Mo Money Challenge - Week 22 of 52 Week money Challenge - no money and IOU in pot.

52 week money challenge
No money this week. Yes, the coffers are empty so I'm writing an IOU for the tune of twenty-two pounds. It's just being a very busy week, and frankly putting money in a plastic jar has been the last thing on my mind. So I just draw this up, you can see I'm feeling blue.

So now I'm a debtor the money jar. Can you believe that? I wanted to quit the challenge - well cut down my number of posts, but Big Momma advised it was good to see this though. Let's hope I catch you. I'm not feeling this money saving thing you know? I mean why would I want to pay this money I owe to the jar. It's a lot of cash. I feel like telling the jar 'you snooze, you lose'. Let's hope I catch up.
Money Jar  - Anna Aden
So it's now in the money jar. Some time ago, in the library, there were two teenage lads fighting over five pounds. Both laid claim to the money, one said he gave it to the other, and the other claimed his father gave it to him. Rather convoluted story. Anyway, eventually they were both chucked out for making noise. Money is serious business. So until next week...maybe I'll swap the IUO for real money, but will be double the amount plus one pound more. Not feeling this.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Film, Movie or Boxset Night: On Chesil Beach

I was haunted by the book, and I had questions to ask if I ever met the author, 'what happened to Florence?' Well, this film answered it. Still even though Ian McEwan wrote the screen play, I'm not sure. There were changes that were a nod to commercialisation but I don't think it worked. It was mostly slow, awkward and painful watching. However my question of what happened to Florence was answered, especially if you are a romantic like me. I'm glad I saw it to find out what happened to Florence but after a while it went down hill and all Hollywood. I don't know...Not a hit. Basically if you haven't read the book, I'd give it a miss. If you had read the book and had any lingering questions, though this film may be long and painful and very awkward it may answer your questions.

My sister is one of the most generous people I know, and she tends to buy things in twos - one for her and another for me. So these are five of her gifts.
