One activity we did in our full day was we headed for the library to participate in the FREE Japanese Cultural Day. There was food to taste, drumming to listen to, lollies to sample, paper to fold, toys to try, Japanese writing to master and traditional dress to parade in. Dolly had a great time and I bumped into 6 friends in the short time and small space. So I was able to squeeze in some socialising too.

On our return home at 4pm, The Rambling Expat was also home after a fishing trip and was cutting up a tuna he caught. He cooked a delicious meal of tuna, onion, tomato, garlic and herbs in the wok and dished up with rice. He is not usually proactive in the kitchen so this was a pleasant and welcome change. (Click on the link above to see the playing dolphins he saw - lucky duck - Dolly is still too small to take on a full fishing day out to sea.)
Today was somewhat frugal but I did spend money... $13 at the op shop, $12 on a glass measuring jug and $7 on junk food. It's the junk food that is a huge problem with me in the last few weeks. I need to get over the terrible hurdle and be better organised and willpowered to not fall in the junk food trap.
How was your day? Leisurely or hectic? Did you keep your spending down, saving for those important things in life? Wasted some hard earned cash like me?
