I tootled off this morning to see if we could pick up some bits to try and get more organised at home and managed to get most of it all from the pound store!! Filefolder, clear pockets etc for paperwork and receipts :) I even managed to get a bargain set of boxes from the catalogue clearance shop - £2.99 for 7 and arent they pretty!!
This sweet little melamine set inside the most adorable little round carry case - £4 instead of £10!The books were 99p and BOGOF!!I also drooled over some Emma Bridgewater mugs and dishes but couldnt even begin to consider spending that much, will put them on my Birthday/Christmas list :)
We got a new bingo machine too because as of today 8pm is switch off tv time (ok so thursdays American Idol final will be an exception!). TV goes off and we play games for 30mins, read for another 30 mins (working our way through the Harry Potter books) then the boys are chosing books to take to bed so no tv then either. We should have stuck with it when we started it last time but im in a real positive frame of mind lately and really sticking to things :)
It looks like we may have the chickens sooner than we thought! We called yesterday to a feed warehouse that ive never even noticed before thats on our way home and the owners are lovely.....talked me through everything i would need and when i asked if they could order in chicken coops she said my husbands made one come have a look. Its a basic rectangle one with a run etc and big enough for 4, she said i could have it for £45 if that was ok as it still needs painting - i mean sheesh like i wasnt going to give it a coat of paint anyway! They have everything else we would need and the woman is even going to sort out the chickens for us too - she said they will give us a ring once everything is together, which could be as early as next week and they deliver too *does happy dance*
*ooh and tomorrow is 7 days since hubbies last cigarette!* If youre reading this I am so proud of you and I Love you sweetheart x
