Today I have just about had enough!
Today is not a good day!
I do not work because of illness. We have 2 weeks until my OH gets paid. To say that money is tight is an understatement of grand proportions!!!
In the last month alone we have had.........
Fathers day ( for both my OH and father in law)
Birthdays for........my mum
2 x nephews
Father in Law ( yes his b'day is a week after Fathers day!!!)
A good friends 40th birthday
Scouts Water Weekend x 2 at £35 each
Travel cost for Above weekend x 2 £10 each.
2 x new water shoes for above weekend!!
Scout summer camp £215
Deposit for Cubs panto tickets
Yearly 'Jabs' for cat!
Day up London for above mentioned friends 40th birthday- Rib ride on Thames booked and expensive posh lunch ( I do not begrudge it in any way but it has come at a bad time)
That's over and above our normal living expenses which are already severely budgeted for........
We do not eat out
We do not buy clothes unless necessary ( my outfit- dress for friends 40th came from good old Asda!!)
We do not have take aways
It will be my birthday on Monday and have told my OH not to buy anything and that I would be happy to have the above mentioned dress as a pressie from the kids! And I mean it.....but I'm not sure he has stuck to it!!!! Which is lovely but will make me mad as we cannot spare a penny!
Now that is depressing enough, wouldn't you say? But I'm quite sure I am not the only person at the moment in that position!! I do not believe in having a credit card either as you actually have to pay it back......so whats the point!!!!
BUT TO TOP IT ALL I GOT A F**KING FLAT TYRE TODAY!!!
When I tried to phone my OH to let him know I had trouble getting through so had to phone his work number, which I never call. The reason I couldn't contact him??? HIS F**KING PHONE HAS BROKEN!!!
So please let me know I am not the only one in dire straits!!!
I am spitting feathers, with steam coming from my ears and in need of wine.....which I do not have and haven't got the money for anyway!!!!!! No chance of becoming an alcoholic anytime soon.
On the plus side I can totally vouch for the ' bowl of cereal and beans on toast' diet!! It works wonders LOL
