it's 19:14 on Thursday 28 April 2016 and i'm in @TinaWeSaluteYou, East Village, London E20.

Tomorrow i might get paid.

Incase not, i've instructed the excellent Gareth Jones (colleague in Defra) to arrange a £2,500 emergency payment.

If this doesn't arrive then quite honestly i'm fucked.

I've exhausted my accessible savings, bank overdraft and credit card limit.

Effectively, right now, I'm in debt to the tune of £1,463 (excluding mortgage).

Apparently, the fault lies with the shared services company that Cabinet Office uses.

So next month i'll be on yet another tight budget.

i've instructed @VolcanoDance to buy me out of our property.

But this will take time.

So, what now?
