What a day. Less than 2 hours sleep total. Maybe it is my excitement about Brussels that is stopping me from sleeping now

What a day. Less than 2 hours sleep total. Maybe it is my excitement about Brussels that is stopping me from sleeping now. 0245 Well here we are 31st December. Last day of the year. Can’t wait to get back to Brussels but at same time aching to save money, and reduce that credit card debt instead. I want to feel safe. And that means having a low enough credit card debt and enough money in my bank to let me put a deposit down on a studio and to be able to comfortably pay the rent every month. That is the place I want to get to this year.
But Brussels is so good I want to allow myself Brussels as well every month or two months. Otherwise, keep moving my stuff into —–, computer, —- blazers. Otherwise? Check out Vanessa in Soho on Monday, and Laetitia on Sunday? Keep my head DOWN at ——. Don’t draw any attention to myself whatsoever.

Even with my Vienna and Brussels expense my bank is staying within my overdraft limit

Even with my Vienna and Brussels expense my bank is staying within my overdraft limit. Even with 550 allowed for Brussels in January I will still stay within my overdraft. Meanwhile I have no need to use credit cards for anything so they will be quietly coming down alongside it. That last night stop off in Brussels cost me a huge amount of money, that would have made a great difference, but Christ what a great night it was! 5th Avenue and Empire. A game changing night.

Staying in this Wednesday after the £44 wasted on Anca and Sasha yesterday

Staying in this Wednesday after the £44 wasted on Anca and Sasha yesterday. Enjoying sitting in the living room these mornings with the Christmas tree, and chocolates, and snowballs, and Peaky Blinders.
The sexiest thing yesterday was the two two black haired Chinese girls in the Shaftesbury Avenue Chinese Medicine shop; I was so tempted.
Weight holding steady around 14’13.
Aims for next year: keep reducing my credit card debt EVERY MONTH. Travel to nowhere except Brussels, but allow myself that once a month. Publish my books. That’s it really. The main thing is Brussels, seriously reducing my debt by staying away from —– and Vienna. Moving more stuff into — after January 10th.
How boring it was drinking in the Iron Duke, Moggs, Roundtable, Chairmen. Let me stop these London drinking days on my days off. Better to do nothing, or go to Sunset Strip. At least something to see. Not just pointless drinking.

With someone with a brain as powerful as mine psychosomatic illnesses are always going to be much more prevalent and dominating

With someone with a brain as powerful as mine, psychosomatic illnesses are always going to be much more prevalent and dominating. I did a massive thing by giving up the coke & fizzy drinks after a lifetime of them, and the reward was immediate. I am doing a massive thing now by giving up strippers and cutting back massively on my travelling. The financial rewards are potentially massive. The fact is my massive debts CAN be cured and turned around very easily: just stop going to strippers and I will have an extra £400 a month to put to my credit cards instead. Just stop travelling and I would have an extra £700 a month to put to my credit cards. When the debt goes down, my happiness and confidence will increase, then my —- will get better as well. This IS curable. But the universe and my sub-conscious wants me to make the changes needed.

Yes my credit cards are ALL still maxed out and there are none I could use in Brussels to withdraw cash with

Yes my credit cards are ALL still maxed out and there are none I could use in Brussels to withdraw cash with, and yet remembering this should be the THIRD month in a row where the debt DOES go down a little bit; third month in row therefore where the minimum repayments will come down a little bit, and the interest charges will come down a little bit. The supertanker IS slowly turning. The turning bit is the slowest part of the operation, once the turn is affected progress will slowly start to pick up pace. The initial turn is the hard bit, and that is what I have effected.

Finally did my travel sums. In just two years I have spent £15,257 on my holidays

Finally did my travel sums. In just two years I have spent £15,257 on my holidays. That is £8,593 for hotels & transport and £6,664 in cash when I am there. (That is total of £8,637 last year and £6,620 this year). And that does not include my spending cash in Brussels next week and Vienna in December. So that will bring it up to £16,000 for sure. That is how I destroy my credit card debt. Despite spending 16K my debt “only” increased by 7K. So reduced holidays for sure. After December in Vienna a long hiatus. Just some Brussels trips. Berlin I have finished with for sure, and Munich I have finished with for sure, and Nuremberg. So once Vienna in December is done, I should be free to refrain from travelling as well (except short trips to Brussels). There is light at end of the tunnel. Stopping the strippers plus massively reducing the travelling. If I get the bug then just go to Brussels. No more long trips across Germany and Austria. Can even give up the DB Bahnticket after February. A massive reduction in my debt can be possible. If I had just done half those trips 7600 instead of 15.2, I would still only owe £15K. So make sure I DO half my trips now.
