    I'm glad your mum is okay Sunshine, what a worry for you.

    I'm delighted you've managed to get a social housing flat as that will give you security for life by the sound of it. Lovely too that you can decorate it to your taste :). One advantage of all your de-cluttering is that whilst it is exhausting, you will move into a gorgeous flat with NO CLUTTER :).

    Feeling a bit down with the moving today, so much so that I haven't done much at all . The cooker came today and I cleaned the windows , my mum was a big help as well . I still feel as though I have lots of stuff to pack .

    Am going to have a fairly early night and get back on track tomorrow.

    It can get like that. Almost like there's so much to do, you don't start anywhere. It will be worth it though when you move in, and think of the money saved. What lovely holidays you can book with it all. Plus the commute to work being shorter.

    I try to do things like that to motivate myself. xx

    Life is one big plate spinning exercise at the minute. No idea where I am up to with money , just that I keep giving it out! All a means to an end.
    Tomorrow I am forgetting about house moves , packing lists and other stuff. GS and I are off to York for an overnight stay. He is very excited as am I . I have drawn the spends out of my holiday account , everything else is already paid for. We have snacks and drinks for our journey , plus raincoats.

    Off to bed soon.

    We made it back and a had a thoroughly good time. Yesterday we walked 15234 steps, round the railway museum, minster, and Yorkshire museum. Today was a boat ride and Cliffords Tower. I love York , so easy to walk around. Have spent money but all in budget, we will be getting some of our train ticket money back as well. Feeling revitalised and focused on the move. More boxes have gone today and the cupboard of doom is almost empty as is the airing cupboard.

    Payday tomorrow but not touching it until Monday .
