    Hi everyone

    I'm not going to write some long, convoluted post about why I'm rubbish at diaries and keep on checking out of DFW land for ages at a time.

    Bottom line: It needs to stop and it needs to stop today. I can't go on like this and must get something done.

    So with that in mind, I'm again tackling my electric arrears, which need to be gone ASAP. Ideally by the end of the year, but I'm not sure how realistic that is. I can but try though.

    The balance is currently £1,592.44. There are 90 days left of this year (), so that means clearing just under £18 a day, plus the additional charges that will be added in that time.

    So, simple plan to do this - get as much extra money coming in as possible (including vouchers to help pay for Christmas) and stop as much money going out as possible.

    I'll try my best to come on here each day and list the positive steps I've taken towards this goal.

    Emz xx
