It's been a great day. Woke up, and had won literally £3.90 on the lottery, ran a 10k, watched almost all of the cycling, watched the footy, watched The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard and now Cougar Town.

WHAT A DAY

Today I have discovered that my fridge has a drip tray at the back that needs emptying every now and again. I’ve only owned this fridge for about 4 years. You can imagine how manky the water was… well, I say water. More like sludge.

Deary me. It seems too much income tax was extracted from me again. Inland Rev just sent me a nice letter telling me how to get a £460.60 refund sent directly to my bank account.

I was due to be debt-free in December this year, thanks mainly to Stepchange and Gamstop. However, as I've managed to save a little on the side here and there, I realised I was in a position to just pay the remaining balances off. So as of this morning, I'm totally debt-free. £39k in debt paid off in four years, which is none too shabby. Now I can start living a normal life again. :)

That's amazing news!!! And no mean feat.

Congratulations, onwards and upwards. :)

Thanks all :) And yes, definitely chuffed; I was paying £800+ towards it each month, so it will be nice to put that money towards something else now.

I managed to fix my dodgy electric car window.

Previously, when you raised the window, it would bounce back from the top as if there were something trapped in it.

I used my big brain, and my torx screwdriver set to disconnect the motor, move the window down a few notches and put it all back together.

Satisfying

Delivery error! "Oh sorry you got the wrong order" said the lady. "Keep the food and we'll get yours over as soon as".

Extra 4 burgers, three portions chips, and a dirty fries for free!

There’s a local group that provide support and assistance for refugees and asylum seekers who were running a collection today for the Afghan families who will end up here.

They got slightly more donations than expected so I’ve just spent a couple of hours helping load stuff, transport it and unload again. 2 vans, a few cars and a coach full.

That's brilliant, and very quickly done. Bravo.

Unlike this post, which arrived almost two months after the original.

I have just been approved in principle to re-mortgage. Which is quite huge to say I was on an IVA this time last year and could only get interest only.

Now to look at mortgages :)
