Made a pudding every night for after dinner. It used to be once in a blue moon.
Sit and have a drink or two and relax and chat before dinner, usually outside in the garden.
I spend half my life in a nighty! So much less washing.

Had a tattoo. See it every day and it reminds me not to ever get that drunk ever again !

Had my fillers done. So worth the money! Only lasts a while but plan to have redone next Feb when beautician runs her winter discount.

It sounds silly, but started saving. I’m on a low income currently and last summer DP had terrible MH problems and wanted me to leave. DS was 3, my family live 300 miles away and I was devastated and couldn’t afford to leave even if I had wanted to. I hadn’t realised how vulnerable having no savings made me.

In September I really knuckled down, looked at my finances and have now got over £1k stashed, through various means. It’s made being furloughed easier and I’m maintaining my savings levels despite that. It’s given me A LOT of confidence, knowing I’ve got an emergency fund.

Deleted everyone off Facebook. I still have it for community groups but no friends on it
