Can it really be a fortnight since the spending challenge started? It seems to have passed very quickly.
Last week, I was completely housebound with sick children, my parents calling in with food rations (bless them they really look after me when my husband is offshore). I actually didn't leave the house once. I would never wish for sick children but this did stop me from again doing my late night shopping Thursday ritual.
I did venture out on Saturday but only to the supermarket. I was extremely good, I planned my trip and only got the essentials needed. I walked passed the magazine aisle and flicked through Glamour and Cosmo though didn't buy a magazine - the shop assistant was throwing me glowers - can't blame her, it would really annoy me too.
I collected some takeaway pizza for me and my parents and a couple of bottles of wine. That is as far as my spending went.
I had a lazy day and a 'Downton Abbey' marathon, I don't think I left my bed for long let alone leave the house. Naughty I know!
Back to reality, children thankfully well and back to school. I joined my local 'Curves' gym, I have my first session on Wednesday, weather permitting, we have a lot of snow today. Afterwards I nipped to the post office to send the last of the Blogmas prizes which are long overdue.
That takes us up to today. I haven't been near a shop, just catching up on some blogging. I haven't even added anything to my wish list so it stays the same as last week -
Perricone MD No concealer concealer.
Are you proud of me? I am. Long may it continue. Have a couple of hurdles in the coming weeks, husbands birthday, a wedding, engagement party and 30th party - all of which i'd probably treat myself to some new beauty products - it's going to get tough! Oh I nearly forgot to say that this week I have to replace my compact powder and buy a cheaper alternative to my Estée Lauder eye makeup remover and Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo. These are items I find a necessity as per my 'winter empties' post. So they are allowed.
