Daihatsu Charade using too much oil?

I put oil in my 2005 Daihatsu Charade once per month. Is that ok?

The car is now 11 years old, so you would expect it to be worn to some degree and using oil as a result, so putting oil in once per month is not a big deal, providing it's not a lot of oil. I would keep a record of how much you are putting in and show it to your mechanic the next time you get it serviced.
