I am trying to address my spending, I have made a spreadsheet that I plan on filling in each time I spend something. That way I can account for every penny that comes out of my bank in the next month. I am doing this so that I can see where money goes and then work out where I can cut back.
You can see where I have scrawled today's car park fee (dental appointment) and I have ordered our farm veg delivery for this week.

How do you track you spending, if you do?

Also this evening I have been exploring this;

I won this book in a giveaway over on Hannah's blog. I can't decide which recipe to try first, the recipe Hannah blogged about which made me enter the giveaway- homemade white chocolate spread or one of these 2;

Both desserts- my sweet tooth is really showing! I am also loving these as I am planning on giving up chocolate for lent again I will definitely need to find something else to support my sweet tooth!
I am loving this book, not only does it have gorgeous looking recipes it also tells you about the history of how vanilla came to be in so many everyday recipes, the processes that different forms of vanilla go through. I love to learn facts such as these so I am sure this book is going to occupy me for many hours!!
I am going to go and enjoy a few more pages while I continue with this;
