    @Anita44

    Putting more in the joint account and limiting what you have in your account sounds like a very sensible idea!

    When will you find out about the car? Fingers crossed it isn't a write off!

    One day at a time, I feel like a broken record haha, but it really is the best approach

    Hi printemps

    They tow my car year afternoon to the work shop, the insurance said they look at the photo and they said they can fixed it.
    I might give work shop a call, make sure they check them in detail for me.

    I have to say self exclusion for the casino are helping alots, cos I don't have the urge when I drive to work any more, cos I know I am not allow to go their and play.

    Yes my own account only have under $300, and the rest go to join account from now on, unless I plan go shopping with all the girl than I will take extra cash with me.

    It's work out very good, I just hope I will stop gamble for ever, I will keep trying.

    Hi everyone

    Hi printemps & lovely cat lady miss you both

    How are you doing?

    Feeling proud today, went to my brother place after work tonight, paid him back $500, only another $500 to go than I should be paid him all back.

    My car still not fix yet, as the guy assessment my car was sh it me, he said my car door not line up, it's got nothing to do hit from the rear, I said to him, yes it is cos he was hitting my car quite hard. He was so rude, than I tell the insurance people he was very rude, I can just get my own insurance to take over this matter, as soon as I say that, they open their picture look at my car and they say oh we can see the door not line up on the passenger side, I said to them its not just passenger side all 4 door of my car are not line up and I'm not accepting any job to be done, unless I think what is fair for me, cos I just want them to fix my car up to how it's use to be, I tell him I am the first owner of that car and I never have any accident since I was 18 yrs old, so don't tell me the door not line up it's wear and tear, I said to the insurance even I look at the 20 yrs old car their car doors are line up better than my car now.
    I said to the insurance lady, I still remember when you first ring me, you said I'm on the right so you will look after me and fix my car back how it's use to be, what happen now?
    I said to them if I'm not happy I will go back to my insurance than it's will cost you guy more money and that not my fault it's will be all your guy fault.

    So much hassle, they hit my car but I'm the one have to ring all over the place.

    Hi @Anita44,
    How's your weekend going?
    You must be so relieved after seeing your brother. :o Almost done paying him back. Well done!
    So sorry to hear about the car hassle... what a pain. Fortunately, you have the other option of taking it to your insurance. And it's also very fortunate you didn't injure yourself in the accident and only the car resulted damaged.
    Hope you're having a good day at work and that the car gets sorted soon. :);

    Hi lovely cat lady

    Weekend was good my partner was busy with his work, I make sausage roll this morning before work, so everyone is happy.

    Yes I feel good that only another $500 than I don't owe anyone money and I'm up to date with my bill too, very please with that.

    Everytime I bring money return to him, I always have extra food for him, it's show that I appreciate that he helps me when I needed most.

    Some people borrowed money and not paid back, than eventually they run out of people they borrowed.

    I was telling my brother the true, that I been gamble and I need money for back up my business and he was supported me, I was very lucky to a wonderful family I must say that.

    Yes I guess we learn new thing everyday, I was telling my customers about my car accident, they give me very good advice this weekend, I will use that tomorrow talk to the insurance people. I just don't like they take advantage of me that all

    @Anita44 it really sounds like you have such wonderful supportive family around you. I'm sure your brother really appreciates how quickly you've paid hi back, and of course the food as an extra thank you!

    How have you been the past few days?

    Hi @Anita44,

    I'm so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of your sister. My sincerest condolences to you and your family.
    Losing someone we love, a family member, is never easy no matter how prepared for it we might be. I can imagine it's being even harder for you to not be able to fly there and be with your parents right now all together... I really hope the tears and sadness start diminishing as the days go by.

    We're here for you. Please keep us posted and take good care of yourself.

    @Anita44 I'm so incredibly sorry to hear about your sister.

    As @Lovely Cat Lady said, it must be incredibly difficult with the restrictions. I hope that you and your family are okay and remember, we're here for you.
