    Having to start a fresh diary as unable to log into old one. So with only a couple of weeks before christmas I've attempted to look at starting to over pay on the mortgage which will be a squash and a squeeze but I need to do something in the new year. So I thought I'd restart the diary now rather than wait until the new year and hopefully this will stop me spalshing out at christmas. The mortage currently stands at about 80,000 and we have 17 years left.
    Cracker snaps arrived today and got chocs, so just need to source 5 (already got 3) toilet rolls,make 8 paper hats and source 8 jokes. Jokes welcome as long as they are clean. Well starting to feel tired now so off to bed and hopefully I'll be able to sleep.
