No spend day

February 7th, 2015 at 10:23 am

No spend Day.
However I cannot claim all the credit. I have been so sick, had I attempted to get in the car and go purchase goods I would have invariably passed out at the wheel and peacefully taken my family and whoever I collided with to the never never.

The last two weeks everyone has been sick. I put my immunity down to my obviously superior genetics and gym hardened immune system.
But just as everyone else gets better I am struck down with a worse, much fiercer strain of the sickness.
I know this by the fact nobody complained as much as I am driven to in the interest of community awareness.
Despite my protests to the contrary my unsympathetic wife maintains I have what everyone else did and I'm relocated to the children's bedroom so my updates ('complaining' is her word) don’t disturb the whole domicile.
I will take this moment to point out that she is not a doctor, nor a nurse, therefor unqualified to diagnose my condition with such broad and minimalizing statements as "you do not have Nile river virus".

Monthly food budget was
- $ 156.05 week 1
-$ 167.05 this week
= $301.10 left till the 24.2.15

We had the last of yesterday's lamb leg roast today with sandwiches. The kids appetites are finally back and they ate most of the meat themselves.
I however courageously showed restraint and subsidised my meal with Lindt chocolate.
I usually get a small bag for the week for $5.48. However some friends of the family are going on a diet so they gave me the remainder of this huge Lindt bag they got for xmas. Must have been close to $20.00 of chocolate. Free chocolate, any galaxy = WIN!

February payday is on the 28.2.15
Expecting a great pay but we have some big expenses this month.
A once off shipping cost has come in at approx. $2500.
Wife birthday - ??????
DS birthday = day out. Mini golf, go karts, arcade games and junk food.
So these expenses will reduce what we are planning to tuck away but they are unavoidable and necessary.
DD has not taken yet to toilet training. Much smarter than DS. Is aware of idle threats and blackmailing. Will need to back pressure off and formulate new incentive.

- bye

    Hope you feel better soon! I had a boss who asked his wife when she was telling him he wasn't sick when did she earn her medical degree! Smile
