    Hey my lovely DFW's,

    I'll be back here as a regular poster soon enough I promise, I'm gonna need you all to help me through this rather rubbish time in my life

    Wee update is that the ex husband (first time I've said that) has a new flat, he came to pick some stuff up yesterday when I was out but might be coming for the rest of it tonight.

    17 years together, 7 years married and at 34 years old that is a significant amount of time to have a person in your life then all of a sudden they are just gone.

    I'm still struggling emotionally right now and have made the decision to move back with my Mum, this will work out great as we get on so well anyway.

    No point both us us living alone 5 minutes from each other, we're gonna keep each other company and split the bills so we are both a bit better off financially

    Will be back soon with some new goals.

    It often seems that people come crawling back once they've realised what they've done, so it might do to be prepared for that as well. Sending you loads of hugs and good wishes xx

    Hey,

    I am good.

    Was snowed in until Saturday, ventured out to order my new bed and wardrobes.

    Bed will be delivered on Friday and wardrobe can take up to 6 weeks so will be all organised in my lovely room by April.

    Flat is cleaned, keys will be handed back today and no more looking back only forward from here!

    They say life begins at 35 don't they so mine started yesterday!

    Morning,

    Well woke up this morning with a coldsore and I am miserable!

    I know its not the worst thing in the world but they make me so paranoid so they do.

    In work and it is busy so just checking in quickly this morning.

    Had some surveys yesterday but they all seem so slow right now, want them to pick up so I can cash out - need all the help I can get right now.

    Sold a nice Harris Tweed bag on ebay aswell so posted that yesterday, once I get the feedback through I will put that towards paying for my furniture which cost me quite a bit but I really wanted good stuff so I bought it!

    Will try to get an update on all my survey pots and all the CC debts so I can get a proper plan in place, this calls for a list!

    I'm a DFW once more.........
    Debt total as of today is £5059.61.

    This is a combination of;

    * Car repairs, MOT and a 3 year service plan
    * Carpet, wallpaper, bed and wardrobe for my new room
    * Car finance

    I have decided to switch this all to my Barclaycard (BC), managed to get it all on 0% until March 2019.

    I would LOVE to have this all paid off by then but this will be impossible so will need to look for another switch around about that time.

    I am going to pay of as much as humanly possible though!

    I've made my payments this month, the plan now is to spend as little as possible on non essentials then whatever I have left in my bank account at the end of each month I will pay as the next months payment then just keep doing that until it is all gone!
