and I'm trying to resist the temptation of just running off to town and spending copious amounts of money on pretty things that I possibly don't need. I have clothes in my wardrobe that haven't been worn yet, the weather is exceedingly crap and I need to save money for my big birthday milestone (posting later) so I have hidden my car keys and purse and stayed indoors this bank holiday weekend.
However I did have a retail scratch to itch and needed to get some fresh air, so I took a walk to my local charity shop (for our local cancer hospice) and purchased a couple of things, a scarf from Tie Rack for £1 and a cute little ornament for £2. So I gave a little money to charity and save myself from spending money on something that I don't really need, although resisting the temptation to spend on shoes is painful! I'm building up a nice collection of scarves and the ornament is part of my collection that I'm building up for a vintage style dressing room that I'm hoping to get done in the next year.
I've been working a lot this past few months so this bank holiday weekend I have done NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING. I have just relaxed, caught up on my TV recordings, ate an M&S dine in for a tenner meal and drank red wine. I have done a bit of house cleaning but simply doing nothing has been a bit weird and unnatural, I'm kind of antsy and feel guilty for doing nothing. But I do feel really relaxed. how have you spent your bank holiday?
