    The life and times of Dolly......... 2nd Jul 17 at 12:55 PM
    So I wanted to start this new long term diary as I want to put down some plans in my head & feel that this is the best way to do it.

    I am going to split my goals up a little, some will be never ending but some will come to a close when I meet the goals so here goes...............

    Lifetime Goals
    Debt free - ONGOING
    Get to 10st 7lbs - ONGOING
    Save our home deposit - NOT STARTED
    Pay off our mortgage - NOT STARTED
    Save for retirement - NOT STARTED
    Take a world cruise - NOT STARTED
    Retire and enjoy life - LONG WAY TO GO YET!


    Neverending Lifetime Goals
    Pay for Christmas and Birthday with surveys - ONGOING
    Save a 6 month emergency fund - NOT STARTED
    Save for home improvements - NOT STARTED
    Save for holidays - ONGOING
    Stay at 10st 7lbs - NOT STARTED
    Save the smoosh - ONGOING

    Just had a wee team lunch there.

    We were supposed to be going out on Friday night but have decided to cancel as a few can't make it.

    Actually quite glad because due to some last minute Christmas and Birthday gifts to pick up this month I have £120.00 to get me through until January 2018

    Will be a struggle but just got to be done.

    I have written a list of everything I need to pick up over the next few days then that is me finished!
