    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

    Hope you managed to go home and get some rest, had a nasty viral cold recently and it knocked me for six - took two weeks to feel even vaguely like normal. Look after yourself.

    Jeezo it's been ages since I last updated, sorry!

    So what's happened since my last update;

    * Got my divorce papers on Good Friday
    * Been busy with work
    * Still saving
    * My brother hasn't been too good, he had a stroke last week!

    Back to regular posting now.

    Paid the following to savings;

    * 200.00 to H2B ISA 01.05.19
    * 400.00 to Disneyland Paris fund 01.05.19
    * 140.00 to Credit Union 01.05.19 - Payrise straight to savings

    0.10 away from a 25.00 cash out with Onepoll. Just got a 10.00 Amazon voucher so could exceed this goal!

    Facebay sales - sold 1 item which is a M&S jug with flowers, meeting the lady tonight so if that happens that's 20.00 which I will add to my savings.

    SBCC I am still using too much, paid off 132.00 to that yesterday. Been spending too much on coffees, lunches and dinners out. My brother had a stroke so we have been spoiling him this week but I'm nearly out of funds so that will have to stop.

    I'm trying to stop being such a chunk, work in progress

    beanielou - It's hard isn't it. I just seem to keep making excuses after excuses but it has to stop.

    He's just exactly the same, weakness all down his right side. Physio has been to see him so it's just seeing how long it takes to all go back to normal if it ever does.

    Thanks both of you.
