    So this is yet another diary. When am I going to learn?

    In fairness I am frugal in most things but I am also very skint.

    For those of you who are meeting me for the first time. I am a single Mum of 2 teenagers. DS is 15 and DD is 19. DD is an apprentice painter and decorator and DS is a computer geek. They are my life and 'most' of the time I adore them. I work full time but am trying to get a change of job just now as I am fed up and want a bit more money. I have an interview on Wednesday so we will see what happens with that.

    I was doing fab with debt reduction and then very sadly my Mum died and I lost my way a bit. Recently I went on holiday, got new central heating and new flooring throughout my house and have managed to increase my debt by about £8k this year. I am sick about it but am not going to dwell on it. I prefer to just get on with it and sort myself out.

    I will bore you to death with my ramblings along the way but this time I am yet again determined to succeed. I loathe paying interest so I will complain a lot about that . So hang on to my coat tails as I am ready to fly

    Old diary is here-
