Howdy Everyone! If you are a new reader then welcome to my blog.
I took Mrs Scot and her parents to see Sweeney Todd the musical for its opening night in London west-end. Was absolutely phenomenal – would recommend to anyone. Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball absolutely nailed it! If anyone has seen the movie, they will know it is quite a dark story. Cannot recommend it enough! 🙂
Admittedly, London was looking pretty beautiful as we walked across the bridge from Waterloo station. See people – I am already making an effort for this months Dilettante challenge item!
Fitness Update – Today marks the second week of the 14-Week Fitness Challenge. 1 Week down, 13 to go! If you are interested, I am updating my Fitness Diary each day (or thereabouts) from both a Diet and Workout Point of View.
Money Update – Turns out our repayment mortgage on our new house is only going to work out £50 ($80) a month more expensive than what we have been paying renting. How crazy is that! We are of course going to make big over-payments and be responsible, but it is a great feeling that we are contributing to our own mortgage and not someone else’s!
What is even more funny is that our tiny 1 bedroom, maisonette is being advertised for rent at an additional £25 a month than what we are paying now! Cannot wait for the move. I will cover this all in a moving-house centered finance post in the next few weeks.
My Announcement – I have already announced this on Yakezie so figured I will announce it here too – I have recently started a second blog – Blogoday (Blog of the Day). Blogoday is a free blog directory service which features a brand new personally run blog each day. Blogday is a completely free resource and I promise there will never be any fees, ‘premium services’ or ‘featured listings’ associated with the service. I won’t even make you put a badge on your site for being listed! Would be interested to get some feedback and suggestions on this please 🙂
At least Monday’s over now…. The week seems less daunting 😀
