Haven't been here for a while

February 2nd, 2011 at 02:24 am

Life just seems busy at the moment.
My exams are less than a week away. I am hoping I get my results back for my assignments before I head into the tests, knowing where I stand will give me more focus. I think I have done reasonably well on both of them - but then again, this is my first time at uni so I am not sure of the standard. What I think to be good, could be just passable to them. But I am hoping that the assignment marks contribute a lot to my overall marks. It will take the pressure off the exam, anyways.

Getting married in less than two weeks. We have booked the hall for the post-celebration party (on May 2st) and will be sending out invitations in the next week or two. We have had offers from friends to contribute food-wise, which is great. I would not ask for contributions, but if they offer, we will accept Smile.

I have decided to take only one subject for the next semester. The wedding/marriage celebration party/whatever you want to call it will take up some time, but also DF and I are meant to be organising a plan to start our own business through February. It is mainly all on DF, workwise - there is not a great deal I can do other than bookwork or customer service, but the financial side of things will take some preparation and planning, and I am sure it will take up a lot of time in the next few months.

We finally traded in our rewards points for our credit card and got 2 x $200 GC's. DF is saving his for a PS3. I will be buying neccesity clothes for the year, in the hope that I don't have to buy anything else until the next GC roll around.

DF hasn't had a lot of work lately, so our bank balance buffer is getting low. It's worrying, but there's not a lot we can do. Because he works for his dad, any spare days he *could* be working somewhere else, he is doing quotes, servicing machinery etc, stuff that he doesn't get paid for.

On the positive note, Aldi is definately saving a lot on our grocery bills which is nice. In a weeks time I will be making a time to see my bank about switching our life insurance to a different policy, which will save us money but not impact our cover.

I'm also going to make an appointment to give blood in the next two weeks, which is something I've never done before. Kind of exciting!

    Stay safe in the next few days from the typhoon! Good luck in your exams, congratulations on your wedding. It sounds like you are tweaking everything you can tweak to save money - hang on until things get a little less exciting.

    Hey Congrats with your upcoming wedding.
    Are you guys okay up there with cyclone Yasi?
    I am just hoping and praying that this cyclone is not as bad as they say, hopefully it will die down sooner.
    Take care and good luck with your exams.

    thanks everyone Smile We aren't in the path of Yasi thank goodness, though I have friends who were. It downgraded from a Category 5 Cyclone to a 3 overnight, and will be a 2 by the time it hits Mt Isa. I think that QLD definately escaped what could have been much worse. Spare a thought for the southern state which will be battling bushfires yet again this year Frown
