366 Day Penny Challenge: 90 day update

Look at that, we're nearly a quarter of the way through the year, how's everyone doing with the penny saving challenge, anyone given up yet? I'm still persevering with it although I have been tempted a couple of times to "borrow" out of my jar to pay the window cleaner! But I haven't, I will not touch it until the end of the year!

My jar is looking quite full with £40.95 already saved. I think it's time to try and copper up and deposit some of it into the bank to remove the temptation of dipping into it.

Keep going readers, it will be worth it in the end.

National Awkward Moments Day

Barely a day goes by where I don't say or do anything or be involved with something awkward, so I was so glad to learn that today is National Awkward Moments Day, so I can celebrate myself and all my awkward moments!

I could write a book about my awkward moments, but this is the future, and in the future, we write blogs. So I did and now I want to revisit some of my old blog posts and highlight my favourite awkward moments.

 There's the times where I turn up wearing the same clothes as my friends, my boss or just complete strangers at a wedding.

Then there's the awkward moments created by my son just by asking or saying the most "innocent things" at the most inappropriate time.

It doesn't matter whether I am in a supermarket, or at a funeral, awkward moments have a habit of finding me.

These are just some of the awkward moments I have written about, there's still time to be caught off guard with my skirt tucked in my knickers, or walking around with toilet paper stuck to my shoe, or even sneezing and farting at the same time whilst sat in the dining room of a B&B in Great Yarmouth, now that was awkward, but that story is for another day.

Do you care to share any of your awkward moment stories?
