10th January 2020

These posts were originally posted on the MoneySavingForums (a UK money management site), I am moving my journals across to WordPress to have them in chronological order. I’m not sure how much of other people’s words I’m allowed to copy across from one site to another, so in some sections I may summarise conversations.

Hi all

Sorry I havent update in a few days, havent had much to say

Everything’s just sort of ticking over quietly

I havent got much left in my grocery budget at all, but I’m making it work. The other night I need a very nice cauliflower (lacto free) cheese with slow cooked chicken and leeks.

My temperature blanket is going well, except the fact that temperatures are remaining pretty steady. My colours are I’m blocks of 5° and except for the 1st, the average every day has been between 5° and 9.9° so I’ve just had the same colour. A few days the high was 13° but the low was low enough to pull the average below 10°

My manager has asked me to put the FA Diploma stuff on my 2020 plan because he’s getting measured on succession planning

Pro: Now I get (a little) time at work to study that isn’t my lunch break
Con: Now my manager keeps asking me if I’ve done any homework haha


Realised I never posted this on here, so it’s a bit late, but:
