Oh dear, it's not been a good month spending wise 😱 I mean it's not terrible, I'm not in debt but I've been buying things to futureproof my retirement. I've spent a lot on DIY stuff and on the garden. Although I'm getting the garden and house ready for the party next month it all needed to be done any way.
I managed to cobble the damaged raised bed together with some metal brackets. It's not that sturdy but it will last until I sell the house and then the next owners can decide what to do with the raised beds. They might remove them altogether like the folk across the road from me did when they moved in.

Same spot this morning!
Amazon spending was £129.84 and Other Spending was (gulp!) £358.72!! I bought 2 books, some Urban Fruit and went for coffee and a bacon roll with a friend. Everything else was on garden/plants/compost/paint and DIY supplies. All things that will improve the appeal of my house and garden when it comes to sell next year.
I've also paid for new laminate flooring for my kitchen and utility room and the window repairs. But they came out of a separate savings account.
I'm hoping next month will be less spendy!!!!
