        yep, no wonder I’m broke $237USD before currency conversion spent here during LOD. Must figure out a better way to budget cause I can’t keep spending that amount each month

      if you’ve heard all about the loss and devastation in NZ, I’m all ok - Haven’t watched any of the media coverage for good reason.

        TY Jennifer for letting us know you are OK. Deft'ly thought of my NZ Lilypad friends when I heard the devastating news. I am so sorry this happened.

      Can’t believe I was blonde enough to book a bus trip on the wrong day based on a date someone said rather than email proof - it’s fixed now

        @BevG Jaimee has been in the first week or so I think but Mommyish hasn’t (she’s the main one I’m holding out for now).

      Trying to resist buying fonts, not easy when I’m a font addict! I try not to buy fonts ever, might have to see what’s similar that’s free

      Do I try and do the monthly challenges this month? Need to do 6 to make a decent dent in the exchange rate

        as for the journaling challenge, have you had a look at the ones people have already done? There might be something you could lift? You would be more than welcome to lift mine.

        You can do it! If you focus on 1 challenge/day, you'd have 6 done in no time. Hopefully one per day is something you feel comfortable taking on while recovering; good news is, it's still early in the month so you have lots of time to think on the challenges and then to scrap. Maybe scrapping will get your mind off of recovering? Either way, feel better!

        There is, and not enough money to buy it all. Think I’ll well and truly be broke after Mommyish and a couple of my other faves have their day in the spotlight

        and it's not just the budget, someone is becoming concerned about the amount of time I'm scrapping .... I need to join a CT again soon or come out of design retirement so I can justify it as "work"

        Ended up being only 2 1/2 days of pain and discomfort but it’s made me more determined to sort the issues out naturally if I can.

        @Angela Toucan, I started my trip 8 hours ago. Got 2 1/2 to go on the long distance bus then probably 90 mins more before I’ll be home (have to catch local bus from bus station home)

        @BevG - Interview went well but honestly think it’s less than 50/50 that I’ll get it based on the topics that they were heavily emphasising during the interview

        Thanks everyone, it went well though I feel I’m a 50/50 chance as the interview was mainly focussed on education and teaching rather than disability so I’m not as sure that I’ll get it.

        Only reason I am umming about it is my lightning cable for my ipad is being a PITA only charging my phone not my ipad so currently it is dead. Planning on getting a new one on my way to the bus but if it doesn't work I have no plan b unless I've already packed my laptop

        Could you take both, if you're worried about needing one over the other? If not, then I'd take the laptop for the same reasons you mention (including the iPad charging issue). I hate worrying about my laptop when I travel but it's good to have it if you'll need it.

        @Tree City laptop is already packed ready for later on. @cfile - the organisation I’m interviewing with is providing all the tech stuff, I just had to ask.

      Answers from the dr tomorrow or at least a step closer. Probably have to “donate” some blood at the lab to get actual answers though
