40 Days & 40 Nights
Well the first day of lent and a time for reflection and fasting, whilst this is a spiritual journey, it will also aid my frugal journey. My particular absentence during this period is alcohol with a caveat - its my 40th birthday far too soon to mention and the only way I am going to get through that particular milestone is with a firm crutch of copious amounts of alcohol. With that caveat aside, I am going to abstain, not only good for my spiritual journey, it will be good for my health and my bank balance. Whilst I am by no means a lush I do drink approx 2 bottles of wine a week and it is a cost in these frugal times that I seriously cannot justify, so we will see how I fair over the next 6 weeks.
