    :hello: Morning all, hope evryone is having a good weekend.

    well e being here just shows that I yet again did not make it to the carboot this morning. Took the dog out for a walk last night only for 10 mins and was freezing my bits off so thought it best left till another day :o

    And after all the chanting I did....I'm quite dissapointed now. But I don't reckon there would be many there in this weather so we'll see what its like next week...I am a wuss I know.

    We had a good night last night, I made a big feat all from store cupboard and tried out some new recipes, yum!

    And with it being sabbat I got to thinking about the year ahead and have decided that i'm only going to look for part time work from now on.
    All this mse activity i've been getting on with just goes to show its expensive to work full time! So i'm glad i've been doing this volunteering as irts shown me a few things.

    today i'm going to be doing more cooking and the general sunday chores like ironing school and work clothes and getting the washing done. Trying to get the most out of whats in my cupboards and if this wind dies down I might get a bit of gardening done!

    Catch you all later

    Hi Laura - hope you had a good Imbolc - we had a little bonfire in the back garden - all thanks to you as though I like to celebrate the sabbats I usually forget

    I'm sure you were right not to do the carboot when it's so cold. If you can bear to wait I'm sure you get bigger crowds after Easter.

    Well done for reaching a decision on the job-hunting - and fingers crossed a good well-paying part-time job will come up soon.

    ooh that sounds good thankyou penny.

    Well i'm back in the gym again today. Again going to try and make the most of it by doing as much internet and computer stuff as I can.

    Although this week I think its time I got off my bum and did some work that i'm actually supposed to be doing!

    So the car boot has been carried over til next week now! If it warms up again like its supposed to then i'll get it over and done with.

    Its only 6 and a half weeks til I go on holiday!!!!!! God its took some saving up for aswell. So all that extra money will soon be able to go towards my debts.

    Going to move a few things around so I can pay a bit more off this week still aiming to be sub 14k by the end of the week.

    Right i'm off job hunting,

    Catch you all later

    Morning Laura, how are you today? Don't get too disheartened about the car boot sale it was pretty cold and I can't see many people would have ventured out.
    CC2 = £8687.86 ([STRIKE]£10000[/STRIKE] )CC1 = £0 ([STRIKE]£9983[/STRIKE] ); Reusing shopping bags savings =£5.80 vs spent £1.05.Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you don't understand it and too much can give you a headache the next day J

    thats what I thought! If there's no one there to buy there's no point selling is there??

    trying to apply for jobs but I really find it hard work to concentrate on them so keep dipping between pages on here....i'm such a procrastinator!

    Shifted a few things about this morning (probably only as a means of avoiding application forms) so I can put a few more quid towards my debts.

    So now my totals are

    Loan £11332.98
    Forma £1207.99
    Overdraft £1500

    Total Debt now £14040.97

    Which means I have paid off £638.80 on this challenge. I'm still determined to be sub 14 k by the end of the week :o

    Morning everyone.

    Still avoiding application forms. Feeling really rubbish today. Put a preganany test in at the quacks this morning after tummy swelling won't go down after xmas and I haven't had a period AND my mum keeps nagging me too, and lets face it mums are always right.

    And now of course because its on my mind I feel all sick and bler _pale_ .

    And I look all pale and horrible, maybe some HM fudge will help.....

    Well i've paid a little more off again this morning £8.10 to be exact.

    So my new totals are;

    Loan £11332.98
    Forma £ 1199.89
    Overdraft £1500

    Total debt now £14032.87 which means i've paid off £646.40 so far. any other day i'd be really pleased with that.

    shopping budget is going weell spent £19.81 but bought a load of baking stuff with that so still in comfortable space.

    Trying to get some job apps done today but will probably fail miserably due to lack of commitment!

    Any inspiration welcome!
