    The police did not even bother to show. Left voicemail 9pm at night to reschedule, I was not going to but after speaking to Abba I will :) It could happen to someone else.

    Thank god its Friday, its pouring down which is my favourite type of weather but worried about the drive tomorrow. Will decide tomorrow morning, I really want to go but safety comes first.

    20 days to payday, 5 week months drag in!! Next weekend just have my works AGM and my niece dance show. Other than that will be a quiet one and watch the pennies lol.

    Morning. Well I tried to drive down to Manchester. I got to just at Gretna services and the floods and roads were beyond awful. I seen three bad crashes and one I do not think the person survived. The rain was worst I have ever seen. It resulted in a bad anxiety attack at Gretna services and I could not go on anymore, I waited twenty minutes and drove home in absolute fear. I could not move that night once home and slept on off drained. Yesterday was a right off as well.
    This morning suffering from tinitus, which is god awful, static noise in ear and everyone sounds like a robot.

    Got someone coming tonight to price how much it would cost to build me a fence in the garden. Just so I know how much to save. Hoping £300 (wishful thinking!) but guessing be double that if not more :(

    17 days until payday xx

    Police are coming round tonight. The other day a woman couldnt get into a space she wanted as I was next to it (but there was a car behind me so I could not move) and she got out and started punching my drivers seat window. Luckily I did not have my son but because she took pictures of my car and tried to of me I had to file a complaint as police said she could put something on fb and i may get harrassed.... great :/

    What the heck!!
    Hope you're ok monz - that's awful.
    Recently someone broke into my car. They only stole a lunchbox and an empty file I use for work. Police told me someone would be out in 5-7 days... um.. the evidence would be gone by then! They didn't end up calling me at all!

    But you're right - you should report it and speak to the police to cover your back and so they have a record in case it happens to someone else.
    Saving for:
    Emergency Fund: Complete :j
    House Deposit: On-Going
    Second-Hand Replacement Car: On-Going
    And whatever else the future brings... :)
  • Glad you made it home safely after the bad journey Monz, hopefully you will get a quiet week to recharge your battery.

    And just like that my son is back to school!!! Primary 5 :) The poor soul actually got dragged to our old house as i used to take a photo just outside it and wanted to carry that on... I have promised him though will stop after primary 7 for when he starts high school :P

    2 weeks til payday. This weekend I have my works AGM :( , then my nieces two hour dance show.... other than that will be a quiet one. Will need to buy some food thats about it really.

    Had someone come out to price what it will be for new fencing... awaiting a price still. Got another one coming out tonight also. I want to ask about before deciding and also so I know what to save lol! 25 metres worth so I think could be a pretty penny :(

    Going to catch up diaries xx

    I had in my head £300-600 wishful thinking I am beginning to think haha! Think more lines £1000 now :( Hopefully take pity on me :P

    13 days til payday. I have £90 in bank (still to receive £42.40 of child weekly benefit but that normally goes into petrol for car) and a bill due out of £28. I can manage only need some food anyway :)

    Nothing much else to add. Have a good weekend. Also its a year today my boys appendix burst and was rushed to hospital. Cannot believe its been a year, so scary that time when it all happened x

    Why not go UPVC (well at least I think it is). Guaranteed for 20 years & no painting/replacing panels required. Yes it is very expensive but once its done it is done.


    ETA try cocklestorm composite UPVC panels for the sort of thing I mean
