    Just having a little (big) catch up on your diary MTG.

    I love how 'every day' it is. Following the little things makes it feel like i'm listening to a friend.
    an extra £9 in your pay packet is a nice surprise.

    Take care

    Good Afternoon Diary,

    I hope you guys are all keeping well :D. The weather is about to get nice again here... like not exactly cracking the flags but no rain is just a bonus :rotfl:.

    So I've had a busy week (when do I not!) and was out yesterday afternoon which got messy and was home in bed for 9 :rotfl: :cool:. Feel ok today so thats good at least. Spent a bl00dy fortune though.
    Today I haven't ventured far from bed but do need to pop to Mr T's for gravy or else out tea will be a fail. Might think about that after another cuppa.

    Thank you HHOD, SM and SA... the £9 wouldn't have even bought a drink in yesterdays bar :eek:.
    SM thats such a lovely post thank you :D.

    Need to do some ironing today as I didn't catch it coming out the TD :(.
    Other than that and cooking sausage and mash I'm not doing a right lot else!!!

    Hope all ok xx

    Good Afternoon Diary,

    So sorry I haven't been posting, life has just been absolutely hectic here with work, kids, kids activities, trying to keep up with the gym etc etc! Just catching up with last nights corrie :eek:, finances and you guys :rotfl:. Multitasking at its finest :rotfl:.

    This weekend weve not really got much on so chilling out which is much needed. Kids have had their eyes tested today and we watched DD1 play football this morning but other than that its been nice and calm.

    Just under 2 weeks until pay day, can't wait for pay day!!! Everything's getting a bit tight now all the bills have gone out etc. Have got money put to one side for DD1s birthday presents which we will probably buy in the holidays.

    Hope everyones ok xx

    Evening Diary,

    Just dragging my sorry @ss back here after nearly 2 months away.

    I had started straying from posting following my return to work in September and life got in the way.

    Then 2 weeks ago DH (now EX) dropped a bombshell which saw my whole life and what I believed to be true turned on its head. He has now left the house so its just me and the girls.

    I have lost nearly a stone in that time and probably lost quite a bit of sleep too.

    Today is the first day I feel a bit better and I've managed to eat 3 meals today. This is one rollercoaster I really would love to get off.

    The girls have been ok. DD2 has taken it the worse but they've got their strong mamma to get them through. Really don't know where some of my strength has come from. I have managed to go to work every day, keep my house clean and get them through so far.

    Anyway, I'm back! Things will be tight but hoping if I qualify for Universal Credit this will help things. I have applied today but can't see to verify myself as it keeps timing out so will try again tomorrow and ring Monday if needs be.

    Hope everyones ok xx
