    So today I have done something I've been meaning to do for about 3 years - I've finally set up standing orders to move the money into my various pots when I get paid. Not sure why this has taken me this long to get around to doing, often I forget to do it / move it into the wrong pot etc, so at least now its done and I don't need to worry about that anymore :)

    Our mortgage amounts are pretty similar to BBAM so it will be nice seeing them go down together - I am around £65K

    Ahh, another weekend is here - this week has been a long, crazy one at work and it was only four days. Time to rest and recharge. I was planning a nice long walk this morning but the weather is foul (again), so its an indoor day doing some betting and watching the FA Cup.

    I've done the food shopping (£35) but I did give in and buy a reduced tub of quality street :( Not good but there we go. 

    Other than that its just the usual - washing, cleaning etc ... Life is so dull right now.

    What a difference a sunny morning makes - finally it was nice and bright today, so a nice walk down the beach has blown the cobwebs away. I feel so much better and got a bit of my mojo back. I've done 3 loads of washing, hoovered through, cleaned the bathroom, taken all the rubbish/recycling out and am now about to blitz ds bedroom. 

    A few more betting bits and pieces have been done and added to the signature, that pot is building up nicely :)

    Feeling nicely chilled, 5,000 more steps to be done today, (will be done indoors now as its cold and dark), and then its a nice hot bubble bath. Time to start thinking about another week at work ...

    Another week is hurtling on by ... this week has been a difficult one at work. I can't say why but it involves a student I used to work with. Made me realise how attached we get to them. 

    Anyway, the healthy eating is still a bit hit and miss, but I have maintained drinking my 2 litres of water a day and have done my 20,000 steps every day. Other than that the housework is pretty much under control so hopefully I can have a chilled weekend. Spends today = £1.50 on milk.

    Morning all, a lazy laptop one so far here, but it looks like being a decent football weekend ahead so this morning I need to crack on with the housework and some steps so that I can chill and enjoy it later. 
     
    I did the food shopping last night so that is one job out of the way, I've been doing a few betting bits this morning, that total is ticking along nicely now, not sure what it will all go towards, maybe a nice holiday one day once things are relatively normal again.

    My gas/electric fixed rate runs out at the end of the month so I need to read up on the best thing to do there, I think its wait and see generally, but ultimately its going to be a big price rise whatever happens. I also need to fix the broadband deal again too.

    Right, lets start with cleaning the bathroom, back in a bit :)

    I got up with the intention of a walk but its been peeing down all morning so far, so I've done some jobs indoors and it seems to have nearly stopped now, so I might have some breakfast then head out.

    A couple more small bets this morning are done, I may make some butternut squash soup later for lunch, I got a portion of fish pie out of the freezer for dinner. I bought a present for my sister-in -laws birthday yesterday, I need to transfer the money from my gift fund for that. Not much else to report at the moment :)
