- £73.33 at Sainsbury's for groceries and petrol for the car (big yawn)
- £1.50 for two Diet Cokes at Pret-a-Manger (yes, I am a creature of habit)
- £4.30 for lunch at Pret-a-Manger (ditto)
- £5.81 for a pack of Marlboro Lights from the newsagents
The funny thing is that I thought this experiment would make me realise how much money I waste on a daily basis. But it hasn't. It's just made me realise that my life is incredibly dull. This is my daily routine - drop the kids at school, go to work, only leave the office during the day for meetings, sneaky fag breaks or food raids at Pret (which I eat at my desk), come home, put the kids to bed, eat dinner with Alpha, finish off any work with a scary deadline, blog, go to bed.... repeat. ARRGGGHHHH.
Thank God I'm about to shake things up a bit by leaving my office job. Surely taking the freelance leap will catapault me into a life of glamour and excitement? Hmmm. Maybe. Not.
