Double Yolk Day

Today, for the first time in over 30 years of cooking meals, I broke open a double yolk egg. And do you know what, I was inordinately made up about it! That wasn't the only good thing that happened today either - I have six listings on eBay and three have bids. Now I've got to be honest here and say that two bids stand at 99p each and one is £1.25....and that the three items together initially cost me £3.98. So technically I'm not in profit yet - there are watchers though so I am ever hopeful. The third good thing is that Big Man finally seems to be warming to the idea of frugality. I have told him that there will be an amount (one that I think is pretty large) for wine in the budget. The problem has been that until now Big Man like me has wanted to be debt-free. Unlike me he hasn't been willing to give anything up. I am hoping that this is going to change from now on. It's not going to be easy but if we're doing it together it might not be quite so hard.
