Couple of nested Yays for me.

After nearly 9 years, we've finally managed to sell our "spare" house and make a modest profit. Yay!
This means we can invest some of that money in our current house. New kitchen and bathroom AT LEAST. Yay!
After crunching a load of numbers and checking a lot of regulations and reliefs, our profit comes in below the threshold for Capital Gains Tax, so Mr HMRC doesn't take a big wet bite of our shiny equity. Yay!
As a knock on, I don't have to do anymore bloody self assessment tax returns. YAY!

So... it's been a satisfying couple of days.

Have just been approved for a mortgage. Passed all the checks and everything.

I feel all grown up and very scared.

I got a 25% pay rise!

This is great because I love the company and the people I work with and it'd been a few years since I joined and I'd had nothing change at all, not that I'm overly bothered about the remuneration I receive, but it's good that I actually feel appreciated :D

I was going to say, "Photo, or it didn't happen," but there's probably a video as well and I'm pretty sure I don't want to see it, although I may inadvertantly see it anyway, during my peregrinations of the web.

Just out of curiosity, you understand, was it expensive to arrange?

Just done my car/emissions tax for a year. Sheer luck that I noticed - I got far too worried about where to put the eurolites headlamp stickers to prevent me blinding people in Europe, and tried various sites at random to tell me about my car, one of which pointed out I only had it taxed till the end of the month. Luck! And I had read that I should have my V5C with me, and could use that for the tax. Simple, but I could so easily have missed it totally.

I'd been driving round with no MOT for a fortnight without realising. It was only when I wanted to buy some headlight bulbs and the Halfords website would only let me check stock after I put my number plate in and then it helpfully told me the MOT was expired. Then I went to get an MOT and the garage told me that it's a class 7 and the council place will have to do it, which they did do but told me that actually the garage could have done it anyway because it's obviously not a commercial vehicle. But anyway sorted now so yay.

Also managed yesterday to swap the absolutely woeful standard headlights for some much better ones off a scrapper:
