    Dolly's diary....... 22nd May 18 at 6:21 PM
    Hello my name is Dolly and I love lists

    I'm going to start this new post and the first promise I am going to make to myself and you is to keep it active and up to date as I have seriously lagged with any previous attempts for one reason or another.

    So a bit about me then;

    * My name is not really Dolly
    * I am a single pringle
    * I am 35 years old
    * I live and work in sunny Glasgow
    * I LOVE Harry Potter, Harris Tweed, stationary, lists and tequila
    * I'm a family and friends orientated person
    * I'm all about the happy and the positivity

    Will be back soon with my first of many lists

    Dxxx

    I'm also addicted to Grey's Anatomy - just started watching it a few months ago after my sister practically forced me and now I'm on season 11! I'm dreading catching up to the present day... what will i do with my life? haha

    Your debt total is coming down nicely and nice to see you have some cash in your savings pots too. It's sometimes hard to strike the balance but I think you're doing the right thing by savings EFs alongside your debt paying.

    Well done on the diet day! I did terribly yesterday but much better today (so far...)

    Totally monz!

    Okay so day 1/27 on my CWP plan, 100% days before my spa day on 27th August 2018.

    Will buy a swimsuit the weekend before, not looking forward to that shopping trip

    Back to WI on Friday and hoping I can be down at 14st 7lbs by then, fingers, toes, everything crossed for that.

    By the time I go to the spa I would love to be in the 13's!

    Got about 20ish pending from Prolific which I am going to add to my Rainy Day Fund (400/1000), looking forward to topping this up when the payment clears in my account!!

    Should have about 10ish on Opinion Outpost aswell but will need to check that on the laptop when I get home, will claim that to add aswell.

    List for 05/08/2018
    * Work 9am - 4pm
    * Surveys
    * Clear out emails
    * Shredding of personal mail
    * Check CC balances
    * Top up IOU to Majorca funds
    * Stick to CWP
    * No CC spending

    Already managed a wee 3 survey this morning and someone contacted me on here for a Nationwide referral so hopefully that will be another 100 coming my way

    Don't rely on that until the money clears in my account but when it does it will be going to my RDF and EF (30/70) so it will really help!

    10 amazon voucher added to my account this morning so I am back to a grand total of...................10 spent them all!

    Will get those built back up so that I can get some Christmas pressies from there.

    I feel so emotional today, so sad and a bit lost.

    I knew this month wasn't going to be the best considering my sham-iversary is coming up but just hoped that I would feel a bit sad and and miserable on that day not weeks before it.

    Can't seem to stop the tears today.

    Aww Dolly I hope you feel better. It was always going to be a totally S*** time.
    the first time if arrives was never going to be easy.
    But you have done so well changing your life and you have such a positive attitude. But these things will sting a bit.

    Hope you are being kind to yourself. these dates can make you feel so awful. Hoping this month goes quickly for you.

    I have always thought and continue to think that you are quite amazing. Sending you hugs. xx
