I’ve been trying some new teas, from since Christmas. Pukka ‘love,’ I have drunk before, but the other two from the Heath and Heather range, I haven’t until now. I like all three teas, but the one I won’t buy again will be Heath and Heather Dandelion, Burdoch and Hawthorn. I’m not completely into this one and find I only drink now and again.
I bought myself a lamp beginning of January, from The Range, from money saved the previous month.
At night, when I am not crafting at my dining table and instead, just sitting on my settee relaxing, or reading, I just have my lamp on.
The lamp has three dimmable settings, so when I am not reading, it is on the dimmest. It’s better than my main lights and when I don’t want it too bright, but I still want to read. The bulb is a warm white, so as it gets nearer to bed, I will be slowly settling prior with the gentle light. This will work out cheaper to run as well, than my main lights.
Since January, when I had my hearing aids adjusted, the rest has just calmed down. I only have a bit of sensitivity when the washer is on, with not having a door on my kitchen to close the kitchen off. But the sensitivity is not bad that I feel I have to remove my hearing aids. The one thing I have noticed though since having the changes made, is difficulty in conversations now. Especially women. I have mis-heard on quite a few occasions. But it’s not like I can go back and say turn it up, cos of the sensitivity issue.
January month money-wise, it has been difficult, as you know, since my pay day. Outcome was more than my income. Mum helped me when my budget set for each week, was gone sooner than expected on one of my weeks, so I had food in freezer. I did not want to accept, but mum insisted, as so I touch least of my savings as possible. I am having to touch my savings a little for some bills. February I expect another difficult month money-wise and I know I will have to go in my savings again, for some bills.
Due to overtime I had at work near end of last month, which will appear in March pay, I am hoping this means I don’t have to touch my savings. I am hoping that maybe I can put some in my savings too.
I am hoping this year, will be the year of getting an additional job. I desperately need this.
My day trip to Windsor Castle is not happening now on my birthday. I received a letter with a new later date in May. A royal event was now happening that day, which meant it was now closed to the public. So now I go on the 25th May.
