I am paying £25.12 repayment option on my credit card. This apparently means cover if I lose my job. Just on the phone to them now to get rid of it and of course that takes a goodly time (@ 7p per minute). Grrr at me for being such a bozo.
I wonder how many other things I think I am slick on and I am actually still a financial dope.
So, I have a 'to do' list:
Finish pickling onions
Make bread (special request from son)
Cut grass, last cut before winter (not me, I am supervising from the kitchen).
Wooden feet on kitchen cupboard & a few other little carpentry type things (again, supervising)
Sort out apple crop.
Dry washing outside
Colour Hair - looking too much like a badger to go outside
Pick up car from the mechanic - nothing saves fuel usage like not be able to drive your car
Bike ride - if not raining
Fahed is being really good actually since we decided to sort out the mortgage. He fished a ten pounds voucher out of the bin last night at 1am, still awake from excitement of poker - we are not normally up at 1am, when he realised he will visit that place on the last day it is valid And, much to my amusement, when I was making his coffee yesterday he noticed I put in one too many sweeteners. He fished it out from the instant coffee granules and tried to put it back into the sweeteners container. Once upon a time he would have just thrown out the coffee granules and started over. Old dogs can do new tricks, especially when they sniff at financial freedom. Why do we have to be a half century old before we get this much common sense?
Anyone out there who still has credit cards? Make sure you are not paying stupid tax just because you don't read your statements properly.
