Thank goodness its Friday, I am so glad its the weekend. This week the weather has been great here and I have managed to get all the washing done and line dried. The washing basket is now empty but the downside is that the ironing basket is now full ! The meal plans have been going really well and I am going to plan next weeks over the weekend. This sounds pathetic but we haven't eaten out or had takeaways for over two weeks now. There was a time when we would have had a meal out or a takeaway at least once each week but so far we have stayed strong ! It is so easy to feel weak and give in to the laziness. I felt like that yesterday, I'd had a busy day and felt like taking the easy way out but I came home and cooked dinner as planned like a good mother ! Another success this week was that my husbands credit card bill came and it had came down by £2300 last month. This was due to a number of things: overtime, cutting back, savings and sale of our second car. Our other car hadn't really been used for a few months. My husband gets the train in now to work, much quicker,cheaper and easier ( should have done it years ago-never mind ) We decided that rather than leave it parked up to rot away , we would sell it and put the proceeds towards the credit card balance. It is great to see the balance coming down. This was what I had to remind myself with yesterday when my mind was drifting onto fast food. Nothing tastes as good as being out of debt feels !!
