Spending Diary 18th to 24th of January 2021

Hi everybody, Another week in the life of Flo’s wallet. 18/01/2021 I’ve been having insomnia since Friday just gone. It’s as a result of coming off my medication risperidone. I’ve been waking up at the same times each night – 1.30 AM, 3 AM and 5.30 AM. I’ve then been struggling to fall back asleep …

Spending Diary 11th to 17th January 2021

Hi everybody! Another week in lockdown, what else is new? Let’s begin. 11/01/2021 I had a terrible night’s sleep. I woke up repeatedly and slept fitfully the rest of the time. Surprisingly I felt able to get up when the alarm went off at 7 AM. I have a long week ahead of me at …

Spending Diary 4th to 10th of January 2021

Hi everybody, Welcome to the first full week of the new year! Let’s get started. 04/01/2021 It was back to work for me today. The flatmate and I are still self-isolating as he went to get a test yesterday. We might get the results today. We are taking it very seriously and aren’t even going …

Spending Diary 21st to 27th December 2020

Hi everybody! The week of Christmas begins! I’ll be spending Christmas away from my family due to the new lockdown restrictions, so how will this impact my spending this week? Let’s take a look. 21/12/2020 I woke up at midday. Today is the first day of my Christmas annual leave. I went to bed around …

Spending diary 14th to 20th December 2020

Hi everybody, We’re on the steep approach to Christmas. Whatever way you choose to celebrate this time of year, I wish you the best. Will I be sensible with my money in the run-up to Christmas? Or will I blow it all in a fit of holiday decadence? There’s only one way to find out. …

Spending Diary 7th to 13th of December 2020

Hi everybody, Let’s see what this week holds in store for me. 07/12/2020 I had the day off work today. I woke up what felt like early for me but was 7 am, a little later than usual. Not as horrendously late as yesterday though. I did ten lessons on Duolingo which is about twice …

Spending Diary 30th November to 6th December 2020

Hi everyone, This week is the week I can finally listen to all the Christmas CDs I bought. BRING IT ON! I must also keep on top of my money and not let myself down by putting Christmas on a credit card. This week also involves some serious life adulting in the form of getting …

Spending Diary 23rd to 29th November 2020

Hi everybody! Payday happens this week, so let’s see if I stick to my old fail-safe habit of spending all my money in the first few days. 23/11/2020 I had gone to bed just before 10 PM yesterday and as a result, I am feeling less sleepy in the morning. I only nodded off slightly …

Spending Diary 9th to 15th November 2020

Hi everybody! I am still on a massive urge to spend money. I have no idea why! I also have no money. Maybe it is just a reaction against the two-week fire break lockdown where I live recently which meant all non-essential shops were shut. Though I didn’t want to even go to any shops …

Spending Diary 2nd to 8th November 2020

Hi everybody, I hope you are all well. Wales leaves its lockdown on Monday 9th November morning, but England goes into their lockdown on Thursday 5th November so things still aren’t easing in the UK. As we get nearer to Christmas I become less and less sure that I will be able to spend it …
