Maths question

100k words written over 4 weeks is 25k words a week yeah?

25k words written over 5 days is 4k a day, yeah?

So it's 100k words in 25 days?  Or is it?

I hate maths!  lol

Dental phobia

I definitely need to see a dentist again because not only do I have half of one tooth but the filling in the tooth behind it came out last night too!


I'm seriously thinking about getting a full set of false teeth/dentures instead of my natural ones.  No more chipped teeth, no more fillings and no more pain.  It's expensive (£500 for a full set) and I would need to still go to the dentist and brush my gums and tongue but hopefully that would be all I needed to overcome my dental phobia.


Not a good start to the day! :-(

I woke up at 7.15am and came downstairs, almost fell off the toilet, then Steve's carer came to the door and Steve put Mitzi's lead on, I came in here and took it off.  When Steve's carer went I put Mitzi's lead back on her and saw that Steve was in the bathroom but hadn't closed the door.

When we eventually got out on Mitzi's walk she did everything she could to trip me up then squatted down for a poo... she was constipated.  I brought her back home and went to get a nappy sack and the long handled pooper-scooper and went to clear it up.

It was almost welded to the street.

When I eventually got it up and into the scoop, I put the nappy sack over the scoop like always and tried to empty the scoop.

The nappy sack wouldn't come off so I shook the scoop and bag together which didn't achieve what I'd hoped, it just made the poo come out of one of the handles so I let go of the handles and as soon as I did, the nappy sack fell to the floor and Mitzi's poo all came out and the rake bit fell over and onto the pathway.

Almost the entire bag of poo came spilling out.

Which put me into a foul mood.  Again.

When I eventually re-bagged all the poo and binned it I came back in and washed my hands then took Mitzi out again to finish off her walk.

Just as we were almost finished, Mitzi started barking and whining and pulling at her lead.  I looked and saw a cat so I brought Mitzi home and gave up.

It's only 8.41am and I've already had enough!

I've been eating out of habit and boredom, not because I'm hungry, so...

... I need to get out of that habit and my belly will shrink!

How do I know that?

Because I've just asked Steve what we're having for tea even though I'm not hungry so it's greed rather than hunger that I've been eating for since I stopped the acai berry pills!  Just need to get out of that habit again and everything will be fine again!  I hope!  lol

Yep, the Maqui Berry pills work the same way as the Acai Berry pills

They are both appetite suppressants so I'll just slowly build up to taking the 3 a day and get out of the habit of eating for any other reason than hunger like boredom and pressure and stuff.

I want to get down to size 10 from size 14 so hopefully I'll do it without having to order another 180 pills!  They aren't expensive or addictive or anything, I just want to shrink the internal organ and get out of the habit of eating just because I'm bored or whatever.

Wish me luck!

About to take my first...

Maqui Berry supplement from Simply Supplement.  I can take up to 3 a day but if they are anything like the Acai Berry pills I'll only need to take 1 a day!

I'm size 14 now so we'll see what happens in the next few months!

That's a relief!

Had an alert from Equifax this morning saying there had been a change to my credit report so I freaked out and logged on to find out what was going on and who had been stealing my credit card details.

The alert was positive in that one of the companies on my credit report have said that the account is now settled and inactive.  Yay!  So that's another positive point on the credit report, just got the credit cards and stuff to deal with now, but they come out of my bank account as Direct Debits each month, so as long as I don't go overdrawn again everything will be great!

Second cold of the year :-(

Just had a sneezing fit and my throat is dry and my eyes are watering and I'm snotty and just not feeling very well  :-(

Simple but effective explanation of consent care of Thames Valley Police

Sexual consent isn't as simple as "yes" or "no" sometimes and the Thames Valley Police have come up with a simple but very effective way of getting the point across in this video

Watch, listen and take note!

What I need to remember about M via Facebook

NaNo is 50k not 40k!

I've just found out that the NaNo challenge is to write 50k words in November so I'm not sure where I got 40k from!

I'm challenging myself to write double that this year though so it doesn't really matter!  It'll be done on 13th November going by the NaNo word count and 26th November for my personal challenge which will leave me a few days to go to my nephew's christening and get out of Hannah's head and back into my own!

More positive than I was expecting!

I submitted one of my novels opening lines to something in SCBWI and I got a surprisingly positive review of it... the only negative was that I'd aimed it at the wrong age group and made the writing more difficult for myself so I'm happy with that!  I know I've got good writing within me, I've just got to be more careful about the age range I'm writing for is all!


Wednesday, 28 October 2015

Just cancelled the online counselling's free trial but...

...I'll definitely go back again!

Especially if I qualify for reduced pricing!

I just want to get NaNo and Yule out of the way first, then I'll start properly again next year... just want to get this year out of the way now then start afresh next year.

Tuesday, 27 October 2015

Just bought meself...

... 6 books but that really is it now until all me mum's gifts have arrived then I'll send the gifts off and that will be it until 2016!  'onest!

Mitzi is now legal

I read online about 10 days ago that it's the law in the UK now that dogs are microchipped and have a tag on their collar with the owners details on it.

The microchipping was done as soon as we got the pup, courtesy of her vet and paid for by the Dogs Trust but I didn't know about needing to be tagged too!

She's got both now though, so she's legal at last!

Almost fell over on Mitzi's walk again this morning

Exactly the same thing happened as before... you would have thought I'd have learnt after last time!  lol

Sunday, 25 October 2015

Steve got more photo's of our little nephew, so....

... I'm going to download all of them, save them to my external hard drive and code the pages ready to upload when Andrew and Jacki say it's OK instead of rushing through at the last minute and screwing everything up unintentionally.

Scratch the post about the charms for my twins

I've just seen an email from the company I had asked to do the memorial charms for my twins and they offered to just put my twins names on plain charms!  Bullseye!  That's what I wanted anyway!  lol

Mitzi flooded the street again this morning!

Apparently she went out for a huge wee in the early hours, but the poor girl was desperate for another wee on her walk this morning!  Poor girl!

Saturday, 24 October 2015

I'm the girl who...

Just bought meself one more supplement from Simply Supplements

Been pondering on getting another weight loss supplement for the last couple of weeks and I've just bitten the bullet and ordered 180 Maqui Berry pills from Simply Supplements.  I need to take 1 pill 3 times a day so it'll be 60 days supply yeah?  Is my maths right?  Hopefully the combination of those and walking Mitzi every morning will help me to loose my stomach and I'll be able to drop at least one clothes size again.

I'm size 14 atm and I'd like to ideally get down to a size 10 but even size 12 wouldn't be so bad... it's not so much weight I want to loose as much as clothes size! 

I used Acai Berry pills and Milk Thistle pills last time but they aren't suitable for vegetarians any more but the Maqui pills are so I'm giving those a try this time.

Wish me luck!

Ho hum...

Just heard from one of the agents I emailed and they don't want to take me on  :-(  *sigh*

I'm still waiting to hear from another agent and then SCBWI's Undiscovered Voices but this is a test of my positivity.  I'm down about it, but it's not the end of the world and there are still plenty of other agents out there, I've just got to find the right one at the right time is all!

I'm going to write my NaNo novel, celebrate Yule, do a mammoth editing session,  then invest in the Artist and Writer's yearbook and start submitting again.

I will be taken on - just gotta keep submitting!

Friday, 23 October 2015

Oh :-(

I've just had the place I ordered my twins' memorial prints from... they wanted to take my finger prints to make the charms but Steve isn't the father of my twins and I'm not in contact with the father any more so I've cancelled the order  :-(

Thursday, 22 October 2015

Going to give online counselling a try

Just signed up for a 7 day free trial of online counselling which is then charged at £25 a week, billed monthly but it means I can contact the counsellor whenever I want to, as often as I want to and it will be £100 a month which will be so worth it if I get on with the counsellor!  Just having someone impartial to talk to about M will be worth it to me!

Memory permitting...

...I won't whine about my illnesses in this blog any more because I've just set up a new page and blog at Caring Bridge that is purely about my illnesses and disabilities other than things like colds and aches and pains that everyone feels at some point that can be fixed with over the counter stuff.  The Caring Bridge thing is purely for my illnesses that the Neurologist diagnosed me with when I came out of hospital is all.

Wednesday, 21 October 2015

Got another couple of Yule gifts through the post this morning

One for Steve and one for me mum... just waiting for the rest of 'em now and hoping that I really do get paid on Monday to cover it all, then I'll have about £250 spare in November that I'll move over to my 2 savings accounts ready for Yule as long as I don't spend any of it!

Wish me luck!

Have you ever wondered...

...what a keyboard from the other side of the world looks like?  For example I'm guessing that American and Australian and Canadian keyboards all have the same QWERTY keyboards as the UK but what about Europe or Japan?  What are their keyboards like?

If only I knew their addresses...

... I would send M, J and B this but I don't know their addresses or I would have already done it!

Whoever thought up the idea is a genius!

I hope you're proud of me!

I know how to use computers and install stuff and check my email and stuff but everything else is done under Steve's guidance and supervision.

What I'm about to say may not seem like a big deal but it's the first time I've done this totally alone!

I changed both ink cartridges on the printer!

All the way from researching which ones to order, finding somewhere that sold them and then fitting them in the printer!  Literally the only thing Steve did was cut the carton and bag for each of the cartridges, but I did everything else on my little ownsome!

Yay me!

Return from Rainbow Bridge via Facebook

Mitzi almost flooded the street this morning!

OK, OK, so that's a bit of an exaggeration but her wee was as wide as her and two and a half kerb stones long!  It's standard for Mitzi to wee a lot, but this morning was a lot of wee even by her standards!

Another birthday gift from the new mum and dad

A mug that says "Awesome Auntie" on it... so so cool!  It's my little nephew's christening in just over a month's time and we're definitely going this time 'cos I couldn't go to the wedding!


NaNo will have to wait for one day... I'm planning on getting the 40k written in the first 10 days so the rest is just a bonus!

Just got my Blue Badge! Yay!

I've now got a Blue Badge!  Yay!  That means I can get the person I'm in the car with to park in disabled bays that are a lot closer to where we're going!  Yay!

Both of my regular readers are back... thank you both, whoever you are!

Saturday, 17 October 2015

Didn't realise but all sorted now, thankfully!

Mitzi is microchipped but I've just read on the Dogs Trust site that the Westminster Government is making it compulsory for all dogs to be chipped in England and Wales which is amazing but the thing I didn't know is that all dogs must legally wear a collar and tag with the owners details on it... apparently it's not a new law either so I've now bought Mitzi a tag from Amazon with our details on it so that we don't keep breaking the law!  I wonder how many other dog owners don't know about the chipping and ID things?

Almost fell over this morning...

...on Mitzi's walk!  Fortunately there was a car on my right and a wall on my left otherwise I'd have gone down like a sack of spuds!

I usually walk by putting the quad cane in front of me, leaning on it walk alongside it then repeat.  This morning the quad legs bit hit my foot before I put it down which unbalanced me and I got wobbly.

Fortunately I stayed on my feet and held on to the car so that I didn't fall over but it's been a long time since that happened so maybe it was a "take more notice of where you're walking" thing today?

Friday, 16 October 2015


When I went to the door to get our take away (yes, again) I came back in here and stepped too far back and accidentally knocked Steve's lamp and my laptop off the table!  Oops!

Thankfully my laptop seems to still be working and hopefully so will Steve's lamp, but he hasn't tried it yet so we don't know for sure either way!

Apparently I've got a very robust little machine here for it still to be working after the drop!

Semi relieved now

I've just seen that one of my regular readers is back... whoever you are, thank you!

I hope my 2 regular readers are OK!

I usually have 2 people reading my blog every day, but they didn't read it yesterday so I'm worried about them!  Maybe they are on holiday or ill or something so they couldn't read it and it's none of my beeswax so I just hope they are OK!

Mitzi's lead works!

On Mitzi's walk this morning, she met a visitor of our neighbour who saw the lead and the pup went up to the visitor and she got stroked and talked to and her little tail was wagging the whole time!  So cute, bless her tiny little puppy dog paws!  The lead has earned it's price now!

Thursday, 15 October 2015

Just bought meself...

... calcium, magnesium and iron from Simply Supplements 'cos I don't think my usual multi-vitamin tablet have them in and the oral spray I got from Amazon doesn't have them in either and I've only ordered 120 days instead of 360 so hopefully I'll be able to order the calcium, iron and multivitamin together or near enough - just got to remember to keep taking them now!  lol

I've put the open tub of multivitamins on top of my two prescriptions which I've got to order on Tuesday too and the unopened one on top of the external hard drive instead of keeping them both in the kitchen and forgetting I'd bought them!

What's even better is that the delivery was free and they don't take the payment until the tubs are in my hands!  Not many companies do that now!

Out of date cooked pasta

I've just eaten a pasta pot that is a day out of date and it didn't taste right so I binned it... is it possible to get food poisoning from out of date cooked pasta though, please?

Happy birthday Steve!

Just given Steve his birthday book and he seems to like it!

It was a personalised book of reasons I love him and he said that he could open it up at any random page and he would find something new so he seems to like it!  It's a hugely thick book with loads of pages and totally unique to him... I am ace!  lol

Tuesday, 13 October 2015

I could get used to this!

Just ordered some party lights too with the same place that will be here tomorrow too and again, they were free, I just need to remember to give an honest review and mention that I got them in exchange for the review.  I hope I get to keep all these things!  lol

So exciting!

I'm with an online review site that you can buy at a very reduced price or even free from Amazon in exchange for an honest review and one of today's things on offer today was a vegetable spiraliser...

OMG!  I've wanted one of those for months or even years!  It'll be here tomorrow and it didn't cost me a penny!  Just got to remember to say that it was in exchange for an honest review so that I meet the requirements of getting it for free... can't wait for tomorrow now!

I was wrong

The £43 wasn't for the charms for my twins, it was for my usenet reader and something at Amazon.  I've just moved some money over to my savings accounts now so as long as I don't spend anything for the rest of October and November I'll be able to get amazing Yule gifts for everyone and still be nicely in credit to start 2016!

I can do this!

Grief - from Facebook

What do you want me to write about in my blog, please?

I realise that most of my posts are only a few sentences with the occasional rant but I don't want to bore you and I'm grateful for every reader, I just don't know what you want to read about!  Any thoughts or ideas or comments will be fantastic and I promise to consider each one, openly and honestly!  So, over to you!

The £43 is for the 2 charms in memory of my twins

There's £43 that has, in theory, come out of my bank account in the available credit bit but hasn't been taken out of the money that is in there atm. 

I bought 2 necklace charms a couple of weeks ago in memory of my twins that haven't been delivered yet but other than those everything that I've ordered has now been delivered so that's all I can think of!

I was paid today and I'm pretty sure I'll be paid again tomorrow so that will cover my direct debits as long as I don't spend anything else!  lol

If you won the Euromillions, what would you do with it?

Steve said last that he sometimes ponders on what he would do if he won the Euromillions lottery which is about £50 million on rollover weeks... I think he was spending more than he would get though!  lol

So, what about you?  What would you spend £50 million on?


  • I'd give some to both sides of the family to clear the mortgages and credit cards and stufff
  • Then I'd donate some to the Dogs Trust
  • Then I'd look for a bigger house for me, Steve and Mitzi
  • Hire a chef to cook home-made meals for us, instead of relying on take aways
  • Adopt a couple of children
  • Get meself a huge laptop
  • Then let the rest of it gain interest in the bank!

So I'm selfish am I?

If that's how you see me then that's OK, but please finish reading this post before you say it or think it about me.

I gave up literally everything I'd known all my life to move to Gloucester with Steve almost 17 years ago.
I gave up seeing my mum regularly.
I gave up 2 jobs I loved and was good at.
I gave up friendships.
I gave up my pets.
I gave up seeing my friends every day.
I gave up being able to see my family.
I gave up being able to visit my dad's grave.

I basically said goodbye to everything I was.  I said goodbye to the person I'd been becoming for 21 years.

When I moved to Gloucester aged 21 I was starting afresh again.  Nothing was the same any more.

I then found out I had Endometriosis so I'm probably infertile.
Then I became ill which lead to a disability that I'm unlikely to recover from.
Then the depression kicked in and that lead to psychosis.

I haven't seen my mum for 5 years but Steve sees his family at least once a week.

Steve's sister comes over most Monday's to help Steve put the food shopping away and most of the time I can't put a foot right with her... either the house doesn't meet her expectations or I'm not doing enough for Steve or I need to care for and support her brother more because he can't do everything himself.

Well I'm sorry Marie, but the only thing I don't do here is to... I don't even know!  Steve works from home and has got leg ulcers that a carer changes every day but he's more able to do things physically than I am, yet all he does is sit on the sofa watching TV or snoring away in his sleep.

It's me that does everything while Steve stays in here doing bugger all.  Steve's more able to do stuff than me but he can't even empty the kitchen bin when it's full.  I'm not tall enough to do it which is the only reason I don't do it but Steve's more than willing to take the credit for things I've done and doesn't even attempt to correct Marie when she praises him!

I've had as much as I can take from both of them now and the next time Marie blames me for not helping Steve I'll say to her that he won't mind doing it for just one more week while I don't do the things I've been doing all the f**king time that she's been praising Steve!

I still stand by what I said about doing everything and I didn't give Steve credit for emptying the kitchen bin because it's been literally months since he last did it and he doesn't even ask his carer to do it yet she's more than able to fold our clothes and put them in a box for him!

I give up.

Hugs as therapy care of Facebook again

The average length of a hug between two people is 3 seconds. But researchers have discovered something fantastic. When a hug lasts 20 seconds, there is a therapeutic effect on the body and mind. The reason is that a sincere hug produces a hormone called "oxytocin", also known as the love hormone. This substance has many benefits in our physical and mental health, helps us, among other things, to relax, to feel safe and calm our fears and anxiety. This wonderful calming is offered free of charge every time we have a person in our arms, who cradled a child, we cherish a dog or cat, we're dancing with our partner, the closer we get to someone or just hold the shoulders of a friend.

...I'm heading back to bed now!

Beauty - from Facebook

So tired!

Took the pup for her walk this morning then checked my bank balance but I'm so tired now!  Steve doesn't understand the tiredness because he falls asleep whenever he wants to but I'm not allowed to go back to bed even though I do more in a day than he does in a month!

It's too addictive!

Just been playing Pet Rescue Saga on my Kindle Fire again.

I spent 3,000 coins and £30 on it before I had to drag myself away from it. 

Must stop playing it!  lol

It was better than free!

Just bought meself another watch and it didn't cost me anything!  I'm with Quidco and Top Cashback and I asked them to pay the money I'd earned so far.  Quidco paid it into my bank account and I had an Amazon voucher from Top Cashback for £15.64 so I went in search of a watch and found one for £15.60 and used the voucher for that so I'll be getting it tomorrow using Prime and I've still got 4p left to use too! lol  It's a simple little watch that was in the sale so I saved 64% on it too!

Total aceness!

Friday, 9 October 2015

3 hours later and Mitzi is home at last!

She's home!  She's home!  She's home!

Her fur is very short now but we were expecting that 'cos it's how it's done every time we have her groomed but the poor pup is exhaustapaytid and really sleepy now but that's normal for her too.  She's got huge eyes now and she's already using them to great effect!  lol

I'm missing her already!

The pup has just gone for her spa day and I'm missing her already!

Walked the pup this morning and she had...

...a conversation with the dog at the end of the road again - I can just see the police coming back again because the people at the end of the road will say that Mitzi was upsetting their dog again.  Mitzi is a well-loved pup and the police and RSPCA have both told us we aren't doing anything wrong so hopefully they will say that if the people at the end phone them about this morning.

We keep the pup warm and dry and she's part of the family.  The dog at the end is out in all weather's at all times of the day and night so it's them that the RSPCA should be investigating!  Their dog barks constantly and it doesn't seem to matter to them that it's raining or snowing or late at night or the early hours or whatever!


Thursday, 8 October 2015

Mitzi is going for a spa day tomorrow afternoon

She's booked in for her jab at 2pm then she's going to be groomed after that so she'll be a lighter pup with less fur by this time tomorrow and she'll be sleepy by the time she gets home so Steve'll have a peaceful night's sleep tomorrow!  lol


...I've got a pea-sized stoney heart because I said I wouldn't close the back door!

Wednesday, 7 October 2015

Almost forgot!

When I went out for lunch with Chris and Hannah on Monday for my birthday, I decided to accept compliments gracefully instead of throwing it back in the complimenters face by denying it and I'm going to be a more positive person too.

I've had 38 years of being negative so it'll be hard going, but this year I'm going to do my best to change that!  If someone compliments me, I'll say thank you and smile instead of denying it... it won't be easy but hopefully it will be worth it!

Wish me luck in changing the negatives to positives please!  :-D

All backed up now!

Less than 24 hours after getting the external drive, my whole laptop is backed up and I've got my documents copied over too and I've barely touched 1tb so far!

I could get used to this!

The last 10 days...

...have gone better than I was expecting, thankfully!  Not too many tears, not as depressed, no psychosis, and I haven't even had things to keep me busy with online communities either!  I'm proud of myself for coping better with it than I have in the past!

Took about 6 or 7 hours to...

...back up the system files yesterday so I'm backing up my files now so that I can just back up the files that I change and delete most of my email accounts in WLM so that I can open it up every morning along with the other programmes without having to wait 15 minutes for it to load up!

It's already earned it's price by backing up the system files so assuming it keeps working I'll be a very happy bunny!

Tuesday, 6 October 2015


It was installing the software not backing things up!  It's definitely starting to backup things now though!  lol

Let's see how long a full backup takes

I started using a free backup tool at 3.15pm... let's see how long it takes!

Just bought meself...

...2 jeggings from BHS because my skirts and trousers seem to mysteriously disappear as soon as I put them in the washing machine.

No kidding, literally the only bottom-half clothes I've got now is one skirt and one pair of trousers!  Yes, seriously!

I just hope the jeggings will fit over my huge thighs!  lol

Thank you Marie!

The external hard drive has just arrived along with an Amazon gift card from Marie that I've used to buy loads of potentially addictive bargain basement kinda games like Theme Hospital... the graphics prolly leave a lot to be desired but I don't care about that - it's the playability that I want from games, not the look of them!

Just waiting for the Blue Badge (which'll be here tomorrow at the earliest) and the charms now!

Just waiting for...

...2 charms in memory of my twins, the blue badge and the external hard drive I ordered yesterday but then that's it until December and I'll still be nicely in credit to start the New Year!

Animal rights - from Facebook

I know this is controversial and you may not agree with me.  That's totally OK by me, but please don't have a go at me about this if you don't want me to have a go at you in return!

Been spoilt rotten today!

Got £120 worth of Amazon vouchers, a meal out with Chris and Hannah and I've bought myself a 5TB external hard drive with the vouchers that I couldn't have afforded any other way!  Just got to put the grocery shopping away this evening and then I can have an early night ready for tomorrow!

Happy birthday to me!

38 years ago today I was born, kicking and screaming, and I haven't shut up since!  lol

Sunday, 4 October 2015

Poor old hubby!

Apparently Steve slid off the sofa and on to the floor at 5am this morning because he was sat right on the edge of the cushion instead of right back and he found it really hard to get back up, bless him!  I'm just waiting for him to fall asleep and bang his head onto his laptop now!

Shouldn't laugh, but it's funny!  lol

Saturday, 3 October 2015

Know what I'm getting for everyone now!

Just spotted my mum's Yule gift, I know what I'm getting for Steve and 3 friends all from the same place so I just need to remember the url a bit closer to Yule now!  lol

I know what I'm getting everyone (except my mum) for Yule now!

Just found a new to me site that I'll be getting my Yule gifts from this year!  I know what I'm getting for Steve and 3 friends, just need to find something for my mum now!

Other than almost tripping me up...

...Mitzi was a spectacular puppy on her walk this morning!  I hold her lead in my left hand and she went round the front of me then behind me and wanted to keep walking!  I had to turn 360 degrees to get back to normal then we carried on with Mitzi's walk, bless her little teddy bear feet!

Friday, 2 October 2015

We'll soon find out if...

... we can recycle toilet roll inner tubes or not 'cos I've just put 13 into the green kerbside recycling box instead of the bathroom bin!

Steve's just said that he didn't think we'd make use of the recycling box when it first started, but I've been putting out at least 1 (we've got 2) green recycling box every week and I'm loving it!

If they take the toilet roll tubes then I'll love it even more and we can recycle magasines, envelopes and junk mail too so I'm going to try that next time as well!

Assuming that all that is taken, we might need a third box!  It only takes seconds more than normal and we're doing our bit to help the environment too... what's not to like!

Much better value for money!

Just found a 5TB external hard drive on Amazon for just over £100 which means I can back up my entire hard drive and delete most of my emails and PSP tubes but they are there if I need them in future.  That'll give me at least 200GB more than I've got atm on my laptop at the same time as saving myself more than £1000 on a new laptop... great going by me I reckon!

Just waiting for...

...the charms now 'cos the bra's and keychain turned up this morning, the Bumbo chair came last night so that's all I'm waiting for now!  No more spending other than Yule gifts for my mum and 2 friends then that's it until Valentine's Day then June and then that's it until October... bet you a whole English pound that I spend before that though!  lol

Just gotta get...

... my mum and 2 friends Yule gifts now then that's it for the year!  Don't know what to get them though!  lol

My nephew's chair has arrived so...

... just waiting for the smaller things now!

I'm waiting for several deliveries...

I'm waiting for:
  1. the Bumbo seat thing for my nephew
  2. the bra's I ordered this morning
  3. the charms I ordered in memory of my twins
  4. the keychain I ordered from Amazon
  5. anything I get for my birthday through the post
but that has to be it until the end of October though!

Spenderama again :-(

Spent another £75 in memory of my twins and I got the bra this morning so that's it now, it has to be!

Just had to buy meself...

... another couple of bras 'cos the under-wiring in the bra I was wearing this morning came out under my arm and was irritating me, so I spent £25 on 2 new bras that have got under-wiring again.  I would have preferred non-wired but because I'm a G cup instead of a D that doesn't seem possible!  :-(
