Mix Up

July 24th, 2014 at 04:56 pm

Hubby went to work this morning and found out that he's not back until next week. So I've got him for an extra week. He obviously got his dates mixed up, I just hope that it works out ok pay wise.

Tomorrow is pay day. Or rather today even. I checked my bank balance and it's not updated so it obviously doesn't go in at midnight (It's 1250am here) I wonder when it will post?

I remember in school my friend's (ex) boyfriend used to go to the pub and spend a lot. Then at midnight he would withdraw money when he got paid. More spending. All I want to do is pay a few bills while JI is sleeping.

I can't wait until CC1 is under 1k... Hopefully by next month. I don't want to get my hopes up. (My sidebar isn't accurate so it's not too much to ask)

Okay I'm thinking I might just try and go to sleep now since I haven't got any financial news plus this post is all over the place.

A Little Update

July 22nd, 2014 at 01:52 am

I'm going to refer to Jason as JI from now on. These are his first two initials, just like I refer to SG.

JI is doing well, and SG seems to be getting used to having a little brother (I think) She likes to try and help out, we let her put nappies into the nappy disposal bin, she likes doing it. She will also shout "baby! Baby!" and come running to the kitchen if he is making noises, or crying.

Hubby is back to work on Thursday. I've had it good this time; he took his two weeks paternity leave which he was entitled to and took three weeks holiday.

We've had two takeaways since my last post, but we've not been back to the cafe. I've got an online grocery shop coming this afternoon. I managed to get a delivery slot for £1 which is the cheapest you can get; it'd cost me more to get the bus there. I'm going to attempt a meal plan for this week. If I do another online grocery shop between now and the middle of August, and spend £40 or more, I will get an ecoupon for £20 off my order of £40 or more in the middle of August. I can spend £40 on nappies and formula alone.

We've got three more payments to make on our Christmas savings vouchers. We'll get them in October I think. I need to order a Christmas stocking for JI; I ordered a personalised one for SG about this time last year because it was in the sale. I want to get it before people start their Christmas shopping and prices go up.

update - three weeks later

I'm writing this on my phone so sorry if there are typos.
its been three weeks since J was born. I'd like to say that there has been no unnecessary spending but I can't. We've ordered takeaway twice - both tines it was my idea. We had enough leftover for dinner the next day. Also we've had lunch out at our local cafe twice.
I'm finding it difficult to get simple things done around the flat, so I know I need a routine. Life is just hectic.
