    Bootcamp booked £795 each for a week and then we saw an offer from our old gym near new house £120 for a year down from £200 so that was too much of a Black Friday deal to miss so both signed up. They do our favourite class on a Monday night so if working from home and we go once a week it's only £2 a class. Not bad at all plus I think we might go over the weekend especially in Winter when golf is more limited. In contrast we paid £36 a month for a gym up here went for less than two months. Very expensive mistake but there was no classes which doesn't work for us. .

    My really close friend will pop in a see the new house next weekend really cannot wait for that she lives in Cornwall so nice bonus she is around then.

    Need to do some Xmas present buying but dg and I won't buy for each other we will say bootcamp is.

    Left far too late this morning ended up crowned on the tube caught my arm somehow in the door from inside of the tube and then had to get off as I felt like I was going to faint. Took me ages to get to work and lesson learnt need to get in early no choice at all.

    Bought 1 latte today had to get out of the office but used my free voucher so :A. Didn't by anything else. Been ok food wise apart from three Oreos covered in chocolate that was bought for my nephew. This is the third packet bought for him we have eaten.

    Need to call solicitor and transfer money to them for house ready Friday will do tomorrow. Also got house mates car keys as he's going out tomorrow but we can load up his car with stuff we need at the new house. Sadly dg is working late tomorrow so I'll end up doing it all no doubt. Also total disaster lift is broken so not good for getting all our stuff downstairs. I need a heavy office chair down and boxes of records really not nice. Usually it breaks on the third floor but this time it's the second. Not good at all.

    Early night for me going in early that's for sure.

    Today was defiantly not a no spend day as I paid over the largest amount of money in my life but it's now it's with the solicitors and will be ready to go Friday.

    My Second hand office chair was delivered at new house now I had asked them not to post it until after Saturday and then I changed the delivery as soon as I got the email but guess it couldn't be stopped. Vendor was ok about it.

    I did get a latte and also an almond croissant at least the latter was from Tesco so a £1.10 saving on the Nero price. Very naughty.

    Came home moved our clubs to our friends car and then did three more trips so now my car is quite full. Dg is working late so have the flat to myself as flatmate is at football. Bliss bath done and in pjs will watch some telly after dinner.

    3 more sleeps not long now.

    Fail again on the no spend croissant and sour cream at Tesco and a latte but crap morning so needed it.

    Saw manager briefly which was nice and met some more people which was good too.

    Dg not well. Organised DGs uncle to pick up keys so all set for Friday. Car filling up nicely.

    Another latte but manager wound me up and work really got me down today. She did say out of the blue we can work from home tomorrow so I shall and sneak out early and drive down with my house mate so I can pick up my own keys. 1 more sleep feels unreal but very exciting indeed.

    I will try to take some stuff down but hard as dg doesn't want friend to come into house until she's seen it again so might need cab as it's 1.2 miles up hill.

    I will report back tomorrow.

    Thanks guys just had the call that the money had gone through now it's just when the keys are available obviously but as I won't be down until 4ish it doesn't really matter.

    Another big bonus vendor can't get rid of the fridge in the kitchen so they are leaving that. Perfect for us as we are not doing the kitchen for quite some time. Would be nice of the washing machine is there too but I doubt it. Doesn't really matter as we can wash here.

    No more sleeps just hours now.
