    It is dry but cloudy outside. Today I am writing a letter of application and personal statement.  All i can do is fill it in and hand it in early. I am hoping this will be finished by 2, then i am planning to walk, cook a pork joint (with crackling) and then do a tiny bit of marking. I have ordered new trousers for the interview,  and a visor for interview,- in case i am called! and some lobelia, I hadnt planned to be applying for a job but it is an essential now! Cost £40 
    I have £90 left till the end of the month. 

    Try to have a minimal spend year in 2021

    Do apply. As they say for the lottery 'You have to be in it to win it'  
    Good luck :)

    Hope you managed to finish it, I've fingers and toes crossed for you.
    Roast pork is great on a Sunday and that's still plenty of money for the rest of the month.

    Application done and also i did some marking too! We had a some lovely weather today but i was too busy working! It's a relief that i have done an application and really good for my confidence. One of my friends lives close to the other job and says i can live with her to save time! OMG. How cool is that. I will see if I can go by bus though as i love my house and garden.

    Some good news, somehow i have lost lots of weight in the last week or so - probably from walking and not snacking so much, i can fit in my size 12 trousers now but i have just spent £30 on new size 14s!!! I hope today flies by. Have a good day all.

    There's be nothing stopping you spending a night or two at your friend's house, to break up doing the commute all the time. Like you I wouldn't want to do it all the time.

    Congratulations on the weightloss, can you return your new ones?
