Week 1 & 2

January 14th, 2019 at 09:11 pm



DH had to do a back-up of my computer and then he cleared everything in my computer and then re-installed everything. I think my computer has needed doing that for months now. So I haven’t had time to do my spreadsheet for this year and to write a blog post for the last week.

Anyway, recent spending for the first 2 weeks of this year:

Groceries – Week 1 = $59.09
Week 2 = $72.99 – We went to the market on Sunday, got the sweetest strawberries I’ve ever tasted for $5 for a kilo and also got 2.5 kilo beetroot (with a freebie small pumpkin) for $6. Then we went to a nearby pier to buy a kilo mussel off someone’s boat for also $6. Then we bought fish and chips nearby and had an impromptu picnic by the water.

New Kettle – Our 10 year old kettle stopped working last week. So we bought a new one for $59.

Insurance – Today both our car and home insurance got paid. Car is $455.35 and home is $651.44. We managed to lower the car insurance by changing and upping the excess.

Garden – since Christmas we have been getting a steady harvest of vegetables (tomato, cucumber, beans, zucchini, and herbs). I’m really enjoying gardening this summer but in the last few days we have been experiencing a heatwave and we haven’t had a decent rain since about a week from Christmas.

    Hope you get a decent rain for your garden. That's great you are getting a steady harvest. Are you going to freeze or can any of your bounty?

    I'm getting tired of watering so I'm really hoping for some rain soon.
    I don't we will have that much to be able to do canning (not that I know how to do that).
    But I'm thinking of trying sun drying some tomatoes today.
