A little late for my morning update .... Sunday "off MSE curfew" now moved to 9.30

My glass of wine turned into three so I had a little trouble getting going today Need to get a couple of bits today at Mr T that I forgot yesterday. I started using S*re Maximum Protection Deodorant about 6 months ago and it's brilliant !! But because it's 5 I switched to a cheaper one .... That's rubbish (false economy) just found a 1.50 off voucher that expires today so I will go and get the S*re one today

Put 1.80 in my 20p coin pot and 1 x 2 in my sealed pot (this is for my Christmas fund next year Also found my recent pay slip and after checking it properly , my employer loan stands @ 900 now !!!! Must have not checked properly before so by end Dec it will be 800 - finished in end Aug !!!! I will then leave the deductions still coming out as a saving scheme - as I haven't missed it until now ?

Right , tea & toast then on with the day - lots to do and by the time I come on later , I want a tidy , hoovered house , beds changed , washing done & put away and bank checked and spending diary filled in for today ..... I MUST DO THIS !!!!!

Well, it's taken me the best part of 24 hours, but I have finally finished your story lol
I have to say well done coco, I've followed your story through and I'm so glad you have *hopefully* come out the other side intact.
I found your story incredibly inspiring, and I'm now off to subscribe :-) xx

Hi Honey

Bless you , thanks for your lovely post
I kind of feel like I have lost my MSE Mojo a little of late .... I am sooooooo tired now , I am counting the days to the Christmas Break - 11 more early get ups

But, I will be back with a vengeance for 2013 - I have a lot I want to achieve and a lot of debt to clear next year, above all I want out of this house - and I am absolutely determined to do it

Thanks again - nice to have you on board

Morning Coco - Happy Thursday... Hope all is well? So this is 10 more early get ups for you i am sooo jealous..on day 11 as you wake up later and chill in bed with a cuppa, think of us all freezing de-icing the car/sitting on the motorway or listen to our boss panic as he realises we only have said number of days to hit our numbers... Or failing that feel very smug and think mmm cant be bothered today...thats what I would do..

Anyway you must let us know when operation " hottie" will happen..I am sure you will need some type of grocery by then..lol.

Catch Up soon xx

Yes, its Friday again. I have no idea how the weeks pass so quickly.

I'm looking forward to a beer with friends tonight.

At least this week I've been at home all week, the first time for quite a while that I haven't been away for all or most of the week.

Visiting the great metrollops is fine once in a while but it's good to be home.
One by one the penguins are slowly stealing my sanity.

Happy Friday

9 More Early get ups !!!!! not that I am counting

A small household disaster earlier .... Nothing major but my budget blasted by another 100 I wasn't expecting. I need a plan , maybe a 2nd job , maybe eBay queen , maybe I can blag a pay rise ... Will give it some thought.

Nothing much else to report today, too busy at work for lunch break and I bypassed Mr T on the way home so a NSD by default and a random dinner of "what's left in the fridge". Going to have a glass of Friday wine and get to bed earlyish and think about money tomorrow.

Coco x

Ps nice surprise - when I got home tonight the house was in darkness .... When I went into sitting room the boys had got the tree down and decorated !! It looks really pretty Bless them

Ah thanks Sista 9 ..... To......go

Secretly , I am just waiting for the new year now - fresh starts and all that ! Yes bless them on the tree ...... I much prefer sitting room by Christmas tree lights as you can't see the untidiness and grubby carpet as much by nature , I have definate OCD tendencies .... I just don't have the energy for it though !

It's a beautiful day here - icy cold & sparkly

Need to go to dreaded Mr T later - and we have a small sleepover tonight - I need to learn to say "no".... Still as long as they don't keep me up all night with the noise I don't really mind.

May make a start on sorting/shredding the paperwork sat on my kitchen worktop tonight. I have to start somewhere I suppose !
