The third item I have completed this week..oh baby, I'm on a roll!
This item is something to celebrate..I AM DEBT FREE! I have never been one to be extravagant with money but there was a short period of time when I got in the habit of just using my credit card and not paying it off in full at the end of the month. Now, I am living up to my Scottish sterotype and being as tight as a nut!
Today after a good year or so of regular payments and no spending I have paid off my credit card and I AM DEBT FREE..it feels good!!
My better half and I took the 2 1/2 hour train journey north to Inverness. Often referred to as the 'gateway to the Highlands' Inverness was only granted city status in 2001 and still has a quaint towny feel to its shopping streets. The highlight of our short vacation was our coach trip to Loch Ness, home of the infamous 'Loch Ness Monster'. The tour organised by Jacobite took us from the city centre to the Clansman Harbour on the banks of Loch Ness. There we climbed aboard the 'Jacobite Spirit' and sailed across the deepest part the vast waters to Urquart Castle. After exploring the castle ruins and visitor centre we were once again on the coach and taken to the Loch Ness Monster Exhibition Centre before heading back to Inverness.

The other day I went to purchase some naughty little panties for a trip away with my Mister..these are what I came back with....
Sean The Sheep briefs!!! Built for comfort rather than passion but in this Scottish climate it pays to keep yer bum warm!!
So, with them being pairs 9 & 10 that is this item done..hooray!

21.Make sure I have savings in high interest account has replaced
21.Open a Post Office account. This is simply because the Post office no longer offers the kind of account I was after and it is perhaps more beneficial to make sure the little money I have saved is earning me the maximum interest available.

Last Wednesday, the other half and myself took the short bus journey to nearby Dysart..a small harbour village which is now very much a suburb of Kirkcaldy (Fife,Scotland). This little place is steeped in history and was once buzzing with thriving industries of exporting coal, textiles and salt. These days however all these trades have gone leaving a picturesque,sleepy wee place with only a sprinkling of tiny sail boats bobbing in the harbour.
We enjoyed a really sunny afternoon and stopped for a light lunch at the cafe in the renovated Harbourmaster's House which is now a visitor centre.
