Feeling cosy at home this weekend - trying something new with a 'word of the week' the kids can learn from our blocks spelt out on the fireplace. As we've lost 6 letters from our set this is quite a challenge! This week is 'home'.
Ventured out with kids and their cousins - I, above teaching Yoyo how to use her brakes.
And the all important ice-creams.
And this evening I have been balancing the books.....and it's back to the envelope system for us for the next few weeks. Essentially dealing in cash only makes you think hard about where your money goes. We use 4 categories to allocate the cash to - Food, Petrol, Clothes & Home and Fun.
We *always* end up borrowing from the Fun envelope...........
