I have been spending a bit of money this week. I was pleased with my earnings this month and felt like I could afford to treat myself. However, there is now a lot less money in teh current account than I thought there woudl be. Partly due to the fact that the credit card bill was higher than I predicted and there was a council tax payment that went out. However, I will hopefully still be able to pay a chink off the mortgage but I will just not have to buy myself anything else for a while.
