The Angelicscalliwags Challenge: Week 8

I'm running a bit late with my posts at the moment.  We had our yearly family party on Saturday and it's been all hands on deck!  We host the children for a garden party in our garden whilst my mum hosts the adults next door.  It is always great fun, and this year the children…

One of last week's goals was not to go shopping at all, bar our weekly grocery shop.  We did much better than usual and went only twice, but to be frank giving up popping to the shops was much harder than, say, giving up coffee.  This is on account of the snack factor.  Habits are hard…
