Ooops I missed a post .... but not the end of the world considering we have been away for four days enjoying life in a different Welsh cottage.  A holiday chosen and paid for last year before this Challenge began.

We were really good over our weekend away and took all the food we ate at the cottage away with us.  Eggs, bacon, bread for toast along with butter and jam for breakfasts, salad and accompaniments for evening meals, snacks and nibbles to take with us for trips out.  We did treat ourselves to coffees and one meal while we were out and about but this came from our holiday fund which consisted of our birthday monies from my lovely Mum and our £25 little lottery win a couple of months back ... which we stood behind a picture on the mantlepiece and resolutely saved for our holiday.

On our return though we did need some supplies, so we called in the local shop for some bacon and some bread.  A sliced brown loaf, and a treat in the form of a French stick.  It's done us for two meals up to now, a little nibble while waiting for tea to cook when we got home, and today a third of it lightly toasted and then smeared with garlic butter and oven roasted to dunk in a bowl of homemade sop for lunch.

It's nice to go away and it's also nice to get home and back to normal.

Day 117 = Shopping
Day 118 = A No Spend Day
