So you know in Monopoly you may pick up a ‘chance’ card and it reads ‘bank error in your favour. Collect £20’? Well I came home from London kinda avoiding calculating how much it cost me, I opened my mail and there’s a letter with a cheque attached for over 2k! Now that’s a bank error in my favour!
Being human I am now torn between doing the main thing I set out to do this year-clear my debt so I can travel, or using the money for some travel before the main event. Even as I write this a little voice inside me is screaming ‘clear your debt!’ ‘You’ll be debt free and all the money you save after that will be for big travel plans!’ And then there’s the other little voice saying ‘hmmmm…with this money I could have a few weekend experiences away’. For example, my mom wants to go to Zante in May, one friend wants to do Polo in London in June, or Germany with a friend in July, Tomatina in August…the list goes on!
When I went into the bank to cash the cheque in, they have also offered to pay me £4 a month for my loyalty! If that’s not attracting abundance I don’t know what is! They always say the rich get richer-I’m feeling that right now!
Considering I was only in London for 4 days, we crammed loads in! As soon as I arrived we walked to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, before stopping in a pub for a well-earned drink! And enjoyed night out in Shoreditch.
Saturday there was a ‘chocolate festival’ in Chelsea which turned out to be a food market with a few chocolate stalls! Not that we were complaining, we had an incredible kofte wrap with halloumi. Yum! We made our way back to central London and Piccadilly Circus. We had a few rest stops for milkshakes and pints before seeing Wicked.
Sunday Camden for a burrito and Balham for a house party, one of those extraordinary situations where you’re in London, in a room filled with Italians, Australians, Venezuelans, Welsh and one English person who wasn’t even from London.
Monday, rest and return home! And check the damage to my bank balance! All totally worth it! Now we have some dates in mind and have done a bit of planning for our trip which has gone from Bali for two weeks to New Zealand-Bali-Thailand! We can start saving properly and I will get my act together and start selling all the things I don’t need once I start travelling properly!
