If you've seen the footage of the brave and rightly furious woman in Ukraine telling a Russian soldier to put sunflower seeds in his pocket then you'll understand this message chalked on a NYC pavement. My thoughts are with the Ukrainian people and also the many Russian people who don't want this war either 🌻
I'm now in my third week of absence from school. I have 2 days' worth of antibiotics left. I've been feeling rather queasy after taking them and actually threw up on Saturday. I don't have an appetite so I try to eat when it's a meal time rather than when I feel hungry. My cough is just irritating now, not so much yucky stuff left I hope. I'm still a bit breathless but working on building up my stamina now. I've also got a nearly completed craft project 🧶✂🧵 I'm on a roll!
It's the last day of February (already!!) so time to look at what I've spent this month. I'm noticing that writing everything down has really made me focus on what I spend my money on. I've already mentioned the impulse spend in Te$co while waiting for my prescription 🙄 I bought floor tiles for my bathroom. I put £10 into a retirement gift at school. I had to replace my broken sock knitting needles. I bought a paper sewing pattern (more on that another time.) And I've found a subscription that I had cancelled but they've taken another payment. I'm trying to sort that out. Plus some food shopping too.
Total spend for February (excluding known house and car costs) was £319.53.
Savings account now has £1570.73.
That's 2 months of the challenge down, 46 to go! 💰
