Living on a pension

Yes well I am trying an experiment for a week – I’ve been asked to do this alongside various other people including an MP. Looking forward to see how THEY cope with no expenses allowance he he. After my allowances for water, heating etc however my pension has SHRUNK to precisely £34.17, for seven days. So forget about haircuts, drinks, clothes, books, theatre, cinema or anything fun.Today I spent £3.50 on a pumpkin, an aubergine and some veg, with a tiny bit of rice. And made pumpkin soup (lunch) and pumpkin curry (supper). In between I went to the library and read some papers. Hmm. I think I need to go to that book launch tomorrow night, as at least I’ll score a couple of glasses of red wine there.
