    So I've put my saving pot into the bank today., then transfered into the bills account. Its gone and covered all the house bills this end of month, so I don't need to touch my wages this month, seeing that my wages won't be a lot due to the sick note.

  • December.... omg what happened? I've really lost my way.. in need of major support from you guys out there...
    I've completely lost my way. Lost my vocation, lost my mojo.
    No better off, probably worse off. And feeling very sorry about myself.
    I know I've put myself in this situation and I've put my dhubby in this mess too. He must be feeling this stress now. I know I've got to get this sorted and get out of this dark hole I've got us into.
    How I'm not sure as one I'm not working, two we are moving house and three I'm awaiting a opperation now so that's probably another month of waiting and etting over it..
    We were planning a move for the better and a better life but this one sucks at the moment, I need to get back on track, but with a feeling of depression a unknowing of the opperation and christmas I wish would do one.. any help advice ( not critasisim ) please

    Don't want to read and run but truly not sure what to say other than to focus on your health as I'm assuming the op means something isn't right. As for the other stuff, it'll keep. You've made inroads before and can again. Once you've the move out of the way, why not post an soa and clever folks will tell you how to trim costs. Take care

  • Thankyou in need of direction... that's just what I need.. yes got to have a op, as and when , the sooner the better, house sale is hanging about maybe because solicitors don't want to work at christmas..
    Will sort myself out in the newyear, really fell off the ladder with reducing debts after I did so well. Xx
