This and That

August 24th, 2016 at 04:40 pm

I'm on my phone, so excuse the typos.

I picked SG up from nursery today and she told me that her feet were hurting her. After I dropped her off at home, I went to tesco to pick up an emergency pair of trainers for her. I found a pair half a size bigger than she was wearing, on sale for two pound.

I've been using the Notes app on my iPhone to keep track of spending. It seems to be working.

I finally added another ten pound to my Asda Christmas savings card. This should cover the cost of what we spend at the butchers in December - hopefully.

It turns out that my mum actually didn't have a stroke, at least according to her specialist. She is getting an mri soon to confirm or find out more.

Spoke to a random guy at work today. His partner works in the same place as me too. He was telling me that every two years they take their entire blended family to Florida, costing them 9k. He suggested I do this in the future with the kids (we were talking about holidays) I said that we'll take the kids to England first since they've been nowhere.

I think that's all.

    That sounds like a good price on the shoes! That also sounds like a good thing that your mom didn't have a stroke; I hope that they're able to figure things out further with the MRI. I think England is a great place to start for vacationing! Once we're out of our present financial bind, I'd like to start saving regularly for family vacations. But any time away spent as a family doing fun things is probably what the kids will remember when their older - not where they were, but who they were with. Smile

    You're right! It's the time together, not where you are that's important.

    When I was a kid I had no idea about travel, I just measured my days in fun. I'm sure your kids would love England, save the big trips for when they're older, go to Spain or something then.

    Florida? WHY!? Wink Save your money.

    The others make great points. We never vacationed/traveled when I Was a child. What I don't understand is why my parents didn't do more of the small things. They may have had their reasons. But we pile up on the smaller things that we can actually afford to do and in turn also get to enjoy more often. My son is camping this weekend, for example. IT's dirt cheap and he will be in paradise, not too far from home.
