    Playing the how fast you can get back from truro is a fun game.

    Parents normally take over half an hour after dropping my brother off at school
    I managed it in 25mins in rush hour :proud:

    I then sense of

    I have a loan of ~£5k

    giving ~£150/week term time


    on of purchases/emegancies to be payed from my savings/money saved from not using full weekly amount.


    Its simple and not restrictive but then as habitually I hate paying for things I don't think I will need more restrictions

    Would I bother with fine detail? :p:

    I know which group I'm in and know one other person who's in my group but don't have the actual list of who else is in my group yet... guess it's not finalised yet as some of the resits have only just been done!
