    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 - COMPLETE - 21st December 2017
    Get to 10st - ONGOING (started Cambridge Weight Plan 2nd January 2018)
    Save our home deposit - NOT STARTED (first deposit 1st February 2018)
    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 - NOT STARTED
    Save the smoosh - ONGOING
