Jump Start January: Tenner Week: Day 6

Today was a busy day work-wise and I didn’t make it out for that fancy coffee in the end, but I did buy some milk on the way home. I bought the best value carton rather than the cheapest, and spent £1. My plan for the rest of the day was to use up my remaining screen time by watching a DVD, and have a dinner-and-a-movie sort of evening in with The Beau.

We went for Kill List in the end, because it’s had so many rave reviews. Not really my cup of tea, although it was fairly realistic with the gore, and I found it a wee bit on the pretentious side. Guess I knew too many people at university who wouldn’t shut up about The Wicker Man. So that was my movie for the week, and I’ve run out of telly.

Dinner was good though. We had baked fish and chips and lots of mixed vegetables, washed down with a nice bottle of sparkling wine that we got free with the other wine we bought before Christmas. I saved a glass to cook with tomorrow as well. Seeing as it was the weekend I made some dessert too: pineapple slices and glace cherries grilled with Cointreau and brown sugar. Quite a 70s throwback but tasty all the same, and one of your five a day. Shame we didn’t have any ice cream to go with it.

Tomorrow is my last day of Tenner Week, and I have £4 to go crazy with. Decisions, decisions…

Do you have anything left out of your original tenner? How are you getting on?
