    Caught up on my finances, after staying in bed with Oscar until 10:36 this morning! Slovenly trollop, I never do that. I still feel exhausted though - I've been discussing with some high-powered pals and they say it's common to take upwards of six months to physically recover from burn-out. Eeeek. I hope it's not that long. I've been weary for five weeks now...and I'm fed up with it. For now, I am giving in to sleep when I need it - I'm taking lessons from the furry sleeping pro that lives with us.

    It really does, thanks CK (though you were probably on call for an emergency last night or something, I have no excuse beyond being slovenly!).

    You're a lucky guy; it sounds a brilliant scheme. Pity they're not more enlightened over here. Any theories as to why that scheme isn't more publicised?

    It could be as simple as each 'loan' the government or local authority or whoever looks after the scheme have would be a debt on their balance sheet and you need assets to support that.

    Sorry, that's the accountant coming out....

    A friend of mine bought her flat shared ownership (in Bucks) and her scheme was one which would allow her to pay off chunks which is what she was planning to do - however she ended up meeting a Turkish waiter on holiday and selling up her share and moving to Turkey instead. She tripled her investment in 3 years as the price of the flat had shot up. So although she had paid reduced rent on top during that time it was still a great investment. It was also easy to sell as they had a waiting list of applicants wanting to purchase. As a way to get on the property ladder I would recommend it - though LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION.....

    ooh which one?????

    Mr T, Lily, Sev and I are still in bed now Mrs F. Sometimes the body just needs to rest, I have Severus on me and Mr T has Lily on him. I am contemplating getting up and going to the gym, but I am just too comfy.

    I got a fitness tracker to try and work out my sleep pattern. Proud to say I’m the best in the world at sleeping a lot!

    Evidence...and Lori...can’t beat a cat at sleeping
