well its been a while
- broken internet
- laptop virus
blimey its been one thing after another here
but im back
ive missed bloggy world
So nothing major really here, still plodding on, scrimping, saving, being frugal and paying off debts
but we are all happy so no problems here
all the illness has finally decided to bugger off- thank chuffing goodness :)
such a lovely weather change to, that really brightens thing up no end
My son was desperate for some new t shirts and he had some money saved from christmas/birthday/easter and it was burning a hole in his pocket, so i allowed him to spend it on what he wanted too....shock horror he has taken a liking to R*ver I*land, he came home with 1 pair of jeans and 1 t shirt for £50 chuffing pound...thought id taught him better but i allowed him to go and enjoy his spend
yes it was a lovely t shirt but not worth the £16 price tag, since discussing with him the cost of living and the price of fashion i asked him if he'd like to look on ebay with me to see if we could find any R*ver I*land t shirts that took his fancy, i assured him they would be well washed by me and would be like new one laundered and ironed -ok mum was the answer so we looked
we managed to find 4 lovely t shirts all in the style he loved and we got the lot including postage for £12.50
one happy mum and one happy son
a mighty saving from new of £64.00 we saved £51.50
my kind of shopping
