Money wise the realisation has hit me this week that it’s Christmas, and though fighting commercialism is still on the agenda – (no HSM or Hannah Montana under the tree this year!) I have come to the realisation that I don’t want to be stingy. This Christmas may be full of homemade craft kits which I am really excited by… but when we stood in church struggling to decide if we could afford to fill a hamper for a struggling family, and when mum and dad are faced with needing to cook a Christmas dinner 2 days in a row… I don’t want to be the sort of person who tries to wriggle out of those things to save money… basically if I don’t spend it – someone else has to and I still believe in sharing… so we’re filling a hamper – as generously as we can, have done shoe boxes and TEAM TOOMBS are cooking the Christmas dinner…!
So I was happy to submit my wages today… for a fairly decent amount – well enough to cover the Christmas dinner, a few pressies and a bit for the credit card… which is good 🙂
If I can get onto it we’ll have an update later… no idea where we’re up to!
