Spending Ban Update #9

Monday, 11 March 2013


It's been one hell of a busy week for me but I'm pleased to say that I'm back on track with the spending ban and haven't bought anything off the banned list.  Yay!

At the weekend, I went for a long overdue haircut courtesy of Groupon (post on that coming up soon) and then I went to Crufts yesterday which was a lot of fun.  It's become something of a tradition for me to go every year, even though I mostly just spend the whole day petting the dogs in the Discover Dogs section rather than watching any of the actual shows! 
Anyone else go?

Aside from that, the rest of my week has mainly been dominated by drafting two very long essays for Uni - it seems like all my lecturers want everything in before the Easter break so I've been trying to get it all done asap.  Despite the deadline pressure, I'm glad the main bulk of it will be submitted soon, so that I can actually enjoy having a break from it all at Easter, instead of being stressed about what I need to finish!

So after last week's naughty mini splurge, this one has been much better for my bank balance.

      That's so cool that you cut your own hair, I've tried to do mine a couple of times, but I'm no good at it! xx
