Bit of a cashlack rantage. Sorry. [Aug. 18th, 2004|04:02 pm]

I survived work last night!! Admittedly, I didn't do a lot of keying - managed to wangle all sorts of ways to get out of it - printing out old minutes, photocopying things, paper jams which took 20 mins to fix, typing up new minutes, work time learning sessions, private conversations...that sort of thing lol!! Walked home rather smugly pleased with myself.

Slept five hours, woke up at 12:30 and went up to parents with some more stuff (will it EVER end - actually there's only really the kitchen to sort out now)...and had to sit and make conversation with the grandparents. My wickle sister Helin was there too so we escaped to the loft to talk and snuggle Chloe.

Then I spent a good two hours on the phone sorting out bills - BT is going onto some sort of card thing which you can use online - all set up to pay the 54 quid arrears by the end of the month. Water board are setting up a fresh account for my flatmate when I leave on the 27th - and I am taking the 504 (f$$%*"K!!!) quid arrears with me. We probably have about 200 owing to council tax and 400 owing to electric as well on the joint accounts we've had over recent years, so I'd imagine some lengthy payback plan or consolidation is on the agenda for me. Gotta love bill companies:/

As for my mobile bill - rang up to fix the 340 arrears on that - which I shouldn't have as an entire bill because THEY messed up again - but (surprise surprise!) their systems are down and I have to ring back at 5pm.

Btw, these bills aren't entirely of my own making (apart from the mobile), but I'm setting my flatmate up with a clean slate and taking the arrears with me for now.

9 days left till I am officially living with my parents again. Fresh start and all that. Oh joy!!

At least Chloe loves me:/

Blimey O'Reilley, that's some debt there, not that it needed saying, ahem. You're one of the good people.

Oh and have you heard this new Nick Cave single 'Nature Boy'?

I'll want to talk to fart_pellet about sorting this out when I get to the end of the month with all the bills in my hands lol!!

It'll get dealt with. I'm more concerned with how my flatmate is going to cope financially when I'm gone. Hopefully I can sort something out to keep him going until he gets some money coming in himself.

*big hugs back*

Whatcha upto tommorrow btw?

There's always the Citizens Advice Bureau, I suppose. (they don't even put the apostophie in there themselves).

I'd come up to the farm with you and Lisa if I could ensure I got back to work by 9pm...plus I'd not be awake till 1pm anyway. Nightshift is a bit of a bugger, ne?

hiya,
sounds like ur havin the sort of fun that ive almost court up with now when my g/f walked out with all the money and leavin all the bills.. the council tax thing if u give them a call asap they will take ur name off the joint account and then send out new revised accounts and u will most likely get a extra month b4 they ask u for any money, i found it helped to give them a sob story lol as they went much easier on me..lol

All the others including the mobile u could leave to go to CCJ's as long as u dont value ur credit rating or if ur credit rating is already pretty bad, then once ur back on your feet u can clear the CCJ's. Though it might be a idea just to check ur postion with the Citizens Advice Bureau as to whether they can come after your possesions at ur new address, as i hav a feelin they cant, they can only repossess stuff from the address that the CCJ's and debts are linked to..
