Mealplan & Spending Update 05/05


I know I’m a day late for this post but since it’s a bank holiday today I snuck off to the pub last night with some friends instead of writing it.  Don’t worry, it was an extremely cheap night out – I didn’t drink any alcohol (!) so only had to pay a tenner for the taxi home 🙂 I’d never normally go to a pub without drinking anything but have to say my head is thanking me for it this morning  and hopefully it means I’ll have the motivation to get out for my first run in a couple of weeks later.
