Glad to see a shiny new diary. I've got one too at last.
I'm on the look out for YNAB as cheap as I can get it and can't wait to get started. Want to start at the beginning of next month.
Missed being on here with all the lovely people. Take care xx
Sorry I've been AWOL and looks like I have missed out on what a fab time its been for you....I am pleased
YNAB tends to be on the cheap for a week or two in January! Although it's always worth saving money, YNAB, when used properly can save you more than you spend on it, so I'm not sure if it's a false economy to wait for it to reduce in price? I did wait, and I actually regret it a little bit because I'm so aware of every penny now, I wonder how much I've frittered elsewhere in my bid to save.
I'll pop along to see if you have a diary shortly and say hello.
Since my last update, man from the car (Michael) started to text me, but it was quite hard work to get any chat going as his messages were never more than 4 words and he was always at work so couldn't phone! We made plans to meet up the Wednesday just gone, but by the time he'd sent another "Hello x" message on Sunday I'd just had enough. The beginning should never be such hard work. So I ignored it, and have heard nothing since! We're obviously not compatible so very happy this has just tapered off with no drama.
Thursday man from the tube (David) took me out to lunch on Tuesday. We met and I was pleasantly surprised in how nice he looked and how happy he seemed to see me. He'd chosen a lovely vegetarian restaurant (he's not vegetarian and didn't know I was so I found that incredibly considerate), and while sitting there I felt like the only person there as he was so attentive. However, there was absolutely no spark. None at all. I've been guilty of trying to create a spark in the past, but I know that ends badly for all concerned. As we left he said he'd absolutely loved every minute of our time together and wished it wouldn't end, and then said ..... "let's stay in touch"!!!! Is that a little odd? Anyway, he sent a text the next day asking when we could do it again, so I replied saying what a great time I'd had, how lovely he was but that I just hadn't felt anything romantic between us. I got a lovely reply and again, no drama!
The perfume I've been wearing is the Molecular one! It reacts to your natural body chemicals so it smells unique on each person. Not sure I can recommend it in helping you meet the right man though! Just random, brave strangers!
Then I'll report back on my finances and signature.
Not much else to report. I'm at the radio again today, but I'm still training so I'm letting my trainee do the whole show this afternoon as she's very keen to learn as much as possible. Next week I have a new lad starting his training who sounds painfully shy so I'm trying to work out how to approach him to give him the best chance. I deeply admire how he's prepared to put that shyness aside to try to be a presenter so I want to make sure I'm a positive force in that for him. I'm always incredibly patient when training, and I think that's probably the most important thing to start with?
Lists, I need lists again! I'm not focusing properly! I need to sort out YNAB, prepare the radio chat and then I'll come back here and update properly with what I've missed.
Good luck with your trainees - you sound like a totally lovely teacher :A, it's very kind that you recognise how shyness may affect someone.
Now I have to go and google Molecular perfume... and remember MT, third time lucky so watch out for handsome strangers

I've started my new budget and, once I can get it to synch with my phone then I'll be away. That holds me back at the moment as I don't want to keep having to log online every time I make a purchase or a DD goes out that needs consolidating.
As lovely as that perfume is, I think there's a bit of trickery with it as neither of those men were remotely compatible! There could actually be a 3rd time lucky, but he's not yet had a chance to smell the perfume (and he's not a stranger)!!!! It's really early days so I'll update when and if it looks like it could go anywhere. He's on holiday for 2 weeks so we're just chatting over text at the moment.
I'll pop over to see your diary shortly lovely Rosa! xx
The plan for the rest of my day is to eat something! Then get on to more decluttering! I managed a fair bit yesterday but on reflection, not as much as I should have. So today I will hit the books and get rid of them. I'm being pretty ruthless at the moment so that's always the best time to declutter.
