Despite only being paid £200 on my last pay day, I have actually been really good and managed to save £60 in my bank until this pay day. I can't tell you how long it has been since that happened. Anyway, the tax man hadn't done my student stuff right and he owed me £200 which he paid in today with the rest of my wages - I had done a lot of overtime this month so when I checked my bank this morning I was very happy to see £700 in my bank account! I have been saving it up because I finally want to get this flat done. Because this flat is probably 3 times the size of our last place, buying bits here and there has really taken quite a while!! But as I will be receiving my student loans next month too (we always use a little bit of it to spend on ourselves before it disappears on bills - seeing as we don't drink or party) I really wanted to get the majority of the things that I needed done this month so that I can add the finishing touch next month (probably a small TV for the bedroom). Thank you, Mr Tax man for allowing me to do this! So today I went out and bought new curtains, cushions, a chest of drawers and storage for my makeup (I have a lot of it and it needed to be sorted through properly). I still have some things to clear out and sort through and it'll probably take a week or 2 around work but I'm getting excited that soon it will be complete and I won't need to keep adding things. Everything will have a home, it will be neater and much more homely around here and most importantly I will take some photos and share them with you guys. I know there's a few of you who have been looking forward to seeing my new (ish) flat since I moved!
In other news, I have been considering starting swimming a couple of times a week but have been putting it off because I hate going to new places on my own. I don't know why but not knowing where things are or how things operate really make me very nervous. But today I decided that I need to stop putting it off. Next week I am going to go swimming and hopefully really enjoy myself and get a decent workout. I want to lose a bit more weight before uni starts again next month so I have 4-6 weeks to crack on and get it done. Wish me luck.
