Oh my word, I was so busy last week. I am still waiting for the lull - I know it will come - but, for now, it's full on. However, and this is the big "but", I won't get paid for this work until August, so I still had to dig into my Redundancy pot buy about £250. It's not much but it does feel significant. I'm also very wary of what I will actually get paid in August, so, until I see the colour of the money in my bank, I'll reserve judgement.
I have spent on a couple of things that were probably a bit wasteful over the weekend: a top for me (which was only £25, admittedly) and around £50 for a video clip, for work, but I hope to recoup that from the money I make from the job.
Everyone I've invoiced, so far, has paid me but I have given away a bit of my time for free to Abbey Office Solutions - they have been good to me though and it didn't take long to write their Print IT Magazine Awards entry. Also, we had our first PommyGranites gig on Friday and the money we received for that was pooled to the House, so that's a good contribution form me there.
As I keep saying: We shall see! Here are my Scores/Grades for the Week:
1) Current Account in Credit in its Own Right: 100% (A)
2) Keep Remorseful / Frivolous / Wasteful Spend to a Minimum: 90% (B)
3) Full Payment by Customers / Family / Band*: 100% (A)
*This is where I've sent an invoice/asked for payment.
Therefore, I award myself the following Score/Grade: 96% (B+)

I've got a lot of work on the go at the moment but I suspect I won't reach enough to pay myself this month, without shaving a little off my redundancy pot. The work I'm doing now will pay me next month but I can always make sure I use some of that to add to my Current Acc if I need it - after all I did earn it in July. I'll see how I fare, as I'm still in a good position at the moment.

I've had a good week and am already at the £1000 mark for earnings this month. I hope to be able to invoice a bit more.
I have started spending a bit of cash again, which, I'm feeling a bit weird about, as the last time I got any cash out was March 2020. Need to keep a steady hand on my purse.

I was paid by everyone I invoiced, including an interim payment for the work I've done for Heritage Safaris. My time-sheets are working well for this type of activity, but I just need to get on with the jobs in hand and stop procrastinating now. I've had my new business cards delivered today and they're so lovely. I also had to have some prints done at a copy shop last week because my printer toner has run out. I need to get some more.
I spent £100 (and so did Terry) on Tim's American dollars but that's manageable, as is Mum continuing to ask me to order things on line for her. I am also making sure that I get the money up front for printing costs for my clients.
My mind is a bit all over the place, this morning, so I'm just going to cut to the chase for the week:
1) Current Account in Credit in its Own Right: 100% (A)
2) Keep Remorseful / Frivolous / Wasteful Spend to a Minimum: 90% (B+)
3) Full Payment by Customers / Family / Band*:100% (A)
*This is where I've sent an invoice/asked for payment
Therefore, I award myself the following Score/Grade:93%(B+)
