Yes. So near and yet so far. But I’m happy :-). I needed to get detergents for the cleaners at the beginning of the week and post a parcel today. I had also run out of the following items: Butter, milk (was on powdered for parts of the month), toilet roll (ran very low today), olive oil, honey, bread, clothes washing detergent, cheese and other bits and pieces.
So I went out and got a shop in. However this month taught me to shop differently. I bought what I’d run out of which was done before but there was a lot more “need” than “want” behind it. A guilt-free £40 was spent
I did go back to my wheat-free bread as I purchased cheap bread on the challenge and my digestive system suffered. Also I’m back on dairy free milk for a while as I noticed a difference there too.
Things I missed: Bananas, cucumbers, tomatoes, coleslaw, butter, honey, muesli, proper bread, grapes, mixed plain nuts. Lots of other cravings came back but I had to be strong (sushi!!)
I couldn’t go by without noticing an exceedingly good bargain though…;-)
I know, the additives, but it’s the simple things…
So I want to keep doing this if I can. Every month will have its challenges although not every month will have three weddings! Hopefully with my two enterprises I will be telling a different story.
Talking of which – this week I’ve been busy with finishing of the dog blanket and continuing with the cowl scarves.
I’ve now finished the blanket and have started the second cowl scarf. That deep blue colour is gorgeous! I’ll post the work in progress on my Facebook page when I get a chance.
Bye for now 🙂
