    Dolly's diary....... 22nd May 18 at 5:21 PM
    Hello my name is Dolly and I love lists

    I'm going to start this new post and the first promise I am going to make to myself and you is to keep it active and up to date as I have seriously lagged with any previous attempts for one reason or another.

    So a bit about me then;

    * My name is not really Dolly
    * I am a single pringle
    * I am 35 years old
    * I live and work in sunny Glasgow
    * I LOVE Harry Potter, Harris Tweed, stationary, lists and tequila
    * I'm a family and friends orientated person
    * I'm all about the happy and the positivity

    Will be back soon with my first of many lists

    Dxxx

    I might re-evaluate nearer the time

    My mum is about 9st 7lbs and is around the same height as me and she looks good so I'm aiming for a wee bit higher than her.

    I want to be in a healthy weight range so that is 10st 10lbs maximum so I've got some wiggle room.

    Hey peeps,

    So I came into work today to some good news for a change.

    I am getting 2 payrises this year!

    This month will increase by an extra 1,300.00 per year then in October will go up again by another 700.00 per year!

    I worked out on a little calculator that I will be getting around an extra 115.00 a month from this month then and extra 155.00 a month from October .

    Called the Glasgow Credit Union today and increased my DD so that the money is going straight to savings!

    I will be sensible with my money from now on!

    Dxxx
