Before I start, I guess I should apologise for leaving you all in the lurch about the job thing… I still can’t give any more details, but will do as soon as is humanly possible. For anyone that knows me in real life, they will understand quite how bloody difficult keeping a secret is!
In other news… I have decided to be a pampered chef consultant! I love their products, have been to about 4 parties and held 2 of my own. So, when the announcements were made and our friend suggested I could do this as a way to supplement my income I thought quite seriously – I’m aiming to use the money I earn to pay for driving lessons!
So i’m very very excited! I have my training tonight, and I have my first party next week – Tuesday night. So if anyone is in the Norwich area and fancies a party… I’m your gal!
2008 has come in to land with a bit of a bump – nothing serious, or so bad it overshadows the lovely christmas I had. But enough to stick in my mind. I’m noticing as I grow up that I’m shedding friends. I don’t like it. This new year is one example of that happening.
I moved away to Uni a good few years ago, but my parents and school friends are all still back in the Shire. I go back regularly, and until recently managed to meet up with people. But the last few months its getting harder and harder to still see people and I’m getting sick of fighting a losing battle. I’m tired of being left out, of feeling so cut off from them.
So I’m going to try and not worry. I’ve got some beautiful friends here in the Wich. I’m going to see the New Year in wth CBB and her fella, my baby sis and the ever fabulous D, as well as J and H. These are people I can rely on. I need to remember that.
So 2009, a new year, what plans have I?
I have a few new years resolutions –
- blogging more – I don’t do it anywhere near enough, so I need to make a concious effort.
- Write down everything I spend -in order to try and reign my spending in and help with the debt free wannabe stuff.
- Not buy anymore make up/smellies – I have sooo much here, I need to use it rather than let it go to waste and keep buying more, this should also help on the debt free wannabe front.
- Walk to work – nuff said!
- Lose weight – ditto!
- Drink more water – ditto ditto!
So here is to 2009 whatever it may bring, I am ready to kick its arse, and lets make it a year to remember!
I’m starting off this new blog already in bad habits! I’ve barely written anything as yet, I’m quite rubbish it would seem.
But blogging and having a home is so important to me, so I must keep on with it. I’m loving the new wordpress update, in fact, no offence to the lovely D and his blog platform, but I am truly enjoying wordpress itself.
I have around 10 days off over the Christmas holiday, and so will do my best to post regularly then. Try to form a habit for the coming year. 2009 is going to be interesting, I kinda have a lot of things I want to try and change… I need to think positively about them, but among many these include:
*Drink more water
*Sort my finances
Those all feel really massive, but equally important to me. The weight loss thing is pretty much a given – I may have signed up to be in my local paper as their weight loss/lifestyle change challenger. I was so excited to do it, I didn’t really think about the ramifacations. Now I’m thinking about them. A lot.
As for the finances – I need to try hard to get into the habit of writing my list of things I will do to either make extra money, save money etc. I have a fe challenges in mind gleaned from the MSE board that I read. Maybe I’ll see if people want to join me. I’ve also joined Bossy’s Daily Poverty Party where a bunch of like minded people will share ideas and thoughts about money saving/making and getting out of debt.
I’m posting this from my iPhone! So I apologise in advance for any dodgy spellings!
So, the title? Debt free wannabe? In the course of my day job I spend a lot of time on MSE and have picked up quite a few tips to help me look at my spending and try to reign it in.
This is one of the tips that I picked up, to look at the tiniest of things that can make a big difference, so I give you my list of things for Monday:
•going to try to walk to work
•not buy coffee
•buy a cheap lunch
I can’t think of anything else right now, but I will be back!!!
