A Cinema Treat & 'The Fund'
I have just returned from the cinema, Silver Cinema to be precise. OH is working today (his voluntary job) and I didn't want to sit at home worrying about things so tootled off to the 11am showing of Bridge of Spies. It cost just £3 and I got a paper cup full of delicious coffee and two digestive biscuits included in the price .... a bargain! I got over two hours worth of escapism for my money and didn't succumb to the overpriced snacks either. Knowing I would need another drink during the showing I took a small apple juice carton in my handbag so rather than spend £1.99 (How much!) on a small bottle of water it cost me less than 19p for my juice drink. When the kids were small I used to make sandwiches to take with us and pop them in my biggest handbag because my son, in particular, was always hungry and could eat for England :/ I never had money for food out then so the habit has kind of stuck with me. I'm sure I'm not alone in doing this.....
A 'birthday fund' update.....Two small items have sold on fleabay so another £7 has been added to the fund making £43.69 in total. I set my heart on making £50 for DD's birthday so I am almost there with 2 weeks to go :) I have some card orders from friends so payment for those should nudge me ever closer to the £50.
For my year of 'Do More Good' I sorted out my costume jewellery drawer at the weekend and have taken a bag full of items to the Hospice shop along with another half dozen handmade cards for them to sell. I am also currently knitting another baby cardigan for them which I hope to finish by next weekend.
Have a lovely day everyone, whatever you have planned x
