A regular monthly income, that's what most people have. Maybe every week or fortnight, 4 weekly or once a month, the majority of people have something that goes directly into a bank account. Even people on a pension or benefits - as long as nothing goes wrong with the system - have a regular income.
We lost our '24th of every month' income when C gave up working for the County Council in March 2012. Now our income arrives in bits.
This week has been a very good week
Sunday: Eggs £18 C pay for grass cutting and odd jobs £55
Monday: Eggs £14 Selling Sheep keeping books and equipment £30
Tuesday: Eggs £13 Interest on investment bond £80
Wednesday: Eggs £13 Rhubarb £3 Campsite £98
Thursday: Eggs £16 Herb £1 C pay for Rotovating a small paddock £20
Friday: Eggs £11 Herb £1 Selling hay £125. Campsite £36 + £20
Saturday: Eggs £12
A grand total of £566 ! Goodness me, if every week was like this we would be millionaires in no time!
There is a problem.............This weeks outgoings = 60 New Point of lay hens £360. Chicken Feed £125. New Energizer for chickens electric fence £60. Shopping £20. A total of £565.
So that's OK - There's £1 to spare!
C went to the Bygones ( Rusty Junk) Auction but the pig troughs went for silly prices, so he brought our money home again. He has a special message to Cro - a fellow old tractor enthusiast. " The Howard gem rotovator that was on yesterdays photo sold for £220"
The little Gypsy caravan sold for £550! That's quite a lot to pay for a very small play house.
