    Morning pap. Sorry to hear about the nightmare. Happy thoughts for tonight!

    I haven't brought any money in with me today so that I'm not tempted to buy anything. I'm really down to pennies in the bank now - unless I go into the overdraft and I'm definitely not going to be doing that!!

    Have a good day everyone.

    It was pay day for me today so I've already been online paying the (£100) electricity bill, over £200 in service charge bills, £130 in credit card repayments, and going to pay the mobile bill at lunchtime. (Quiet a cathartic experience!) Thankfully no quarterly bills due next month, so next month will be better financially.

    Anyhow, as it was payday, I treated myself to a £1.20 latte and spent £1.10 on the bus.

    Sorry you're having a rotten sleep at the moment, have the same problems myself from time to time. St Johns Wort has really taken the edge of the nervous attacks I have from time to time, plus I bought a fantastic new pillow a few weeks back which was just like the one I had in my hotel in the states and it seems to help too. Worst nightmare I had I ended up throwing myself onto the floor over the end of the bed - I woke up when I landed after the 2 ft drop on my finger (which broke!)
    Almost debt-free, but certainly even with the Banks!

    Sorry PaP about the nightmares, I second the suggestion on St Johns Wort, it's good stuff, takes a week or so to kick in, but well worth it.

    I have no cash on me today, money is very tight this end of the month. I am waiting for various payments from Amazon, ebay, Enviropone and musicmagpie, but none of them seem in a hurry to spend either! Long winded way of saying NSD today :rotfl:

    Evening all!! I had a no spend day today & will be having one for the next 9 days as i have only £25 left in my bank to last until 24th Sept! And that`s £25 left of an overdraft of £900!! I have no idea what`s happened & am panicing now a bit as this months wages are going to be a bit crappy. My mortgage has gone up £100 as my fixed rate has come to an end. Any idea`s??
