I have now updated our menu for the past week. This week the poppies in the front garden have finished to be replaced by the double pale pink peonies, blue geraniums and roses:
The white scentless roses also seem to suffer a similar fate although they don't rot in situ, the outer leaves shrivel to a brown colour which ruins the look of them.
I have just totted up the food and toiletry spending for last month and it came to £119.17, so we do seem to be sticking to our new target of £120 all in rather than the previous £160. That is good as it means £40 into the savings each month which can only be a good thing.
Despite spending less, I am still managing to buy one or two extra things each week for the spare food cupboard.This week it was a packet of couscous.
