Little tidbits

Managed to bag a free personalised mother's day card from Money Saving Expert today, worth 4.99Gbp.

SG's birthday is fast approaching, we will be using high Street vouchers that were meant for Christmas.

Things here are tight but we're getting by. I found a new frugal blog to follow, Frugal Queen, so I'll be attempting some of her recipes. I might also make Jack Monroe's 9p kidney bean burgers at some point.

My uncle's funeral is next week, seems money was the reason things weren't moving along quickly. My mum offered her savings to help but her other brother declined. Went to visit my cousin, who explained to me exactly what happened when my uncle died. I think he wanted it off his chest.

I didn't realise it had been so long since my last entry.

Things have been quite busy here. We have a potential move in our future. Might have to touch savings if we do end up moving.

My uncle died. He had been ill for a while. I'm not sure when the funeral is. He was single and unemployed so I have no idea who is footing the bill.

I had a birthday, although it was spent getting ready for the housing officer coming over the next day.

Found out we are entitled to healthy start vouchers. They can only be used to buy fruit, veg and milk. I sent away the form a few days ago.
