I put £8 in my save the difference tin today. The dog food I buy is usually £7 per bag but was on offer at £5 so I bought four of them.
A morning trip to Dunelm resulted in some cushion inners for Mum and these bits for me. A new cup and saucer, an hourglass and some gold ribbon for Thomas' Greek costume which I'll have to get down to sorting out this week. The hourglass is something I just fancied and is on the fireplace. I'm still looking for a couple of bits to go with it. I'm toying with the idea of a 'time' theme, but not sure yet.
Mrs Miles' diary is proving to be a good read. As well as her entries there are footnotes, so when she writes "heard Hitler's speech at 2pm", the gist of the speech is explained. Which means as well as reading about the war from her point of view, a bit of background information is thrown in which is interesting.
And other bits and pieces today included picking up my prescription, making a curry for tea, a bit of jigsaw, some housework, washing and ironing.
It's all exciting stuff.
