We spent £7 at the weekend which wasn't too bad. Saturday was a no spend day, Sunday was supposed to be a no spend day as Dan had to work. It was going well until the work IT system locked him out and wouldn't let him back in. So we went to the cinema to see The Big Short.
I love our cinema and hope to visit lots this year, its £3.50 per ticket, they are also part of the Meerkat Movies scheme so if you qualify you can get two tickets for £3.50. What a bargain! Snacks are cheap, the smallest tub of popcorn they sell costs 50p. Of course the building itself is no frills but who cares?
Before I met Dan I used to visit the cinema at least twice a week. Over the past decade and a half that's dropped to maybe twice a year. I hope we'll make more use of the cinema this year, it only re-opened a few years ago so we're in a use it or lose it situation. For such a reasonable price it's an affordable luxury.
Speaking of luxury, we decided to spend our change jar money on some artwork, so we've ordered two screenprinted panels. The seller has been busy with his family this month so has just started on our order. When we were arranging courier costs we discovered he lives in the next village to my parents, so we're going to save a few bob and collect them rather than have them come to us. We need to drop some furniture off with Chris, my brother who lives on The Wirral so we can have a full day out, improve the house, and get rid of some junk from the garage.
