Budgeting is hard sometimes, you spend half of the month living like royalty and the rest of the month pinching pennies. Still though there's something so nice about that first weekend after payday, where you feel like the sky is the limit. So if your bank account is looking a whole lot healthier this weekend, why not splash out with a treat or two?
Treat Your Mammy
Nothing says 'I love me Mammy' as much as afternoon tea. If you haven't seen her in a while, call her up and tell her you're taking her out for a dignified afternoon of lovely food. Go a step further by leaving the car behind so you can both have a glass of bubbly!
Treat The Kids
Get out of the house, and bring the kids to Malahide Castle. There's plenty to do with a tour of the castle and rose garden, woods to explore, a huge playground and an Avoca Café for whenever you're in need of sustenance.
Treat Your Significant Other
Organise a trip away in a few weekend's time. Not only will it give you both something to look forward to, but when the trip comes around the money spent on accommodation will be a distant memory so you can buy all the mojitos you want.
Fancy yourself as the next Marco Pierre White? Prove it. Enrol in cooking classes at the Dublin Cookery School and start making that dream a reality. Just don't get too good, or else you'll be expected to cook at every party or gathering from now 'til the end of eternity!
