April budget has all gone to pot
It is only the 14th April and already my budget for food for the month has nearly run out. Ooops. I have £19 to last me until May.
We have had a very sociable couple of weeks which seems to have eaten all my money.
We had my sister and her family to stay - all of whom eat different things and prefer branded stuff (they came to the wrong house here then!). We then had an Easter party for 20 people, a dinner party for friends last night, husbands family coming for lunch today and we are out again for dinner tonight.
So my poor food pot is looking very empty.
I am not really complaining as it has been lovely to catch up with so many people.
I shall just have to make the most of what is in the cupboards and freezer. Plus work our way through the stash of Easter eggs that we have been given - I didn't think I would say this, but I think I have gone off chocolate!
