A little bit of everything

September 12th, 2015 at 09:46 pm

So I've spent some time thinking about my blog updates. I've decided that I tell more than I did way back when I first started this blog, which is a good thing because my entries were tiny back then, but I don't overshare and reveal too much.

I need to track spending when I get paid again. It's hubby's birthday soon so that will involve some extra spending and I want to keep track.

The first statement for the new credit card arrived the other day. Payment is due at the end of the month.

I still haven't done anything about Christmas shopping yet. In the last week or so, Christmas items have started appearing in the shops.

I haven't added any snowflakes to debt recently. PayPal was acting up and I'm still waiting on those survey rewards.

I will most likely be sending a parcel overseas this Christmas. What's everyone's experiences of this? Specifically, Cj, buendia and my English castle. Although if anyone else has any dealings with this, I'd be interested to hear. I'm not sure how reliable royal mail is at that time of the year.

Dh has decided what he would like me to get him for Christmas. I told him what I would like.

I'm on holiday from work now for a few weeks.

Still paying attention to counting calories. Teeny bit of progress there.

    Good to be clear about what you each want for Christmas. I haven't thought about it all, but I do have cash set aside. Smile
    Are you getting paid while off on holiday?

    I sent mail overseas while my husband was deployed. I do remember our postal service here suggested mailing at a minimum three weeks before the holiday...four weeks was probably better. But it wasn't going to Europe.

    SG, we stopped mailing packages to Scotland and England because so much money was being spent for the postage. Instead, we order things from Amazon UK or US, or a similar type website - much cheaper postage. Is that an option?

    Thanks everyone Smile CCF yes I'm getting paid, so is dh.
    Bluefemme, I never thought about that. I'm not sure. Do you mean order it from there to get it delivered to the person instead of sending your own parcel?
