Money, Money, Money My Life 09 MAR 2011

So you all saw yesterday’s post regarding our financial situation. The funny thing is, most of my posts for this site are written well in advance (you would be interested to know that there is already a post scheduled for each and every day for the rest of March), and the situation yesterday’s post addressed, was actually resolved last Friday when our prayers were answered in quite a surprise fashion.

UIF caught us completely by surprise and paid out early, far, far earlier than what we had expected and with a far, far greater amount than what we could have hoped for.

This now more than covers the shortfall until Chantelle returns to work and receives her first paycheck at the end of April, taking a huge burden off our shoulders in the process.

Of course, this exceptionally good news meant that for a change I could enjoy my weekend, translating into two walks along the beach, loads and loads of gardening, landscaping and household chores, a morning run, a visit to the Funakoshi karate fundraiser pet show (which we were kind of late getting to), two new websites configured and populated with content, a pencilled, inked, lettered and coloured webcomic, and of course an enjoyable supper with the in-laws over at our place on Saturday night.

Ah, much, much better when you are not stressing about money all the time! ;)
