    This might just be my favourite Vix Meldrew post to date! Genuinely lol’d. I think this is such a good idea. I definitely need to learn to say no more in 2017, a bit like the social breadcrumbing – I’ve wasted energy on seeing arseholes who aren’t really my friends and I don’t really like because I didn’t want to hurt their feelings. Also, giving more fucks about saving money and losing weight 🙂 xx

    I think I’m gonna have to pick up a copy of this for myself, it sounds as if it’s given you a major kick up the arse!

    I LOVE the idea of this Vix – life is seriously too short and the world is out there for all of us!

    This post has given me the kick up the arse to order this book before I have some sort of melt down ? Will get back to you with my fuck budget.

    I loved this- I saw this book in a shop months ago and meant to pick it up. This definitely looks like the kind of budget I can do. I wasted so much time invested in people who didn’t think twice about turning on me or making life unnecessarily difficult.

    (Also I can’t even imagine how sucky it must be to spend your first Christmas without your mum especially when some family aren’t interested but for what it’s worth you handle everything amazingly)

    Really think I should pick up a copy of this book and make this list! Sounds like such a healthy to do for 2017

    This is epic! I am most certainly picking up a copy of this book, there are far too many things I give undeserving fucks to in my opinion. I shall rid myself of these fucks with immediate effect!

    This is absolutely brilliant and something I completely need to do! I’ve always worried about the stupid insignificant things that really it’s worth two shits so I feel completely inspired now!

    Also I do hope you had a sort of nice Christmas, the first one without your parent is always the worst and one I found out last year. x

    I *need* to write my own fuck budget, right now, this instant! I related to so much that you wrote, here’s to a 2017 of giving less fucks and really focusing on what matters!

    Love this post and am definitely getting the book! I agree with your work fucks, I’m a first year teacher and it’s killing me all the extra stuff! Need to take a leaf from your book!

    Oh my god so true about teachers and time off. I feel awful being off because the kids go mental as you say and there’s always so much to catch up on- but this year I’ve finally decided that I am no good to anyone if I’m ill and I don’t give a shit (or a fuck which seems more fitting here!) what anyone says if I need time i need time!

    Love this whole post and your blog in general!

    I definitely need to do something like this. I like to think I’m a laid back person but I can worry and whittle about the smallest of things when really, I shouldn’t give a fuck. You’ve inspired me lady and I hope 2017 brings you so many wonderful memories and experiences!

    I bought the book a few weeks ago and still haven’t had to chance to read it but I actually think that tonight is the perfect timing to dive into it, what an awesome way to end this year! Loved this post so much 🙂

    Absolutely love this!! Like so much!!
    Totally with you on the social breadcrumbing. I’ve tried so hard to keep people in my life since I became a mother, but they can’t see that I’m still basically the same person just with a tiny human to care for! So fuck em!!!

    I need to get my hands on this book! It is definitely something I need in my life, and a way to really open my eyes. This post is great and is such a good way to put into focus of what is and isn’t needed in life!

    I absolutely love how brutally honest you are, it is completely refreshing

    Was on the edge about this book but now I’m going to snag it! I need to come up with a fuck budget and I have a feeling it’ll look a lot like yours.

    I love this book so much. I genuinely do think it has changed my life or at least how I look at my life and how I prioritise the things I spend my energy on

    I’ve seen this book everywhere and might have to pick it up now! I really focused on prioritising the things I actually want to and should care about about halfway through last year after mental health getting the better of me and it’s been bloody brilliant.

    I meant to get this the other day and was torn between this and her new one because I totally need to learn how to give less fucks and also get shit done! hahaha! LOVED this post!

    LOVE this list! I keep seeing this book pop up everywhere! It is like the new Hygge book! Might just have to take a look. My dad died on the 26th December so I think it is the perfect time to give less fucks about what other people think of me.

    Great post Vix xx
