I would love to Sandra, but not on an open forum as I can be fired for doing so.

Sandra, and Grace, thank you, had a coffee, and a cry, sent a text to Matyn, he called me, and in the end I called the Office, had a moan, and got the problem sorted ( I hope ) feeling a bit better now. Thank you both for the hugs and thoughts. :)

Deu to teh slow winding of the wheels of beurecracy, Teh finnnish tax authority, Vero, only got around to processing my tax froms for 017, yesterday.
I got a nice wee note in the door eysterday mornign, i'd been hoping for a small refund, nope, instead they'd like some money
a lot of money
6,200 euro, half on december 1st, half on february 1st.

I am ow employing the srvices of a rather expensive tax accountant. It was a very large shock i can tell you.

Definately - the last tax bill I got turned into a rebate cheque - though I was able to do this myself and avoid the horror of an accountant (Brother and wife are those :shock: )

Today has been a bit of an odd day, bad start, noiticed light flashing on phone, answer message from my Hairdresser, I call them, and it seems my hairdresser has quit ,....usually no problem.
This time it is a problem, as my appointment is on Monday, and on Wednesday my Number one son ( one and only child ) Is getting married. :shock:
I have spent time and money bulding a good relationship with my previous hairdresser, and now my unruly frizzy head of candyfloss is in the hands of somone I do not know, two days before my sons nuptuals! Arrrgh!
i AM PRAYING FOR MIRACLES HERE! :D

Is it worth ringing round other salons to see if she’s now working there? Sending lots of good hair vibes to you x

This year has been a bit odd, One and only son got married, I wore a dress ) and lost some serious weight before hand , still lookled like a heifer, but one in a frock.
I spent hours practicing my make up, and can now do eyeliner on my top lashes, without ending up in A&E ( for a woman with varifocal glasses that is no mean feat ! )
Since the wedding I have now discovered I quite like looking nice, if I go out, never having much money to spend on clothes , ever, I tend to live in jeans, and sweatshirts or T shirts in the summmer, going out meant I changed the T shirt for a shirt, and ran a brush through my hair.
I hate spending money on ANYTHING , and forking out over thirty quid, can give me the colywobbles, but now I like looking presentable, and not like an off duty trucker.
This dilemma got sorted by accident, I found a well known charity store, on line, that do some seriously good quality clothes, at rediculous prices. So I bought a nice shirt, a very nice shirt,...and then bought a coat, for well under my thirty quid is enough, limit.

All fine and dandy, I can now dress well, without breaking the budget, and indulge in some well made classic gear, that will last, and I am helping Charity, a win all round I think. I have even got some nice leather knee high boots for Christmas, low heel that aught to last for ages, from Martyn wich he got a discount on. I then thought I might like a couple of skirts to go with the boots, and two jumpers, from my now "Go too " shop on line.
I asked Martyn this morning, " Can I spend forty quid on my self today ? He asked if it was on clothes, I said yes , he rolled his eyes and said " This is becoming a habbit " and left for work.
Yesterday he spent forty two quid on two work jumpers.
So now I am spending it on hiring a small J.C.B to dig up the patio instead, I am sure I can fit him under it, and re pave it by this evening. :twisted: MEN all the survival skills of a dead duck.
