I got quite a few things off my list, even if that list took an age to create as there is very little that I need or want:
Presents are also received from DDiL's parents (the funky vegetable kit and edible flower kit plus jars of pickles). Ones from us have gone down with them for their New Year break.
We spent a total of £64 for Christmas/New Year food and drinks, and £30 for all GF products and trials, split over two months. We have enough left over to last us for several meals. We have been shopping today for essentials, but I still hope our total food/toiletry bill from 24th December to 23rd January will be normal. We shall see.
The heating whilst on for 45 minutes every morning, was only put on once or twice. Hot water a few more times so our water usage and electricity will be up, but should now be back to near normal for this time of year. As well as being relatively mild weather wise, two extra people and 3 dogs certainly pump out extra heat.
We seemed to all be constantly putting on or removing jumpers!
