Approaching payday etc

March 2nd, 2016 at 05:41 am

It's payday on Friday. Nothing to brag about though, it should be called The Day I Give All my Money to the Catalogues.

It was my uncle's funeral this week. Before I went I tried to remember who wasn't talking to who, but I needn't have bothered because it was so obvious. My cousin, who is currently serving time, was even there. I gave him a hug and made sure to have a quick chat with him.

I've made a few new Facebook friends since then. I thought it was only after weddings that this sort of thing happy, but apparently it's funerals too.

When I came home after the funeral and wake, I told hubby we need to plan for our funerals. A few arguments almost happened over money while I was there. Then there were other arguments too, ranging from etiquette to who should or shouldn't be there. Everyone has an opinion about everything it seems.

My bank balance is abysmal - it's not negative but it's bad enough. We can survive till payday though, there's plenty to eat even if it isn't our first choice.

I've started to do surveys again. I redeemed 5gbp PayPal rewards and put it to bank of Scotland, even though I really should have kept it for cash flow.

    Family rifts are so hard.

    Payments to catalogues, one step closer to freedom. It is hard, but would be harder in the future if you weren't doing something about it. Hang in there!!

    Family behaviour can be so inappropriate, it's always so unexpected, best to stay neutral. I hope you health is much better. It's frustrating to have to hand over a majority of pay to creditors, whatever the source, whatever the reason. The catalogue system seems very efficient marketers that entices customers into major debt. What interest rates are charged in GB?

    Has DH returned to the workforce? What celebrations are next?

    SG you guys are making so much progress - I hope you update the sidebar after each payment, it will be good to see how you're going. I hope no funeral plans are needed for a long long time!

    Dh hasn't got a job, it's still just me working. The interest is about 30%.
