Money Saving Tips
Spring forward? Yeah right! Daylight Savings Time (DST) falls on 30th March this year, and I'm already preparing myself for a miserably short day of sleep deprivation (it could be worse of course; poor mums wait all year for Mother's Day and when it finally arrives they end up losing an hour of sleep when the clocks go forward!).

Our usual Wednesday morning blog from The Man About Town hasn't materialised this week because the blogger is somewhat exhausted having battled Man Flu for the last couple of weeks. Now, my sympathies go out to the male half of the human species because until recently, you've had to suffer not only man flu but other incurable male-only diseases (such as the inability to put things back where you got them from). And my sympathies also to all the women out there who have to live with said afflicted person.

A single man in London who likes to spend, but who likes to save even
A long, long time ago in a land not so far away it used to
be the case that I could eat and drink whatever I wanted and maintain a body
that was more Johnny Depp than Johnny Vegas.
But, as the years go by and the metabolism slowly grinds to a halt, there
comes a time in a man's life when he has to face the facts – notably, if
something isn't done soon I'll be rejected from internal flights in the
USA (if you know what I mean).
The cold, harsh fact that I'm cultivating a beer keg is
accentuated by summer and the layers of clothes that conceal any excesses are
no longer available to wear. I know the
weather's not been great recently but it's not cold and, fingers crossed, the
UK summer will start sooner rather than later which means exposing one's self
to the rest of London and, more importantly, London's female population.
You can look at summer in two ways - beautiful blue skies, warm sunshine and an abundance of colour laid out by our country's natural foliage and abundance of flowers. Or, sunburn, heat rash, insect bites and hayfever! Whilst the latter may be less than enticing, it's a fact that just about every Brit will suffer from one or another in their lifetime so, as the warmer weather approaches, get your medicine cupboard in order so you're fully prepared for whatever the summer throws at you.
First things first. Before you update your medicine cupboard you need to
give it a good spring clean. Check expiration dates on lotions, potions
and medicines and anything that's past its sell-by date needs to go.
(And remember, medicines can be returned to any chemist for safe disposal.)
