Life is good!

Time to have a feel good post!

Since moving up to Bancroft, I have reduced my rent by $300 a month which has freed up more funds.

This week I was able to update our crappy old television to this baby!

RCA 42 incher of course big C has been playing Playstation non stop since Sunday!

By moving north we also reduced our cable and internet fee’s, for the same amount we paid in the city we now get all the cool channels, unlimited internet (gotta have that so Big C can talk to her lil lady overseas) and a home phone! We went without a phone for almost 2yrs before.

I also have a job that keeps me really busy and I have progressed from a measly 24 hrs a week to a average of 37 hours a week, not too bad for just starting over just 2 months ago. I also have now been trained on not just my hired position, but also on pricing and signing!

In August I will finally be able to start putting money away for my retirement, AND hopefully to be able to go on a trip south sometime during the winter 🙂

Big C is doing really well. She now has a job she really enjoys and her anxiety and depression seems to have disappeared for the time being. She’s making friends and enjoying the freedom of spending her hard earned money on things she wants. I’m giving her a grace period until the end of August then she will need to start paying a little in rent.I so love waking to hearing her giggling and laughing again.

Working at a grocery store has it’s benefits I get all the sales and we sometimes get the opportunity to buy meat at a really reduced cost. So we now have a fully stocked freezer, fridge and cupboards!

The hot and humid weather has finally broken and I took the opportunity to try out a new recipe:

Strawberry Nut Loaf mmmmmmm!

Strawberry Nut Loaf mmmmmmm!

Oh my goodness,,it turned  out so good, sweet and moist!

So folks, that’s it things are looking up. It’s not perfect there will be some posts about some of the downsides, and I still am having a hard time meeting friends, BUT still it’s alot better than at the beginning of the year!
