    Thank you Skinty, I am so chuffed to have some spare money as i usually have a high credit card bill in July from the summer !!! Although I am not doing anything much this year!

    Today I have a little bit of tidying to do and I am leaving the gardening till tomorrow. I am taking Monday and Friday off from work so a 4 day weekend with my parents. It will be so good when you can see your father Skinty.

    You are doing loads this year, you've done gardening, got your swing, had a clear out, and now seeing family and having a long weekend.
    That's a big accomplishment so far!

    Thank you MF, I have just been reading about all the job losses in retail. V frightening as they have knock on effects for the economy. My parents and brother come tomorrow. I just have a bit of cleaning to do. 

    I have transferred next months credit card money to xmas account so I don't spend it. leaving me with £70 in bank after all DD go through and £100 cash. 

    For the next four days I am going to do gardening and Chill,  with a capital C!!!!

    Hello everyone Steve and Andy came to visit, we chatted to them in between we cut back the hedges and did more gardening (12 weeks of growth). and my brother treated the garden swing to ensure it survives for longer. The weather was great - not too hot, not too cool.

    Today was spent doing much more gardening. My garden is so big and I just cant do it all or v much at all I am hoping rather than going out I will just work on this in the next year. Many weeds have gone but I can't afford to put in any new plants. 
    I made my last marketplace sale today making another £20. I only have a SAD  lamp left to sell in the winter otherwise I am a minimalist now. Hurrah.
