I am finding it difficult to keep track with all the posts and have not posted myself for a while, but my pads so far are 72.63 (think that's right). Am waiting for another 66 that I am owed and that will go straight to the debts again as I feel our debts are in danger of going up instead of down

Angelic - your children are beautiful!!! Congratulations on baby Adam, he is absolutely gorgeous! I wish you all the best - and as others have said, we will always be here for support if you need it!

Hope everyone is well and enjoying the sunshine!

Do you count your minimum payments etc in with the PAD? And how do you decide what to pay each day?is it just extra money you make, or do you split your available budget for the month up and pay a little each day?
I'm new to this too, but as boysma says - it's bloomin' addictive!
I probably do it all wrong, I count my usual DD's, but also overpay now where I know I used to splurge on clothes Using my O/D, when it makes more sense to pay that off before overpaying EGG, but psychologically - it's working for me - and that's the main thing

Good Luck - you're in the right place here!

Hi obsidian and DietCokeMad

Welcome to the madhouse ..

Good luck with your payment a day either small or large it's surprising how quickly it all adds up . Some people include their minimum payments as part of their PAD others don't , it's entirely up to you . Others on here that are now debt free use their PADs to boost their savings .... ( Lucky s*ds ! )
Everybody on here is very friendly which really helps to keep you motivated ....

Hello peeps ...

Here's my Good and Bad for today ...

The Good - Paid 50 to cc ...

The Bad - Still CHOCCY bar free here !

Now for the daily food diary ...
small portion chicken chop suey
small portion egg fried rice
2 bottles of wine !
4 slices of fruitcake ! .... Oooooooooooops !

Diet wise .... A sh*te day today ! Have had an " overload " on fruitcake today , but it's all gone now !! The wine hasn't helped either ! .... So have got to be really good now for the rest of the week ! :rolleyes: ...

I spent the afternoon sitting in the garden and have now got heat rash on my arms and legs it's driving me nuts ..... it's stinging and itching ..... I can't find the savlon , what else can i put on it ?? .... I can't take antihistermine ( spelling ? ) tablets ... I'll have to go and buy something for it tomorrow .... Is savlon the best thing to get ? ....

Anyone been watching Britains got talent ? .... I've been watching it all week but when it came to the final at 9.30 pm i fell asleep for an hour on the settee and had to " google " the winner ! .... typical ! ...

Catch you all tomorrow ,

terri x ( My total PAD for today is 50 )

Good morning . . . A combination of hay fever & birds doing their pieces woke me up at an obscene time of the morning . . . Grrr !!!!!!!!

Anyways before I go get ready for a day in the park I throw 6.50 in the general direction of Evil EGG.

Be back later hopefully unburnt if I have anything to chuck in the tins . . .


Have a bright bright sunshiney day y'all

Hi Terri

Aloe Vera Gel is very good. It takes the sting out of sunburn (an other "minor skin irritations") and I've used it on the kids when they had chickenpox (called it "Magic Shrek Cream" - seemed to do the trick )

Sorry about the cake and wine - bet you enjoyed it tho .
My sister used to say "If you eat it all in one go - you don't get fat!" Don't think it works - but gets rid of the guilt for a bit!!!

MorningF_F and Cashless!
Yeah I had snoring in the earhole at 5.45am and decided to go for a run as it was such a nice morning.
Don't know what possessed me - think this thread is making me so positive, I'm up for anything!!


My PAD today is a paltry 97p

Have a good day everyone and stay in the sun, Mac x

Good morning PADpeople and little people!
The pictures are absolutely awwwwwwwwsome angelicmary
and well done for sorting out the re-sizing !
OH is snoring for surrey at the mo so I will have to gently wake him with a cup of tea but I will keep my distance til he's a bit more and not
Hope the suntan/itch/burnt bits are not bothering too many peeps this morning - slap on the old cream folks- after all -you want to look gorgeous and not old and wrinkly when the PADing turns to saving!!!!!
Not sure how much to pay 2day will let you know in a mo after a quick t break

Morning all, no pad for me today, just wanted to say hi - its such a beautiful day but DD has been up all night with earache so I guess there will be no trip to the park today :rolleyes: Ah well - just have to sit in the garden instead.

Oh, and I too have to grab the iron now, huge pile of clothes waiting for me. Better do it now so I can enjoy the rest of the day without thinking about it.

Have a fab day everyone, enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
