    Mummytogirls - taking the scenic route 29th Jan 18 at 8:49 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 .

    Just having a little (big) catch up on your diary MTG.

    I love how 'every day' it is. Following the little things makes it feel like i'm listening to a friend.
    an extra 9 in your pay packet is a nice surprise.

    Take care

    Good Afternoon Diary,

    I hope you guys are all keeping well . The weather is about to get nice again here... like not exactly cracking the flags but no rain is just a bonus .

    So I've had a busy week (when do I not!) and was out yesterday afternoon which got messy and was home in bed for 9 . Feel ok today so thats good at least. Spent a bl00dy fortune though.
    Today I haven't ventured far from bed but do need to pop to Mr T's for gravy or else out tea will be a fail. Might think about that after another cuppa.

    Thank you HHOD, SM and SA... the 9 wouldn't have even bought a drink in yesterdays bar .
    SM thats such a lovely post thank you .

    Need to do some ironing today as I didn't catch it coming out the TD .
    Other than that and cooking sausage and mash I'm not doing a right lot else!!!

    Hope all ok xx

    Good Afternoon Diary,

    So sorry I haven't been posting, life has just been absolutely hectic here with work, kids, kids activities, trying to keep up with the gym etc etc! Just catching up with last nights corrie , finances and you guys . Multitasking at its finest .

    This weekend weve not really got much on so chilling out which is much needed. Kids have had their eyes tested today and we watched DD1 play football this morning but other than that its been nice and calm.

    Just under 2 weeks until pay day, can't wait for pay day!!! Everything's getting a bit tight now all the bills have gone out etc. Have got money put to one side for DD1s birthday presents which we will probably buy in the holidays.

    Hope everyones ok xx
