Possible NSD

April 29th, 2011 at 06:47 am

My plans are simple today: go to my mum's and watch the Royal Wedding. I wasn't born when Charles and Diana got married so it will be nice to see William and Kate. Everywhere I look there's wedding souvenirs, not that I've bought any. Every magazine cover is all about William and Kate, particularly about how much weight she's lost. Anyway, I'm just looking forward to seeing her dress.

I'll need to wrap my mum's birthday presents later.

All in all, a no spend day planned Smile

We're still here. I phoned the housing association and the woman said we would be waiting "a substantial amount of time" then asked me if I'd considered private let. She also said that we needed 300 more points to get to the top of the list. I'm going to make an appointment to meet with a housing officer from our local council, see if that will do any good.

Hubby decided the day after the argument that he couldn't stay at my mum's, he thinks they would argue all the time. I just want out of here so I'm trying to start being more active concerning moving out, it's like I just came to a standstill. I'll stop moaning from now on and do something about it.

One little thing

April 22nd, 2011 at 12:51 am

It was my day off yesterday. I put the washing on. I hung ALL of the washing out. I hoovered upstairs and downstairs. I took the dogs out. Twice. I brought all of the dry washing in. I tidied. I filled and emptied the dishwasher. Do you want to know what I didn't do? I didn't thoroughly clean ONE frying pan before I put it in the dishwasher. This clogs the filter, apparently. Big no-no. The second I got in tonight with hubby MIL made it perfectly clear that we weren't following the house rules.

If you want to live here, you follow the house rules.

To be honest, I don't really want to live here. We were talking about either moving in with my mum or declaring ourselves homeless. We haven't decided anything yet. One thing's for sure: the sooner we're out of here, the better.

I don't usually leave it this long between updates. Oops.

Not that much to report to be honest. I set myself a budget of 10 for snacks etc for my packed lunch. I have just over 2 left and that has to last me until we get paid again (two weeks on Friday).

I worked seven and a half hours extra at the start of the month. I'm working on Saturday (5 hours extra). Hubby's working too so I thought I might as well make some money out of it. Plus, it get's me out of the house.

I'm going to phone the housing association on Thursday. I meant to do it last week but I didn't have the house to myself. People have been telling me that we need to let them know that we're still here; we still want a house.

April goals

April 1st, 2011 at 07:03 pm

I completed all of my March goals. However, I did end up taking money out of savings. I suppose it's better than using my credit card. At least I can replace the money and benefit from it in the future.

I've been trying to think of realistic goals for April. For April my goals are:
[]get overtime
[]pack 100%

It's Mothers Day on Sunday. I redeemed my rewards from my catalogue (23.13) and ordered my mum a bunch of flowers and chocolates. It only cost me 1.87.

It's my mum's Birthday this month. I just need to buy her card, I've already got her presents in. We're treating my mum to a takeway on her birthday so will need money for that.
