My broadband was not getting above 40 meg, BT openreach have been out.. Re cabled to the house, it has jumped to 64. Apparently the cable and socket was 30 years old and obsolete.

When I got mine upgraded the engineer said he was amazed I got any broadband signal at all with the old wall unit.

I have a double yay!

After I kicked my ex out I ran up about £8000 worth of debt - mostly from house related stuff and bills related to buying him out of the mortgage etc but also partly from "woo, I'm finally free, I can do things" splurges.

One of my goals for this year was to finish paying off that debt and have been chipping away it where possible. Despite my income being down (homeschooling eating into my time rather than decrease on demand) I've kept this up during lockdown and was ready to make the final payment this week.

When I rang the bank they told me that because of the over-payments the final payment would be about £300 less than I thought it was going to be. So win one: keeping £300 unexpectedly! Win two: mentally, I now have complete financial freedom from the knob! Yay!

(Now just to pay off my credit card :DD )

I just received a £100 John Lewis gift voucher I’d forgotten about, for taking out Vodafone broadband.

Fantastic news Jem, especially on breaking that tie.

And on the money bit, too.

Nice little bonus, too, Zoidbrrg

Jealous. It’s so bloody humid in Wales and routinely 15c at night. I had my feet under the cold tap at 1am last night trying to cool down. Except the cold water wasn’t cold
