unexpected payrise!

September 17th, 2009 at 05:13 am

I got a nice surpise this week, our annual payrise.
Because it's a federal wage I didn't think we'd get one this year, I don't know why but I had this funny idea what with the recession and all... anyway! Apparently I'm a moron.

It's not a great deal, 53c an hour, but it's better than a kick in the teeth.

It works out to be around $10 a week or so.

My hourly rate goes from $19.78 to $20.31

I was thinking of transferring it to my personal loan to get it paid off quicker. I owe $2700 now, and should be able to pay off a bit extra at the end of this month because my spending has been low(er).

So, yay for payrises!
