Just got back from a wedding reception. Cash spent today totalled £35.40: £20 contribution to a wedding present, £15.40 on drinks. Considerably less than the average £800 that it costs guests to attend a wedding. I didn’t enjoy it anymore or less because of that saving, but it certainly made me feel more relaxed knowing that I didn’t feel beholden to having a good night because I’d paid out enough for one. I also wasn’t worrying about how much it was costing, allowing me to simply be. Be me. Be myself. No pressure. It felt good.
