I started back to work today, and had some surprising news. I work on a freelance basis, as a mentor to students in higher education. For the past 16 months, I have been working many hours a week with one particular student, however it is currently not clear whether this student will continue studying, which basically means I may have less work, and therefore less money in the weeks to come.
In one way, it might be a blessing in disguise to be able to spend more time at home, I have plenty of things to do. I want to grow more veggies this year, I have a few grotty corners that need sorting out, etc. It also means paying even closer attention to wonderful money-saving blogs like Life After Money, The Tightwad Telegraph and Frugal Queen.
I have been saving quite a bit of money over the past few months when I shop online, by mainly buying things that are on offer, as long as they are still healthy, I don't do convenience foods hardly ever. This has saved me about £20 a week, no small feat. It would be nice to have the time to go into shops, and buy items that have been marked down.
Anyway, we'll see what happens, and I will continue to try and blog on most days, so you can come along with me on the journey. Bye for now.
