    The Happy Savings Fund 18th Feb 15 at 5:31 PM
    I am going to copy over all my posts about my new kitchen or lack of it!!!!

    I am changing my thread name back to a more saving focussed one so I don't get distracted.

    Addendum: I have changed the name again as I am planning to chill out now I have savings and am going to continue to save for happy times. lol.

    Dearest Upsidedown Bear, we have only just met but I love your signature and darn you do have jolly good taste in men!


    I hope we don't upset anyone if we do this? Just in case the good man finds out despite any concerns he may have we are perfectly sane and we will be more motivated to save and post if he is visible.


    Darn it I can't get a picture to appear. Madam Upsidedown Bear can you oblige?

    It's a bit silly and a lot of fun

    The idea is for people to post in alphabetical order by their username so you would be S.
    Wherever posts first wins that round (we are on Part 37) and gets awarded dancing letters by me
    We do an awful lot of chatting and posting pictures while waiting for the next letter. Do come and say hello sometime

    Bless you Upsidedown Bear, I will check it all out!


    I have been out to an event with my friends and just arrived home. I spent 12.00 on food but had a good time. ( I used to spend far more).


    I applied for a Halifax account (where they pay you 125 and then, 5 a month) on Wednesday of this week. This morning just as I was leaving all my paperwork arrived. I haven't read any of it yet as I have literally walked in through the door but I am impressed at the speed of it all!


    I am going to rest for the remainder of the day. Weather was beautiful today and not too chilly.

    Just posting good news - my 2nd fleabay auction finishes tomorrow and the item will definitely sell. So far I have made 18.99 - hurrah!
    This is worthy of a posting of my hero.



    Can someone nice tell me why my amazing pictures don't paste in. I have clicked insert picture and typed the Daniel Craig http link address but all I get is a black box with an x in it!

    Sounds like your link address is wrong somehow.
    Does it appear when you preview your post?

    Can you see this one?





    Yay to selling more things

    I was supposed to go to a meal out with work colleagues last night but I backed out at the last minute. I ate as soon as I arrived home as I was starving and then thought it wasn't going to be worth paying taxi fare there and back for a drink when I could have a much more satisfying time at home in front of telly!!!!


    I wonder how much I have paid for meals out that I haven't really enjoyed. We put so much pressure on ourselves to do this and then I used to wonder why I was broke with nothing to show for it!


    I am chilling and will do some ironing in a bit. Only 2 weeks till payday.


    Hurrah!!!!

    Who's that with Mr Bond? I don't recognise him. I would love some cake though I can't as I am on a diet!!!


    No money spent this weekend but I have just made a bid on two items on ebay. One is ten pounds and one is 99p. I will not bid any higher as i can't afford any more. I have until Tuesday and Wednesday for the auctions to finish. They are jumpers at bargain prices and would be perfect for winter for the next few years. I can justify it as an investment. Steve and Andy said I was wasting money but I don't think so.


    On a positive front I did 3 hours of paid overtime this week which I should get in the summer hols. I haven't bought anything except tea or diet coke at work so I spent under 10 at work. I am going to try not to spend this week to make up for my ebaying.


    I will not buy anything else on ebay this month. One thing a month is ok. Realistically I will probably be outbid anyway.


    Hey ho, only two weeks and two days till payday.

    well done on selling stuff on ebay but really ordering jumps for winter next year?

    well done on your savings. you can do it. you need to think about doing some really easy survey sites.

    you sound like you are really embracing this challenge, well done.

    Aesop bless you for finding out why my pictures wouldn't post. I will try again.


    I know I shouldn't have bid but I have a thing for bright colours and these were lovely and such bargain prices.....


    I will wear them if I ever meet Daniel Craig.


    UpsideDown Bear I keep looking at your thread but I cant post any moving things!


    I am going to try to post a picture now on here first. PS had a loooong day at work today. Not paid for most of it either.

    I still can't get it to work
