Me and 17 year old ds alone for 2 weeks. All bills paid-so just food and entertainment, I suppose. Full tank of petrol which will probably last the fortnight. Ds has money but will need a bit of subbing, possibly. I am going out 3 times-twice to the pub and once out to lunch. We will cook and eat nice food when we're both in because we enjoy cooking together. What would you budget?
I knew Dp was feeling guilty! We’re not going away this summer, but he, jammy sod, has been asked to do something he loves for 2 weeks (and get paid) so he said he’d transfer money to me (we have separate personal bank accounts and always have- works for us!j for ds and me to have a nice time while he’s away and he’s transferred 700 quid. I wonder what he thinks we’re planning to do!
Treat yourselves to a day out somewhere Host a bbq for friends Spa day for you, theme Park for him? Or both of you do both! Go on a little shopping spree Takeaway and movie night Or restaurant and cinema night Hair dressers for a new do
Nice guy, your DP. Not so much the amount of money-though that’s lovely, but just the thought of helping out so you guys can also do something nice. Even if he could only afford £50, it’s still a lovely gesture. Hope he has a great two weeks doing his fun thing and that you and DS do too ❤️
We can’t go away because of complicated timing of things and animals and stuff. It’s the money he’ll earn sailing, so he gets the fun and we get the dosh. So it’s proper free money to be spent entirely guilt free. We will have fun!
