My bank seems to like me at the moment. They’ve increased the interest rate on my savings account by 0.5% AER, and also increased the credit limit on my credit card to £800. So I can save more, and also borrow more. They haven’t reduced the ridiculously high interest rate on my credit card yet though so I may apply for a new one sometime in the near future, although thus far I’ve always paid off the full balance before the interest kicks in.
Went hiking on Sunday – we went up Whernside, the second of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks. I’ve done Pen-y-Ghent before but not Whernside, and we had very good weather for it considering that it was early October. Sadly I didn’t take my camera, so no pretty pictures of the hill or the nearby Ribblehead Viaduct.
Not much going on this week – we’ve been trying to find Hari a full-time job as she’s not taking any modules until after Christmas (she unfortunately did not pass her resits in August). So far we haven’t had much luck but we’re trying again in Bradford city-centre tomorrow. I’ve also been at work quite a bit, which is good as I’m a little strapped for cash right now. That overdraft is looking like it might get used again.
The weekend is a big one for Hari and I. Sunday is our 1 year anniversary (scary, I know), so we’re going out for dinner on Saturday night – provided we can actually get through to the restaurant to make a reservation which we’ve not managed so far. On the Sunday itself we’re on a ghost walk in the centre of Bradford, and Monday is the dreaded Theory Test, which I’m semi-confident about.
