Knowing my kids have enjoyed the day and really liking the presents we got for them. Good stuff.

Over Christmas I saw my niece and she looked great. If you remember she was the one who was raped by some asshole and she was a mess. After months in therapy and also a stint in a rehab facility she seems to be doing very well but only time will tell.

I can beat that. My 16 yo son has a new obsession - music. And his first two loves are Zeppelin and Floyd! 

The apple didn't fall too far from the tree :)

I would love my girls to have the same taste as me. Not happening like that, They have their own. + a bit of their Mums.
 I am happy today because i have got myself a new Leigh rugby shirt.

Nice...I school my girls on the stuff I listen too, and they dig some of it. But they also like all that crap that every other 10 and 7 year old girl does...lol...but mine are probably the only ones in their school that can tell you the names of the members of zeppelin,  at least 2 of the singers from sabbath...lol...

Zepscoda : Thankfully my 16 yo son doesn't like current stuff except for Coldplay :)

Feeling really good today. Me and Mrs CP did a bit of shopping this morning, had a leftover lunch and we relaxed in front of a roaring wood burner and watched The Great Escape. I will be opening a bottle of red in a bit and cooking Pheasant. Marvellous

Well well. If I thought things couldn't be happier, a gift arrives from the west coast. Never heard of them but I will give it a good listen. Many thanks to a man with a big heart and a truly good person.

These past two weeks have been rough. 

The deadlines are insane and the work load is horrific. I even had to work on New Year's Eve and New Year's. 

For 5 straight days, I not only took my work home but worked till 5 AM.

Work was like a 9 AM to 5 AM job! :( 

Anyway, today, I came back home from work at 9 PM. I was exhausted but my day was made, when I found that a package had arrived for me, containing a very special album :D 

I had an Amazon gift card that was just lying around. Glad I put it to good use! B)

Another thing that made me happy was receiving my first pay check. This happened 4 days ago. 

Time to go shopping for music albums! I have so much to buy! :D

Congratulations, kiwi, that is a huge accomplishment and one that you should be (and no doubt are) very proud of! Don't forget to save a few pennies.  Start early and never stop saving. You won't miss the money and it will provide you with a nice nest egg down the road.  I know you already know that, the mom in me just couldn't resist, hehe. ;)

Awww...Debbie! That is so sweet of you! :friends: 

I know exactly what you mean by the importance of saving up for the future. I have allocated 30% of my pay check to music shopping and 70% of it goes to my savings account!

Great news about your pay check Kiwi- assuming you can actually get hold of some Rups ?? Maybe 50/50 saving spending? Have a great weekend?
