I'm feeling kinds depressed as i look through the deals sections! There seems to be some decent deals flying around, but as I have no moneys................. its depressing!

from past experience, employers dont look soo much to degree/masters but instead look at what experiences you have! Every intereview i have been they have focused on my employment history rather than my degree!

plus you get the 2k scrappage deal! Sometimes its better to do that then repair the old car. Do vauxhall do the free insurance deal aswell?

Days after we got engaged and started to talk about plans, cost etc we came out with the rough figure of £10k ............. that figure has now doubled :w00t: and thats with us buying and making alot of the smaller bits. The main cost were finding is the venue for the reception and the cost of the sit down meal. Expensive stuff eh !!!

We have looked at the cheaper options, venues etc but they all lack a certain something or they are all just another wedding reception venue / room in a hotel which we didn't want.

my car is 2003....so not included in the scrappage deal :( they do the insurance for 19yrs+ but just looking at it, you need to have had your licence 2 years.....I have only had mine 18 months, perhaps its a sign! lol
