Having to start a fresh diary as unable to log into old one. So with only a couple of weeks before christmas I've attempted to look at starting to over pay on the mortgage which will be a squash and a squeeze but I need to do something in the new year. So I thought I'd restart the diary now rather than wait until the new year and hopefully this will stop me spalshing out at christmas. The mortage currently stands at about £80,000 and we have 17 years left.
Cracker snaps arrived today and got chocs, so just need to source 5 (already got 3) toilet rolls,make 8 paper hats and source 8 jokes. Jokes welcome as long as they are clean. Well starting to feel tired now so off to bed and hopefully I'll be able to sleep.
