Well, schools aren't closed here. The class trip and parents evening has been cancelled.

The cinema is shut. McDonald's is o it drive-thru and takeaway.

I put my hands up and admit to using my credit card to do a grocery order. Got some extra tins but nothing extreme. Anyway I've realised I'll still be at work during all of this so there was really no need. I've just been witnessing at work how crazy people can get. Epic fail but we'll recover.

It's been a while so I thought I would update.

Kids are doing well. L is hitting her milestones; 13month review went well. J is thriving at his specialist school. SG is good, counting down till her eighth birthday.

Sinking funds are still being added to, i might have to increase them in the future though. Current balances are:
-90 in birthday fund
-60 in Christmas (plus 30 in vouchers so far)

Also, 30 to EF every four weeks.

Hubby's card is cancelled so trying to snowball that one.

I bought Budget Girl's monthly budget from Etsy last month. It is so much easier to manage finances. I can update on my phone. Best £4.26 i ever spent.
