    Hi Westie and all,
    I am still here. When I did my accounts after payday I transferred so much around that I didn't leave enough to make a transfer into my vs pot!!!!
    We make my next transfer in about 10 days time.
    I'll keep reading until then.

    So you now have a decision so you can send me an update form each and every time you make a transfer, or you can send me one at the end the month, or once a week whatever you find easier..

    One I get the update form Ill add it to the spreadsheet so you can then see where you are on the 'leaderboard' full list of participants...

    Well done again and welcome
