I have written a cheque I can’t cash

So do you remember how on Sunday I was talking about the Queen and Adam Lambert tour?

And how it would be more than a dream come true to go?


The boy and I have tickets.

And in the spirit of generosity I kindly/stupidly said that if the boy temporarily paid for the tickets and hotel, I would pay back every cent for both of us as well as the train tickets, so that he wouldn’t be out of pocket seeing a band he sort of despises for being the opposite of punk.

I was so caught up in the moment and the utter ‘WE MUST BUY NOW BEFORE THEY AND ALL THE HOTELS IN THE UK SELL OUT’ that I didn’t shop around and just bought bought bought.

I also said that the other condition would be I couldn’t pay him back at the expense of not paying off my debts, so this has put me even more in a pickle.

The fact was I was going to become strict and pay off my overdraft quickly with as much money as possible, so that I could then throw all the money I was spending on clearing the overdraft towards saving for Christmas. So that I could have my second debt free Christmas in a row.

Plus I have come to like my social life.

So, lets look at this way. There is a triangle and each corner is labelled with either ‘Queen’, ‘Christmas’ or ‘Social Life’ . These are my three biggest cost centres between now and the end of the year.

Cover one corner. I can have two at the expense of one.

I can have 2 out of 3. And that’s bad.

Queen has to happen as everything has been bought. Also I think I would be forever disappointed with the rest of my life if I didn’t see them. Although I felt the same about the stage show ‘We Will Rock You’ and I couldn’t have been more disappointed.

Christmas has to happen as I get ridiculously excited about Christmas and I can’t stop myself buying presents for people or sending cards.

So…..that means I will have to curb my enthusiasm for my social life until the debt is cleared.

I will also be selling as much of my excess crap as I can in order to clear the debt.

I shall go to the ball.
