    Mummytogirls - taking the scenic route 29th Jan 18 at 7:49 PM
    Evening Diary,

    Well there seems to be so many diaries being deleted at the moment I have decided to start a new one to try and preserve my history on here.

    My first diary can be found here: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=2311479&page=265

    So I started in March 2010 and it hasn't always been an easy route but weve managed to pay off quite a bit of our debt and we stand at 6069.37 today. We probably could have paid the debt off my now but we are enjoying our life (taking the scenic route) with our two girls (now aged 11 and 9). They are growing up too fast before my eyes, wish time would slow down a bit.

    So feel free to join my ramblings... usually about my MSE ways, what I eat and the all important pegging out in the summer .

    Good Evening Diary,

    I hope everyone is well, sorry for the lack of updates just hardly get on my laptop nowadays.

    Lovely to hear from you DFOD, hope all is well with you.
    Thanks everyone, lovely to see messages from you all .

    So to update I'm just really enjoying my life at the moment. New man has met the girls (can't remember if I told you guys that) and we all get on really well. We have met his children too and all is going well. He stays here a couple of nights a week now and we always do something good on my Friday nights when I have no kids here. I was never unhappy with ex but new man has shown me there is so much more to life. I am really happy, never thought id hear myself say that ever again, especially as I was so guarded after what ex did to me. I have minimal contact with the ex which is just for the best. He brings out the absolute worst in me!

    The divorce is going through and once we get to decree nisi stage we can agree finances and get the house up for sale. I was looking at taking on the mortgage but it would have stretched me too much and I want to be able to have a life and be able to go on holidays etc.

    Still got 3 days off work so thats good!! Then full steam to the 6 weeks holidays!!! I hope all ok xx

    Evening All,

    Sunday evening already.. good job I've got another 3 days off !

    Thank you DFOD, HHOD and PLMBL. HHOD I've often thought myself that he has done me a favour!

    So today me and the girls went bowling.. had a 50% off voucher so only cost just over 8 . Also took delivery of a free H3llofresh order! Wouldn't pay for it but would pay 2.49 delivery for 3 meals .

    Caught up with housework and just spent 2 hours deep cleaning my kitchen. Ive never been able to reach on top of the cupboards but found a way today and my god they were awful! So glad they're all done now.

    Both girls are in their bedrooms as DD1 is back at school tomorrow so we need some kind of routine back. I am just catching up on here whilst watching Hatton Garden.

    Hope all ok xx
