We need a plan

Hubby and I gave up planning anything years ago as it always went belly up.
With so much going on just now, it became obvious that we would need a plan, as it is not so much a question of ‘If’ but more a statement of ‘When’ the brown stuff will hit the fan.
We have tried to keep positive, run the figures countless different ways, and just when we think we’ve got it sussed, some bar steward throws us to the wolves and screws us over.

This March has been one of the most difficult months I can ever remember.
From day 1, it has been a financial nightmare, all of it threatening to our way of life and totally beyond our control and purse.
There have also been other issues (ie. Maggie and now the recent development with my Mum) that has stripped us to the bone emotionally.

Things are on the change, part of it an adventure which will be documented in due course.
Today, we drew up our schedule, and now we have a plan.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Plans are always good…. as are backup plans for “just in case”! As somebody once said “Plan for the best case scenario… but be prepared for the worst!”

  3. Her’s hoping April proves a better month for you guys.

    I hope things are looking up for you guys since this! Sending kind thoughts xx

    • Thanks Janey. It’s a minefield out there now that the boat’s sold and we are being reminded of the ‘des res’ properties that are falling apart under the guise of ‘in need of modernisation’. whereas ‘charming and quaint’ means tiny and pokey. We’ll get there.,
