Things have already been feeling very Autumnal this September in Falkirk. It’s getting chilly, wet and windy and, as they say, the nights are fair drawing in.
Financial status: September is always an expensive month because we tend to set insurance, broadband, TV licenses and any changes to utility providers at this time of year. Wherever possible, we like to pay for the full year ahead because it usually works out cheaper in the long run, but that does make things a bit tight for a while. Oh, and we went to Octoberfest as well. Safe to say I am skint.
Mostly wearing: An extra layer or two. Already! September has been decidedly chilly in my neck of the woods. We’ll be putting the heating on soon for sure.
Mostly eating: Brunch! Rhys recently pointed out that I brunch a lot. He is correct. I would brunch more if I could.
Mostly drinking: Coffee, but not pumpkin spice lattes because they taste of air freshener and artificial sweeteners. Don’t @ me.
Mostly buying: TV license, home insurance, line rental, all that boring stuff. Also German beer, which is at least slightly less boring.
Steps taken: ~400,000
