My plans for getting out and about were frozen but, hey-ho, that gave me the benefit of
a) more time
b) spending no money
If I had ventured out I would have spent money on parking, diy materials for a cheap craft project I'm planning and a few extra items of food for tonight's meal. I may well have bought more than I planned and the trip would probably have taken half an hour longer than I estimated – at least.
Instead I've had a more relaxed day, made a plan for tonight's meal - veg curry, rice and onion bhajis (after doing a stock take of our food supplies) and put my craft project on hold.
I may be heading towards a simpler life but I still think I need to rethink my attitude to spending money. I thought I didn't have enough food for our evening meal but in fact I did. I've learnt today that I can live with less, do less and be happier for it. I need to stop myself before spending money more often – not just on snow days.
Some photos of my schlep through the snow...
it's a cold business this photography lark
time to head home

I hope you are all warm and well.
Happy Friday xo
