Sing is sista... I'm so sick of watching the pennies. I live for Groupon and Grabone deals. If it weren't for them we'd never get out to dinner and feel part of the human race and get out of the house :o0 I'm always trying to look for ways to do things on the cheap n' cheerful, or it's a night in watching our downloaded tv shows. It sucks but I'm sure you'll do a lovely job on your own hair. Have you a friend who is handy with a blowdrier who might be able to work some magic?

I hear ya ladies. Am self-employed and haven't brought home any money for three months :( Thankfully DH is able to cover the bills but I'm pig sick of it at this stage. I'm down to a €3 bottle of red from Lidl every week (I used to 'splash out' on the €5 one :o0 )
