Money stress

| | Comments (2)
Had a bit of a financial "moment" today.  Found out my other mortgage account has been frozen - a couple of weeks earlier than we thought it would.  Had a bit of low level panic cause all my money is tied up in that account.  Had enough change for lunch, then got some money out of my "internet" bank account, but there's not much in there til pay day this week.

So now have to chase down all the automated payments that come out of that old account and stop them.  Then there's a tonne of paperwork to read and sign for the new mortgage.  And we haven't done our tax yet.

It's all a little stressful :(

(oh, and then realised we were meant to be going to Newcastle with friends at the beginning of November (not to mention going away with Scott and Kerry the weekend before), but we're likely to be moving that weekend.  And I'll probably be on call.  It's not shaping up to be a stress-free couple of weeks....)

and then you get this annoying person from upstairs hassling you for Urchin logs in exchange for cointreau...I'm not sure I'm at the good end of that deal! LOL

lol :) we'll have to pick a weekend to do that.. :)

as it turns out I don't think the account was locked - it was just at its limit from a couple of big bills that had come out, but didn't show up on the balance at the atm. So a bit of a reprieve to get stuff sorted out.
