    For some reason or another, I'm feeling rather poor this year, does anyone else feel the same?
    I'm not struggling by any means, just finding my finances more complex than ever before... it's more to do with increases in morgage repayments, increase in running costs of motorcar with fuel over £1/litre and the hike in gas and electricity prices, they really do add up don't they?!

    Know how you feel. My mates and I had promised ourselves a skiing holiday to USA or Canada in Feb next year. We haven't been to America for five years so thought it was definitely time to treat ourselves. I did all the research and was shocked at how much it was going to cost - even with $2 to the pound.

    We've unfortunately had to scale back our plans so it will be a week in France as per previous years.

    I bought my first house this summer, and the new RS4 in Sept, and I just had a two week holiday (very expensive if you're a contractor). I've spent a lot this year and now I'm feeling utterly broke just now too.

    The girlfriend is getting a hug for Christmas.
