Money - I don't get it!

Just checked me bank balance and after next week's shopping has come out, I'll have £80 left over.

Add that to the £75 I've spent on Amazon and supplements and stuff makes £155 yeah?

Add on the £100 I've moved into B for the printer makes £255 yeah?

I can understand where the £55 has come from, cos that's been building up over the months at about a tenner a month.

I get £760 a month in benefits

Take off £330 for me bills leaves £430 yeah?

£100 a week times 4 weeks in a month is £400 yeah?

That leaves me with £30 that I was expecting.

Last month was tight so where has the £225 come from this month??

Even if I say we spent £105 a week on shopping, that still leaves me with an extra £200 for some reason!

So come on, readers of my blog... where has the extra £200 come from during July??

My morning supplement routine for the next 360 days

Calcium crunched up and swallowed first - not expecting any noticable effect from this one straight away, but it'll make my nails and teeth and bones healthier and stronger slowly but surely.

Iron next which I can swallow whole - not expecting a noticable effect straight away from this one either, but because I'm vegetarian and eat mostly frozen veg instead of fresh leafy veg, I'm not willing to take the risk of being short of it.

The multivitamin is the one I'm expecting to notice the difference from in less than a minute and because I haven't taken it for a couple of weeks, I'm hoping it'll be even sooner!

So, Calcium first then... as predicted, no immediate effect.  Not worried about that though, I never felt an immediate effect with it so wasn't expecting to this time either!

Iron - no immediate effect from that either, but wasn't expecting to.  It'll be the multi that'll have an immediate effect hopefully!

OK, so multi last.  I'll count the seconds between the time I swallow it until I start to feel it kicking in... 19 seconds - took a few seconds longer to swallow the multi than it did with the iron so it started breaking up but that was only 'cos my mouth had got used to not swallowing it immediately is all and it didn't totally break up, just detached a bit is all but it did that before too.

I love this combination because it works for me.  The multi with minerals is cheaper by a long way and it was more convenient to swallow one pill a day instead of three, but I don't need to fill my stomach with food before taking them and they don't make me feel sick for hours afterwards!

If you're looking for a good quality supplement supplier, I definitely recommend Simply Supplements!  If you want money off (10% I think but could be wrong) then just use my name (Amanda George) and email address ( when you're supplemented up and you've got them all in your basket, this is quoted from the site "You can do this either on the homepage or as you're buying from us. There is a link just above the voucher code box during checkout saying "Been referred by a friend?" et voila! Money off for both of us!

I was wrong about the referral discount on your first order using my details too... it's not 10% but double that and you get 20% off already great prices for your first order!  Go for it, I very much doubt you'll regret it!  😉

Supplements have just arrived, so...

I've waited for 5 days for them and oh boy have I been feeling it, but they've just arrived so I'm gonna take them then get on with me writing again!

If they are the same as the original ones I took, I'll be ready to go within literally seconds!  Yay!

That's the PIP assessment done and dusted

Wasn't as bad as I was dreading, thankfully.  Certainly didn't need to be up at 3am because of nerves and anxiety and stuff!

Apparently he did Steve's PIP assessment too and Steve had to answer most of the questions because I just couldn't remember names or dates or what happened when or whatever.

I'll hear what the decision is in 3 to 4 weeks, so please keep me in your thoughts until then!

That's me new phone and toothbrush heads delivered

Me new phone has just been delivered along with me electric toothbrush heads... just waiting for me supplements now!  Hope they come soon 'cos I'm really feeling the affect of not having a multi inside me!

The pup is getting groomed next Thursday

Apparently the last time she got groomed was January so she's well overdue but she hasn't needed it sooner than this!

I reckon her fur grows slower in hot weather and faster in cold... that's the only explanation I can come up with!

That's my prescription requested

Hate using the phone 'cos I never know what to say, but my 2 repeat prescriptions will be delivered on Friday.

Gonna be a busy week this week... my supplements'll be here tomorrow, PIP bod on Thursday and my new smartphone and prescriptions on Friday!

I'll be able to relax on Saturday then hopefully meet up with C and H on Sunday, shopping on Monday then that's it.

The 3 supplements will be here tomorrow, and...

Had an email from Simply Supplements at 7.30am today to say the 3 supplements have been dispatched so they will be here tomorrow and the ones that make me feel sick are going this evening... just need to remember to order the 3 instead of the single one from now on!

It's cheaper to get the single one, but I'm not willing to feel sick after taking them and it's only £45 once a year so it's well worth it to me!

Just put the multi on Freegle and bought the original 3 I had

I was just fed up of feeling so sick every morning after taking it, so I bought the original 3 supplements that'll be here tomorrow or Wednesday... I know I can take those without eating a whole supermarket's food and drinking the entire supply of squash... it's frustrating that I'll be taking 3 supplements again, but better that than feeling sick every morning and spending a small fortune on ginger beer!

Review: Opal ring

This has just arrived and I love it!  I've got small hands and was worried that it'd be overbearing on my finger, but I was wrong!  It's beautiful and fits perfectly!

The ring in the picture shows silver coloured and the description says it's black which confused me but the ring is definitely black which really sets off the blue opals beautifully!

If you're looking for an opal ring and don't mind waiting for a couple of weeks (it comes from Singapore) for delivery, then get this ring!  You won't regret it!
