Finishing posts

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

Aldi voucher - I've just bought a Daily Record and there is no £5 voucher. And it wasn't advertised on the front of the paper as it usually is, so please check inside paper before buying it. There are other Aldi vouchers for money off certain items but of no use to me. Maybe the Daily Mail will have one.

@SusanM - oh, that's a pain - and not fair! Can't imagine why they haven't done it in the Record this time. Have seen it in the Mirror today on Extreme Couponing's Facebook page so there is one out there, just a shame not in your paper too.
