I put up my Christmas tree yesterday. Each decoration is a Santa so it's my Santa Tree! My DIL helped me and she was amazed that every Santa was different. It's taken years to collect this many, none are remotely expensive and it's definitely a bit tacky. But I love it!! 🎅🎄
I realised that I hadn't done my November spending post. Confession time, I didn't keep a track of my spending last month. I could go through my statements and check but I'm suffering a bit from frugal fatigue. I didn't go overboard but I just didn't keep track. I think hitting my £10k target last month made me relax a bit. Unfortunately I've had to call out a plumber (twice) and an electrician to fix things at the flat and at home. So this month I can safely say my savings were ZERO!! 😳
It was our staff night out last night. a party night that cost £49 (paid for back in October.) I wore a new sequin top that cost me £11.25 from Tesco with black trousers and silver glittery Vans that I already owned. As I wasn't drinking alcohol my friend bought me some soft drinks and she drank my wine that came with the meal. So I didn't spend any money last night. I left before it started getting too wild but had a lovely time.
I have 13 and a half teaching days left until the Christmas break, if I last that long. My job has become impossible to do with some children who simply should not be in mainstream school. I will do my best for the other children in my class but I suspect my retirement from teaching is imminent.
