Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st April

What a week it has been! For a change I haven’t managed to schedule this post at least the day before. We have had a really rubbish week. Between my injured eye, having tonsilitis and having to wear a 24 hour blood pressure monitor I’m pretty sad about my health this week. However, just to top that off Daisy had a febrile convulsion on Wednesday which was a terrifying few hours for us. Still, I’m not one to dwell so I’ve been looking forward to thinking about some of the good achievements of the week. This week has been a good one for frugality at least. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st April post.

Our Purrfectbox Review

My regular readers may remember that recently we received a Purrfectbox for our cats, Izzy and Jazz. We’ve been cat owners for 6 years now, when we received Izzy. Jazz joined us 4 years ago and they’ve been almost silently hating each other ever since. Despite this I still buy them lots of treats regularly and I never give up on my quest to make them friends. Playing with new toys regularly can keep my girls from fighting overnight. This makes for a better sleep for me and a more harmonious life for us all! Today I’m sharing my Purrfectbox Review with you and talking about this subscription box service.

This is Izzy. Izzy can destroy almost any toy in 2 minutes or less.

Living Arrows 16/52 – A day off together (at last!)

Recently my husband has been working a vast quantity of overtime shifts. While the extra money is always nice we don’t need it. Also, I’d rather have my husband home than have extra money. I know he feels the same. However, sometimes in life you have to just suck it up and get on with it. This means I’ve been doing all of the childcare alone. It also means that my husband has barely seen Daisy for the past fortnight. I’ve been good at going down the allotment without him and just getting on with it. However, I have missed my husband lots. Fortunately we had Saturday off and half of Sunday too. So that was nice! Our Living Arrows 16/52 post is now live!

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said that you can find here. Parents are invited to link up weekly and share photos of their children from the previous week. I love taking part and I’m looking forward to looking back at the end of the year.
