Six more weeks with a broken toe #TightwadDad 056

I have 6 weeks to go before I can do normal things with my toe.

According to the Doctor in the Fracture Clinic, it’s 4-6 weeks before I can go back to
mastering my Gold Belt Senior rear leg swing kick in my martial arts.

Or booting the bin in temper.
(Breaking the martial arts principles of Humility, Gentleness, Self-Control and Unbreakable Spirit. And my toe.)

So we’ll keep going with sharing our spending publicly, while I’m still healing.
It will help me practice the principle of Humility.

Something else I need to master is not knowing if I’m sharing these things as “I” or “we”.

It is me pushing for all this bank statement sharing, but I couldn’t do this without my family.
On every level.

I am a #TightwadDad and making my family happy with...

- FREE: Basketball with the kids before school on the Millennium basketball post outside the school gate.

- Big chain supermarket shop: Bits for kid’s cookery class.
“Why can’t we remember to get it on a day before the cookery class?
And what is Olive Paste?
Would they notice if it was missing?
I guess that’s not the point of following recipes in cookery class.
It should be called ‘shopping class’.
At least we’re learning new words.
Like tapenade.
But I’ll dock one point for our tardiness.
It is tardy tapenade.”
