Money Diet

Well, it was bound to happen eventually. I think it was that second pair of Mary Jane's being delivered by the little men* that did it.

Mr Duck Herder has put Mrs Duck Herder on a money diet.

I have an allowance. A quota if you will. And I have to write everything I buy in a little book. And the book will be CHECKED apparently.

Mr Duck Herder is on the money diet too. I suspect its going to become a bit of a competition.

In other news, I rode Selina home from the farmers market this morning. It was lovely. She was lovely. Her stem it just the tiniest bit too short, so I need to find a second hand one from a similarly old and weirdly sized bike......

that is all.

* the little delivery men.

Those money diets, so needful, yet so painful.All for the best I suppose~as long as there is always enough money for duck feed!

Oh bugga!Finances are complicated, I gave up having mine overseen or regulated by anyone but me years ago, couldn't stand the strain.Now I do it my way, works for me.

Hee hee, day 2 and I am still on the wagon!

Von, I think the problem is that I have always had a VERY relaxed attitude to money - believing that it is just energy......some structure and accountability will probably to me good!

When your husband ends up being on a first name basis with numerous couriers delivering endless little eBay and Internet packages to his door, then darling, it is time to admit we have a problem.

And I say that with a heck of a lot of love.
