Good stuff abounds ladies and gentlemen.

If you’ve got a financial question and you think that several heads are better than one, then ask us, the m-network, and we’ll give you our opinions and suggestions. Not all questions can be answered, and we can’t offer professional advice, but all questions published will have several different answers and will be on display publicly for other people to add their comments too.

If you’re interested in taking part, contact me with your question.

Merry Christmas Everybody

Filed under: OT — Tags: , — plonkee @ 12:01 am

Happy Christmas Everyone.

I’m enjoying a fairly traditional Christmas at my dad’s house this year. One of my brothers wakes everyone up much earlier than is necessary (except me, I’m the eldest child therefore I sleep in or they’re all dead). We all, including my dad, have Christmas stockings plus my dad hides small gifts round the house and makes clues for my youngest brother to find – in return my youngest brother does exactly the same for my dad, but the clues are fiendishly difficult.

Present opening takes place with a glass of bubbly (or more than one glass) whilst listening to Slade, Wizzard and The Pogues.

For lunch we’ll be having turkey with all the trimmings – roast potatoes, mini sausages wrapped in bacon, stuffing, sprouts, parsnips and other veg. There will be Christmas crackers, so the wearing of silly hats and the reading of not funny jokes will be compulsory. Christmas pudding is followed by mints and coffee.

In the afternoon we skip the Queens speech and watch a film or play a board game. Any more food is of the help yourself out of the fridge variety.

Whatever you’re doing, hope you have a great Christmas.

Just a quick note that I’ve altered the look of the site a little with a new theme and logo (from logos for websites) – if you normally read in a feedreader you might want to head over and check it out.

If there are any features that you’d like to see on plonkee money, now is a good time to let me know. I’m toying with the idea of adding something so that you can email a post to a friend.
