So it's been just over 2 weeks since I finished my challenge, I'm kinda missing the whole blogging thing, and I'm actually struggling to spend a lot of money :/
I now seem to have something in my head telling me not to spend a lot of money, and to budget constantly.
It's been lovely flashing the cards around again and it's amazing to be able to go out when I want and spend money on eating out *mmmm pancakesss and smoothie*.
I am also SO glad that Coca Cola bought out their 125 year anniversary coca cola bottles AFTER I finished my challenge, because although they're only £1.99 each at Selfridges, delivery costs are £4.95! Oh...yeh...btw...I collect coca cola bottles :/ sad I know, but I love them!

Home-Start Guildford helps parents build better lives for their children. Trained volunteers provide practical and emotional support to parents with at least one child under 5, who are struggling and who may be suffering from post-natal depression, illness, disability, bereavement, isolation, multiple births... or just not coping. With your help, we can give parents the strength they need to do what has to be one of the toughest, but most rewarding jobs anyone can do. We can help them to be the mums and dads their children need them to be. Parents supporting other parents: a simple idea that really works!
