When you are down, I am always one for looking for the positives in life.....there are several finishing posts in sight now, and I am heading towards a couple of them at a good rate.
First of all, it is Wednesday night - that means that Friday is on the horizon already as we are already more than halfway through the week. Phew! Some weeks are harder to get through than others.
Second, I am now into the sixth month of my work on the phones. That means that in less than a month, I could hand in my notice with no financial penalty. I'm not going to give notice until I have another job, but just knowing that I am so close to the six month get-out opportunity gives me cause for a wee jig around the kitchen.
And third, and possibly the biggest - I have just this week finished the last unit of Faith and Worship for submission at the end of March. Now I do still have to do three Bible studies/exegeses, but I am definitely on the last lap. I've been at this for over four years - it has been both joyous and hard work, but infinitely rewarding and deeply challenging. I'm nearly done...
And tomorrow is the day when I consider my finances and look to see whether we are any closer to the savings target for the year. I'm honest with you, and at this moment in time - I don't think we will be very close to this month's target at all - BUT I have paid the cam belt bill on the car for £290 and I have put money aside for the car insurance bill, so actually, I'm not doing so bad. Put it this way, I don't owe anyone anything, thank goodness. There's some money coming in at the end of the month, so we may be able to make a late sprint some way towards the target, but it may end up more of a limp than a sprint!
Thanks for reading, folks, and don't forget the Aldi voucher tomorrow if it would be of use to you xx
