    Morning all, my weekly update of 633.11/1680.28 this will be my final update for the month although I will post next weekend to keep in the swing of it. Thanks Amara for this thread. It keeps me accountable and makes debt busting almost enjoyable.

    Hi everyone!

    Still nothing from me, but I'll pay in something very soon. I'm staying in whole weekend, I'm not spending money, so it's moneysaving already . My DH is trying to persuade me to get a puppy. I'm reluctant, as I'm afraid cleaning will be left to me and I'm not sure about long walks.

    I love dogs but didn't get another after my lovely border collie passed away 2 years ago. Been tempted but such hard work and I found I had nearly 3 hrs spare a day without one. Still go out for walks but now without dogging bags. Still might get another dog, but not at the moment and not sure I could face the puppy stage again. Good luck Amara if you go for it.
