You saw the warning, right?

I had my most successful month ever (in terms of gross income) in June of this year after working my fucking ass off a billion hours a week.

I just topped it!

This year has been a rollercoaster, and continuing to see upward growth despite everything is just... well, I'm so bloody proud of myself. :metul:


Well done, Jem. Really happy for you! xx

Jem that's amazing news!

I'm so pleased that all that hard work is paying off. During Covid when you've had the kids at home too - fantastic.

You are one clever lady, and I'm proud to know you. :luv:

It is original. Yes and terrible.

It needs replacing but will be a big job. As the pink tiles will need replacing and I bet the plaster comes off.

When you do want rid of it, advertise it. You'll be surprised at the number of people who seek these things out to refit as 'retro'. They'll pay you to take it!

Buy a turquoise lightbulb, then the suite would look grey. But so would your skin.

Oh yes it is 1980s original... :)

I was going to get a new suite, but I could not a delivery in time, and the floor was a priority

Kov, your bathroom is fine. Does it get you clean? Then it’s fine. Your floor is of course your priority, people are just teasing. Wait another 5 years and retro bathrooms will be in.

I wouldn't worry about it, you'll get to it one day I'm sure. It's functional, which is more important than how it looks!

It feels good, although my credit rating has dropped from 409 (fair) to 200 (very poor), which has confused me.

I think sometimes if you're not actively paying off debt or credit, it can affect your score because lenders don't know if you can reliably make payments or something like that. Bit weird that it's dropped now though. Do you use the moneysavingexpert credit club thing?

No but I will look at that.

I have just cleared a loan today, which is awesome. I am on a roll.

Just awaiting a cheque for £2500, which is due any day now.

Defo sign up to the MSE credit club. It's free, and tells you what things are impacting your score etc.
