This & That

March 18th, 2015 at 07:09 am

My employer left me a voicemail the other day, so I returned the call. It was my manager who phoned. She had seen a holiday/vacation request form in the office with my name on it (dh put it in for me) and was surprised that I was coming back. I guess she thought since I had been so ill before finishing up from having those two surgeries that I wouldn't be returning. She asked what hours I was looking for and I explained. She has to check what vacancies the dept has but I don't expect to return to my old department when I'm back. I might even move to dh's dept, his manager told him there's plenty of hours going.

I went shopping today and spent just under thirty pounds. I seem to be averaging 30/wk. This is with a very specific list though, and I did add on a few items (tissues) at the checkout. However, we would normally have to buy more nappies but we've got a lot of them from when dh found them on offer last pay.

My mum now has more savings than me, she doesn't know though. I noticed that she is only spending about two thirds of her income. She has an unofficial buffer in her bank account. I'm sure she would wipe it out if she needed it though.

After VS from oz blogged about her progress, I checked my progress. I have reached 32% of my goal (113/350)

    Great job on keeping your shopping to 30/week! When are you going to tell your mum you've been secretly saving money for her?

    She knows but she doesn't know how much she's got. I used to only transfer 10 GBP each time, now I do 20. She should see all of this on her bank statements but I honestly don't think she pays that much attention to them.
