So here we are then... my new shiny diary which will help me through the next stage of things financial and beyond.

im gonna write about my relocation to france, the sale of the old house, the feelings now that the debt has gone and how we plan to move on as a debt free family at last.

:)

    Hi mrscmr

    So glad you have started a new diary, will be nice to hear how you are getting on in your new life.

    You are such an inspiration. I hope you, your husband and your boys will enjoy your new life and hope they are settling in at school OK. I will be interested to hear how they have coped with moving as it might be on the cards for my girls later this year/next year and I worry about moving them away from their school and friends.

    Look forward to reading more about how it feels to be debt free.

    waves at mrsmcr. Will keep an eye on your new diary. Too much debt. Do it earlier in their lives than later is my suggestion. My then 4 year old coped far better with our move overseas than my then 7 year old did..
    I want a job that is less than an hour driving away from my house! Are you listening universe?

    Welcome to your nice new shiny diary. Looking forward to reading about your new life in France, it is somewhere I love and we thought about moving there, but my French is non existent and the husbands is rusty. The pull for us was that we could have the house of our dreams in France and I love the culture.

    Try to stay positive and embrace your new life, I recall from your old diary that you were feeling a bit wobbly. It must be strange to have lived with a big black cloud of worry and stress over your lives for so long and now all of a sudden it is not there.
    Just keep swimming!
