Wow it's cold...  

I'm home! Yay? I've been staying with wenchpixie for the past couple of weeks for a couple of reasons, and my house feels kinda alien to me now. Also, cold.

It snowed this morning, I know this because I saw it. It was very pretty before the rain came. But I think there's a very good chance it'll snow again tonight which, since I have bugger all in the house, is going to be fun getting to the shops.

I'm... not doing so good right now, work is... problematic. Finances are non-existent. (I think I may have had a bailif at the door when I wasn't here, there's a card with legal language saying something like that anyway.) But... I think I'm okay. I have a plan, I have friends, I have butt-kickers. I have a future.

And before I get all maudlin and emo, I also have five seasons of Angel to re-watch because I really miss that show! Now I'm hoping that the water's heated up enough to let me draw a bath and get warm, so I'll catch you all on the flipside.

(Oh, Wench and I watched Jam last night and it's a cool little film. It's the kind of film I'd like to be involved in - not Hollywood and not too pretentiously Indie. I'll be looking out for it at some point - as well as adding it to my Amazon Wish List for next year...)

My neighbour's home. It's odd to hear things from next door, they've been quiet so far so it's all good. (Their dog Zeus has barked a couple of times but that's it. Absolutely nothing to complain about even if he is a Rottie)

I'm really sorry to hear things are so difficult right now, but it's good to know that you have a plan to deal with it. I'm glad you're feeling positive, hon.

Honestly, my situation hasn't gotten any worse over the past six months - I've been avoiding phone calls, not opening all my mail, all sorts of things. Now I know I can't hide from it and I know what I need to do to make it all stop, so it's all going to work out.

I just want you to be okay, hon.

Why on EARTH would a bailiff be there???

I haven't paid my credit card bills for almost a year now because I simply cannot afford to. I didn't handle it well though, and it's escalated over the last few months into potential legal action. I'm dealing with it though, I may end up bankrupt - it is a genuine possibility right now - but I can live with it if it comes to that.

Oh, honey. I am so sorry you find yourself in such a tough situation. I am holding good thoughts for you.

Baths are awesome. Even if I was singing quite loudly in an otherwise quiet house before realising that my neighbour could hear every single bum note and fluffed lyric...

I'm really grateful that you pointed me towards my rights when it comes to baillifs - I would have panicked and let him in if he comes back otherwise. Right now he could have the car, it would clear the bill he's chasing I think. (Halifax)

I am indeed going to be submitting my details today and that should *hopefully* stop the calls and stuff (most of them have stopped thanks to the CAB, but there are still a couple).

There's a Farmfoods in Saltcoats btw, I need to go in and get my Zonecard renewed anyway so I have a list (and a menu plan) and am going to FF and Somerfield this afternoon - I did a pre-order price check on Tesco.com and it came to about 18 quid, so in FF I'm thinking it'll be a lot less. (Now I just have to make sure I can get smoked paprika in Somerfield...)
