    Thank you :) I received acknowledgement but also that there is prioritising areas for demand so could be several weeks... if they even like my application that is. Then its a SET test which is numeric, written and words. Then interview and then assessment tests. So even if next round those take 12 weeks, so keeping it to myself until then xx

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Aw hurry up payday :(! 14 days and big time counting!

    I have my friends engagement party on Saturday, I have money aside for this.

    Following week I have a night out planned but going to take my car and its also the long weekend (typically weekend before payday!)

    Cannot wait to boost my emergency savings and couch fund :) plus reduce my overdraft, my mini goal is to have the overdraft gone by December :) xx

    Wow I salute your courage and determination in wanting to serve the country as a police! Nothing but respect!

    Last month I was SO WORRIED I wouldn't be getting my salary at all due to my company's crisis (just rumours) but it came just in time and no one said anything further, phew! Really, hurry up pay day!

    Congratulations to your friend getting engaged
