Pippi's Diary, 2024 edition.....

Hello folks
Back again after a long break to get some focus as I change jobs.....long time no see! 

Off to do a budget! 

I seem to have lost my mojo so starting with the MSE love to find it all again!

Haggis says Hi too.

    Hello I hope you're well too and the family - Haggis is just back from a beach walk, he's grand although 13 how did that happen? We are OK a few ups and downs, an empty nest now visited by grandbabby no 1 and no 2 on the way any day. 

    Must get back into those MSE ways! 
  • Hello to you too!

    Pippi!!! Hello & welcome back! I think this year feels like a good one, potentially, for people to rediscover their money-saving mojo. I hope you find that yours comes scampering back as enthusiastically as Haggis!

    I hope it is a good one Foxgloves, so lovely to see you on here too, hope you and yours are fine. I really do need some enthusiasm and a bit of scampering won't go amiss either! xx

    Pippi!!!!! How utterly spiffing to have you back 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 LOVE your MSE diary 🥰🥰🥰

    Glad you are leaving a vexing job xxx and hopefully the new one will be filled with cheerfulness and frolics and cheese 😁

    Good luck with your NSDs. I am rubbish at those too 😂 Although I seem to have finally mastered the art of meal planning so maybe there's hope for me yet! 😂😂
