    So debt number 2 is now paid off! Wages have gone in and I have allocated money. I have never only been halfway through the month and have over half the rent and nursery fees already saved up ready!

    Hopefully Wishing! That is the plan to get ahead of myself, although it probably won't happen for a few months as my work are changing my pay day!

    I think just being on here and posting is making me think more about my spending and I am really reluctant to spend any money now! I don't even like spending my money that I am saving for certain things!

    Thanks Coffee. I hate spending money now! I can't wait until it is all paid. I will have so much money spare a month, I won't know what to do with it all!

    Yesterday was a spendy day. I treated the four oldest kids to an hour at a local trampoline park and then McDonalds for tea. I haven't been able to take any time off work as the only other person in the office has this week off as her main holiday of the year, so I am covering her job as well as mine. But that means I haven't been able to take the kids out as such. So instead after work yesterday we went out for a bit. I hated spending the money though even though it was budgeted for!

  • That's an amazing spend! I went to the trampoline park with the boy when we had our week off and had SO MUCH FUN! I'm a bit jealous, can't wait to do it again!


    Save the extra, you've got six to go through uni :D:D

    I must admit I Was a little jealous that I didn't pay for myself to have a go on the trampolines. I think next time I might have a go. Although knowing my luck, I would injure myself on the first bounce!

    Yes that's very true about putting six through university! I do have a bit of a plan though as one day I would like to buy a house again. Not sure I'll ever be able to afford a house for all my lot to fit in, but a smaller house would be good. It won't be for many years though! But I have a plan for by the time I reach my next big milestone birthday!

  • Hey I'm just catching up with all my fave diaries. It's funny about the trampoline park because we're going next week with our 2. I went on one for my son's birthday and let's just see my bladder isn't what it was pre-kids - I wasn't expecting it LOL.
    You're doing so well , I feel like that debt must have disappeared because it's been long enough now for it to have resurfaced ?

    Oh God, if your bladder wasn't good after two kids, imagine what mine would be like after six of them! Maybe its best if I don't go on a trampoline! :rotfl:

    And yes I am inclined to believe that my debt has truly disappeared so I'm counting it as paid!

    Go on the trampolines. The worst that can happen is a little loss of dignity and lets face it, after having a child who has much of that left? I say go and jump and play and giggle with your kids - they'll remember it forever.
