    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 .

    I agree SA. I really think this is karma being mild though, can't wait for the full brunt of it !!!
    He told me today he couldn't afford his petrol next week... oh dear! In my opinion is was when he got his fancy BMW and started trotting round like Johnny Big Balls that the problems started not feeling so big now he can't afford the petrol is he?! xx

    Good Afternoon Diary,

    Just popping in for a quick catch up. Had a very lovely and busy-ish weekend.

    Friday - popped to the next town for a few bits and pieces and then sat in the garden and caught up with the neighbours over a bottle of wine .

    Saturday - girls came back from being with ex. Chilled in the garden all day. This was very nice but a little bit boring towards the end!

    Sunday - went to the seaside with new man and all the kids. Had a very lovely day indeed.

    Monday - took the car for a wash as all the motorway trips have made him very dirty. New man came over and cleaned the inside of my car for me (he's very good to me!) whilst I mowed the lawn. Then we ended the day sat in the garden with wine and a BBQ.

    Today we have been to a local-ish park for a catch up with some friends. Was leaving early as my friend had somewhere else to be and as we were leaving some more friends were on their way in so we stayed another couple of hours with them!

    Have put a jacket potato in for my tea and the only other things I need to do is put the BBQ away, have a bath and chill out!!!

    Thats about all from me. Hope all ok xx
