    Goodness you have had an eventful September. Fingers crossed your DH gets the choice of both jobs and that the interviews go well on Tuesday. I like your 5 year plan. No idea how old you are but don't ignore pensions when you are in a position to sort those out.

    Thanks ES.

    Pensions are sorted, we've always had one each, although DH's could do with improving.

    Hi diary,

    October is not going how I was hoping it would and I have been AWOL from here due to work.

    First of all, DH is still on the look out for a new job. He has a second interview today with one that he saw last Thursday, this one looks promising....he's in panic mode that he's not going to have anything in place before he leaves his current employer. Keeping everything crossed that he will get something...I must admit that I am slightly worried too but can't tell him that.

    All CC's were paid on pay day and pots have been updated.

    LTW have gone out of the window this month, I've been based on site then called to help at HO and then back to site, so all my good intentions have gone and I have lost count of where I was with my target.

    Meal plan is going ok so far.

    No surveys have been done, so I will try and get at least a few done before the end of the month.

    No news on me going permanent with the company, so it has been agreed with the agency that they will put my CV out again, although I'm not in any great hurry.

    Gas and electric bill and the car taxes, I checked online and we can't get a cheaper deal....was worth a check though :)

    DD enjoyed her Big Gig with the Guides and slept in late Sunday morning. I ended up waking her up at 10am :eek: Not like her :rotfl:

    Catching up on Wannabe's diary has made me realise I need to plan for Christmas :eek:

    My online savings account is looking healthy for that, I need to pop into the bank to set up my current account as the PAYEE...a drag but the bank insist as it is a security measure!
