My Sunday Special blog posts include my spending report, life and blog related news and updates on any challenges I set myself to accomplish. I try to post them every Sunday to review my week.
Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend.
I am still recovering from the cold I caught a couple of days ago. Despite this fact, I managed to catch up with a friend of mine at the trendy Meat Market in Covent Garden on the Saturday night (Yes, I’m enjoying London’s dining scene again! Could I be more excited?) and make an extra £65 this morning by selling one of my possessions! Sniffing and coughing, you cannot stop me!
I cannot believe it is Sunday yet again. Why do weekends fly by so fast? I have got two very busy weeks ahead of me as I will be looking for a place to live. Well… my sister and I will be looking for a place to live along with my best friend. So, it’s the three of us, and we have teamed up to find a perfect apartment. No more sharing with total strangers! It is going to be just the three of us, and we are going to be one happy family! 😛 We have a couple of viewings lined up for the following week and we could not be more excited to start the search for our dream apartment. We are, of course, working on a tight budget. We don’t want to pay over the odds and we are looking for the cheapest (but at the same time the nicest) place to live in central-ish London. Do you think this is possible? 😛
I had secretly hoped to throw £1256 on debt repayment this month to bring my total debt figure down to £9999 (how cool would that be?!), but with the move to a new place this will not be possible! Oh well, I guess it is time for me to admit that sometimes life takes over, and I cannot control and schedule everything that is going on in my life. Sometimes, the unpredictable happens and I just have to suck it up and deal with it. I will still be throwing quite a bit towards my debt as well as saving up for my short trip to Slovenia and Croatia in November and NYC/South America in February next year. Another thing that I need to start thinking about is my trip back to my hometown in January next year. I would like to save up for gifts for my family since this year I will not be celebrating Christmas and NY with them. I have not decided on my gift budget yet but since my family is not very big I don’t think it will exceed £200. I will start saving up next month.

I have not done my usual Sunday grocery shopping today as I still feel a bit poorly and since it is raining outside I decided to stay in. I will probably do my grocery shopping in the next couple of days. Surprisingly, there is still plenty of food in my fridge!
I have to say that I am glad I had more than enough money in my bank account to cover unexpected medicine expenses. I bought the best stuff against cold and flu there is and it felt great to be able to spend this cash without worrying about my bank balance!
I cannot wait to share some exciting news relating to my blog! Make sure to check in on Tuesday to find out what it is! 😛
How has your weekend been?
