Hmm.. ok I am dead set on budgeting all this year. This doesn't mean poverty but means cutting down on totally unnecessary spending (mainly thinking when shopping for food... not shopping for things as needed at the corner shop as opposed to buying things from a supermarket). My budget for spending money will be £400 a month and I will not take more than that out. Or else you'll have to shoot me.
Got home to find Jim watching Thomas Cook TV, and getting excited over a summer holiday. He wants 14 days of sun and relaxation which would be rather nice. Cuba is the current top of the pops but Mexico (please read this as Meheco which sounds far more fun). I've just gotta try to think of it as a holiday not an experience. Otherwise I'll spend no time resting and far more time exploring. And I don't think that's what Jim is looking for in our main holiday... and I'll admit I really want to relax somewhere nice too.
Hmm... well I was planning on leaving my current job this year to find something better but events of the last few days mean I am more than happy to stay a little longer. So Jae is going to spend the year getting a nest egg together ready for holidays, adventures and the buying of nice things. Yay!
