Shorter post today, as I’m very tired haha
So my work bonus came in – I got £2980.48 total, approx £1400 ish more than my normal salary. The amount I had planned was between £1770 and £2270 so I need to prioritise.
The main variable is the gym membership. If I put aside 2 years of full gym membership, that’s £950. 2 years of swim only membership is £650. Putting money into a gym category also has the advantage of it being a very WAM-able category if cost of living gets dire, but it does only leave £450 for spending, and £350 of that will be fixing my budget snafu with the house deposit.
With the remaining £100 I’ll probably get a food processor so I at least have something tangible for myself, and then just sprinkle the remaining over some yearly goals.
It’s a little depressing that I get so little of it to spend on treats for myself, but I’ll also have 2 years of gym membership sat in an envelope, and that’s not nothing.
I sent documents off to get my passport updated a while back. I checked the tracking information Thursday morning and it said they’d received and signed for my documents on 2nd March. Then later Thursday afternoon I got an email from them saying they hadn’t received my documents yet 😬😬 So I called them and they just said to check tracking again on Monday…. and then on Friday morning I got an email saying they’d officially received my documents, which I’m sure is 100% coincidental. 🙄🙄
