    Thank you so much you wonderful people. You've really helped to ease my nerves. I guess this is starting to feel important to me now and I don't want to lose it! Maybe healthy insecurities? If there is such a thing!

    Sam, thank you for your lovely message, as always. Jackpot lady really made me smile! :D

    Rosa, that picture is brilliant, thank you! I love that Sam has introduced us to the world of Twitterpation. Hopefully you'll be getting your own Twitterpation on holiday!

    Tinkerbelle, it is daunting, but it's hopefully a new turning for you and an exciting one at that. Keep us updated here, and let us know when you start your diary.

    Thank you everyone for the good wishes for Tuesday! 3 more sleeps! EEK!

    Financially things have taken a little turn today! I haven't seen much of my Mum recently and she's having a hectic time with her house, so I took her out for breakfast this morning. I paid £10 and she put in £1.30 as I didn't think I had enough change.

    In other news, much more clearing! But now my house is a shambles and I'm being picked up so I need to get cleaning for now! I have filled my bin up again and most of the charity bags are out of the way, so it's a good time to get a fresh perspective on where I am with it all.

    The radio show went much better than I expected. My shy trainee turned up and announced he'd had little sleep due to lots of work so didn't want to go on air! But that would be another boring 2 hours for him just watching me so I asked if I could just introduce him as being there, which he was ok with. Because he mumbles I gave him an interview before our show started, well, I gave him 3 interviews to try to get him talking clearly and loudly enough so when we went on air and did it he was great! So much so that I kept writing little bits out for him to ask him to say on air. He announced a couple of songs and told me about music his Mum likes on air so I was really excited for him! He said he felt great at the end and so I'll let him do a bit on the desk next week. The station manager wrote me an email sounding excited that he's on air already! Yay to new trainees pushing themselves out of their comfort zone!

    We have a fund raiser tonight and I have to say I find large social occasions really difficult. I'll be going, as it would be rude not to, but I'm not planning on staying very long!

    Right, I'll catch up on a few diaries and then be on my way! Thank you again lovely people, you really help to keep me boosted.

    Sam, that song is amazing. Thank you! I love it. A bonus being it features Lauren Aquilina. I've seen her a couple of times live on the London club scene. Thank you for sharing that with me. MTx

    Terrible day financially, although all still in budget. I spent £67 on a week's shopping bill! This is the problem when I buy emergency supplies most of the time. Although I guess it's the equivalent to my one monthly big shop and then the rest are top ups!

    I had a lovely afternoon at a friend's house and it was another friend's birthday and he was there too. Lovely food, beautiful company and some fun and games along the way too!

    Two more sleeps!!!!!

    I've submitted my shop & scan, although my receipts don't seem to be submitting. I think they can see when I've attempted it though so I'll see what emails they send me tomorrow.

    Have a lovely evening everyone and Happy New Week too!

    Oh Sam, we sound like we're in the same place financially. Hopefully you're better aware now of your contactless payments and where you stand for the rest of the month.

    So, first date tonight with Mr 3rd Time Lucky! We decided not to see each other yesterday as he was busy sorting things after his holiday! Then we ended up speaking on the phone for over 6 hours and he got nothing done that he needed to, and neither did I! Feeling like a teenager at the moment! From an immature level too! Who stays chatting on the phone for 6 hours these days???!!!

    On a good note, I got my hair done yesterday and my stylist kept commenting on how soft and shiny my hair is now! Loved hearing that as I spend a fortune on getting my hair looking so healthy! It's my nicotine and alcohol! Nails have been done too (see, I'm being very wasteful) and had gel on, for the first time ever! It's lovely knowing it's not going to chip at any moment!

    Have a lovely Tuesday all! MTx
