Budgeting for Xmas


I do love Xmas - I'm an atheist, but I think in a cold dark country like Ireland, it is great to have a festival/feast in midwinter, with lots of good food and some drinking and spending time with family and taking a break from work and merriment and warmth and laughing and all of that.

The belt has been tightened in recent years though. Much as we love to splash out, we need to be careful with the cash.

So today I am sitting with a spreadsheet, working out how much the dinner will cost, and the presents for various family and friends.

Oh well, at least once it is done we'll know where we are financially.
