    well I've messed up my over time at work so need to come up with a way of making money.

    Basically I'm a band five nurse but do extra shifts as a band three support worker, as I tend to do alot of the shifts in a secure hospital and there is no way a want the responsibility of running those wards for the little extra you get as a qualified nurse, the medication they are on for a starters is mad.. not like the youngsters I normally work with. Anyhow the bank have decided that I can only work as a qualified now :mad: so I need to re-think how I'm going to make some extra cash, it's so silly cause I couldn't sleep at night on Thursday worrying which is daft because I make enough on my salary to make ends meet nicely and the extra is to make over payments, so worst case I will be mortgage free seven years from now still three years early.
    But! I really want to make some headway and try for five years, so after my holiday on monday I'm going to look at making a budget and sticking to it something I've never done.

    well I'm back from a lovely few days in London, day trips and meals out were so expensive think i started to grate on little brother with my 'how much?' comments in the end! spent a small fortune but I did kinda plan this as a last splurge now to attack this debt and excess weight .. I appear to have gained rather a lot of one kinda pounds whilst spending alot of the other kind :( Working overtime today and tomorrow then another two days next week ( the maximum they will let us work is 7/8 days a month this tomorrow will be my third).:D

    You should tell your brother that he can pay for you when you visit him, and you will pay for him when he visits you! You don't get a London salary after all...

    lol good idea but to be fair he does tend to pay for most things.. I have to force him to let me pay, and tbh there is a lot more to do in the big smoke than around here, but I like your way of thinking ;)

    good morning world!

    MY dear diary, today in order to help me on my road to mortgage freedom i am going to do the following
    1) walk to the gym (2.5 miles, and it's raining!) whilst there have a shower .. saving money on the ellici bill ;)
    2) stick to diet plan, put on rather alot of weight whilst at brother's house and have all the food I need so make it a NSD.
    3) make PPI claims for the very old accounts I have on the off chance I paid it :p
    4) Resist using the last of my money in my account to make a further overpayment as I don't get paid for another two weeks and should something unforeseen occur I would have to use my costly overdraft.. but ohhhh it's so tempting ha!
