My 2013 challenges are:-
1) Watch one old film each month.
2) List five items on Ebay each month.
3) Have a date night with Mick each month.
I chose a Marilyn Monroe film for September, Bus Stop. I can't say I'm a huge Marilyn fan but I enjoyed watching this film. It's a romantic comedy with a simple storyline which seems quite dated now, but still very watchable. It's not one of the best films I've chosen to watch this year, but it certainly isn't the worst.
My Ebaying is going well and I'm managing to sell most of the things I'm listing. I'm not making a huge amount of money doing this, but it's getting rid of some things which would only go to the charity shop or be passed on to someone else, so any money I do make is a bonus and it all adds up. It will be interesting to see the balance of my Paypal account at the end of the year.
Mick and I went for a carvery for our date night. We both love Sunday roasts, though we don't often cook one on a Sunday, I usually cook ours on a Monday, so it was nice to go out for this type of meal. We both had both beef and turkey and a selection of vegetables. We had a voucher for 15% off both food and drink, so it worked out very reasonable.
It's going to be a busy weekend, we've got last minute university shopping to do tomorrow as well as a food shop for Daniel, and a party tomorrow night for our friend's son for his 18th. Sunday is the big day as Daniel heads off to university. It's all very exciting.
