This & That

June 5th, 2015 at 08:01 am

Well, I haven't managed to have a proper conversation with dh yet about the catalogue. I will do it soon (I know, it needs to be done). The only thing I did mention is that any facebook sales should be split 50/50 between our catalogues, and dh agreed. I'd better get listing some items then.

I'm still working on decluttering and organising our flat. I feel like we're getting there, bit by bit. I sorted some of the shredding pile (mountain!) yesterday and found some of dh's statements. I think he might have about 6k debt, although the statements weren't recent. Add that to mine and we're looking at 14k. Ugh. The good news is that I found a cheque and a coupon.

SG starts nursery in August. We've got an induction to go to, actually on J's birthday. We were maybe going to have people over that day but they can come over the next day, if they want to.

I need to buy in some ingredients for J's cake, and a packet of balloons for J's birthday. I can't decide what cake to make, not that it'll be fancy. I did find a healthy recipe for a small cake using fruit puree.

My manager explained about the hours in the department. Her boss only wanted her to have three colleagues, but to get the job done you need four, so she is allowed to overspend by a certain amount each week. He let her have more colleagues under the condition that she doesn't go over the agreed amount. Therefore, some weeks we are asked to leave earlier than normal.

I need to decide what meals we're having next week.

I think that's all.

    I think it's good you got a little peek into where your husband stand with debt. And it is great that you planned to put FB sales to the catalogues. Of course, adding more to the catalogues by spending has to stop too (but I know you know this).

    Do you pay for nursery school or is that a public service?

    It feels like you are making great progress. Tackling the debt conversation is hard. And unfortunately, it's not a one-and-done kind either.

    Talking money is difficult, but important. And like TarWalker said, it isn't a one time deal either. It is a progress.

    A fruit puree cake sounds good. Smile
    You are making good progress Sarah!
