My Pot Of Gold
As those of you who follow my blog know I am broke. After a failed business and what was almost a failed Marriage The Foxx and I have been beating off the creditors with a big stick. The light at the end of the tunnel was some Superannuation which by the way I still have not been paid out and a small pension which was going to be coming to me each month from the UK.
The amount of the pension was a bit of a grey area, as it was being paid to me on a sliding scale of my age and the number of years I worked in Scotland. I was'nt even sure if this was taking into account the time off between children and so I had no way of working this out for myself.
On Saturday morning I checked my bank account to see how much to give The Foxx towards food as he was going to be Grocery shopping for me due to this heavy cold of mine. And deposited into my account from the UK Pensions Dept. was almost $4,000.
Where the hell did that come from ??? I almost burst into tears I can't remember the last time my account even looked like having that amount in it. I could hardly wipe the smile off of my face all day, But I did not and still have not spent 1 penny of it.
There has to be a logical reason why there has been so much money deposited into my account and this payment is being backed up with a letter from the UK so until it arrives and I know beyond a fact that I get to keep all this lovely money, I refuse to touch it.
But physical touching and mental touching are two different things and so I am determined that not one cent is wrongly spent, I need an Emergency Fund I need a Holiday Fund and I need to pay off some debts, but I just can't make my mind up which percentage should go where.
I need some help here folks please help me make sure this goes to the right areas............
I am feeling a lot better than I did over the weekend but this cold has left me with a really nasty cough which once it gets started I just can't stop and ends up with a sharp pain between my shoulder blades, so tomorrow I have a Doctor's appointment maybe I need an antibiotic.
My Mum is home from The Hospital now she is getting an assessment done today to see exactly the amount of help she is going to require. I told her not to play Miss Independent but to ask for any help they can give her, she has promised to do this and my Sister will be there to make sure she does.
