Thanks for the new thread Rogue

Nothing to report at present but I might get shopping later, we're out of food for the dogs.

Hi rogue and adora
There's another sept thread that's got quite a bit of traffic already. Fluffy set that up. Can't link as on phone but it starts with sashaying into September....

Thanks for the new thread rogue. We had to pay for more decorating and DIY stuff today but I was saintly and avoided spending any money on clothes, shoes or other fripperies while we were in huge shopping centre looking for curtain poles. <halo emoticon>

We are also meal-planning very strictly and using up every scrap of food we have, it's been great watching the fridge empty and realising nothing is getting wasted, and we have been eating really well too!

This summer has been a money drain with moving house but I start back at work on Wednesday and from then we are:

Meal planning and not eating out until October half term

No wine on school nights (always have this rule, but this year I start at a school where we teach on Saturdays, so only 1 night a week is allowed now in term!! shock

At least 3 NSD per week - should be do-able if we meal-plan properly and don't need to pop out for things each night.

Okay, looks like the other thread has more traffic.

Sorry I started this one - I did check to see if anything had been set up for September but couldn't find anything.

Anyway, shall we adjourn to the other thread???
