Am still applying for stuff. UCAS is a drag but necessary. Kinda scary but I will either get in or not. Either way its good to know and then you can move on. Wondering is a pain.
I know I want to complete a masters if the Social work thing doesn't work out. Am thinking Community development. I would also love go dog groom but that costs as much as a masters degree lol. Always time later for that.
Enjoying the time at home at the moment. Well I am generally. At times I feel a little out of the real world and feel a bit pointless but I snap out of it. I will hopefully start work again soon, once I get the Italian police check sorted. I much prefer housewifery and SAHM when I haven't got 8hrs to fill. Small boy helps too as does the hound. They have needs. I have purpose. 8 hrs is just way too long. 0815 to 1630 is ridiculous. How long does it take to clean and cook a few things? ( That was Italy and the duff school for you).
Anyway still trying to be frugal. I can see issues with the fridge and washing machine and hoover on the horizon. I will search out good offers.
Started on xmas stocking fillers. We will not be silly this year. I have a list and a limit for daft presents.
Loving Aldi. We spend £70 a week and that includes beer and nappies, milk for the boy, and lunches for the girl as well as nice evening meals. We are not bootstrap cooking but not being extravagant. Lots of fresh fruit and perishables that are all used. Ok some times I have remnants of an iceberg lettuce.
Bought a nice canvas landscape or rather coastal scape for all of £1 from a charity shop. reminds me of Sugar Sands in Longhoughton, Northumberland. That and the cracking price I snaffled it straight up.
Boy now at toddler group and Rhyme time. This is only twice a week. I need something on a Wednesday I think. Day on, day off. Girl back as dance and drama and guitaring. Not sure if we should or can fit in swimming. We will have to see. It's not cheap either. 15 per 30 mins guitar and £145 per term for dance ( 1.5 hrs session though).
