    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Right guys here is my update.

    Today has being a nice one i have being for lunch with some old friends i met at my mates wake. Twenty quid in franky and bennys on a nice steak lunch and 2 beers wasnt bad.

    Re me mood wise i am up and down the worst thing is i have started smoking again :-( its being a crappy few weeks. I needed a vice or release and sadly cigarettes have being it. Tomorrow i am cutting down and i am gunna pop to home bargains to get some nicotine lozenges i feel yak smoking again, but the week before my mates funeral was a !!!! one telling friends about him, seeing him in the funeral home etc etc

    Survey wise i dropped 2.50 today from op bar that everything else i am just pushing gradually closer. Power of opinions i am about 50 points away from dropping. Prolific academic i keep checking nothing is doing, swagbucks i need another 400 points shouldnt take long.

    Well today i have the day off work so i have being productive ish.

    Gym session done project Mike O Hearn is going well lol (google him ladies lol)

    Housewife duties done

    My next 3 meals are all prepared, chicken breast with white and brown rice and spinach and kale.

    I am meeting a friend for coffee later.

    I have another date on Saturday wish me luck.

    Finance wise things are positive to i have applied for two accounts and i have being accepted on both. My flat well it needed really badly a new sofa for my lounge so i know there horrendous apr wise but i was looking in brighthouse and they had a three seater black leather sofa in for 6quid a week with insurance. Its a sofa they have had had back but if i am going to continue my driving lessons i cant afford to pull out 5-600 on furniture. I have checked i can overpay and pay it off early if needs be i get a bonus every 3 months from work.

    I have one like that at the minute which aint comfy

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=sofa+bed&client=tablet-android-samsung&prmd=sivn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0a hUKEwi9iMuhsPXWAhXLWhoKHUJ7CE8Q_AUIEygC&biw=800&bi h=1280#imgrc=2y7CG2kKamwbUM:

    I also needed some new threads for work and dates so i have took on a 200 quid burtons card. I have no intentions of maxing it i have so far spent 120. Both i am hoping if i keep my accounts upto date and my cc will keep putting my noddle score up its at 485

    Survey wise i dropped about 7.50 from pa today which will hit tomorrow, I am also very close on power of opinions 1030 points 1086 needed for drawdown. Bar that on every other site i am nowhere near.

    Yeah putting it bluntly she has had a right F on with them

    As someone who lost money with any survey site never ever do that. If the survey site shuts thats gone.

    Yes you should Seaside wow she is so so lovely, we hit it off great we went for a coffee and then an Italian afterwards.

    I apologise for the cheesey element here, but yes we ended up walking around Newcastle holding hands, and yes when we first met it was a high with a big hug. Then well we kissed and i don't mean a peck at the end of the date. And yes i am seeing her again on thursday Happy Happy days
