Word of the Week: Money

The word of my week this week is:


Thank the actual lord that we were paid this week. Seriously. I have been living off thin air and it's lucky we had some of Erin's nappies left as Ethan has been wearing them!  Tiny bottom in huge big girl nappies. Ha ha. 

December in the Conway household is a joke. It's my bday. Then Erin's bday. Then our wedding anniversary. Then Christmas. Then Ethan's birthday. All within five weeks of each other. My poor, poor husband is a broken man come the start of January. 

To ease the pain we are saving now. For December (!). It's a beaut month and I love it but I was a little bit glad it was over and we could all get back on with our lives. I'm part time now and I'll be honest money's a smidge tight.  

I went out today and brought a few bits and pieces. Oh 'twas a joy. And you know what? Nothing says pay day better than taking the kids for tea at Asda! Rock. N. Roll.

  1. Sorry this month's been hard, but hopefully all the fun last month was worth it. And February is always a better month being that little bit shorter too.

  2. For some reason I always feel so much more hungry when we haven't got any money and we're waiting for the next pay cheque, so annoying! #WotW

  5. Sounds like you've had a good day after a tough end to the month. My work insists on paying us ridiculously early in December, which always messes up January. But Feb is a shorter month too so feels like money goes that little but further and the dreaded nursery bill is a tad cheaper.

    1. God nursery is crippling isn't it? When I was full time with Erin I may as well have just handed over my cash card to them xxx

  6. Oh god tell me about it! January was tooo long! Scraping by by the end! April and May are our busiest months for Birthdays so we've just started saving monthly to try and spread the costs of birthdays and Christmas over the whole year rather than being madly skint in those busy months! SHould hopefully make it easier :) #wotw
