    Thank you for November apple. Had a bit of a wobble mid-month but still paddling away thanks to the turtles.

    Thanks @apple_muncher for November’s challenge. I feel like I’ve found the best thread on the forum. Looking forward to joining in from the start on the next challenge.
    Pleased to report that the broken phone I sent about a week ago to one of those cash for phones sites paid the full amount quoted - £81. It’s already been sent as an mortgage OP.
    Potentially going to get a sale on Gtree too - person asking for item to be posted which I’ve never done before. Always just had collections. Not sure best option for them to transfer £ for the item. BACS or [email protected] perhaps?
    DS came home from nursery today to find a little elf sent by Santa 😉, a couple of Christmas books and an advent calendar. It was so lovely seeing how excited he was. This is the first year he’s somewhat aware of the festivities. 
    Grateful to have found this thread - see you in December fellow NSTs.

    Have just come on here tonight to cry, as I filled my car with the wrong juice - lead free in a diesel - luckily realised before I drove far. But it still cost me around £200, literally gone up in smoke. So thank heavens for Emergency Funds, but please can I go for a couple of months now without needing it.

    I am so terrified of doing this every single time I fill up.  DH drives a diesel so sometimes we swap and he has some weird thing about only having a decent amount of fuel if he is driving somewhere a long way away, so if I borrow it I always have to stick some in.  Why do they not have different shaped nozzles or a retrofit colour coded cap or something?   it's a minefield!!!
    So hugs from me too.
