I have been feeling a bit defeated  by life over the past week. Having no money, worrying about how I will pay the bills – it feels relentless. I think the combination of the weather and getting a pay cut last month is catching up with me! When I can see no light at the end of the tunnel, I look at this:

imageI have it stuck to my PC at work and on the fridge door! So I am not ready to give in or give up….

I need to bring in some more money so I have printed off a load of my yoga CVs, which I will send out to all of the gyms and health clubs in the area tonight.

I also plan to get on with tidying up the house decor, on a shoestring budget of course! At the moment I don’t feel I can comfortably get a long term lodger as the ads for house shares and rooms to let locally all seem to be in brand new, very smart houses bought as buy to lets. Shoestring Cottage looks very tatty in comparison!

At least I have a foreign student booked for a week in March, and more coming over the summer, so that should swell the coffers in the meantime.

Until then, I need to stay focused and determined and be thankful for what I have 🙂
