  • Thankyou.. yes I used to post daily, it kept me motorvated to carry on. This last year has been evil, I lost myself as well as the road to debt recovery. I am probably worse off now, this coming year I am taking hold of myself and will get myself back on track. Post daily and continue to look for bargins.
