You may recall that my goal for the month is to try a new veggie, because I generally hate them. I have radishes, and they shall be my veggie. I think I MAY have had a piece of radish long ago. But I didn't mean to and I can't be sure, so a rasish counts as a new veggie! AND they were free. Guess who's (super cool) aunty has a veggie garden!? Mine. Aunty gave me a head of lettuce and a few radishes.
* Please, someone tell me what to do with a radish *
In other news....
Saving money is going well! Our fortnightly shopping bill is hovering a little over $50 with just over a week to go until the next pay cycle. My goal was $100 a fortnight, so we are on track. And I saved $3 by getting a lettuce from my aunts garden, since we needed one anyway, and this isn't a nasty iceburg one.
We are saving heaps of money by my boyfriend taking his lunch instead of buying it. He could spend $20 a day on takeaways, and packing a lunch costs around $3-5, depending on what is in it, so there are definate savings! The only catch is that my boyfriend suffers from a condition called lazyness. Guess who makes the boyfriends lunch... I don't mind too much, gotta do what ya gotta do! I just make him a sandwich (cut into triangles. Next week I'm gonna start leaving notes saying things like 'have a good day at school'. I find it very funny), throw in a piece of fruit, a few muesli bars and something sweet like a biscuit. Takes me 2 minutes, so all is well!
I got to skype my 'little sister' tonight. She moved in England and I miss her lots! I can't wait for her to come back, she wants to move in with me when she does, but it might be a while :( We call each other sisters, but we have just been neighbours and friends for nearly 20 years. We are as close as sisters (I imagine, I actually have no relationship with my real sister). So anyways, I got to skype with her and she looks well. She is enjoying England but is homesick and was happy to talk with me for over an hour. Isn't technology awesome?
Wow, rambling blog. And I'm sleepy.
T - T - T - Thats all folks!
