Live Below the Line: Day 3 Special Birthday Breakfast!

While I am still living on £1 a day for the Live Below the Line challenge, I saw this as no reason to deny myself a special birthday breakfast this morning.

Look, it’s a pitta bread with birthday cards around it!

Don’t forget to sponsor me for living under £1 of food and drink on my birthday!

I was going to have pitta bread with beans and sausages as a special treat this morning, but I’ve subsequently realised that I’ll be much better off saving that to make a crazy student style pasta dish with later in the week! Ah well, fish, potatoes and peas tonight – woo!
