Not my thing. Usually when I feel the need to lash out and pay my torso's worth for an item of clothing or a week's groceries, I don't bat an eyelid. However, it has been assessment season, exam-time, somethingsomethingness...and I went to Darwin. So, in all of this, I have probably worked three days in three weeks.
Not a good move.
In addition to that, my fridge looks a little sad and I hadn't eaten a piece of fresh bread in about a fortnight. That, and last night's 'stay-in-and-write' turned into hell after a familial drop-in shat all over my mind-space.
I lost it and sent my (currently not so) Frequent Dining Companion a text saying, "Melbourne is fucked!" At least that made it to the centre of the Earth.
So, with the cash in my pocket, I managed to spend less than fifty dollars this week at the market. That's right...I only spent forty-two. Right on the dot.
God it was painful to walk away from cheese and produce.
