Just in case you thought the mumster would be budgetising every weekend, today she blew the cobwebs off her wallet and spent some dollars on stuff. It has been a pleasant weekend in the city, warm with a bit of wind. Mum went out for dinner with her bestie last night, but there weren't enough middle aged lady movies scheduled, so they decided to head home early. Sunday was allocated for spending fun.
So, today mum headed out for a seaside walk and a spot of shopping at the Warehouse, where you can always find something to blow some bucks on. Today mum decided to stock on some pyjama pants, the wild blue ones and mild pink owls. Oh and bonus, the pyjama pants now have pockets in them, which mum loves, as if she slides them on after work, she still wants her keys in her pocket so she can unlock the doors.
Some new flannelette sheets to warm up the winter bed, already washed and just drying in the drier ready to put on the bed tonight. Mum also bought a DVD and some tasty groceries, hello steak and mash for dinner, and custard and feijoas for dessert (a NZ/ South American fruit).
A couple of mums power bills were out of control last year, with the highest one being $400 (about 200 pounds or $320 US)!!! That was for gas and electricy, but just remember that mum lives alone, she is out at work most of the day and only every heats our small living room and bedroom. Hopefully as the weather has been mild so far this year, the bills won't be as steep this year.
