Selkie.

At least you have (I hope) some sort of food. I remember the story of a few years ago, when the woman went out for the turkey, or somesuch, and ended up snowed in for over 10 days.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

You need to learn how to budget Ghost.

Example:- £50 birthday money, spend £30, balance £30, spend £10, balance £35, spend £25, balance £10, spend £40, etc. If you do it right you can spend your money three times over. And have some left. ;)

yes I know about budgeting I am not that stupid I make my money stretch to breaking point
but I don't earn that much and due to a sever back injury 3 years ago and an extreme change in my family situation
2 years ago limits the amount I can work so every now and then I use creative thinking to try and squeeze a little extra and yes this time it fell through but I made it work I got my family their presents and covered my personal expenses okay
after general expenses travel, account payments, uniform, housekeeping which covers a good chunk of the household bills etc...
I can't see why every couple of months I can't treat my self to something just for me
even though Christmas is just a few days away I know my family can not afford to buy presents so I know I won't be getting anything nor do I want anything even
I have a clear idea of void between want and need
and I don't want my family to suffer financially because of what I want

Very sorry Ghost. That was meant as a joke but has obviously back fired, didn't mean to annoy you.

Don't worry - I didn't understand it either. I just assumed it was a joke because of the smilie at the end. However, I didn't really understand your problem either, so maybe I'm just a bit thicker than usual at the moment... I don't care, I'm on holiday! :mrgreen:

btw: I was wondering: isn't the thing that makes you unable to understand maths dyscalculia?

how bloody hard is it to find a good pair of over ear headphones in a nice colour and by nice I mean no dumb-ass smiley faces, florescent colours or comic book designs my old dependable headphones are so old the foam ear-covers (I don't know the proper name for them) have started to degrade they work just fine except for that and they are soooo comfortable and I spent a long time adjusting them to fit my head

I know your pain - I gave up and ended up buying ones that make me look like one of those people who direct planes into their positions on airports, but are really good.

I like my other pair of headphones (skullcandys) but at almost £25 a pair I'm damned if I'm going to use them travelling to work.
