Hey everyone, how are your weekends going so far?
Heres my smiles & frowns for the week!
-My prize from Charlotte’s giveaway arrived on Friday – can’t wait to try them out!
-Yet again, I found I had more followers – thank you so much!
-Had contact from Laura from A Daisy Chain Dream about possibly becoming penpals, can’t wait!
-I’m being treated like a princess today! S is currently making me Chicken Curry for dinner in the slow cooker, with naan bread & poppadums, and he also found the time to bake some fairy cakes – YUM! Will get a picture up as soon as possible.
-As some of you may know, I am doing anything to up my savings at the minute. I have found a great number of survey sites etc, and I am doing well currently. I know plenty of you are dubious about these kind of sites, but I have been using sites such as Toluna for a few months now, and I have cashed out twice – so I do think its worth it. I will be posting up about the different sites I use over the next couple of days!
-Talking about money, I bought a Gordon Ramsay book from the 99p store the other week. I happened to mention to my friend Dunk that I was going to put it on Ebay once I’d read it, and he asked me how much I’d sell it for.. I told him that I’d start it at 99p – and he gave me £2. I told him to take it back (he wouldn’t), but now I’m £1.01 up on the book haha! All going towards my savings!
-The Cheltenham Gold Cup was on this week, and me, S, and my parents all had a few bets. S was the luckiest though – his horses either won or placed in the top 4, so he came out massively on top…Yay! I’ve told him he has to take me out for dinner now with his winnings 😉
-Having three days off in a row from today – pure bliss! I definitely needed some time off that wasn’t just one day, hehe.
-As usual, I’m moaning about money. Yes, I know I’m trying to up my savings but until I do so..it’s still going to be a problem.
-Missing my friends. Plenty of my friends have moved away from the area, and I find it hard to get to see them, what with work, money and travel situations. I would love to see them much more than I currently do.
Well, today my smiles outweigh my frowns which is amazing 🙂 What good or bad things happened to you this week?
