I have to admit, I am not the worlds most positive person.
I have no what I would cal best friends that live nearby. The one person I feel I could run away to if things got too much lives in Swindon - quite a few miles away from me!!!!
Money is the bain of my life. I have come to realise we will always be in debt and the liklihood of owning our own house is never going to happen. It just depresses me every time the credit card bills come in.
So today I am having a positive outlook........
- I have laughed with my boys
- I have smiled at my smallest and both seem to have given me loads more hugs and kisses the last couple of days.
- It's only 102 days until Chrstmas ..... which means it's almost the new Year ........ which means New Year resolutions. This years is not to keep leaching 'friends' who brought me down and to put ME (and the boys obviously) before anyone else. so far so good.
- I have started my "2 adults, 2 children, 4 weeks and £200 for food" challenge - you can follow my progress here. Hopefully this will give me a more positive outlook with money by the time the 4 weeks are up and give me some space cash to put on the credit cards :)
