I've just been lucky enough to come into a bit of money ( £2400). I've been out of work for the last 3 yrs and things have been tough. I'm keen to go back to college and the part time course I 'm looking at is about £600. I don't go anywhere or do anything apart from when I'm out with the kids because of money being tight. Dh has a gym membership which I've never complained about as he has suffered from depression on the past and exercise definitely helps his mood. With the rest of the money I wanted to get a week away somewhere and get some things done in the house. Told dh about college and he made a face and said he thinks I'm getting carried away and should hold on. I was raging earlier.....I'm basically a fucking hermit and do very little purely for myself. Am i being selfish to want to spend £600 on myself?

Do it - it's your money and you've been more than fair in allocating 2/3 of it to family things. I'm sure your relative would have wanted you to get some enjoyment from the money?

I work for a LA and we had a complementary therapies woman come into the office i used to work in once every two weeks. I loved the reflexology. Lying in a darkened room for 30 minutes in work time getting my feet rubbed. It was bliss and helped with the stress of my job. I say go for it.
