The ups and down of everyday life


Unfortunately this week we have said goodbye to Sonny our rabbit, he died on Monday morning, we think the poor thing had a stroke.  He didn't look right on Sunday so we got him in emergency vets who charged us £127 and told us our rabbit was perfectly healthy.  By 8am the next morning he was dead.

We seem to be leaking money at the moment between vet bills, school requesting money left, right and centre etc life is currently costing me a bomb.  I've had to buy an Alice in wonderland dress as school are having a world book day and everyone has to come as an Alice in wonderland character (an outfit they will never wear again).  I have managed to make Pixie's outfit (the white rabbit with the clock) Peaches I have also put together an outfit for (Queen of hearts) I could have made a card costume or mouse etc for Princess but she was being arkward and wanted to be Alice so had to shell out.

We also have to sponsor them to do a p.e. thing and today Peaches brought home a letter for a school trip wanting £10.  At the moment there is £0 in the kitty for any of it.  Money does not grow on trees and were still trying to recoup what we have had to spend on the car.

If I did have any money to spare I'd invest in a freezer but that doesn't look likely to materialise any time soon.

We are currently penny pinching, so lovely readers is anybody else in the same boat?  What do you do when the kitty is empty?

Have fun
