Just on to let you all know that I am very much alive.
I had my auntie and cousin/best-friend come to visit us for a few days, was a little naughty spending too much, heading off into the big city and not forcing them to be stingy with the water and electricity.
Absolutely knackered and back to living on as little as possible now, feels good to know that I’m no longer consuming more than need be.
I’m happy to say that I saw sense and didn’t spend money on any new or secondhand gadgets. I wasn’t seeing the wood for the trees, it’s calls I need and not messaging.
Quite frankly, my friends will just have to accept the need to call or text (SMS) me. Why should I be stuck with something I don’t want nor need just because they prefer to use some messaging app or another? If this means they don’t communicate with me, well then perhaps they aren’t such good friends. :-P
What else, so the vegetarian diet is going well. I am eating a little bit of chicken once a week, but this is from my partner’s plate. That means no extra costs, dead animals or environmental impacts… or so I tell myself. This will only continue until I am sure that I have this meatless thing figured out and I will go on eating eggs and some cheese for the foreseeable future.
Next though is milk, I have tried alternatives before without much success but this time I am more determined. That said, this is not a cheaper option and is very much a matter of health before bank balance situation.
I am also cutting back more on my hours, but I’ll explain that and update you all more in the next post as I still need to catch up on my sleep.
