Ok, moving right along...

After my hissy fit in the last post... I've decided to gear it back a bit... Other people's lives are their business, not mine...

So, right now I'm doing all my research and counting down to R day - redundancy day!

I can't wait, Dave has agreed to give a fixed lump sum from his redundancy (which is partly what he owes me for all the money I put towards our debt last September, and partly just because, well, I earned that money right along side him, by listening to all his troubles at work, rofl)...

So, I've spent the money in my head already (wouldn't you know)... Here's my plan of action...

* Pay off my credit card, and reduce the limit from $2000 to $500 (and they'd better not try and tell me I can't do it all at once, or I'll go to a current affair show and expose how the banks are trying to keep people in debt)...

* Buy a laptop computer and a router so I can be wireless within the house (ok, so I have to plug into a power connection once the battery is used up, but you know what I mean)...

* Buy a tv cabinet so I can lock the tv and dvd and video players away from little hands, yay!!!

* Buy a Expedit shelving unit from Ikea for the boys room, in the possibly vain hope of keeping their room in some semblance of order now that they've acquired more toys... Looks like this, but I might get it in black...

Now, we're also going to visit my parents for a week or so, yay! Dave's first airplane ride EVER!!! (how on earth do you get to be 47 and NEVER have flown in your life???)...

Because of the other stuff I'm getting, I'm also rearranging the house again (yeah, I seem to manage to organise to do this at least twice a year, don't I?)... So the old tv stand will go into the corner of the dining room with all the plastic containers in it. I'm not sure what I'll put on it, but maybe just photos or candles or something...

The bookshelf currently in the boys' room with go into Bryn's corner of the loungeroom with his toys and books on it...

The boys drawers will be moved to the opposite wall from where they are now, and their table and chairs will go to where they current bookshelf is, while the new bookshelf will go to where the drawers, table and chairs currently are...

Oooh, I'm so excited!!!

oh LOVE the look of those shelves... and am dead jalous about the lap top and trip away! And don't you think half the fun of buying stuff is figuring out what you are going to spend the money on before you even get it, when there is still a chacne to dream a bit and change your mind? Or is that just me?
