New carpet for my bedroom and the hallway
A new mattress for my bed
A new dishwasher or washing machine as both are on the way out
New curtains and paint for my bedroom as it’s never been decorated in 11 years of living here
I asked Paul what he would spend it on and he said either a new bike for Emmy or shoes and Jeans for himself.
I asked a few friends what they would spend it on and these are their replies:
“A nice day trip out with the kids. Probably taking them into London” says Carly – Mummy and the Chunks
Jen from My Mummy’s Pennies said “A family day out. We would pack up a picnic and drive up to the Lake District, maybe visit a National Trust location”.
While Jo (Sit still Monkey’s) would spend it on a meal for two with her husband as they don’t spend enough quality time together.
I’ve actually decided that it would be nice to put towards a holiday this year as we haven’t booked one yet – just a short break somewhere for a long weekend. I struggled with this decision as it’s not something we actually need, not a necessity and it wasn’t too long again I was having to carefully account for every single penny coming in and out of this house. It’s not a nice feeling at all and something I don’t want to repeat every again – this is the reason I am also trying to save some money to put away for rainy days.
Hair colour – once I’ve dyed my hair I often hate it until a few washes later
Steak – Leave to sit for a few minutes after cooking to release the flavour
Flowers – after a day or two when they are fully opened
If you had an unexpected £100 how would you spend it?
